Jack Death by M.L. Windsor

Jack and Nadine are neighbors and go to the same school.  They both have big secrets they can't tell.  Jack would prefer to be independent but since he gets bullied all the time it's nice to have a friend around.  Even if she is a girl.

Creston Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published September 13th.

This is a far out tale of imaginary creatures and a war between good and evil.  There are Blacks and Goldens, there are fixers, and everyone in this world seems to be mixed with some magical or evil being.  The bloodlines have been mixed for years.  The purebred goblins and other carnivorous beings are in a "reserve" where they are separated from the public.  But there is a diabolical plot being carried out and the rock wall that keeps them in is detonated and horror is let loose upon the town.

There's lot of action, lots of unusual characters and you learn Jack and Nadine's secrets.  There will be more to this story.  Jack has no idea what his role in life is to be and Nadine hasn't found out just what magical being she is yet.  I'm sure there will be another book in this series to help flesh all that out.

This is a great story for middle graders because it's a busy story and you don't have time to feel sorry for the folks being eaten.  You find yourself just waiting for the next development...
