Age Group: Middle Grade

J Wiz hops on the writing scene with a splendid tale of undead action and mayhem.

Nolan and his family move to a new town. He’s not much impressed with the place and struggles to feel comfortable. Spending most of his time at home and inside while he’s adjusting, he finds a strange hiding place in his basement, which contains a key.

Eventually, Nolan makes some friends and they start telling him stories about a man who used to live in their little town. One thing leads to another and they figure out what the key is for, and then they wish they hadn’t.

The Zombie Mist rises, bringing forth more than just the undead. Nolan’s family and friends are in trouble and it’s all his fault. Will he be able to figure things out and save them all? Or will the Zombie Mist take everything from him?

This book is an action packed delight of undead horror and drama. The age group is set perfectly and the author keeps the reader enthralled throughout the entire tale. I give this book 3 QUILL for being an all around great read.

Attack Of The Vampire Snowmen by Benny Alano
ISBN: 13-978-1460973516
Age Group: Middle Grade
You don’t see too many ‘inventive’ Christmas stories anymore – people seem to want to stay with the classic, well tried stories. If you want something that will change your mind about everything Christmas and carry you on a journey of fresh imagination and daring, this is a book you’ll enjoy.

Benny Alano takes vampires, zombies, and all things Christmas, throws them into the blender of your mind and produces a delightful concoction that will leave you drooling for more.

In the story, Laidenn, an elf at Santa’s workshop, finds out there is a dark side that wants to destroy Christmas – Vampire Elves who sneak in and try to mess up the toy making process; he soon finds out there is more to it than that when they transform into Vampire Snowmen. With Santa’s help, he begins training to become a ‘Dark Elf’ so that he can help protect the Christmas he loves.

His training is not yet complete when Santa is kidnaped by the dark side of the Christmas tree, and he has to convince the other, oblivious elves of the danger Santa is in and enlist their help. His finds his biggest allie in Mrs. Claus who shows him how to summon the Undead Elves he needs to make his rescue a success.

When the Undead Elves arrive on the scene, Laidenn is reunited with an old friend who will help him greatly in becoming a ‘true’ Dark Elf and save Christmas as we know it.

Because of originality I have to rate this book at 3 QUILL. For a Middle Grader it will be an exciting book they’ll love and will read again and again!
