I just finished reading The Last Arakad--and Wow--I just loved it.

The characters are well developed (Maya, Uncle D., Thomas); I quickly became attached to them and their personal struggles. Next, the plot (a supernatural thriller taking place in Paris) was a real page-turner, well written, with each chapters ending with a cliffhanger. I found it absolutely entertaining and fast-paced. Finally, the book has depth, it talks about life and our place in the world The questions Maya and Uncle D. ask...more

I really appreciate that in a book. The characters were also easy to connect to. I also really enjoyed the blending of aspects from all religions and mythologies. Now for the not so gre...more

"Interesting and entertaining . . . The groundwork has been laid for a satisfyingly epic story . . . The Arakad novels could make for a stellar new YA series."
—Kirkus Reviews


Reviews from Amazon

“As a lover of the supernatural/fantasy genre, this novel blends the genre well with an action/thriller feel, and therefore puts it in the same league as the Da Vinci Code and books of the like.”
—Amazon Review.

“Captivating from the start, the main protagonist Maya and her younger brother Thomas are charact...more
