This is a great story that I can recommend to anyone who likes a fast-paced middle grade read.
It was an exciting read and at times I felt as though I had an adventure/sci fi movie playing out in my head.

The Trixies are a nasty group of characters that get out of hand and wreck havoc on the town because the forces that had held them in check are suddenly removed. It’s Olivia’s accidental involvement that gives hope to the one remaining ancient Guardian.

The dynamics of Olivia Stone’s group of f

This book is aimed squarely at the middle-grade (or junior fiction) age level and I think it hits the mark. The story line keeps moving, and there is plenty of action and suspense to keep the reader interested and wanting to proceed to the next chapter, which of course, is the ultimate aim for the author. It sometimes even has elements of a junior Stephen King novel, without being too graphic for sensitive children.
It should appeal to confident readers; however, I believe that even children in t

Author Jeffery E Doherty adores storytelling with a vivid imagination perfect for children’s fantasy. Olivia Stone is an engaging character with all the determination of a 12-year-old on a mission. Helping Yip the grotesque that Olivia thought was a gargoyle is her mission against the trixies who are deceitful and evil. The trixies are deliciously evil with specific characteristics which make them plausible.

Olivia Stone learns she not only has magical powers, which she learns to control with th

Normally I don't read genres aimed at any age less than adult, but this book reminded me of how magical children's fantasy / horror can be.
The myth of trixies and grotesques was unlike anything I have ever read before, and the fast paced action kept me turning pages all the way to the end.
Jeffrey has a humorous style of writing that draws amusement from observations of his characters and their interactions with each other. The elements of gore were delightfully horrifying without being overly gr

Jeffery E Doherty – (Bio)
I make up stuff, I’m arty and I’m a bit of a nerd.
I love telling stories. One of those stories starts with "No, when I was in the Wiggles they already had a Jeff so I had to use my middle name..." Whole bunches of kids at the school where I work believe I was once Eddie the Evil Wiggle. Writing stories down for others to read and enjoy is one of the most special thing any
