Thoughts? I don't like how he ends the books with a begining of another.

Joseph Daly | 3 comments Oh yea the Golden Compass, I gotta put that one on my list and read it before the movie comes out.

Jaime, sorry to hear that you hate ending that lead into another book. I just released my first novel is a series for young readers called:

Strange Town Volume One: The Woods Behind Trevor Malone's House

At the end my main character Trevor finds the clue to the next adventure. But I think you might like the book anyway...just don't read the last 2 pages!

It's available on and I've posted a free sample of the book on my Goodreads Author's profile page.

LOL! I will remember not to read the last 2 pages! I grew up with woods behind my house, so it will be very interesting to see what kind of adventures Trevor goes through. I will definitely check it out!

Also try The Dark is Rising.. that movie just came out too, but the book is better!

Thanks so much for your support and I would love to hear your feed back on my book!

I loved the movie version of The Seeker way more than the book. The books are written in that old school British style where the kids are frightfully naive and the story progresses so slowly. I thought the movie added some much needed intensity. The main kid did a great job and I loved the overly dramatic cinematography and music because it made it more of a thriller.
