Meet the Author

My name is M.M. Gavillet and I'm an independent author of young adult urban fantasy novels. I'm a lover of antiques because of the stories they could tell,avid collector of old gaudy jewelry and consumer of frozen yogurt. I'm a child at heart and still find enchantment even in the most mundane things. Writing is my outlet and sometimes I wish I could escape to the worlds I build. I can watch movies over and over just as much a reading a good novel over and over.

The idea for this story is a good one, but the writing is horrible. It is full of grammatical errors, typos, and seemingly unintentional repetition. If this author has potential, but is in need of a good proof reader or editor.

I taught the book was very good! There was some grammer errors but besides that i loved it. Also, I was exited to find out that the rest of the writers books are free!

The errors throughout this series certainly took a lot from the story...simple editing/proofreading would have saved it

Awesome book. It's a very easy read, keeps your attention and makes you want to read more. If you can overlook all the grammer errors and correct it yourself while reading, it's a great story that I would reccomend to anyone!

I found this book to be suspenceful, delightful and extremely well written . The editing could have been better on grammer . I look forward to reading the rest of this series. L. M. A.

This is a really good idea for a story, and the writing was pretty good. The book was 140 pages long. I would have added a twist at the end (such as "David was working with Abe all along" or vice versa). There was not much editing, so it was kind of hard to read. A few more commas would have cleared up a lot. All in all, though, I am glad I decided to read this book. It was worth it. - Dancingkitten

Not a bad start for a new writer. It was a little hard to follow at first and I would have liked some more detail in some spots but I really liked the the story idea and the characters could grow to be really great. With such awesomely unique worlds and characters this has the potential to be an amazing series! I look forward to seeing where it goes from here.
