Editorial Reviews

Hand Carts
The writing was very well done and kept me turning the pages. At times my heart was racing, wondering how our hero was going to make it out alive. There was one time I actually jumped, startled by the turn of events!
Small Press Bookwatch
A psychological thriller with a lot to think about, "Marysvale" may be an ideal pick for anyone looking for a story of someone in a constant conflict with a dark secret.

Meet the Author

Jared Southwick enjoys traveling and experiencing different cultures, cuisines, and associated foodborne illnesses. He once went night diving in the Pacific Ocean where, although he didn't actually see it, he's sure that a great white shark almost ate him. Jared petted an alligator in the Okefenokee Swamp, and a wild, heavily sedated black bear in her den. He explored the islands of West Africa, where his foot was attacked by a very ferocious, tiny octopus. However, he has never encountered a Brean…

He and his wife live in a quiet, friendly city, in the shadow of the Wasatch Mountains, where strange monster sightings are uncommon.

    Highly Recommended

    The town of Marysville is not a Merry place. The town is surrounded by tall hairy blood thirsty monsters called the Brean. They have six inch long black fingernails and fangs the size of daggers. The only thing keeping Marysvale from these creatures in the woods is a wall that surrounds the city. The people in town are not allowed to leave Marysvale and those that try to go to Marysvale rarley survive the trip through the woods. Things weren't always like this in Marysvale, originally the Brean we're not dangerous but something changed a few years back and the Brean started a rampage across the countryside.

    One man that might hold the key to Marysvale's future is John Casey, a 22 year old man who doesn't know a lot about his past. John has the power to see into people's souls, he knows people's secrets and tries to protect his friends from evil. He also has the tendency to get himself into trouble. He's now on the run to Marysvale where he will find love, battle monsters and find out that what is within the walls of Marysvale is just as terrifying as what surrounds it.

    Marysvale by Jared Southwick is a book that people of all ages will enjoy. There is some violence but it is not overly descriptive and people who like to read young adult novels will enjoy this book just as much as older readers. Marysvale is a book that works on many levels and has something for everyone.

    People that are into romance will enjoy the love story between John and a woman named Jane. Horror lovers will enjoy watching John try to escape from the brean and action lovers will enjoy all the fighting scenes within the city. There is also some mystery involved as you try to figure out what happened in John's past and how much the other characters know about him.

    What I enjoyed most about Marysvale is how unpredictable it is. In the beginning the author sets up who you believe are going to be the heroes and villains in the story but the main villain is quickly dealt with in the first two chapters and John takes his horse and goes on the run. At this point I wondered where this story was going as it turns from a fantasy story to a horror story as John meets the brean and has to run for his life.

    Another thing I really enjoyed about Marysvale is the social commentary that is given on the people that live in Marysvale. No one can enter or leave the city and in order to have safety from the monsters outside, the people inside have given up all their personal freedoms. In the town the government holds all the wealth as the townspeople live in squalor. The townspeople fear whats outside the walls more then what is inside. I fealt Jared Southwick was giving a metaphor for how we lost some of our personal freedoms after 9/11 and he did a good job of pulling it off.

    I highly recommend this book. My only two issues with it was that there were a couple of unanswered questions and some of the characters that we're introduced in the beginning we're never heard from again. Just recently though a sequel to Marysvale was released called Alyth which I'm hoping will answer all of my questions. Marysvale is an unpredictable thrill ride that will leave you anxious for the sequel.

    Excellent book!!

    Honestly, I got the ebook cuz it was a buck. SO WORTH READING!!! I can't wait for Alyth!! Great action adventure w/a unique paranormal angle and just a sprinkle of romance. Great blending of present w/backstory. Would interest male and female readers and really reminds me of another fantastic author that writes about greek and roman mythology and has the initials R.R. Keep up the good work, Mr. Southwick!!

    Marysvale is a MUST READ, but I wouldn't want to live there!

    Marysvale is an amazing book. It drew me in from the first scene. John Casey is a man with a secret, and therefore a loner. He lives in a dangerous world and fights the growing anger within himself as he watches men control and harm those they should protect. He finally goes too far in protecting the abused and has to flee for his life, heading into the dangerous forest to the north of his latest home. An even worse danger is hunting him now. Can he reach safety and uncover his hidden past in time to help those he loves - and himself? I absolutely loved this book. Marysvale has all the elements of a classic hit: suspense, intrigue, adventure, hidden pasts, tyrants, monsters, romance, heroes, and a noble horse. Jared Southwick is a talented story teller who gives you just the right amount of information to keep you turning the pages and wondering if you have it all figured out yet, just in time for another surprise. I read this clean read in a few days. While it deals with the heavy subjects of abuse and oppression, they are handled with a delicate touch that allows the reader to place himself in John Casey's place and wonder how well he would deal with the situation. I cheered for John throughout the book, as he threw himself into every danger and fought a good fight. The romance in the story is budding, with so much hope for a future away from the bleak existence in Marysvale. Only by reading the book will you know if the hope is still alive. Marysvale is a must read! I am a definite fan of Mr. Southwick and anxiously await his next book. I wouldn't be surprised to see Jared Southwick on a Best Sellers list in the future.

    Couldn't put it down! Thanks for the adventure Jared! Well Done!!

    I met Jared at Costco when he was doing a book signing and decided to give his book a try, as I like to support my local community. When I got home I jumped on Amazon to read reviews on his book (as I hardly ever buy something without reading about it first on Amazon) and read about how people couldn't put it down. Excited to dive in, I began my journey that night. Within three sittings and 48 hours I had consumed the book and was wishing that I could pick up Alyth (the second book in the series, due out Fall 2011) and continue the adventure with John, Jane, Sarah, and Hannah (the main characters in the book). This is by far the quickest I have ever read a book. Jared, as a debut author, has an amazing gift at keeping the reader interested and wanting to turn the page as quickly as possible to find out what's coming next. He also winds down every chapter in a way which makes you long to read on. IMO this book is fantasy/suspense/thriller with a little bit of romance. If you want a FUN read this book is definitely IT. I can't wait for more from Jared and would recommend this book to anyone/everyone that enjoys any genre aforementioned. BTW this is my first book review - if you're even on this page please check out this book! I'm going to give it to all of my family to read and even have a family member, a librarian, who has ordered it for their local library after hearing about it from me! Jared, hope you can make Alyth as fun and engaging as you did Marysvale!
