Overview

"Estevan Vega packs subtle power and menace in every sentence. Prepare to lose sleep when you enter Vega's dark literary landscape." - Scott Nicholson, The Red Church

“It’s a testament to his talent that Estevan Vega can turn a dark, disturbing story into an intriguing page-turner. Quirky, complex characters and Vega’s storytelling skills make Arson a must-read…and Vega an author to watch.”
—Robert Liparulo, bestselling author of Deadlock and The Dreamhouse Kings

"Arson is every bit its namesake: a sinister story that slowly licks at the edges of your subconscious until it fully engulfs you in a firestorm of fascinating characters, twisting plotlines, and an explosive ending. A great read and Estevan Vega is a talent to watch for sure!"
— Jon F. Merz, bestselling author of The Kensei

REVIEWS:
“Vega is definitely a talented writer with a white-hot literary future.”
—The Middletown Press

“Arson is not to be missed. It is densely layered, tense, packed with surprising compassion, and written with great courage…Groundbreaking!”
—Salt Lake City Examiner

“In a fortunate writer’s career, there is one book that inevitably launches its author to a new level of success and visibility, and Arson may very well prove to be just such a book for Estevan Vega.”
—Hartford Examiner

“Estevan Vega’s Arson proves he is an author to be reckoned with.”
—The Christian Manifesto

“[Arson] could be compared to other young adult books such as Jumper or even a young coming of age super-hero genre story. And even at times flecks of the Twilight series.”
—Title Trakk

“In Arson, Estevan Vega has created a character as unique and captivating as Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas. With a fresh voice and an engaging style, Vega's storytelling is something to pay attention to.”
—Mike Dellosso, author of Darlington Woods and Darkness Follows

“…[A] gifted young writer, and I expect to see great works from him in the near future.
—Bryan Davis, bestselling author of the Echoes from the Edge and Dragons in our Midst series

“Wonderfully envisioned and readable. The story of a young man with a secret talent he doesn't want to be forced to use keeps readers edgy and waiting, and hoping he'll let it all out.”
—John Neufeld, author of Edgar Allan and April Fool.”

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Esther is getting old. No, she is old. Aging with every blink, with every breath.

After a life full of power and purpose, she is met with the harsh reality that she is now obsolete, and her fragile moments are short. On the eve of the last night in the city she has called home for years, Esther and her lover Jacob share their fears and their romance for this world over one last meal, as they wait in fearful unrest for what is coming.

    I receieved this book from the author to give an honest review:

    Let me just say the cover is SWEET! It just gives me chills looking at it. :D

    Very interesting short read.
    Pretty much Music Box is a bit of a creepy short story.

    Music Box seems to be about Esther who is obsessed with how she looks, and and is enraged with Rider who is going to take everything away. While she stares into a mirror and starts watching herself just deteriorate, she goes back through her memories of her and Jacob together. The love that they have felt. It seems as though over time beauty finally fades away and there is nothing you can do about it. Jacob her love on the other hand is trying to get her to accept her fate of what is to become.

    I was a bit confused at the end, but through out it all I truly enjoyed reading this story. I like Estevan Vega's writing style and can not wait to read more books by him.
