Having read Daniel¿s first book, The Vendetta House, I had certain expectations with this second book. I saw those expectations surpassed in a big way! As I suspected, it is very well written, and in a genre totally different than with his first book. He has an uncanny talent for establishing his characters. As with that first book, he brings his readers into the story, to the point that they feel that they know these characters personally. Myles is a character that you can really feel for, as you see his life¿s challenges, and how he deals with them. The abuse he and his family undergo from his father, and the irreversible damage it causes, does at times put a tremendous strain on your emotions. I know that it strained mine at several points. After a major tragedy at home, Myles life changes dramatically. He now faces a new school, and with it, the challenge of making new friends. Daniel continues to introduce new characters to this fine story, well establishing each one. As I continued reading, I found myself impressed by how he presents these new characters, as if they were my own neighbors. I am an avid reader, and have read the novels of some very well known authors, yet none has been as good at placing me directly into the story, as Daniel has. As Myles meets Stacie, a girl with a mysterious past, he is drawn to her. It seems as if Myles¿ life has finally gotten better. Stacie eventually brings Myles to her special place, a beautiful tree that resides in a meadow clearing, surrounded by the woods. Again, Daniel¿s attention to detail in describing this place makes you feel as if you were there. In this place, they share their many personal thoughts and feelings. They seem like they were meant for each other, but then Myles meets Seth, a handsome boy he becomes friends with. Myles begins to feel something he cannot fully understand. He has become attracted to Seth. This story will take you on a wonderful journey of Myles¿ life, filled with the challenges a young man faces while growing up. There is heartbreak and sadness, but there are also some good times and laughter. I do not want to give away any of the story, so I will say instead that you should buy this book and read it, as I did. You will not be disappointed! There are some excellent lessons to be learned from it. This story does not show any signs of weakness. I haven¿t found a weak point in it. Daniel¿s kept the story moving along throughout. Most stories have their slow points, you know, where the story line seems to drag a bit? This one doesn¿t! I found myself very absorbed in this tale. Once you¿ve read this book, you¿ll feel as I do. This is the second story Daniel P¿Lopez has published, and if these first 2 stories are just the beginning for Daniel, I have to think that he will have a very long writing career, and I will anxiously await all of his future work. Great writers aren¿t born every day, Daniel is a very gifted writer, and in time he will be considered one of the greatest! Michael P. Craig
