"I bought this book to read with my younger brother and we both loved it. I always try to encourage him to keep up with his reading but he's usually not that big of a fan of books most of the time. To my surprise, he quickly became immersed into the story and I could tell that he was having just as much fun as I was reading it together. The story keeps up at a smooth and fast pace, which is of course very important in children's books, and it's adventurous and written really well. To say that I am satisfied with 'Skycastle, the Demon, and Me' would be an understatement, and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more releases by the author" ~ 5 Star Review, Jane L., Amazon
"The characters are well created and the story is exceptionally good. My great granddaughter just started reading it this morning and she is already pretty engrossed in the story. Great book. I definitely recommend." ~ 5 Star Review, Beverly C., Amazon
"Very well written story. Witty and charming for both myself and my son who is in 3rd grade. A great creative adventure about a demon and a boy. Looking forward to more in this series. I would highly recommend this book for kids around the 3rd grade. It's action packed and holds my sons interest. Filled with the stuff he loves. Thanks!" ~ 5 Star Review, M. Harbin, Amazon
About the Author: Andy MulberryAndy Mulberry loves to write stories filled with strange adventures, odd characters and mysterious circumstances. To say she was born holding a book in her hand reading would be a gross hyperbole. She lives in Southern California with her scowling teenager, a chubby blue cat-beast, an imaginary dog and one leaky roof.
* My Personal Review*
I thought this book was super cute! I wasn't sure what to make of the title at first, and then when I read the name of the castle I was like what? But when that boy orders a Demon it was hilarious! Then he gets one that is not "normal" by I guess what you would consider normal Demon standards! But somewhere along the way these two characters develop a sort of bond and I love the way Jack attempts to save Brink when he realizes something is wrong :) I love the way the author brings the reader into the story by using all their senses, you can literally SMELL the stench of Brink when he arrives.
I read this book in one sitting, I think it only took me an hour to read and plus I couldn't stop once I started, I had to find out how it ended! Now I can't wait for the next book to come out and see where the author takes the characters next! :)
