When he was a boy, Siv McCaig came face-to-face with a monster. After a childhood lived in fear, he encountered it again.
Siv just wants to work his trade as a blacksmith, play cards at the saloon, and watch the stars. But he'll never be at peace without answers. What was the monster that burned down his house? Where did it come from? And will it ever come back again?
His search becomes a battle for his planet's survival. Only two things might keep all of Verde from falling to the horrors of Siv's nightmares, but they've been lost for two hundred years: technology and magic.
Like a Good RPG
I had not picked up a young adult novel in a while, so I was not sure what to expect at the start of Yesterday's Demons. That is why I was caught off guard with the book's intense opening chapter. It sets off the story in motion well.
I enjoyed the adventure of Siv and his party. For me that I'm just a little bit older from the YA demographic, it brought back good memories of fantasy and adventure books as well as role-playing games from NES and Super NES. The story elements and overall setting feel like a good RPG. The world and its rules are well established. The author clearly has put a lot of thought into the overall backstory. The action sequences were excellent and well put into the page.
Give this title a try. I'm looking forward to part two.
