THE CHOSEN ONE - BY NICOLE STOREY




The Chosen One, by Nicole Storey, is the first novel in the Grimsley Hollow series. This big book has sixty-five 5 Star reviews. Way to go, Nicole! It is a coming of age/fantasy/scary/paranormal/sci-fi book. However, this novel can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. Read the free sample on Amazon and you'll see what I mean. I bought this book back in 2014 and love it.

    Book description:

    Eleven-year-old Gage Gilbert is autistic, loves Halloween, and has no friends. He longs to share real adventures – not just those conjured in his head.

    A mysterious key leads him to Eve, a young witch from another world called Grimsley Hollow. It’s a place where all magical beings live in safety and peace, but their realm is in trouble. Gage is the only one who can save them from a nefarious witch who has taken control.
    And the human world is next on her list.

    With Eve’s help (along with a potty-mouthed pixy, a trouble-making werewolf, a half-vampire, and a couple of dragons) Gage travels to Grimsley Hollow and together, they embark on a journey that will change them all.

    It’s a deadly race against evil, where extraordinary creatures stalk the land under a harvest moon and nightmarish monsters take form.

    Gage wanted friends and adventure, but had no idea they would come at such a dangerous price.

    Editorial Reviews

    Review

    "I loved the Harry Potter books and i can heartfully say that Nicole Storey has captured the magic and mystery of Grimsley Hollow just as good as JK Rowling did in her books but with the additional insight of what an autistic person has to deal with on a day to day basis." -Mr. Magic
    "Nicole Storey deals with middle school issues in such intriguing way that leaves kids mesmerized by the story instead of realizing that they are learning tolerance and acceptance in the process. I read the Kindle version and was so impressed that I bought the paperback for the sixth grade class at my school. From what I heard, the kids loved it as much as I did!" -Jane Carroll, Author
    "The Grimsley Hollow series is clearly not just for young adults! However, it does inspire young people to read. It's a reason to get off of their devices and video games and actually read a book. What a concept! Something that is decreasing as time goes by which is a real shame since young people can get the best education by reading. Let's hope that changes because books like these gets you thinking as there are many positive messages and virtues shared throughout these pages. It's actually much more than it seems. It's golden!" -Brend Perlin, Author

    Exciting, scary, a breathless chase to save Grimsley Hollow from the clutches of an evil witch.  This is Halloween at your doorstep, dark shapes in the woods at night.  Shivery wonderful!
