“The narrative is told in a readable, chronological manner, and the squires are appealing characters, as is their comical banter.” – BlueInk Review

Newcomer Dave Maruszewski will start a multi-book series for middle graders beginning with the exciting “The Dark Beast.” The Dark Beast is the first book of the Raven, Romda and Ravai series. This trio of newly knighted friends will embark on journeys throughout a kingdom of mystical danger while dealing with everyday challenges that most youth face.

The book series will premiere on February 8, 2021 and focused on creating an enjoyable experience to those youth who normally don’t like to read. Shorter paragraphs, higher dialogue and focusing on interactions are some of the devices that are employed to encourage non-traditional readers.
