The Gikkie Bokkers by Jason Conway is a captivating tale full of adventure, mystical creatures and magical portals that transport you to another land. When the main character Hugo Muckbucket, a retired hunter, decides to visit the town he grew up in he soon discovers a family secret that will forever alter his life. Through the use of a glowing amulet Hugo is transported to another land with rivers made of stout and mystical creatures lurking in the shadows. Hugo learns that the creatures are protecting humanity from the evil creature that is trapped in the mountain. Hugo is finally able to make peace with the Gikkie Bokkers, but learns he is an heir to a much larger fortune...protecting the land of the Gikkie Bokkers as his father and grandfather did. Hugo must decide to accept this life changing responsibility or sentence the Gikkie Bokkers to certain demise.
Jason Conway has an incredible ability to create images in the reader's mind through his vivid descriptions. For example, the Gikkie Bokkers have "cat-like legs with long claws on large paws covered in a down like soft white fur. Their body was slightly bulbous and patchy dark brown with a white patch of belly fur. Four white fur covered arms with large hands and long claws protruded from its muscular shoulders topped off with an almost rabbit like head but with two huge yellow fangs protruding from its mouth. The eyes were luminous yellow and black like an owl." This impressive description easily brings the Gikkie Bokkers to life.
Jason is also a talented graphic designer and is responsible for the amazing cover design.
I highly recommend reading The Gikkie Bokkers and discovering the magic for yourself.
