Book Description

**New copy edited version available as of 04/27/12**


Ty is 10, and lives with his Mother and younger brother Xavier.  As any boy would, he takes life one day at a time and has his ups and downs.  One night, his ordinary life is changed when a dark figure snatches his brother from their room.  Ty follows, and thus begins the journey of a lifetime!

After being transported to the world of Nebulous, Ty discovers that his brother has been taken prisoner by the evil shape-shifting Queen Joro.  Unwilling to accept the fate that is in store for his brother, Ty embarks on a quest to rescue Xavier from the Queen's castle in the lake.

Along the way, Ty is faced with many trials and tribulations.  He encounters many dangerous obstacles, wondrous creatures, as well as spirits both good and troublesome.  Picking up some friends on the journey, these different characters bring magical aspects to Ty's life.

Nebulous is more than just a fantasy story, it's about the greatest power and magic of all, the human spirit.  Even at ten years old, Ty is unwilling to let his own fears and self doubt deter him from saving his brother.  The love and bond between them can't be broken, no matter what the cost.

Find out if Ty is able to save his brother and return home in the first book of the World of Nebulous series.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"My young daughter just started reading, and I'm definitely giving her Nebulous as part of an introduction to fantasy stories. Young readers will enjoy this story (and those young at heart)." - Alesha P, Amazon

"Keith Weaver wove a fantastic tale with his young adult book, Nebulous, my children and I thank you for this tale and look forward to the next in the series." - Amy M, Amazon

"This fantasy novel has it all, and I was truly impressed. I would recommend it to anyone who loves the fantasy genre or anyone who simply loves adventure." - Kim K, Amazon

"On the surface it is an exciting tale of adventure. On a deeper level, this is the tale of a young boy's growth and acceptance of responsibility. However, Mr. Weaver's writing style is the most pleasant surprise." - Franz M, Goodreads

"Lovely book that reminded me of the Princess Bride.  Very nice." - Maureen, Goodreads

3.0 out of 5 stars A flawed adventure (UPDATED 14/06/12) April 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have mixed feelings about Nebulous. While I enjoy novels of this type and this one kinda entertained me, there are some serious flaws that the author, Keith Weaver, should avoid in his future books.

I'll review the book by categories:

EDITING: Previous reviews of this book say that the book contains "little to none spelling mistakes". So I was naturally dissapointed when I encountered a mistake in the first chapter. And it not the only one. It's like the author used a spellchecker, but the spellchecker couldn't correct words that are well written but in the wrong context.
"He caught [site] of a spider", in place of "He caught sight of a spider".
"The rat had protruding teeth and [tale]" is referring to the TAIL of the rat, not a story.
"What do you want from an[d] old man like me?" should be just "an".
And some out of place exclamation and interrogation marks.

That is for the editing, now to the book itself:

CHARACTERS: I think this is the weak point of the book. The hero is more or less believable, however the rest of the characters have underdeveloped and contradictory personalities. The young protagonist is aided by three human-like animals in his quest for saving his brother. However, these companions have NO defined personality, even though the author tries to convince you otherwise.
When Ty meets Bake the cat-like man, Bake gives him an inspirational speech with a refinated language and Ty thinks he is sort of like a cat version of Socrates the philosopher. However, after their first encounter, Bake never talks like that again in the rest of the book. Also when they met for the first time he demonstrates to Ty his special ability: enter other people's dreams. Guess what, he never uses it again in their quest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nebulous December 6, 2011
By KimK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nebulous is a fantasy tale that brings all the stops to the table. It starts with young Ty witnessing his brother, Xavier, being taken by a mysterious presence. He follows in pursuit, and before he realizes the extent of the search, he wakes in a land that is completely foreign on all accounts.

Ty is a young boy who quickly comes to term with the fact that he is the only one who can save his brother.

I read Nebulous in two sittings. Each character came to life quickly and effortlessly. Author Keith Weaver did a wonderful job creating the comradery between Ty and his new allies Bake, Kits and Muji. I loved how the crew came together for the common cause of taking down the evil Queen Joro. A band of misfits that never even thought of giving up on the quest.

This fantasy novel has it all, and I was truly impressed. As far as editing and format, the book looks lovely with little to no editing errors. I would recommend it to anyone who loves the fantasy genre or anyone who simply loves adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting tale January 29, 2012
By Franz
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nebulous by Keith Weaver is an enchanting tale of a boy catapulted into a mystical world populated by enchanted creatures and evil monsters. The hero, Ty, wants only to find his brother, rescue him, and return him home unharmed.

On the surface it is an exciting tale of adventure. On a deeper level, this is the tale of a young boy's growth and acceptance of responsibility. However, Mr. Weaver's writing style is the most pleasant surprise. This tale is told as though the reader is hearing it from the mouth of a young adult. He has successfully captured the tone and speech patterns of a (precocious) young boy. While reading, I found myself vividly remembering segments of my life at this age when the world held nothing but mystery and all things were possible.

I look forward to future works by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for my kids to read this! January 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Keith Weaver's "Nebulous" took me back to that feeling of fresh, fun, and innocent fantasy adventure that I enjoyed as a young reader. Ty is a headstrong boy, but his love for his brother surpasses his flaws as he seeks to rescue Xavier who has been kidnapped by a sinister dark figure. He's led into the land of Nebulous, full of magic and wonder--and a dangerous witch-queen. Luckily he doesn't have to face the evil queen Joro alone--a cohort of friends (which includes a fox, and a badger as tall as his mom) bind themselves together in their quest to defeat Joro before Xavier is turned into a beast.

A few highlights of what I liked:

- Ty's reactions and character were believable for his age. He wasn't "wise beyond his years" or a 16-year old in a ten year-old's body.
-This book definitely reminded me in some aspects of "Chronicles of Narnia" (not a bad thing at all, since I'm a fan of that series)
-I wanted to know more about Nebulous. There is definitely more to know and explore, so I look forward to what else Mr. Weaver may have in store.

My young daughter just started reading, and I'm definitely giving her Nebulous as part of an introduction to fantasy stories. Young readers will enjoy this story (and those young at heart).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read for the whole family! January 23, 2012
Format:Paperback
Keith Weaver wove a fantastic tale with his young adult book, Nebulous, that was an enjoyable read from start to finish. As a parent I'm always on the look out for anything I can read with my 7 and 9 year old and Nebulous definitely hit that mark. The mystery and magic of the world of Nebulous was felt through Mr. Weaver's tasteful writing and I was able to picture not only the world itself but also the characters who inhabited the land.

Excellent job Mr. Weaver, my children and I thank you for this tale and look forward to the next in the series.

More About the Author

I was into fantasy as a young boy. The first book I have a real memory of is The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster, a favorite of mine still today. My mind has always had an affinity for the strange and make believe. I've been watching and reading horror, paranormal, fantasy and sci-fi ever since. In college, I fell in love with literature courses and started dabbling in my own writing.
