Book Description

It all started the day Gus murdered the ficus.

Which also happened to be the day Wallis watched her hair turn to gold.

After an unspoken and even more unlikely alliance forms the day their parents marry, Wallis and Gus soon discover that there’s a reason for every feeling of un-belonging they’ve ever known. It doesn’t take long for the adventure of a lifetime to begin right under their feet -- teaching them to look beyond what they are able to see into what they are able to know. And maybe even remember.

This is a story about true things that sit just a layer behind what our eyes can see.

This is a story about how two misfit kids learned their own value -- not just in the ordinary world around them, but in the extraordinary world of the way things truly are.

Journey with Wallis and Gus to lands far beyond, which, it turns out, are hiding just beyond the cracks of this world.

The Last Beholder ranks up there with the Chronicles of Narnia. Wyatt and Wynn have created a magical world that completely captivates the reader. Great plot and character development. Cannot recommend this book enough! This release is just in time for Christmas presents.

The Last Beholder is a magnificent tale of adventure and intrigue. Once you begin reading you will not be able to put it down. Wyatt and Wynn have created a mystical world full of surprises and action that tells the tale of two step siblings who find their higher purpose in a mystical world.

A perfectly delightful book that you will definitely enjoy from cover to cover. Don't miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Basically Everything Ever October 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A lot of books dealing with worlds and contexts that are whimsical or magical in nature can get lost in those worlds and forget or neglect their characters. Not so in The Last Beholder. Quite the opposite actually. This book manages to combine a richly designed world and characters that are just as layered, interesting and inspiring. If you want a book that will hold you and your imagination hostage in the best way possible and make it so unbelievably hard to put it down until you finish every single word, then this is the book for you. Cannot recommend it enough.

This is just a delightful and enthralling read. The characters are rich, layered, and well-developed. The plot itself is full of beautiful imagery in the vein of The Chronicles of Narnia. Definitely a great read for anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Like Narnia And Potter, You'll Love Beholder October 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I LOVED this book. It is so well done. The storyline is just perfect. The characters are great and the "fantasy" world the authors have created is just right. The "alternate universe" plotline has been executed so well by so many franchises (Narnia, Potter, Lemony Snicket, etc.) that the bar is set pretty high for this genre. That's why it's so refreshing when it's done well like it's done in Beholder. PLUS, the authors manage to operate in a genre where originality is often lacking and create something that feels totally fresh and new. You will LOVE this book. Can't wait for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful, magical story October 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Amazon Verified Purchase
I found The Last Beholder to be incredibly imaginative and expansive, while still holding a ton of charm and humor. The two main characters are wonderfully fleshed out and human and really served as perfect conduits in to a magical fantasy realm that I didn't want to leave. The authors exhibit real craft in bringing this other-worldly place to life, and as a woman, I really appreciated the complexity and strength of the female characters.

Ultimately, this story does what any great story should do: it elevated my senses and opened my mind up to something bigger. The artwork and design is gorgeous as well. Another reviewer mentioned this book being perfect for holiday gifts and I couldn't agree more.
