Colin McCool is confused. After nearly running over a leprechaun with his motorcycle he can suddenly see the horrible shape his town and friends are in. For the last couple of weeks the entire town and everyone living in it have been living under a spell. The spell has convinced everyone they are living their dreams--the perfect job, the tastiest food, the loveliest home, etc.
With his best friend Jessie, (female), he finds out his job is to deal with the supernatural creatures in his area, after training with a druid who has watched over the males of the McCools for almost 2000 years; the first thing they have to do is get rid of the creature pretending to be mayor.
As the author states, this story, the original first in a planned series, differs in many places from Junkyard Druid. For one thing, this story was written for young adults, although appropriate for younger readers, and Junkyard Druid is aimed more at young adults and adults. The author admits to inconsistencies with the characters, and the occasional plot hole, but humorously states he kind of likes the story in it's imperfect state and chooses not to fix the mistakes because of sentimentality
This showcases Colin's first introduction to the supernatural, how Jessie winds up as part of his team, and introduces the druid who will be his trainer and mentor for years to come. Colin is quite a bit younger; just beginning to leave childhood and age into a young teenager. He's trying to stop sucking his thumb, which the other kids tease him about, and misses his father, who died in a war only a few years ago, terribly.
The story is unpolished, but if one ignores the inconsistencies between this story and the next, the basic information of the characters and how they met provides useful background for the next book.
I really enjoyed reading about Colin's introduction into the magic realm. I liked getting this sneak peak into Colin's life before Junkyard Druid and feel that it makes the events in the beginning of Junkyard Druid so much more meaningful and heartbreaking.
Loved the characters Colin and Jesse. Nice steady pace of Colin recruiting his best friend Jesse to help go after the evil that changed his town. The were spots the two could have you laughing.
Thank you, for letting me read your story.

Shows promise that I am sure will be lived up to when I get around to reading some more of the series.
