Editorial Reviews

Review

"Full of intricate details that spill off the page like spun gold, this whimsical tale will delight any reader with an interest in craft or magic. The story follows a wooden doll who braves the outside world only to learn how terrifying reality can be. The characters and plot work together to create a complex and spooky story that will leave readers wanting more."
  • The BookLife Prize in Fiction
"Reminiscent of Neil Gaiman, of the darkest episodes of Doctor Who, of some of the madness of Tim Burton, Devon Michael's [Hollo] is an artfully told, dark, and frightening coming-of-age tale with a twist."
  • Marian Thorpe - author of Empire's Daughter
"I present to you... a present. That's right, this book by Devon Michael is a gift. That's how good this book is... it's a gift to everyone who enjoys storytelling mastery!"

About the Author


Excerpt from "An interview with Devon Michael":
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I'm so involved in the story that my ego just flat dissolves away. Those moments when characters borrow my face to figure out how they feel about things, and I don't realize I'm doing it. Moments in public, sitting in front of a page, mulling over the words and being asked why I look so intense, or murderous, or angry. Being able to answer that, no, none of those things, just that a person in my head is having a very bad day. Thankfully, people befriend me anyway.
I also like the idea that its something I'll never really master.
Who are your favorite authors?
I identify with a lot of different storytellers, to innumerate quickly: Brian Jacques, Diana Wynne Jones, E.B. White, Neil Gaiman, and J.K. Rowling all on the shortlist, but as a student of writing I have to pay homage to a lot of extraordinary writers like Dickens, Poe, Hemingway, Stevenson, et al.
I think it's really hard to say who a favorite author is as a young author because it's more than just being a fan at that point. These are the people who struck such an intimate chord with you that it actually sat you down to work.
But my favorite author, if I'm really answering the question, might have to be the Poet/Philosopher David Whyte, simply because he's the one on my list I have actually managed to meet in person, and who, arguably, impacted me in the most significant way.

"I think it was when I was about 3 years old and I was read Charlotte's Web. That was the inevitable moment I discovered stories were just about the most important thing one could do with life. It took years of growing up for me to come around and realize that, for better or worse, this was what I was going to do.

I started writing when I was very young, but not on purpose. Stories were, simply, the best way for poor kids to play with sticks and make it meaningful. Now as an adult, I write full-time, except when I'm playing with sticks."

3.0 out of 5 stars Hollo is a fantasy story part coming of age and part fairy tale with magic thrown in for good measure. Which sounds great
