Today is LOST BOY release day, and I’m so excited for all of you to read it!
LOST BOY is off to a great start. Publishers Weekly gave it a starred review and says “Multiple twists keep the reader guessing, and the fluid writing is enthralling”. Booklist says, “This wild, unrelenting tale, full to the brim with the freedom and violence of young boys who never want to grow up, will appeal to fans of dark fantasy.” Starburst Magazine says, “This audacious and gripping treatment of this well-known story is expertly told by Henry’s emotive, evocative prose.”
It’s one of Amazon’s Best Books of the Month in Science Fiction and Fantasy for July and they gave it a nice shout-out in their Omnivoracious editor’s list. Kirkus Reviews named it one of “Your Best Bets for Fascinating SF/F/H Reads in July“. Barnes & Noble named it one of the Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Books of July and gave it a wonderful review here.
Romantic Times gave LOST BOY 4 1/2 stars and named it a Top Pick for July. Bookish named it one of their Hot New Releases, and Goodreads recommended it as one of their “7 Great Books Hitting the Shelves This Week“. It is also one of Hello Giggles 15 Books We Can’t Wait to Read in July.
Want to get a copy of LOST BOY and meet me in person? I’ll be signing copies at Anderson’s Bookshop in LaGrange on Monday July 10th at 7pm (details here) and at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego on Friday July 21st (details here). I’ll also be attending San Diego Comic Con – details to come once programming is confirmed.

If you’ve already picked up LOST BOY and loved it, would you consider leaving a review? Reviews help authors so much – especially on online retailer sites like Amazon and Barnes & Noble because of the way these sites recommend books to other people. The more reviews the more often the book is recommended. Thank you so much!
