Editorial Review:
Definitely Not Kansas is the first volume of the Nocturnia Cycle, a series for both adults and young readers, middle grades and up.

Two remarkable, adventuresome kids—Emma and Ryan—discover a parallel world that is the source of all our most well-known monsters. Werewolves, vampires, mummies, trolls, zombies? Certainly. But the world of Nocturnia is also home to some more esoteric creatures such as Rakshasa, Djinni, Ethereals, and the Silent Ones.

Welcome to Nocturnia, where the monsters have their own nation states and humans are either slaves, or food, or both. Where even the flowers will suck your blood if you venture near.

Emma and Ryan have followed the trail of their missing older brother, Telly. When they discover that Telly is not only in Nocturnia, but also involved with the one entity that could bring an end to the human world, Emma and Ryan begin a desperate search to find him and escape the parallel world of nightmares. As they search, they come to suspect that they did not arrive in Nocturnia by accident. But if not, why are they here? Are their destinies somehow entwined with this nightmare world?

“The world the authors have created is complex and compelling, with its own nations and politics, steam-powered vehicles and wide array of monsters. The general rules for vampires, zombies, mummies, and other beloved horror staples are tossed aside here, the authors changing things up and making them their own. Readers will root for (and against) the characters, enjoy the abundance of humor, the world-building, and the fresh spin on many iconic monsters. Definitely Not Kansas is a book that anyone can enjoy. Above all, it’s sheer fun. The trip to Nocturnia is well worth the price of admission, and a cliffhanger ending ensures another visit when the sequel comes along.” — Hellnotes

“We’re definitely not home anymore, and I doubt Dorothy would last a minute in Nocturnia. Munchkins would likely find themselves on a menu in this imaginative, fascinating homage to Oz. Protagonists Emma and Ryan propel this tale as they take the reader along a journey of survival and discovery. Both are strong lead characters and the cast of monstrous villains are anything but cookie-cutter caricatures. Surprises await around every corner and one can only imagine where the next book will travel. Definitely Not Kansas takes the reader by the throat and the heart, and never relents. Anyone who loves a good story, and who still embraces the youth within, will tumble head over heels into the vortex for this new series.” — Monster Librarian
