About Daniel Peyton

I am a newer author on the scene and I love to write. My recent books, The Crystal Needle and The Crystal Needle:A Christmas to Remember have both been well received thus far.

I loved the story of how Bark came to be. How he learned how to deal with his new situation and even managed to find a purpose in his life and a place in the world. This is a wonderful story if you are looking for something outside the box but yet a classic at the same time. A great story Dan!

Review by: Katherine Eccleston on July 16, 2013 :
Bark: Origins of a Superhero by Daniel Peyton is a fun, romantic, action-packed adventure....and it's a free read!! The story follows Joshua Henderson, a security guard and volunteer firefighter who is mutated into a half-dog/half-man by an evil scientist. After the mutation, Joshua cannot talk and has no memories of his past. He is found in a cave by Frost, a superhero. Frost befriends him, helps him to join a team of superheroes, and gives him the name Bark.
This story was a quick, fun read. It was an interesting concept and had a lot of action. The characters were great - I loved the friendship between Frost and Bark. I also liked the fact that the author included drawings of the characters throughout the book.

When I began reading this novella I could not help but be reminded of a TV series I watch which has a similar concept of Altering a persons DNA in order to create a superhuman. However the similarities began and ended there. In this story we see how Joshua Henderson's identity transforms as a result of an experiment forced upon him.

Joshua becomes a dog like human who can no longer speak but only barks, hence his nickname 'Bark'. Hidden from the world, he becomes part of a superhuman team to secure the safety of others.

This novella is Bark's journey in realising that despite his outward change, he can still use his super strength and quick reflexes to help others.

The ending was slightly unrealistic since Bark and Frost fall in love: I'm not quite sure how that will work out considering he can only communicate in barks and woofs.

I thought the story began with more narrative than I would have liked but as it was a novella, this did not bother me too much. Overall a light, interesting read. (:

Favourite Quotes:

Looking into her quivering eyes, his wish to speak again had never been stronger than it was at that moment. But fate is a funny, fickle thing, taking what it wants and leaving what you don't expect.

I am still so impressed with the author, Daniel Peyton. I finished reading his book, Bark, origins of a superhero, and I fell in love with this book. The story line is awesome and the author writes in a way that I felt the emotions that Bark, Bolt and Frost might have been feeling during the story line.
I am a big fan of the art and story line this author adds to his books. Check his books out, I think you will enjoy just how good they are and will follow his pages.
