If I can write a novel, then you surely can! I've been writing since 2007. I’ve also been a stay-home dad since 2007. Hmm—coincidence? My primary genre of preference for writing (though, what exactly is a genre anymore) is YA/ MG fiction, but ultimately I go wherever the story takes me, whether short story, flash fiction, or adult fiction. And when I say YA, I mean more like Rick Riordan, not Sarah Dessen. My alias is J. Paul Wallace. I am a prime example of someone who can write, minus all the education and acronyms at the end of my name.

This was a great quick read. It reminded me a little of the Percy Jackson Series. While the boys are clearly human, all of their interactions with the Greek Gods provide for quite an entertaining read.
Jason Dee’s like was forever changed when a horrific storm filled with lightning struck his family’s car, instantly killing his father, and resulting in Jason’s arm being amputated, while his Great-Grandfather survived despite all odds. Jason’s dreams of being an Olympic swimmer are forever gone, and 2 years later he’s still struggling to find his place.
After the death of his Great-Grandfather he learns that’s he’s now part of a group called the Altors that fight evil and mystical creatures. He is now living in his Great-Grandfather’s house with his Grandpa; that is filled with surprises, and mystical tools. He quickly finds another Altor and forms a close friendship while trying to fulfill their quest. I knew from the beginning who the 3rd Jason was, and am looking forward to seeing what he contributes to the group. It occurred to me, that the YA-Young Amputees group also stands for Young Altors, interesting….
This was a quick read, but kept me captivated. While it’s geared towards YA, as an adult I still enjoyed it. I’m interested in finding out what happens next.

Enjoyed this book immensely! With a hint of Indiana Jones meets Narnia meets Greek Mythology, this book is full of adventure and intrigue at every chapter. J.P. Kurzitza's imagination and writing talent keeps you wondering what is coming next around the bend, and his vivid description excellently paints an exciting fictitious world in one's mind. Excellently written for a first novel and a unique and imaginative idea for a book series. I look forward to reading more J.A.S.O.N.D novels. "Thumbs up" to J.A.S.O.N.D. July!!
