Several of Daniel's novels have hit Amazon's overall Top 100 bestsellers list; one has hit the Top 20. In total, his books have sold over 300,000 copies.

Raised on Dungeons & Dragons, Lord of the Rings, and scratchy Star Wars VHS tapes, Daniel still consumes--and tries to contribute to--geek culture. He lives in Canada with his wife and pet birds.

** spoiler alert ** If you're looking for serious high fantasy, this is NOT the book for you. If you want some light, fluffy, fantasy brain candy, this book might be right up your alley.

It's not a perfect book, but I enjoyed it. You've got your ragtag band of misfits (Sam, the wannabe knight who can't use a sword; Jamie, his sister, also a wannabe knight who is awesome with the sword but not allowed to be a knight due to being a girl; Neev, their brother, a wannabe warlock who sprouts animal parts any...moreIf you're looking for serious high fantasy, this is NOT the book for you.

It's not a perfect book, but I enjoyed it. You've got your ragtag band of misfits (Sam, the wannabe knight who can't use a sword; Jamie, his sister, also a wannabe knight who is awesome with the sword but not allowed to be a knight due to being a girl; Neev, their brother, a wannabe warlock who sprouts animal parts any time he performs a spell; Romy, the cutesy, childish demon girl he summoned; and Cobweb, the beautiful, ethereal spiderling who can't help but speak with a lisp). You've got your evil-warlock-living-skeleton bad guy, Dry Bones. You've got a quest to avenge the death of Sam, Jamie, and Neev's parents. You've got lots of monster fights. And that pretty much sums it up.

It's really a rather silly kind of story, but it's big on heart and amusement, and I found myself liking even the annoying characters. There was no question about whether or not the good guys would triumph over evil, because this isn't that kind of story. It's just a fun, quick read with some humor thrown in for good measure.
