The Wild Beasts of Anthony Mannis
In the nation of Atos, where technology and the unexplainable co-exist, a boy with the ability to imagine monsters into reality revolts against the police state in order to rescue his abducted family. More
At what age do we stop believing in monsters?
Anthony Mannis is one of a handful of "invokers" - lucky children that can turn their imagination into a living reality; their abilities "arcing down" as they become young adults. When his hometown is raided by the police state and his family abducted, he strikes off on an adventure involving dueling monsters, fanatic policemen, a pyromaniac jester, and loyal friends.
If you're the kind of person who, when the world says, "Grow up," you say, "No way," then this book is for you - laugh in the face of danger with our irrepressible, rowdy, and ultimately rebellious teenage heroes.
“THE WILD BEASTS OF ANTHONY MANNIS by Matthew Young is a great story for those who enjoy fantasy and science fiction. Both younger readers and adults alike can find much to love about this story.The characters are alive, relatable, and heroic...The author creates a frightening world, but the overarching message is that we can do anything if we try, especially when the cause is noble and right. I think this would be a good book for adults and younger readers to share together, and to talk to each other about. Nice work…Matthew Young is a talented author and I hope he will continue to write many books for years to come!”
