I read very few books this year, I found myself busy and preoccupied but Daemon Parallel is one book I could not put down. A whimsical fantasy story set in the streets of Edinburgh. However this is not the usual Edinburgh but one connected to the Parallel a passageway where the human and daemon worlds collide. Only a few people can interact with both the Human and Daemon world and Cameron our protagonist discovers that ability runs in his family.
Cameron has just lost his father and has gone to live with his Grandmother Ives. His grandmother tells him about the Parallel and that he can bring his father back from the dead. But of course these things are never easy and by entering the Parallel, Cameron also enters a world of adventure, danger, and uncertainty. On the way he makes some long lasting friendships and important discoveries about himself.
I loved all the characters but probably my two favorites were Morgan a teen with a bit of a bite and Grandma Ives, a deliciously fun character. However that’s not to take away from Cameron who readers will easily identify with as he enters the Parallel into a fantastical coming of age story.
This is a book that will bring joy to readers of all ages. While I have not visited Edinburgh yet and I don’t think I will ever be lucky to enter the Parallel; these places came alive for me as I read and I felt I was transported there through the pages of the story. In the end I felt I became good friends with Cameron, Morgan, and Eve and wanted to continue with them on their journey and luckily I was able to in the wonderful sequel Werewolf Parallel.

This is a cracker. The story hooks you in from the first line and won't stop taking you to unexpected places.

A lot of elements might sound familiar — werewolves, parallel universes, daemons, and a bit of magic thrown in for good measure. Don't let that fool you. Roy Gill has a flair for visual invention, and all of his daemonic creations are dramatically unlike the tropes you get in other fantasy and horror. His surreal brush-strokes remind me a lot of Michael Ende's strange creatures in "The Neverending Story". Even though Gill borrows a little more from established mythology, he's no less inventive with his fantasy.

I don't want to spoil anything for readers who haven't had a chance to enjoy this yet, but the suspense is solid and the author understands that good guys are allowed to be a little bit bastardy in the middle of their character arc. It's really refreshing to have characters, especially YA ones, who sound and act like real people.

Before I started reading this I'd been bogged down in some fantasy garbage that couldn't bring itself to say one interesting thing, even with vampires and witches at its disposal. I've got to give kudos to "Daemon Parallel" for reminding me what good writing is. I think the writing could have used some polish in places, but a diamond is still a diamond even if it's a bit rough.

I really enjoyed this book. The villain is not what you have come to expect. The writing is whimsical and the characters are developed to almost flesh-like clarity. Besides being full of adventure and mixed mayhem, at the center of the story we have a young boy who is forced to cross from childhood to adulthood after the loss of someone close.

I was thrilled to find out there will be another book in this series.

I recommend this book to any and all people that love to read weird stories. It was very hard for me to put down. It kept me wanting to read more and more and I was sorry to come to the end. Great writter.

When it comes to middle grade and YA fantasy adventure there seem to be three aspects that can make or break a book's appeal - do we have a strong teen hero; do we have a range of interesting or engaging secondary characters; do we have a novel item, world, angle, hook, MacGuffin, premise, challenge, quest or threat to power the book forward? This book scores high marks across the board.

Our hero Cameron is solid and appealing. He still feels grief over the loss of his Dad and he is well into a teen angsty stage, but he isn't paralyzed by grief or consumed by angst. He has a decent sense of himself, a deadpan sense of humor, a practical bent, and a fairly open and receptive world view. He is, in a word, a work in process, and just ready for a fantasy adventure. We are happy to spend time with him and root for him as his adventure unfolds.

Cameron is surrounded by a varied and well imagined cast of supporting characters, some with large roles and some just appearing in little cameos. The effect is to show us an entire world, three worlds actually, that are populated by heroes, villains, and in-between sorts, who all interact differently with Cameron. That gives us a rich and full selection from which to build the story.

And it is a fine story. It is not a SPOILER to note that in addition to our world there is a Daemon World, and that there is a rift, or third place, where the two worlds overlap, (the "Edinburgh parallel"). This is the world around which our story is built, once Cameron learns of its existence and begins to explore and adventure. There is action, intrigue, mystery and challenge and Cameron addresses it all with courage and a sense of wonder that grabs us too.

I don't see how you can ask for much more than that.
