At 31, Garrett Willigins has finally earned his private investigator's badge. Unfortunately the bills haven't stopped coming and building a solid reputation won't happen overnight. Forced to take employment wherever they can, Garrett and his miniature dragon partner, Merle, must dirty their hands any way possible to make a buck. Shoveling manure, chasing cats, and dock duty seem to be the order of the day.
Working off back rent for a notorious gangster isn't the safest of jobs on a good day, but when the other dock workers begin disappearing, Garrett finds himself elbow deep in a mystery that might spell a quick end to his short P.I. career.

There is something brewing in Deep Cove, and there’s no better heroes to figure it out than the private investigator Garrett, a dragon named Merle, and their robotic friend. This book is a delightful surprise that seriously injects some fun and humor into the fantasy genre, and Welcome to Deep Cove has enough action, suspense, and laughs that it could satisfy even the most discerning reader. First of all, the author’s descriptions are incredible. They really suck you into the world of Deep Cove, and little of it seems to be there without reason. Most of the description piggybacks into character development or exposition that actually furthers the story, and that which doesn’t illuminates the scenery in a veil of imagination that is living, breathing, and undeniably realistic despite the fantastic subject matter. The characters in this story are memorable. I especially loved the dragon, Merle. His laugh-out-loud antics and dubious wit combined with snark makes him lovable in addition to providing comic relief to the story. My favorite aspect of Grant Reed’s setting has to be the way that he effortlessly combines the fantastic with modern day ideas and subject matter. Dragons, kings, robots, and crime families can all be found in Deep Cove, and they are unabashedly interconnected in a world that has been brought to life by excellent diction. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy novels, especially the young adult demographic. However, I’d also lend this book to friends who like lighthearted adventure stories, and more. There’s something in this book for everyone.
