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.
