Myth 8

Constructing Marcus by Danielle DeVor

Maer’s Review

Large Base Consstructing Marcus Working copy

I was pleased to read Constructing Marcus as part of Daneille DeVor’s Book Tour. And what a fun read this was! From the first pages I was hooked into sixteen-year-old Emma’s life. With her penchant for ghost hunting, dealing with a mother’s illness and a move to a new city and home, our young heroine grabs you up and takes you on her journey of exploration and discovery. This isn’t just a paranormal novel where Emma sleuths to track down the secret of the house and its unusual resident, but it’s also a coming of age novel. Emma discovers depths of her own in this intriguing book.

DeVor has captured the essence of a teen dealing with the paranormal shes always wanted to find. The pace is fast, the characters interesting and story engaging. DeVor’s writing is crisp and the first person narrative works perfectly to draw in the reader. Descriptions are just the right amount for a Young Adult novel, and give an outline that allows the reader to fill in the rest with their own imagination.

Sweet without becoming saccharine, Constructing Marcus is a perfect read for a Sunday afternoon.

About Lindsey R. Loucks

Lindsey R. Loucks works as a school librarian in rural Kansas. When she’s not discussing books with anyone who will listen, she’s dreaming up her own stories. Eventually her brain gives out, and she’ll play hide and seek with her cat, put herself in a chocolate induced coma, or watch scary movies alone in the dark to reenergize.

She’s been with her significant other for almost two decades.

Today’s guest is the fabulous Constance Phillips. A gifted author, her novel Resurrecting Harry, was a real treat when I read it earlier this year. The story, characters and writing were all captivating and a fun and different read.

About Constance Phillips

Constance Phillips lives in Ohio with her husband, two ready-to-leave-the-nest children, and four canine kids. Her perfect fantasy vacation would involve hunting Dracula across Europe with her daughter, who also digs that kind of stuff. When she’s not writing about fairies, shifters, vamps, and guardian angels, she’s working side-by-side with her husband in their hardwood flooring business.

Constance is actively involved in her local Romance Writers of America chapter (MVRWA) and the Southeast Michigan chapter of the United States Pony Club. When not writing or enjoying the outdoors, she loves reality television or can be found at a Rick Springfield concert (just look for the pink Converse high tops).
