Damien and Matthew are adventurers and risk-takers, although Peter, the eldest, is the natural leader of their group. They look to him for guidance in all matters, and he's always looking to prove his worth by setting and taking on 'dares'. 'The Bloodsucker' is a childhood myth the boys don't quite believe but dare not ignore. It is a toad that squats near their den - a dilapidated hen hut - that Peter claims is able to suck their blood. Mr Hogg is another challenge. He dislikes mischievous boys and they fear him nearly as much as they fear the toad. The boys try to avoid his harassing and bullying as much as possible. Whilst Peter is in charge, the others have their moments. Matthew, for example, instigates a treasure hunt - little is he aware of the consequences that will evolve. Suddenly, when the boys find themselves in a difficult situation - not made any easier by Peter - they are forced to turn to their adversary, Mr Hogg, to help them. Even as the situation seems hopeless, can Peter prove himself as the leader?

    I did have an audiobook made of my novel with mixed resultsРmostly because of a few Korean words in the text. I had spent hours searching for narrators who had some exposure to Korean. At that time (I don't know about now), ACX definitely lacked narrators familiar with Asian languages. Other than that, ACX made the process very easy, and I would use them again in future novels as long as there was no difficulty with foreign words.

    That right there is your problem: readers of The New Republic couldn't be bothered to claim a coupon Р it isn't worth the effort.

      I downloaded the book. Then I went out and bought a copy. I *STILL* like physical books, and the chance to support my indie bookstore.
