Silver Medal Award Winner- 2019 Readers' Favorite Awards "Where Dragonwoofs Sleep and the Fading Creeps is exactly the kind of sleeper fantasy that the target audience and the larger adult audience may be inclined to overlook, and there are infinitely many reasons why fantasy lovers and even those, like myself, who are somewhat jaded by fantasy at this point, should pay attention and start reading. [...] Where Dragonwoofs Sleep and the Fading Creeps is one of the finer works of epic fantasy I've come across in some time, and it's most highly recommended."

Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

"With a touch of Alice in Wonderland whimsy, but the dark elements of The Neverending Story, this novel is both heartwarming and gripping. Unlike so many other books for this age range, the author doesn't pander to his audience, but challenges young readers with complex characters who are relatable, yet still admirable. The creativity on display in these pages is remarkable, and will certainly hold the attention of teenage readers, and perhaps even hold an appeal for a slightly older audience. Massey delivers a powerful and entertaining story with his debut work of fantasy."

Self Publishing Review

"Where Dragonwoofs Sleep and the Fading Creeps will captivate young audiences with its unique blend of contemporary thrills and fantasy adventure."

Foreword Clarion Reviews

"This novel is the enchanting offspring of The Neverending Story and Alice in Wonderland. [...] A charming read with a satisfying plot twist and heartwarming conclusion."

The BookLife Prize by Publishers Weekly

"Young adult readers take a foray into surrealism in this timely fantasy novel that alternates between middle school reality and an imaginary land to comment on contemporary themes and explore a common teen problem."

BlueInk Review

"Where Dragonwoofs Sleep and the Fading Creeps" showcases author A. J. Massey as a master of the genre and a novelist with a genuine flair for originality and narrative driven storytelling."

Midwest Book Review

“While Where Dragonwoofs Sleep and the Fading Creeps is an excellent choice for fantasy leisure readers, it also holds enough literary humor and wordplay to ideally attract educators interested in exploring themes of language and humor, and who look for contemporary reads beyond Alice in Wonderland for such examples."

Donovan's Bookshelf

"A marvelous book."

Gary Shapiro, Host: From The Bookshelf - KSCO-FM

"A tireless and tremendously creative adventure, Fever Dreams and the End of All Things by A.J. Massey is a strong sequel in a deeply fascinating realm."

Self-Publishing Review

"This is not a book for small children, and it does not talk down to its audience or treat its young adult characters and readers as innocents to be pandered to, but as intelligent, thoughtful people in the throes of one of the most difficult times of their lives."

Catherine Langrehr for IndieReader

"Massey excels at creating vivid scenarios, demanding circumstances, and unexpected twists and turns that challenge young heroes to engage in the biggest battle of their lives."

D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer for Midwest Book Review

Gold Medal Winner - General Fantasy - 2022 Readers; Favorite Awards "Settle into a comfortable reading chair, relish the author's role as Dungeon Master and storyteller, and get involved in an intense and compelling adventure/fantasy tale."

Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

"A riveting fantasy sequel that skillfully expands the boundaries of its predecessor."

Kirkus Reviews

Perfect 10/10 and Quarter-Finalist for the 2022 BookLife Prize by Publishers Weekly "A compelling, original and spectacularly well-written fantasy coming-of-age/adventure story that will entice YA and adult readers into the dream world of Meridia and the all-too-real world of junior high school."

BookLife Prize by Publishers Weekly

IndieReader Approved "The elements of Meridia are breathtakingly original and impressively cohesive, all while still managing to fondly bring to mind the fantasy works of Jim Henson and Hayao Miyazaki. [...] Hints of beloved fantasy throwbacks and tons of excitingly one-of-a-kind ideas coalesce into an impressive, unmissable fantasy adventure in WHERE DRAGONWOOFS SLEEP AND THE FADING CREEPS."

Valerie Ettenhofer for IndieReader

ABOUT US

Enter a Dream World Inspired by 80s Dark Fantasy

A.J. Massey writes thrilling, award-winning fantasy novels for young teens and adults. “I created this story to convey the mystery, awe, and wonderment I felt while consuming fantasy as a child and teen. Although I was heavily inspired by books like Alice in Wonderland and The Chronicles of Narnia, my biggest influences growing up were films like The Neverending Story, Labyrinth, and The Goonies. I always believed there was a particular flavor of darkness and whimsy found in 80s fantasy that has never been replicated since. My intent was to capture these elements in Where Dragonwoofs Sleep and the Fading Creeps and Fever Dreams and the End of All Things.”
