Genre: Teen/ Fantasy Adventure
AUTHOR: BOYD THOMAS LONDON
Joe Blake is a typical teenage American. He plays football, loves his family and is active in his community until a drunk driver changes all of that. As Joe's family sits an anxious vigil by his hospital bedside, Joe is tossed into a dreamlike state in a world of strange creatures, robots, purple and red vegetation and monsters. In this dream state, Joe must make his way through the seemingly never- ending dangers to Princess Joni's castle and the portal. If he doesn't make it in time, he will remain in the land of the Dream Wanderer.
This book will have great appeal to young people. It reads like a video game, action packed, exciting and a constant battle of hero versus evil. The plot is fast paced and holds the readers attention. Vivid descriptions of the scenery place the reader firmly in the land of the Dream Wanderer. The characters are colorful and unusual. The author uses simple sentence structure and vocabulary, making it an easy read for most youngsters.
Creeton teen sci-fi novel, the first by author Boyd Thomas London, promoted world peace and unity. This second novel demonstrates the pain and agony an innocent victim and his family face as a result of a DUI accident. It is his hope that these two novels will make their way into the Accelerated Reading Program in high schools. Allbooks Reviews is a great supporter of all programs that encourage reading and literacy in our schools. We wish him much success with this venture and would like to add our personal endorsement. Highly recommended for the young people in your life. Reviewer: Shirley Roe

Creeton (Book) - 3/11/2004 4:01:59 PM
Fast paced space adventure, February 23, 2004
Reviewer: allbookreviews from Canada
John Brown and Dave Miller, two typical adventure seeking young men, find themselves in the adventure of a lifetime. Not only do they discover an alien ship but also take a journey to the planet of its origin, Creeton. Planet Creeton resembles Earth but is being attacked by the evil Warlids, who hope to conquer the universe. Can the people of planet Creeton and planet Earth, work together peacefully and effectively without prejudice or war? Will our heroes from Earth be able to help the people of Creeton to defeat the evil Warlids and save their planet? Will Universal peace prevail?
It is the undying friendship of the two young men that gives strength and depth to the characters. Both John and Dave are willing to die for each other, an unbreakable bond. The plot is fast paced and exciting. Shorter book length with large print is designed for young readers looking for a quick but interesting read. This is an excellent adventure for young teens, probably directed more to boys than girls but well written, family entertainment.
Author, Boyd Thomas London uses his experience as Munitions Systems Specialist in the Air Force to bring the fight scenes to life in his first novel. Imagery strikingly similar to today's video games will help the young reader instantly identify with the space battles. This book has been written in the aftermath of 9/11 and contains an acknowledgement to those who died in the horrible tragedy. Look for more adventures from this young up and coming author.
