"Tristan: Child of the Otherworld" by Michael Moniz {Book Review}


The green eyes betray the child. All who see him know what he is and it fills them with dread. What power dwells within this frail form that so terrifies even the most vicious of creatures?

Tristan is a shy and introverted boy. Raised by his Grandfather, he lives a simple and sheltered life, until the day a large, scarred stranger arrives with news that brings Tristan’s Grandfather to tears. The two escape their tranquil village for the sea, where rising up out of the water, hidden by mists and storms, an island appears.

To his horror, Tristan must leave his grandfather who is unable to set foot on the island. With the strange brute as his guide, Tristan embarks on an adventure filled with magic and destruction.

Is he a savior, or victim in this strange land? Despite the uncertainties of Tristan’s future, from now on, he will forever be a child of the otherworld.

About the Author, Michael Moniz:

Born in Toronto, Ontario, Michael Moniz spent his childhood living between the big city and the tranquil Azores islands of Portugal.

It is this unique upbringing and an early appreciation for culture and the arts that inspired Michael at young age. His skill in watercolours, oils and sketches garnered accolades from the local Portuguese community, leading him from small-scale works to commissioned wall-sized murals.

Michael’s eclectic background, combined with a love of ancient culture, prompted him to explore a new creative outlet in storytelling. His children’s tales are full of wonder and whimsy, as well as deep meaning and morals.

When Michael is not painting and writing, he stays true to his creative side working as an art director with a Toronto-based advertising firm. He currently lives in the Toronto area with his wonderful family who provide endless encouragement and inspiration.
