I am a fan of Paul Cooley's works in general. I've read everything that he has written. The Garaaga novels are my favorite among his works. This is no parallel universe monster tale. Garaaga has always lived among us and we don't know it until it's too late. Cooley took greeat care to make these tale fit perfectly into their historical context.
You are taken into a strange world and soon become allied with the Garaaga's monstrous children.They live twisted lives ultimately controlled by their malevolent god. They strive to have some kind of life and maybe just maybe break free.
"Daemons of Garaaga" is the latest in series. read one read them all. Then look around you and start to get nervous. Is this really fiction. MAYBE NOT.
