“Vega writes well beyond his years…With his third literary attempt, Vega has hit his stride—one that can only pick up speed.” —The Record-Journal “Vega is definitely a talented writer with a white-hot literary future.” —The Middletown Press “Arson is not to be missed. It is densely layered, tense, packed with surprising compassion, and written with great courage…Groundbreaking!” —Salt Lake City Examiner “In a fortunate writer’s career, there is one book that inevitably launches its author to a new level of success and visibility, and Arson may very well prove to be just such a book for Estevan Vega.” —Hartford Examiner “Estevan Vega’s Arson proves he is an author to be reckoned with.” —The Christian Manifesto “[Arson] could be compared to other young adult books such as Jumper or even a young coming of age super-hero genre story. And even at times flecks of the Twilight series.” —Title Trakk “It’s a testament to his talent that Estevan Vega can turn a dark, disturbing story into an intriguing page-turner. Quirky, complex characters and Vega’s storytelling skills make Arson a must-read…and Vega an author to watch.” —Robert Liparulo, bestselling author of Deadlock and The Dreamhouse Kings "Arson is every bit its namesake: a sinister story that slowly licks at the edges of your subconscious until it fully engulfs you in a firestorm of fascinating characters, twisting plotlines, and an explosive ending. A great read and Estevan Vega is a talent to watch for sure!" — Jon F. Merz, bestselling author of The Kensei “In Arson, Estevan Vega has created a character as unique and captivating as Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas. With a fresh voice and an engaging style, Vega's storytelling is something to pay attention to.” —Mike Dellosso, author of Darlington Woods and Darkness Follows “…[A] gifted young writer, and I expect to see great works from him in the near future. —Bryan Davis, bestselling author of the Echoes from the Edge and Dragons in our Midst series “Wonderfully envisioned and readable. The story of a young man with a secret talent he doesn't want to be forced to use keeps readers edgy and waiting, and hoping he'll let it all out.” —John Neufeld, author of Edgar Allan and April Fool.” Arson Gable feels like a freak. He can create fire. He never asked for it. He never wanted it. But he can't shut it off. Before now, three things were true: he both loved and despised his grandmother; his life was going nowhere; and he was alone. But when a strange girl--who feels more normal behind a mask than inside her own skin--moves in next door, Arson hopes to find something he's never had: purpose. Using what he fears most about himself, Arson must face his consuming past and confront the nightmare that is his present as he walks the fine line between boy and monster. Dark, moody, and breathtakingly relevant, Arson, the chilling chronicle of an isolated boy with unimaginable ability, is sure to ignite the hearts and minds of a new generation.
