A New Urban Fantasy Series for Adults, Teens, and Fans of YA Fantasy Novels "Paul Reid died in the snow at seventeen. The day of his death, he told a lie—and for the rest of his life, he wondered if that was what killed him." And so begins the battle for the afterlife, known as The Commons. It's been taken over by a corporate raider who uses the energy of its souls to maintain his brutal control. The result is an imaginary landscape of a broken America—stuck in time and overrun by the heroes, monsters, dreams, and nightmares of the imprisoned dead. Three people board a bus to nowhere: a New York street kid, an Iraq War veteran, and her five-year-old special-needs son. After a horrific accident, they are the last, best hope for The Commons to free itself. Along for the ride are a shotgun-toting goth girl, a six-foot-six mummy, a mute Shaolin monk with anger-management issues, and the only guide left to lead them. Three Journeys: separate but joined. One mission: to save forever. But first they have to save themselves. ˃˃˃ "[A] brilliant piece of fiction...that is destined to blow up" — Bronsen Earl, Amazon reviewer ˃˃˃ "[U]niquely crafted...simply a marvelously well-written make-believe story..." — Grady Harp, Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer ˃˃˃ "[A] near perfect blend of the strange and unexpected." — Ray Nicholson, Amazon Top 1000 reviewer ˃˃˃ "I'm a huge fan of the genre and Mr. Peck manages to bring something fresh and engrossing to the table." — violet13 A Magical Realism Novel with Elements of Mythical and Metaphysical Fantasy ˃˃˃ "Books with this mix of metaphysics, fantasy and magical realism are becoming more prevalent...but few of these books are as well executed as this one." — Tahlia Newland, Awesome Indies Reviewer

Exciting, fast paced story I think is the best way to describe the first book in the Commons series. I enjoyed it because it kept me thinking, what happens to the character, will they make it. I was even shouting warnings at the book, totally scaring my poor cat! The story follows three strangers w...
