The Takers; Book One of the Oz....

R.W. Ridley

A 13-year-old boy wakes up to discover he is responsible for the end of the world.


Never say their name! If you do, they will find you! If they find you, they will eat you! Thirteen-year-old Oz Griffin knows it's his fault that the Takers are eating everyone in sight. He also knows that a comic book written by a neighborhood boy is the key to defeating them. But every time he and his band of survivors try to read the comic book, the Takers draw closer. Can they get to the end of the story before the Takers devour them?

The opening imagery of the mother as a vanishing shadow is particularly ... view book
