Willow “Willy” Tate is a writer/illustrator of graphic novels who worries about and is afraid of almost everything, though she makes herself forge ahead with life anyway. On a typical afternoon she is planning a new story and draws out the story board for her new idea - a hero troll. Things take a turn towards the unusual when the troll she drew for her story comes walking down the street outside her Manhattan apartment, only no one but Willy can see him. Soon she finds herself back in her childhood home of Paumanok Harbor deeply involved in all sorts of paranormal adventures as she meets a dashing British agent from a mysterious agency, the Department of Unexplained Events or DUE, becomes involved in the search for a stolen child from another world and finds out the people of her hometown are much more than they seem.

This was a delightful start to the series. The characters are both believable and wonderfully eccentric. I could not put it down until I had finished. Luckily I had the rest of the series to hand and whipped through it in a week. Highly recommended. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
