Mooi 1. Amsterdam Tales

   (4 reviews)
Genres: Fantasy, Romance

Coby had lost direction in life after the death of his parents, and had reached a point where he couldn't go on. But then he met someone new - someone extraordinary. Someone not even human.
The first in a series of supernatural tales set in Amsterdam, involving myths and legends of that ancient city.

Please note: This story contains thoughts and unfulfilled acts by a character contemplating suicide, which may be troubling for some readers.

Amsterdam is a beautiful and vibrant city full of life.  It is much more that just a good setting for this story.  Coby's mourning and feelings of guilt with the deaths of his parents leads him to dark thoughts.  His fall gives rise to a new love in this supernaturally great tale.  This story of love and hope is the beginning of a wonderful series of stories I know you will love.

Response from the author:

I'm happy that you can see some of the same beauty of this city as I can! :)

This was a very touching story with a unique twist. There is some pain and drama surrounding the main character, Coby, due to the accidental death of his parents. Coby unreasonably blames himself for their deaths and so is mired in some deep depression. He seeks solace at a local dance club, but only as an observer, rather than a participant. While at the club he becomes fascinated by one particular boy that seems close to his same age and whom Coby finds very attractive. Eventually the two meet and Coby discovers that all is not as it first seems with this boy. 

The twist part of the story is what I found so creative and fascinating. I can't say for sure that Geron is the only author to have written about such an idea, but I can say for certain that I've never read any other story with this kind of a twist before. I'm not getting into details here because I don't want to put a spoiler in a review. Suffice to say that it's a very unique twist to a story and a very satisfying one. 

I see that there are two other sequel stories to this one and I can't wait to get started on them! 

Response from the author:

A bit  of old home week here. There is a legend back in that old city, that it is alive.

I always felt it was. :)

Thank you!

A one chapter story I found today. It is a good mix of reality and fantasy. The writing is thoughtful and thought-provoking. The longing of a young man's heart comes through as he copes with his future and past.
