Publisher Description: Orphan, product of the foster care system, Welfy is a homeless runaway struggling to survive, uncertainly navigating the streets of New York City with his only friend Harlan Mills. Soon after he finds work at Gramercy Deli, he stumbles into an alternate universe where he’s believed to be “The One in a dirty apron” prophesied to lead the Brundeedle race out of Woe Time.
Review: I like the cover art.
Welfy is an orphan whom seemingly stumbles upon a gateway into another universe. There he meets a group of rebel freedom fighters that think he is the answer to a long foretold prophecy. What follows is a fairly robust novel involving his friend and his newfound allies in their fight against the Ceparids. The story line is fun and the plot, uncomplicated. The characters are fairly straight forward and the movement is constant.
The is an engaging novel, built for the young at heart. Anyone at any age can enjoy this lighthearted romp through the multi-verse. I look forward to any subsequent novels in the Welfy multi-verse.
