Phantasy Night Zoo series (fantasy, graphic novel)
Midnight at the Gate: Phantasy Night Zoo, Vol. 1
Marc Austen knows the legends of the Maye Botanical Garden’s “Night Zoo” like the back of his hand. According to his best friend’s grandfather, the Garden is a literal gateway to living dreams, sentient nightmares and incredible adventure. He loved that stuff when he was a kid, but that’s all it is: kid stuff.
Whether he believes or not, the truth that awaits beyond the Garden’s iron gates will challenge Marc’s perception of friendship, reality and the invisible. “…If you manage to visit that magical realm, the zookeeper will welcome you. Heed his words, mind the owls, don’t talk to the lampposts and you may survive the greatest adventure of your life.
