COVER REVEAL- DEL TORO MOON

Today I'm delighted to share the cover of DEL TORO MOON, the forthcoming middle grade fantasy novel by dear friend and award-winning author Darby Karchut. Take a look at this.



This cover is gorgeous. Love the horse.



Back jacket copy – DEL TORO MOON by Darby Karchut


Bad enough Matt Del Toro is the greenest greenhorn in the family’s centuries-old business: riding down and destroying wolf-like creatures, known as skinners. He must also learn how to match his father’s skills at monster hunting. Odds of doing that? Yeah, about a million to one. Because Matt’s father is the legendary Javier Del Toro—hunter, scholar, and a true caballero: a gentleman of the horse.

Now, with the skinners multiplying, both in numbers and ferocity, Matt is desperate to keep his father and hot-tempered older brother from killing each other, prevent his new friend, Perry—a horse-crazy girl who recently moved to their small town of Huerfano, Colorado—from discovering the true nature of his odder-than-oddball family, and save a group of paleontologists from getting skinner-ed.

Luckily, Matt has twelve hundred pounds of backup in his best friend—El Cid, an Andalusian war stallion with the ability of human speech, more fighting savvy than a medieval knight, and a heart as big and steadfast as the Rocky Mountains.

Serious horse power.

Those skinners don’t stand a chance.

  4. Having to live up to a parent's expertise in monster hunting must come with a lot of pressure. I'm sure those are tough shoes to fill. Thanks for sharing about the book!

  5. I read this book back when I was an acquisitions editor. I wanted to acquire it but Darby found an agent and her path to publication changed from there. It's a fantastic book, and I wish her the best of luck with it.
