Beastlands from Curtis Clow
Curtis Clow was inspired personally by his dog companion for the story with Beastlands. From that relationship, he developed a fantastical world that can be described as a cross between Pokémon, Digimon, and Game of Thrones.
Beastlands is an action-adventure story set in a beautiful medieval fantasy world where people have companion beasts known as “Keepers.” It takes the reader on an adventure with a group of 3 teenage friends, Mac, Ava, and Ping. They’re on a journey to discover what Mac’s father, an explorer, was trying to discover before he disappeared. On this quest, their friends will be tested, all while a tyrannical King looks to outlaw Keepers from the land.
