“VODNIK is compelling, interesting and darkly humorous. I think you’ll love it.”

Brandon Sanderson, NY Times bestselling author of the Mistborn trilogy

“A first encounter with racism blends well with a compelling fantasy adventure […] a shy boy blossoms in this suprisingly witty debut.”


“Bryce Moore has done something most authors can’t do; he has created a story with a completely different type of mythology […] The author has created a great new type of mystery and legend, and I’m one reader who can’t wait to see if this story continues to develop.”

School Library Journal

“What’s really cool about VODNIK is the fact that it’s a cross between urban fantasy and Slovakian folk- and fairy tales and it works really really well […] This is a great YA book and a good one for adults as well.”

Best Fantasy Books

“The world needs more books like VODNIK, and I for one am glad that people like Bryce keep popping up. I highly recommend this book, and pray to the book gods that there are more to come. Here’s to a great entry in Urban Fantasy!”

Beyond Dragons and Wizards

“Readers looking for a unique twist on paranormal, or who have interest in Eastern Europe or mythology, will definitely be satisfied with VODNIK.”

The Memory Thief
“Moore crafts a compelling premise and a plot that delivers more than might be expected […] With interesting twists, captivating action, and a down-to-earth lead, this adventure is sure to become a new favorite.”


“With a fast pace, a clever premise, a likable main character and just enough danger to keep readers reading The Memory Thief is a must read.”

Middle Grade Mafia

“A fun adventure that readers of all ages will enjoy, The Memory Thief was an action-packed story about a boy trying to save his family and the rest of his town, whilst trying to adjust to his newfound skills in memory navigating. While this worked well as a standalone I’m secretly (well, not so secretly now!) hoping that there will be a sequel, or even a series. Don’t miss out on this one!”

Confessions of a Readaholic

“I challenge you to not devour it in one sitting, because I am almost certain you will! […] I can definitely see fans of J.K. Rowling and Tim Burton gobbling up this tale.”

The Crazy Bookworm

“Middle grade readers will love this fast-paced tale and, as I did, enjoy thinking about the complications of erasing knowledge and experience from the minds of others.”
