Book details:
Looking for Dei
by David A. Willson
Publication date: March 23rd 2018
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Fifteen-year-old Nara Dall has never liked secrets. Yet it seems that her life has been filled with them, from the ugly scar on her back to the strange powers she possesses. Her mysterious father refuses to say anything about her origins, and soon, she and her best friend must attend the announcement ceremony, in which youths are tested for a magical gift.

A gifted youth has not been announced in the poor village of Dimmitt for decades. When Nara uncovers the reason, she uses her own powers to make things right. The decision sets her on a path of danger, discovery, and a search for the divine. In the process, she learns the truth about herself and uncovers the biggest secret of all: the power of broken people.

David A. Willson has worked as a restauranteur, peace officer, and now, author. Taught by his mother to read at a young age, he spent his childhood exploring magic, spaceships, and other dimensions. In his writing, he strives to bring those worlds to his readers.

Much of his material is inspired by the “Great Land” of Alaska, which he has called home for over 30 years. He lives there with his wife, five children, and 2 dogs. He is passionate about technology, faith, and fiction—not necessarily in that order.

Looking for Dei is Willson’s debut novel, set in a land where many more adventures will take place. Stay up to date with his ongoing efforts through the Looking for Dei Facebook page or visiting the website at

REVIEW: Looking for Dei is a YA Fantasy that involves magical gifts and what the consequences are, should things get out of hand. In Nara’s village, gifted youths is a thing of the past. But the mystery surrounds the area, as to why this has become the case. Nara decides that the right thing to do, is use her powers to uncover the mystery. But once events start happening, is her ideas suddenly out of control? It is a visual read, that was action-packed in every chapter. The novel’s strengths for me were the world-building and descriptions of the gifts that the various young people were discovered to have. The last couple of chapters as Nara is about to actively confront a scary nightmare, made the plotline extremely thrilling. I’m intrigued to see where the story goes next, after that cliffhanger! Recommended for those who like their fantasy with lots of magic, action and fast-paced dialogue!
