New Book The Munchkins by Debut Author Candice Zee Introduces 13 Children With Mysterious Powers

By: PRLog

CLEVELAND - Dec. 2, 2021 - PRLog -- The new upper middle-grade fantasy book The Munchkins by Cleveland-based author Candice Zee was released in paperback and ebook on October 12. This story about thirteen siblings with mysterious powers and their malevolent neighbor is already receiving five-star reviews:

"Told in a fast-paced narrative voice with complex characters, the exhilarating fantasy will keep readers guessing until the very end—all while falling in love with the quirky cast. The book deserved to be made into a movie or a web series." - The Prairies Book Review

"A Harry Potter-type fantasy that will keep young readers enraptured from beginning to end." - Emily-Jane Hills Orford, Readers' Favorite

"If you enjoy stories like The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket, then you will love Candice Zee's book The Munchkins…I was on the edge of my seat as the plot became more and more terrifying."
- Kristine Zimmerman, Readers' Favorite

"Its action-packed story is more firmly rooted in family and interpersonal connections than most and creates a satisfying adventure as siblings fight to preserve their family. Collections strong in stories of magic and family evolution will find The Munchkins a fine addition." - D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

In the book, Capricorn Munch and her twelve siblings suddenly appear outside a children's home. At ten years old they stop aging, and she and her siblings develop powers that give them incredible abilities, like healing wounds and manifesting objects. They strive to live a normal life, hiding their powers, until a sociopathic neighbor moves in next door. As the dangerous neighbor encourages them to be reckless with their powers, the siblings realize he's up to something more sinister and they need to find out what—before it's too late. The book is the first in a series and is available nationally and internationally through brick-and-mortar stores and online retailers.

Candice Zee is a middle-grade and young adult (YA) fantasy writer who first dreamed the idea of The Munchkins as a child while playing make-believe with her brother in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The two siblings would make up Munchkins stories, act them out, and imagine them into being. She is an early childhood teacher and now lives with her wife and dog in Cleveland, Ohio. This is her debut book.
