Randy Brileyabout this book: Mr. Underneath is the story of fear and our heart's ability to face it no matter how overwhelming it may seem. It's a story about the strength of love to shine light into the darkest of places. This imaginative tale unfolds in a fantastic forest setting where magical creatures and ancient evils coexist.
Jackson McCabe is a 12 year old boy that gets pulled into the mysteries of the dark woods around his family's new farm. An ancient evil has returned and the animals and wondrous creatures in the forest are helpless to stop it. Jackson follows a coal black squirrel into the forest and joins forces with a shape shifting crow as he learns that the entire town of Blankcastle, England has gone missing, including his parents.
He learns that the ultimate evil, Mr. Underneath, is behind this treachery. With the help of earth witches, back-stabbing fairies, rusted steam powered sentinels, and a fearless and beautiful girl he must face this evil and save everything he loves.
This imaginative wonderland was written by artist and author Randy Briley for all readers of dark fiction fantasy, from tweens to adults.
Mr. Underneath is available on Kindle (Amazon has a free app if you don't have a Kindle that allows you to read on your PC, iPhone, Android, etc.). See also Briley's book of whimsical doodles, Sketchboy, available on Kindle and iTunes.

Other book by Randy Briley
An Imaginary World Come to LifeI was so quickly drawn into the dark imaginative world of Mr. Underneath that I did not want to put the book down. There were even times while I was reading the book that had me looking over my shoulder and turning on my bedside light because I felt like I was actually running through the dark forest and meeting unknown magical and evil creatures. Mr. Underneath is the type of book that you think about even when you are not reading it. I was always wondering what new creatures Jackson, the main character, would come across and how he would escape from them or interact with them. I would highly recommend this creative and adventurous book. My 12 year old daughter loved it also, and now my 9 year old son wants to read it.
