Wayne Gerard Trotmanabout this book: Kaya Abaniah and the Father of the Forest is a thrilling, coming of age, young adult, science fiction novel. It was recently featured in 'Supernatural Literature' a definitive 3-volume encyclopedia that covers the literature of the supernatural across the canon, including such works as Shakespeare's Hamlet, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones and The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien.
Kaya Abaniah is 14-years-old and in love for the first time. He lives with his mother on the island of Trinidad in the Caribbean and attends Paria College, one of the island's most prestigious secondary schools. Kaya is a member of Ocelot House, a keen sprinter and a talented painter. He is deeply interested in conservation and the environment but has to deal with condescending rich kids and school bullies.
Kaya believes he is just a normal teenager; however, he is wrong. After an encounter with Papa Bois, the terrifying father of the forest, Kaya's latent superpowers are awakened. He discovers that alien beings live among the humans of Earth and 'men in black' become a constant threat. To protect those he loves, he must face these mysterious visitors, as well as monstrous characters such as Soucouyant – a shape-shifting vampire who roams the skies in the form of a fireball, and Mama Dlo – a half woman, half snake hybrid.
• "Only Wayne Trotman can take you back to those good old school days, a teenage crush, lure you into a conservationist dream through the wonderful tropical forest of a Caribbean island and then engage you in an intergalactic battle, all in the same chapter." — Sean Mungal, Amazon Reviewer.
• "Its pages come alive with suspense, intrigue, local history, teenage romance, and above all - vivid and realistic depictions of alien life." — Nandini, Amazon Reviewer.
• "While Kaya Abaniah contains elements of its magical-realist forbearers, its futuristic and science fictional elements suggest a significant departure from many earlier writers who brought the supernatural elements of myth into direct contact with the modern world." — Sean Hutchison, Supernatural Literature, Volume 3, Monsters and Beasts.
