Domino Garrison's only memory of his father was the saying, "Eventually, they all fall," and he has no idea what it means. Fifteen-year-old Domino cannot imagine anything, but he sees what others imagine. Hermon always imagines a dragon that is sometimes a Pegasus. Domino becomes best friends with Griswold Griffin, who wants to become a magician, and has a great imagination that usually includes rabbits. Griswold gets Lucy Jenkins to sign his petition for a talent show by promising her a date with Domino. All of a sudden, paranormal activities start happening that could destroy the world. Domino's boss, Miles, believes Max Garrison, his father, is responsible. However, when Max is found, he is in a medically induced coma, unable to use his ability to turn fantasy into reality. If Max is not responsible for all the chaos, who is? Who else can turn fantasy into reality? Follow Domino, Griswold, Lucy, and Miles as they seek the truth by reading Eventually They All Fall by Jenna Marcus.

One of the best aspects of this young adult book is that it kept me intrigued throughout it. Flying dragons, a monstrous doctor, and frogs falling from the sky are only a few paranormal elements you will encounter while reading this book. Jenna Marcus did a fantastic job describing this book's characters and events. There were times when I could not tell the difference between what was real and what was fantasy, which was a successful aspect of the plot. I appreciate that the author included life lessons in the book that young adults can learn from. For example, I think everyone should understand and realize that secrets are deceptive, and they will eventually catch up with you. I believe a couple of quotes in the book will inspire readers. One was by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, "Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth." The other was by Peter Parker, who said, "with great power comes great responsibility."

The only negative aspect I encountered in this book was the severity of the non-borderline profanity. This profanity is inappropriate for young readers in the 13 to 15 age group, who are part of the author's targeted audience of this book.

I am delighted to give this professionally edited book a perfect score of 4 out of 4 stars. There is absolutely no reason to give this book a lower score because it has a well-written and fast-paced plot that flows smoothly throughout the book.

I recommend this book to readers over the age of 16 who like science-fiction books full of paranormal mystery. I would caution young adult readers and their parents that the content revolving around child abuse, drug use, gore, and non-borderline profanity may not be suitable for those in the 13 to 15 age group that the author indicated as part of the targeted audience.

Goodness, I wonder sometimes how those age ranges are determined. The content you mentioned does not sound appropriate at all.

It looks like this book contains valuable real life lessons amid all the fantasy. Thanks for a such a great review of the intriguing story Bertha Jackson. There is a sense that it draws readers in to another world where 'somebody' is responsible for chaos. It's a shame the age range of readers is restricted by the profane language as I'm sure younger readers would enjoy it.

Not a big fan when an author includes things above the age of the target audience. But otherwise, great review.
