One night, his attempted suicide is rudely interrupted by one of the residents, and he's recruited to play a game called Cryptofauna. The bizarre contest of worldwide mischief and meddling might actually help the blue custodian discover a reason to life, if he can survive the deadly trials that await...
“If Alice and Wonderland and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to The Galaxy had a love child, it’d be Cryptofauna. This fantasy novel creates an acid dream of lovable characters, tense twists, and a storyworld unlike any I’ve experienced. […] it’s a beautiful story, funny at times, ridiculous in the best possible way, intense and action packed." - Nico Bell Writes
"[...] a very readable fast-paced adventure packed with fantastic and ridiculous invention.” - Ingenious Cat
“Every so often, you come across a book that leaves you wondering if you should be looking into psychedelic drugs, because you realize that your reality is rather limited. This is definitely one of those books. [...] one of the strangest, most intriguing things I've ever read.” - Songs Wrote my Story
“Cryptofauna is fantastically strange, it's so funny and I found myself laughing out loud multiple times. But it's also deep and poignant and [the] attention to detail is superb.” -Rae’s Reading Lounge
