The Man in the Box Thriller/suspsense (currently being revised for a second edition)
“This was a heart-stopping suspense adventure like I haven’t read in a long time. The author does a great job of interfusing light humor with the intense action moments–and there are a lot of them. From battling dinosaurs to ghost-demons, I was always anxious for Robbie and wondered how he would make it out of the danger. Now that is building suspense when you’re wondering how a character could ever get out of his predicament even though you know he has to.”
-Cherese Vines, author and blogger
“Andrew Toy has created a unique and interesting story that spans several genres from mystery and adventure to fantasy … Toy’s debut novel will leave readers talking and will make them instant fans of his storytelling abilities. This will surely be a must-read for every adult that once created a world of their own when they were young, just by using their imaginations.”
-Nicole McManus, reviewer and blogger
“Expect dinosaurs and giant creepy-crawlies. And if that kind of thing scares you, then you’re like me, which means you’ll go ahead and read the book anyway, with no one to blame but yourself for all the flinching you’ll do … There was no going to bed until I’d reached the end. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat with worry about how everyone was going to get out of this, heart thumping out of control the whole time, except for that one minute where it almost stopped.”
-Danielle E. Shipley, author and blogger
“I was not disappointed—I finished it in a day. I had a hard time putting it down … There is more universality here. Robbie comes close to being an archetypal figure. He is Everyman, and his box is everyone’s “box.”’
-Ken Stewart, blogger
“Simple stories distract us. Good stories stir us. Powerful stories move us. Andrew Toy has written a story that rips the shroud covering the silent beast crouching near all of us, the life of emptiness and despair. He creates a compelling narrative truth of life as it is and as we want it; and he offers a peek at a hope for us all. I urge you: Relax in your favorite chair, pull up a footstool, and read The Man in the Box. Be prepared for the peaks and valleys of adventure, fantasy, real life, and war.”

Be sure to pick up a copy of my newest book, I Am the Lion, for your Kindle here!
… it was wonderful…I Am the Lion truly left me with lessons in my heart that I didn’t expect to learn. So personal. So honest. It 100% captivated me, and I couldn’t put it down! (And it was a big football weekend too!)
I am the Lion is a heart-warming, heart-wrenching roller coaster ride that will have you smiling, crying and sighing in frustration but it’s all worth it. Such a rare treat to read. Perfect Holiday read and socking stuffer.
What I thought would be [a] small diversion turned out to be a delightful experience…The only downside, i don’t have more of this to read!
