Product Description

Product Description

In MAXWELL HUXLEY’S DEMON, when nine-year-old Maxwell Huxley and three others break free from their mountain-top “school” for gifted children – a place where kids mysteriously vanish when they turn ten – a fantastical chase around the world begins. Pursuing answers and freedom, Max unintentionally creates a new world: a world where friends and family meet their demons, where artificial beings come to life, and where nanotechnology is indistinguishable from magic. Maxwell pays a heavy price to discover what he was bred for.

One part Ender, one part Bourne, and a dash of Harry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the Book 10 July 2012
By Tracy G - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading Maxwell Huxley's Demon. The writing is wonderful. The author, Michael Conn tells a story of Max and his search for answers. Readers will be able to identify with Max and his feelings of isolation and being different. The other characters Walker, Virginia, Naomi, Horace and Lara are well thought out. There are lots of interesting details in this book, and the action scenes come to life. I also like how Michael easily transitions from one section of the book to another. Waiting patiently for the second book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding new book, will be added to my must re-read list 27 May 2012
By Brad Williams - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Its rare that I buy a book and then proceed to read it all in one sitting. Last night I started ready and couldn't stop reading until almost 4.

Maxwell Huxley's Demon was fast moving, engaging novel and I'm now stuck waiting for the next book.

If you are a fan of fantasy or sci-fi novels that this book will probably be great for you. If it helps you decide if this book might be great for you I'm a big fan Terry Goodkind, Robert Jordon, Terry Brookes, LE Modesitt and similar authors...

5.0 out of 5 stars Canadian Debut Novel 27 May 2012
By MysteryReader - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Maxwell Huxley's Demon is about a courageous boy, Maxwell, a boy looking for answers, trusting no one, and trying to fit in. The story takes the reader on an exciting journey, where we care about the outcome and the characters, where we feel part of the environment, and where our imagination takes off. Funny, sad and scary all rolled into one story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun action, exciting chases, clever technology 21 Jun 2012
By Christopher J. Lynch - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After the first few chapters I was loving the action. The author has a great way of describing the chase and fight scenes, an there are quite a few novel concepts and inventions that Max uses to interesting effect. Without giving anything away, I can say that there are some pretty high concepts present here, but written to the young adult audience that makes them accessible and engaging.

Max is a really messed-up little dude, but he's on a mission and it seems that nothing will stand in his way.

I'm not sure where the series is headed and I can't wait for book two to find out.
My 12-year-old is halfway through already and loving it.
Hurry up Mr. Conn, don't keep us waiting too long!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good But A Bit Redundant 13 May 2013
By Gary Blum - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Interesting story but basic plot kept repeating itself making. Also, would have liked a bit more detail as to how these children were being used by the "secre" organization. I mean just one of these kids could have stopped or started a war on terror.
