"Strange things began to happen in Mohaba after the takeover of evil souls, known as the Devols. Residents opened their doors to be confronted by monsters. Rumors spread about horrible things happening inside and outside everyone’s homes. Most people cowered inside their houses. They sentenced themselves and their families to lives in the shadows to avoid becoming prey. 

The town that had once been so beautiful that life could be seen in everything that moved lay in the shadow of evil. It is astonishing to me how it's humans survived centuries of torture. I guess they never felt the need to migrate elsewhere. Most of them had not known any better. They did not know about the outside world. They got used to Mohaba’s depressing weather, unaware of the town’s magical past. 

There were no more luminous sunny days making the apple trees glow in Mohaba. All the apples were gone, eaten by worms, and the remains had turned into dried up seeds. Only sounds of grief and sadness permeated the town. Soon after the Devol’s insurrection, Mohaba’s shiny blue sea turned gray, the wild waves dulled as the sun vanished. The profound salt smell in the air annoyed the senses and muted emotions. The sands blinded while inside the ocean, heaven still existed. The external darkness hid the beauty hiding under the surface while the depressing clouds covered the entire town from the seashore to its far borders."


"The Town of Mohaba'" is a fantasy fiction novel for young adult readers. It is a mystery series with a touch of romance combined with action and spirituality. The town of Mohaba is possessed by frightening creatures, Devols. When an unexpected lightning hits a hidden mansion, Jewl, it reveals the Devol's secret location that guarded their entire existence.

However, an unexpected event alters their plans. They are embarked on a journey of time where they encounter extraordinary creatures.
