This is a cleverly worked out, clearly written and believable story which will be read with relish by most fantasy and horror story addicts and even though I don't usually enjoy either of those genres, I too, was totally hooked into the story.

the book grips the reader and builds outstanding tension with amazing skill. A roller coaster ride
Teenage reviewer, Around the Bookshops, February 2006.
Exceptionally well written from beginning to end, Secrets by F.M. McPherson is a gripping fantasy tale ... Deftly depicting the estranged life of the sixteen-year-old, Secrets carries readers through the gripping story of the young man, his father, and his only friend who has just as deep a secret as himself. An intricate novel ideal for those who enjoy mythic fantasy fiction, Secrets is very highly recommended reading.
Midwest Book Review
McPherson presents an original premise that is part Teen Wolf and part Fear Street, exploring the complexity of coming-of-age, fathers and sons, friendship, and trust.
