The handwritten journal of a boy named Billy was found in a hollow tree trunk in the woods. The pages from the first half of the notebook had been ripped out. At the time the journal was discovered, Billy had been missing for three months.
It Took Billy is a dark fantasy for adult readers. The story centers around the harrowing journey of a teenage boy who is abducted by an ancient demon, and thrust into a twisted world full of cruel magic, powerful mystics, and enraged immortals. Left with nothing but his notebook and a pen, Billy chronicles every detail of his terrifying ordeal.
This is Billy’s journal.

“The writing is exquisite, and every word propels the reader deeper into the folds of a world crafted with meticulous detail. It’s one of those books that are so absorbing you can’t put down, but at the same time are actually afraid to see what comes next. Some of the twists in the story will truly make you wonder and just when you think the story can’t get any darker, Lopez de Leon knocks it out of the park with a development that is so creative and distinct it just leaves you stunned.”
-Reader Views Review
"The author’s descriptions of the disgusting rituals shift the novel from fantasy to horror and keep the pages turning. Its easy-to-read narration is as addictive as the drugged bread Billy eats."
