Successful poets have imagination, talent, dedication to the word of soul. That creates a special vibe that captures reader's imagination. "Gentle Demon" is the food for the mind. It's a combination of beautiful comics and romantic poetry bound in one book. Around 50 outstandingly drawn illustrations by Alec Verny and Marianna Golodova will never let you forget it, once you open the book. The selection of accessible, imaginative poems is excellent, and Verny's/Golodova clean-lined pictures enhance the feelings and emotions in the words freely flowing on the pages of that book.
