Product Description

Product Description

Seventeen year old Jo Greer's been having nightmares since her Hanni, her grandmother, died a year ago, and all summer they've been getting worse--so much worse that now she's sometimes unsure what's real and what isn't.

While helping with her cousins' annual Harvest Faire, she loses track of an entire morning. When her friend Aidan shakes her awake, she finally admits how bad it's gotten and how terrified she is.

A few minutes later her friend Young Tom seems to change for a moment right before her eyes, and soon he starts her on a quest to unravel the mysteries about her grandmother's death, her father's disappearance, and her self.

Oak and Mirrors is a YA fantasy that straddles the line between novel and novella at ~40,000 words. It's also middle grade friendly.

About the Author

Ceri Evans lives in the Lorane wine valley southwest of Eugene, Oregon, very close to the site where she put Morgan's Farm. Sadly, she's never seen any hint of a local fae population, but she keeps hoping that will change. Ceri shares her oddly shaped 1940s cottage with her husband and seven mystical beasts of beastliness, the kitties of Cattycorner Cottage. She loves to read as well as write, she's an enthusiastic knitter, artist, and cat-herder, and she's the sort of gardener who believes in benign neglect, edible ornamentals, permaculture, and encouraging the local wildlife. Her favorite drink is homemade cocoa (hot in the winter and cold in the summer), her favorite color is purple (from regally deep to brilliantly fuschia), and her hair changes without warning from her natural brown and silver to pink, purple, blue, or red.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Admirable Female Protagonist and a Pleasant Change of Pace 4 Sep 2013
By G. Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
There are lots of books that involve fairies, and fairytale-like elements, but few of them do it well enough to hold my interest.

Ceri Evans' fae are neither necessarily good or bad by default, but have developed personalities that allow them to make their own choices and promises. A refreshing change in the genre, I enjoyed getting to know Jo's friends and enemies and uncovering their secrets alongside her.

Another pleasant surprise is that the book is not relationship-driven. It isn't about Jo and the fae-boy who saves her and makes everything all right again, like most books in the genre. Jo is on her own quest, and while her friends help her, no one does anything for her, and the primary romance in the book exists between her parents. Her stirring feelings for a friend do not become the focus of the book, nor does her love interest take centre stage.

Jo is a realistic teenage girl with a strong drive to solve the mysterious disappearance of her father. Not particularly a girly-girl, I think most teens, regardless of gender, would find it easy to relate to Jo. She is an admirable female character, and a welcome addition to the YA world.

This book sets up a series very well -- there are still more questions, more puzzles, and more things the book leaves us curious about -- but it also stands alone well. I'm looking forward to following this author.
