Author Linell Jeppsen takes the reader on a wonderful journey into magical fantasy in her latest novel, The War of Odds.

Although this is way outside my usual reading genre, I loved this story with its combination of humans, witches, fairies, elves, sprites, trolls and other creatures of the universe. It is a spellbinding tale that totally captivates the reader in this truly enchanting story.

It is the story of 16-year-old Sara Giddings who is forced to deal with life's tragedies after the death of her mother. She relocates with her father to a tiny community in Washington, which overlaps the land of the fae. Here, a young sprite named Pollo discovers that Sara is not a typical teenager, but a witch with immense, untapped power- the power to heal.

There are some wonderful characters in this novel, including Pollo, a cat named Hissaphat, and the wood nymph, Muriel who convince Sara that her powers may be the only key to healing what ails the fae, and Timaron, king of the Unseelie court.

This is a fantastic story of good versus evil, love, adventure, magic and the value of true friendship. An excellent Young Adult novel, but adults will love it too.

I have read several of Ms. Jeppsen's other books, but this is the first YA fantasy, so it's definitely different. Sara Giddings is motherless and moves with her father to a new town, where she stumbles into the land of the fae. The faerie world quickly recognizes she is a witch with psychic healing powers, and recruits her and two friends to help heal Timaron, the king of the fantasy world, who has declared war upon humans. The journey to the king's court is fraught with dangers - powerful dark magic, and a host of evil demons and monsters lying in wait to prevent her passage.

This story reminds me of some of the Hans Christian Andersen tales - very dark and with lots of death, despair, tragedy, and sadness. I thought it moved a little too quickly at times, and some scenes were not given enough weight to allow the horror to register sufficiently. And perhaps this is needed to keep the younger readers from becoming overwhelmed.

Overall, another fine foray into fiction for Ms. Jeppsen. Not my favorite, but still a wonderful read, and well worth your time, especially if you like fairy tale fantasies.
