Overview

Kate Archer left home years ago, swearing that she would die before she returned to Maine. As plans go, it was a pretty good one — simple and straightforward.

Not quite fast enough, though.

Before she can quite manage the dying part, Kate gets notice that her grandmother is missing, leaving the carousel that is the family business untended.

And in Archers Beach, that means ‘way more trouble than just a foreclosure.'

    The best carousel since Ray Bradbury

    Every once in a while, I come across a fantasy that is immensely satisfying on many different levels. This wonderfully-wrought book by Sharon Lee was one such treat. It falls comfortably within a number of genres: it's contemporary, romantic and in first person; it's got a flawed but passionate and courageous protagonist; the locale is a small town on the Maine coast, drenched in color; it's got some interesting twists on the lands of Faerie, a council of "the Wise," evil magicians, the corrupting influences of power, naiads and selkies and elemental spirits; best of all, it's got the spookiest carousel since Ray Bradbury, complete with a fanged, batwinged horse that's really an imprisoned criminal spirit. Lee weaves together all these elements with a sure and skillful touch.

    Best book in a while

    I didn't want to put this book down. It was a good mystery with lots of suspense along with humor. The Otherworldly characters are interesting and refreshingly different.
    I intend to look into her other books as she has a way of writing that makes you want to hope the story never ends.
    Although I don't like stories to go more than three or four books, this one should continue!!

    Great contemporary fantasy from Sharron Lee. Intriguing plot line. Vivid, realistic characters. A great book to read and re-read.

    This is a marvelous book. Mostly about the Maine coast, and the summer attractions. This overlayed with a dusting of earch magic, elven magic, and just plain good story telling.

    The characters are real. Perhaps you have never noticed the magic, but you probably have noticed the person sitting at the other end of the dinner counter, or the person taking your ticket at the Carousel booth.

    You should start the three book series with this book, and ease into the full series. Or maybe just buy all three for your Nook, and spend a lovely weekend reading.

    In fact after reading this book, I paid mor attention to the carousel at this summer's amusement park. Riding the flashy white horse on the moving pole, the giraffe, the standing charger, and watchiing the people and how they chose their rides.

    This is a fabulous Maine horror-fantasy tale

    In the resort of Archers Beach, Maine, elderly Bonny Pepperidge vanishes without a trace. When she learns her beloved relative is missing, Bonny's worried granddaughter Kate Archer rushes home to the town she grew up in hoping to find her grandma. She also reluctantly takes over Bonny's role as Guardian of Fun Country amusement park, a place where fae criminals are exiled and become the "animals".

    Drug smuggler Joe Nemeier is unhappy with Kate's arrival. He sends his hit men to kill her. Meanwhile, the earth spirits inform a worried Kate that they think Bonny has discovered where Kate's missing mom has been all these years. However, the family reunion may prove deadly if the three generations of females reunite as besides the Nemeier mob, an evil fiend pursues Kate's mom who just escaped from devilish incarceration.

    This is a fabulous Maine horror-fantasy tale. Sharon Lee's vivid imagery will transport readers into a foggy deadly atmosphere. By returning home Kate becomes the focus of otherworldly and human predators in a fabulous setting. Readers will be spellbound as all hell literally breaks out just because the prodigal granddaughter has come home; and like a magnet has attracted Something Wicked This Way Comes (Ray Bradbury).
