    When I received this book in the mail I was immediately drawn to it. It looked like a fun book to read. Well, my intuition was right and I loved this book! <BR/><BR/>This is the story about a young girl named Root. She was brought to our world by someone from another and had to live with two grotesque women named Carblotta and Octavia. They reminded me of the aunts in JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH by Roald Dahl. Well, these aunts wanted Root to be their servant girl. When Root is fourteen she finds out that she is from Dre'amm, a land that is magical and is also troubled, and is to go on the greatest quest there ever was. <BR/><BR/>She and two others, the studious Liam and the charismatic Dwyn, make one team of many who have to see if they can find the Miist of Kalliope. There are six miist, so only six teams will win. <BR/><BR/>Root is a very well-written character and is very likable. She is smart, kind, and lovable. The boys on the quest have many layers. Liam is studious and, because he was raised in Dre'amm, very informative. He is also very loyal. Dwyn, like Root, was raised on Earth. He is also learning about how to be a good friend and is not what he seems to be. <BR/><BR/>While on this quest we learn along with Root and Dwyn the history of Dre'amm and also what magic they possess. We learn about hovermutts, road, chorm, simps, and many other awesome creatures. There are also villains here that are fantastic. You really want to hate them. Kor is just plain mean and is very cocky like only the rich can be. The main one, though, is Korkus, who is a powerful magician who is trying to take over Dre'amm. <BR/><BR/>There are also many questions that haven't been answered yet about this world and about Root and Dwym. I believe that there is more to their stories than meet the eye. There should be at least five more stories written in this series and I will be first in line to find out what happens to Root.

    Sure to be a new phenomenon┬┐

    Rarely does a book come along that so captivates me that I know without a doubt it is the beginning of a new phenomenon. The Questory of Root Karbunkulus is that book. I know without a doubt this book will capture the interest of readers and develop a large following. It is not fair to compare The Questory of Root Karbunkulus to Harry Potter, (as many reviewers have done) for I feel it surpasses that series. Kamilla Reid has created a world where a wisteria serves as a look out for her owner and magic abounds. A true challenge for an author is to see the landscape in their mind and adequately paint a word picture conveying that landscape. Reid did not do this adequately she did it superbly! Like many classic stories, Root Karbunkulus is on a quest. However, this is not your typical tale. Root is a multifaceted character--strong, loving, and intelligent. Along her journey, she meets many friends each one has a distinct voice. I cannot say enough good about this book. This is epic movie material. This is classic. This is sure to please both young teens and adults.
