About the Author

J.T. Cope IV was born in Texas, and grew up in the small farming community of Wheelock, living on land that had been in the family for over a century. In 2002 J.T. graduated from Centenary College of Louisiana with a bachelor's degree in physics. This college was also where J.T. met his beautiful wife, Katie. He joined the United States Marine Corps in January 2003 and was married to Katie in July of that same year. In 2006 he returned from Iraq and in a small table in the back of a local coffee shop, on a cold (about 78 degrees for Hawaii) and rainy day took down the first notes and ideas for his Countryside Series. In November 2006, J.T and Katie moved back to Fort Worth, Texas where J.T. pursued a master's in geology at The University of Texas in Arlington. As a geologist, J.T. spent much of his time visiting drilling rigs, and picking through rocks brought up form two miles below the surface. However, this time allowed J.T. the opportunity he needed for his book, Countryside, to grow. Over the next two years, Countryside received the love and attention it needed in order to turn into the book it is today.

After reading the first book in the series, I was looking forward to see what happens to Luke and his friends next. And I wasn't disappointed. Luke is as curious and adventurous as ever, and although he's told time and again to stay clear of the dangers 'attacking' the area, Luke can't stay out of it. Some of this is due to circumstances beyond his control. Other times, it's not. But it's exactly this inability to always obey, which makes him a true kid. Luke is in general a good kid too. . .despite the darkness that he's trying to control. . .and truly respects those around him. Sometimes he looses his temper, but again, it's these characteristics which make it easy for readers to relate to him. From the first gnome attack in the beginning pages, Luke and his friends find themselves wrapped up in an unexpected adventure. Dangerous creatures, creepy individuals, puzzling messages and all sorts of magic make a delightful mystery full of tension and surprises, which kept me guessing until the very end. Kids will love diving into the fantasy filled world, while following Luke and his friends as they try to figure out what is really going on. My favorite part of this series is the simpleness of the world. Despite the mythical creatures and use of magic, much of the described world is familiar--sports, teachers, and lemonade. The scenes are beautifully described making it easy to dive into the world. And the importance of family and friends, and the love they have for each other is always clear no matter how bad things get. This is a fun series, full of adventure, action and fantasy, which kids ages nine and up are sure to enjoy. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
