A captivating ride through an array of fantastical lands richly depicted. The heart of the book is it's main character, Alice, an ordinary girl thrown into extraordinary situations. Her journey to find confidence in herself is engaging and provides an underlying thread drawing the story together. Her companions and enemies alike are richly crafted and equally pull the heartstrings, give chills, and bring laughter. The world is brought to life in vivid detail. The magic pervading the entire story is at once recognizable as a good vs evil setup, but also unique in its execution. Here the familiar kind of magic with wands and incantations is considered evil, while our herione uses the written word and her imagination to work the spell. The landscapes range from beautiful green prairies to dark, dank forests to perpetually parched desert. The lands are teeming with Castles, fairies, goblins, magicians, and a talking cat who becomes Alice's teacher, protector and best friend. But beware! All is not as it seems. You may be surprised, you will definitely be on the edge of your seat.

The Author is a young woman who finds her way into an alternate world where she has magical powers. Powers not of the spoken word but of the written word. In this world she is hunted by the evil she must overthrow. She finds several companions who help her including a talking cat. The end ties up the story but leaves the opening for a sequel. If a sequel is in the future I hope Bo the cat remains a major character. A good read. Hoping for a sequel.
