Andrea Churchill does a great job setting the mood of her story. Readers feel the desperation of the town and its people as they struggle day to day to survive. Their town is cut off from any other civilization because of an ingrained belief of a creature, Ilere that lives in the forest surrounding the town. The people of the town see Ilere as an evil monster whose goal is to kill anyone who ventures into the woods. Churchill’s main character, Uallas has lost his reason to live and journeys into the Lerewood forest with the hopes of being killed by the creature. But Uallas soon learns that the creature is not evil at all. Ilere’s reason for existence is to stop the malignancy of the town from spreading to other towns. I particularly like the way Churchill assigns characteristics to both Ilere and the mayor of the town to demonstrate the differences. For instance, Ilere observes the town’s people to learn their language in hopes of communication while the mayor observes the people to understand how he can use them to get what he wants. I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading something else from this author.

It is very rare when an author creates a unique concept and story. Andrea Churchill has reinvented the age old conflict between man and nature, good vs evil. She has created what may become a timeless fable with interesting twists and turn that makes you think and contemplate while enjoying the story which reads at a brisk pace. She is a serious talent... with her physical beauty, tremendous command of the english language and excellent writing style, as well as her limitless imagination, I look forward to her next book and rise to the top in the fantasy, sci-fi genre.
