In Traitor in the Realm, by Patricia J. Boyle, fifteen-year-old Kallan, the daughter of a paleontologist, discovers a pre-historic-looking toothed bird that should have died out millions of years ago. Grandpa's property has always seemed magical to Kallan and her foster brother, but when they enter an undiscovered tunnel, they soon find themselves in a real magical world, full of curious creatures. If you're a fan of fantasy, you'll love Boyle's exciting story, filled with vivid details and memorable characters. Highly recommended.

In the grand storytelling tradition of The Hobbit, The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe, and Eragon, Patricia Boyle enchants with her YA fantasy, Traitor in the Realm, Book One in the Series: Next World Over. Constructing an entirely new world of adventure, Boyle engages us with believable characters who, in fighting against evil, discover amazing gifts within themselves. Each challenge evokes renewed courage and fires new friendships. Yet the story remains unpredictable and illusive, as every good story should-until the end.
