{Book Spotlight} The Toadhouse Trilogy by Jess Lourey

The Toadhouse Trilogy (Book #1) by Jess Lourey
Paperback, 300 pages
Published July 17th 2012 by Toadhouse Books
In Book One of THE TOADHOUSE TRILOGY, Aine believes herself to be a regular teenager in 1930s Alabama, but when a blue-eyed monster named Biblos attacks, she discovers that the reclusive woman raising her isn't really her grandmother, that fairies are real, and that she's been living inside a book for the past five years. With her blind brother, Spenser, she flees the pages of the novel she's called home, one terrifying step ahead of Biblos' black magic. Her only chance at survival lies in beating him to the three objects that he desires more than life.

As she undertakes her strange and dangerous odyssey, Aine must choose between a family she doesn't remember and her growing attraction to a mysterious young man named Gilgamesh. Only through treacherous adventures into THE TIME MACHINE, DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE, A TALE OF TWO CITIES, and the epic Indian saga THE RAMAYANA will she learn her true heritage and restore the balance of the worlds... if she can stay alive.
Review by others:
"Young adult science fiction and fantasy is such a dynamic category right now – arguably some of the strongest writing in all of genre fiction is happening there – and, even with all of that competition, teen readers should add Lourey’s The Toadhouse Trilogy: Book One to their list of “must read” releases. It's that good." -Paul Goat Allen (Chicago Tribune; full review here.)
