Fantastic fantasy that combines a love of magic, mystery, animals and adventure all in one great novel. With overtones of Redwall, The Mistmantle Chronicles is great for fans of that series, or slightly younger readers, as they journey in the world of Urchin and his friends. Ages 10 to 110 can enjoy these plucky animal warriors determined to stop the forces that threaten their island kingdom home. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

In the spirit of many fantasy animal stories, Martini has taken a favorite idea and turned it around making something that is a credit to the genre. Courage, leadership and self-awareness is fantastically mixed together to create something new and fresh. The first in the Crow Chronicles series tells of a crow family, the Kinaars, who find themselves tossed into a dangerous world that becomes even more dangerous after a rash act. The events that follow will divide the family. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Jeremy (after swallowing a pill-sized computer that is a sure fire way to learn the secret of being "cool") finds himself in a place he did not expect: the most popular kid in school and getting the girl of his dreams. But this takes a lot more work than he thought. Even with the map to success, things do not always work out the way you want. Vizzini has given the young adult genre a new voice (even if it does sound like Keanu Reeves). ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
