A great new middle grade fantasy/adventure title will be hitting shelves this month from Tanglewood Press. The Rock of Ivanore is the first book in the Celestine Chronicles that, according to author Laurisa White Reyes, started out as a bedtime story for her son.
Marcus, our protagonist, must participate in the Great Quest that takes place annually for boys when they turn 14. This year, they are out to find the Rock of Ivanore without knowing what or where the Rock may be. The journey encounters many interesting twists, turns and characters along the way all the while keeping the reader in suspense until the very end. Publishers Weekly’s recent review of this title calls it “an old-school quest fantasy, but Marcus is a hero who engages challenges in a way that is both human and admirable.” This book will spark interest for reluctant readers boys and girls alike.
