Book Review: "The Tethered World" by Heather L.L. FitzGerald

At 16, Sadie Larcen is a normal homeschooled teenager until the night the police knock on her door to say they'd found her parents' van abandoned. Sadie is not prepared for the family secret that they are charged with keeping the secrets of the Tethered World and now she and her siblings must venture into this strange land to rescue her parents.

It took me a little bit to get the feel and rhythm of the book, but once I did, I got more and more excited about it. I really liked the characters and felt the tension of the adventure and suspense of what was going to happen. I was intrigued by Heather's conception of the origin of fantasy creatures like gnomes, trolls, dwarves, and etc. This book was unlike any I'd ever read and it was fresh and original. I'm looking forward to reading more about the Larcen family. I don't usually read fantasy books, but this one was great!

This book sounds interesting. I do happen to read a lot of fantasy books. I'm going now to check it out on Kindle.... :-)
