The Toadhouse Trilogy: Book One
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 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 intoThe Time Machine, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, A Tale of Two Cities, and the epic Indian sagaThe Ramayana will she learn her true heritage and restore the balance of the worlds... if she can stay alive.
