With chatrooms and fantasy fiction forums inundated on a daily basis with requests for new fantasy books recommendations, it is refreshing to see that many choices are available for under $5 on the Amazon Kindle. One such fantasy fiction series is The Tales of Tanglewood, by author Scott Michael Kessman.
It’s been two years since the first novel in the YA fantasy series, entitled "The Lon Dubh Whistle," was published. The novel received rave reviews and drew comparisons to such popular epics as Harry Potter and Eragon, and fans anxiously awaited the next installment.
The wait is over, as the second novel in the Tales of Tanglewood YA fantasy book series has finally been published by Lon Dubh Publishing. Entitled “The Curse of Satyr Stump,” the second novel continues the adventures of Colin, the boy with Blood of the Fey, and his fey companions, Ailfrid the ferrish, Deidre the elf, and the druid Bairtlemead Muffingrow.
The second novel also delves a bit deeper into Celtic mythology and Irish folklore, with a alternate take on the Celtic legend of Grainne and Fionn, and the introduction of classic Irish faerie creatures, such as the leprechauns and a pooka.
Both novels in the YA fantasy book series are available in paperback at major booksellers online and can be ordered by most brick and mortar stores. They are also both available on the Kindle for the low price of only $4.99 each, worthy additions to the list of fantasy under five dollars.
It should also be noted that while the Tales of Tanglewood books fall into the genre of YA fantasy, they have actually been enjoyed by the YA market and many adults as well. In fact, it seems as though an older audience has indeed found something magical in the Tales of Tanglewood series, perhaps a much needed reminder that magic does still exist in this world, if only we take the time to look.
