Recommended to my kids can't wait to read the next one.” Heather, Goodreads ★★★★★“Sarah A Vogler leads us through a mind-boggling maze of Greek mythology, Gods and some serious villains. I’m in awe of such an entrancing story and can not wait to dive under the waters and beneath the pages of Hailey’s continued adventure.” Kellie, Goodreads ★★★★★“This story and the whole series is really good. I agree it is a great way to introduce kids to reading and encourage an early love of mythology and history. If any age enjoyed Harry Potter read this series you will enjoy it as well.” Vickie, Goodreads ★★★★★“What an incredible book!! I was swept away in this wonderfully written book. With the impulsivity you would expect from high school freshmen, we watch friendships grow and individuals learn who they are. It was a very unique spin on mythology with plenty of adventure. I think fans of Rick Riordan will greatly enjoy this book but it also has a bit of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer feel to it as well.’ Amy, Goodreads ★★★★★“What a brilliantly written and fun read this adventure was. Vogler uses gorgeous description to throw you into this wonderful world that she’s created. If you enjoy Greek mythology and being completely consumed by another world, I recommend reading this book, no matter how old you are. I can’t wait to read the next adventure Hailey and her friends get up to.” Neen, Goodreads ★★★★★

Shadows, Trees & Odd Mysteries: The Ghosts in the Trees - Second Edition (A Fantasy Mystery Series of Lore and Horrors- Book 1)

A STORY INSIDE A STORY INSIDE A STORY?? The Story:When a DIABOLICAL village sage schemes to have the great old NAYNAB TREE in the south-west corner of the village CHOPPED down for personal gain, a DEFIANT young boy must find a way to save the tree . . . and maybe more! . . . Inside a Story:OSWALD TAJ, age ten, who everyone called ‘Oddy’, was a PECULIAR young boy — sorry, man (Oddy hated it when people called him a boy). Oddy thought he was too old for stories — at least regular ones. But Oddy loved BIZARRE tales of ADVENTURE, MYSTERY, and SCARE like the ones Grandpa told. Tonight was a perfect night for a SPOOKY tale. But little did Oddy know, TONIGHT was going to be different . . . because after this tale, things were NEVER going to be the same for him, again! . . . Inside a Story:The NAYNAB have been around for millennia. Most people see them as regular trees. But some know that the NAYNAB hold many SECRETS. Fewer still know that the NAYNAB may very well be at the heart of the most TERRIFYING SECRET of them all — and of an age-old EVIL which will stop at nothing until it takes over the WORLD . . . The GHOST IN THE TREES follows the MYSTERIOUS myths, ODD occurrences and TERRIFYING tales that revolve around the little-known Naynab trees. AN INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR: Q1: What is the Shadows, Trees & Odd Mysteries (STOM) series about?A: What if a conscious Earth "Mother" could strike back? That is the premise of the STOM series (previously: The Roots of the Naynab) chronicles the perilous journeys of our heroes in their quest to find the significance of the Naynab trees. Making shocking discoveries along the way, they come face-to-face with evil men, strange creatures, supernatural beings and a dangerous fight for survival — not only of their own but indeed — of the entire world itself. Q2: How should the books be read?While each of the first three titles can be read as standalone books, the story-line in the STOM series is staggered into three narratives: One about a ten-year-old boy called ODDY and his GRANDPA in the story the Ghosts in the Trees, and another about three friends — ALAN, MAYA AND PHUDY, and their adventures in title the Madness Tree. Both these stories take place in the present time. The third story-line is different in that, it comprises of written accounts kept by a man — an explorer, called REM NAMDLIV, who discovered strange facts and the significance of the Naynab trees in the late eighteenth century. All three story-lines are however connected and upcoming titles will reveal their convergence. Inspired by nature and the incredible world we live in, the STOM series is a fantasy mystery series (the author calls it, earth-fiction), with dashes of folklore, action and bone-chilling horror, that explore the mysteries of the Naynab. (Find out more at www.malcolmfernandesbooks.com) Q3: Who are these books ideally for?A: This is a fast-paced story for middle graders, early young adult readers, and anyone who likes family-friendly fantasy mixed with a ton of mystery, hidden wink-winks, and action. Though it might not be apparent by reading just one of the first three stories, I like to think of the overall tone of the STOM series as Indiana Jones meets Corpse Bride meets Lord of the Rings with a gradual buildup in themes, timelines and characters. Beware! This book can turn casual readers into voracious ones. Q4: How many books are there in the series?A: There is 1 book in the series currently with more two more titles soon to be released. Q5: What can we expect from upcoming books in the series?A: The series is going to get a lot more exciting with multiple plot lines and characters that will evolve, as well as plenty of new twists and surprises. So, definitely look out for these upcoming releases and content. To find out more, jump into the SHADOWS, TREES & ODD MYSTERIES experience online at www.malcolmfernandesbooks.com
