Virtual Blog Tour Stop for Return to Zandria by Christine Norris

Today, Christine Norris stops on her virtual book tour at my blog. Her book, RETURN TO ZANDRIA comes out July 28th. You can find out more about her and her book at her website:

Christine Norris and her MySpace - Christine Norris's Myspace .
Return to Zandria will be officially released in print on July 28, and can be ordered from: LBF Books - and hopefully soon at Barnes and
The e-book version is now available in .pdf format from LBF, and should be up on Fictionwise, along with the first book, by month's end.

I got to read Return to Zandria and will be giving a review on it.

An Young Adult fantasy novel , I was caught from the frist three sentences: Ivy Peterson was not ordinary. Nor was she extraordinary or unusual. Ivy Peterson was More-Than-Ordinary. In other words this girl wouldn't have everyday adventures, but something more fantastical. Ivy had visited a place called Zandria, but she had almost forgotten it, growing up into a teenager. When she goes into the woods, looking for the gate that lead to Zandria, a fairy comes to her, telling her that she is needed, and that she has to come back. So she follows the fairy, Kaia into the Zandria, and with her is her best friend, Lori.

Though it is Young Adult, like Harry Potter, adults will enjoy this story. Unlike Harry Potter though. this is not set in our world, but more like Lord of the Rings, in a fantastical world.

I enjoyed reading it and give this book, five dragons.
