Twelve-year-old Dawn Marie Baxter, a spoiled but generous rich kid, is killed in a boating accident with her grandmother. Or, is she?
The Book of Moncoto is the story of her continued existence in a magical land.
Everyone in the village is happy with their new lives. Nana, her grandmother, trusts in the magic. Dawn, however, refuses to believe the magic that sustains their existence is anything but advanced technology and is determined to find a way to thwart it.
Dawn’s plan to locate a special stream, she’s convinced is a portal, and return her grandmother and herself to their former life ends in catastrophe for her Nana and the village of Laven-Moors. Now, she has to save her grandmother, the village, and attempt to win back her life through a quest that may be doomed to failure.
This middle-grade fantasy plunges us into a world of magic, mystery, and danger.
