Much to my surprise, my husband has lately embraced his inner geek, using my Amazon account to scoop up every sci-fi dragon book ever penned. And when I out him in front of family members and friends, I discover that many of them are secret dragon geeks, too. Perhaps there's something to this fantasy lit. It has at the very least piqued my curiosity. Hence, I have been in search of sci-fi/fantasy that meets my special requirements. I seek stand-alone, sequel-less novels, preferably with fairies and/or secret worlds. It is difficult to find fantasy novels without a handful or more of sequels surrounding them.
Long story, short, "War for the Oaks" is just such a book. Written in 1987, with backdrop in the Minneapolis music scene, it has a modern edge, yet harks back to the simpler, old-school, pre-cellphone days.
