Anxious to prove there's no 'L' on her forehead, fourteen-year-old Root Karbunkulus is determined to lead her team to finding all six mystical treasures of DréAmm. Not even all the cheating, frauding, scamming, threatening and hexing that run rampant in the race can stop her.

That is until something strange starts happening. Something dark and terribly, terribly wrong...

The Questory of Root Karbunkulus review for readersfavorite.com
This is the most charming tale I have read in a while. A master author writes it beautifully. The story moves flawlessly from beginning to end.
Two old sisters, both uneducated and lazy, live together in a place far away from others. The sisters like it that way; no one meddles in their affairs. One day when they are coming back from the market, where they sell all their vegetables, which they steal from others, they have the scare o

I received this book for free from the publisher. All content and opinions are my own.

The Questory of Root Karbunkulus, Reid’s first novel, is a delightful YA fantasy book (with an awesome website). Anyways, we first meet Root, our hero, living in a halfhouse (a house split in half) with two horrid aunts that definitely bare a resemblance to the horrid aunts of James and the Giant Peach fame. As the book opens, fourteen-year-old Root finds that she is not related to the aunts (whew!) and is actu

When I received this book in the mail I was immediately drawn to it. It looked like a fun book to read. Well, my intuition was right and I loved this book!

This is the story about a young girl named Root. She was brought to our world by someone from another and had to live with two grotesque women named Carblotta and Octavia. They reminded me of the aunts in JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH by Roald Dahl. Well, these aunts wanted Root to be their servant g

This book takes you on a fun and exciting adventure with well-developed characters that you come to love and want to see succeed. The level of imagination by this author rivals JR Rowling as every page was a new discovery of magical whimsy and delight. Loved it!

I was born into a rambunctious family of redheads - a twin and the only left-hander in the family.

Now I'm a single mum who writes funny fantasy adventures. I'd say I've been a storyteller my whole life, from angsty teen poetic sagas to stage plays to - best of all - a large collection of cheesy, like seriously cheesy-fun-oh-my-god-we-laughed-so-hard-making-these musical comedies.
