Lou has always known her family is different. They are not from earth but from a magical, mysterious place called Storey. Growing up under her grandfather's care and guidance, she has yearned to know more about this enigmatic place. Unfortunately, her frantic internet searches, instead of bringing up satisfactory answers, warn her enemies. When a group of people seeking entry to Storey abducts her grandfather and pursues her, Lou has to leave her home. To reach the magical land, she needs to follow the birds. But how will she succeed in her quest when all the birds seemed to have disappeared overnight? To find out, you have to read The Way to Storey by L.B. Anne.
The short length of The Way to Storey is misleading as L.B. Anne delivers a story complete with elements characteristic of the fantasy genre. A magical land, an evil group concocting sinister plans to gain entry, and a strong heroine to counter them - what more can one expect? The stubborn, wayward nature of Lou was endearing, and her quest was full of exciting adventures. Some twists toward the end finally made sense of the story and brought me an 'aha' moment. The writing style was succinct. I wished the book was longer as I wanted to know more about the fabled world of Storey. I can only hope that there will be a sequel to this book. Although this is geared mainly toward children, I will recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy.
