Thomas Holland in the Realm of the Ogres
By K. M. Doherty
Genre: Middle Grade Magical Fantasy
Tom and his friends restored the barrier – but that was a temporary fix. Now they must find a permanent solution, the artifact, to protect Elfhaven for a thousand years and bring Tom and his mom safely back home to Earth.
To find the artifact they are forced to embark on a dangerous quest through the deadly Demon Forest, cross the raging Icebain River, and solve the riddle of the Cave of Nightmares.
On their desperate journey they must climb an active volcano past scalding geysers and deadly giant ice-worms.
Standing in their way are a bungling troll and ogre, a shape-shifting demon, and a demented fairy queen. With gremlins and wizards in hot pursuit only Tom’s scientific knowledge and the use of light and dark magic can save them.
Did I mention dragons?
This book was loads of fun to read. The story flows perfectly for middle grade readers. It had lots of action and great characters. I think this book would be a great addition to any grade school or middle school library. I know I will definitely be getting it for my 9 year old nephew. We love to read together and this is the kind of stories we enjoy!
No matter what Bellchar the troll says, K. M. Doherty is the real author of the Thomas Holland series.
KM is a software engineer who has raced sailboats, skied, flew hang gliders, studied martial arts, rode motorcycles, been a professional musician, and acted in theater. He loves to write, hike, do Tai Chi, attend plays, and he watches way too many movies. KM is a professional public speaker giving presentations at schools, businesses and civic organizations across the country.
The author also donates books to children in need.
KM’s love of science and technology began in his childhood and continues to this day. He believes that for writing fantasy and magic anything goes, however, for science fiction, the physics must be correct or follow current scientific theories.
Finally, and most important, please remember K. M. Doherty is the true author. Don’t listen to Bellchar. As Avani, Goban, and Devraj say in this book: HE’S A TROLL!
