Mixing something old with something new

book cover imageNow we know that Frodo had hairy feet, but in the world of Tildi Summerbee, the smallfolk don't even have toes!

Jody Lynn Nye has written two books thus far in her series about smallfolk woman Tildi Summerbee - a woman who has lost her family and taken on her brother's apprenticeship to a wizard. Mix in a tree the size of a castle and a magical doomsday book and you've got quite a fantasy series on your hands!

The books, An Unexpected Apprentice, and A Forthcoming Wizard contain many Tolkienisms and fantasy standards, but have twists of humour and originality that keep them fresh and you awake at night reading them! It is my hope to see much more in the future from this wonderful author.
