The Toadhouse Trilogy

This first in a young adult trilogy combines classic literature with adventure, mystery, and romance.

Aine (pronounced "Aw-nee") believes herself to be a regular teenager in 1930s Alabama, but when a blue-eyed monster named Biblos attacks, she discovers that the reclusive woman raising her isn't really her grandmother and that she's been living inside a book for the past five years. With her blind brother, Spenser, she flees the pages of the novel she's called home, one terrifying step ahead of Biblos' black magic. Her only chance at survival lies in beating him to the three objects that he desires more than life.

As she undertakes her strange and dangerous odyssey, Aine must choose between a family she doesn't remember and her growing attraction to a mysterious young man named Gilgamesh. Only through treacherous adventures into The Time Machine, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, A Tale of Two Cities, and the epic Indian saga The Ramayana will she learn her true heritage and restore the balance of the worlds... if she can stay alive.

Professional Reviews

“Lourey's wonderful way with words will whisk readers away to an amazing new world!”

--Anthony and Agatha Award winning author Chris Grabenstein

A Must Read
This young adult novel by my favorite mystery writer (Murder by Month series) is a great read. It has mystery, mayhem, monsters, magic, and literary allusions galore. It kept my interest from the first page. I love the characters and the premise of moving through classical novel settings as the young protagonists try to solve the riddle of their ancestry.

I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Classic Storyline, Incredible Twist
I'm a 14-year-old girl who loved The Hunger Games, The Help, Ship Breaker, and Wicked. This book is packed with excitement and mystery, and I really liked the descriptions that made me feel like I was actually in the book. If I were to describe this book in one word, it would be "awe-inspiring." Is that one word? Anyhow, the book creates an unbelievable new world and epic adventures that I want to go back to.
