Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

Definitely, Middle Earth and Narnia, but only if like Dante with Virgil, Tolkien and Lewis could be my guides! :)

Sounds like a good time would be had by all!

I'm reading a book by Alastair Reynolds. I'm tempted to take a trip through his Revelation Space universe, but ultimately I would probably be too chicken. It's a dangerous place. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revelation_Space_universe

What a great question! I know that throughout my childhood, whenever my parents would shout of me to go to school, I'd wish I could avoid going by entering my wardrobe and finding Narnia, so for that reason I'd have to say, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe ;D

Robert Erwin Howard's HYBORIA, with sword in hand as a sullen eyed thief, reaver and slayer to tread the jewelled kingdoms under sandalled feet.

Now we're talking.   ;D

Narnia is one of my favorite journeys as well. Would loved to have sailed on the Dawn Treader and danced at Caer Paravel!

Younger me (a real nerd) would have said Xanth.

Older me (still a nerd) would say the OASIS from Ready Player One.

Has anyone played "Journey" (PS 3/4, thatgamecompany)? Very cool, very zen landscape designed to replicate the journey of a "life," as it were, that I wouldn't mind if it weren't for the cycle of never-ending rebirths.

Definitely onboard with Chronicles of Amber, Harry Potter, Wrinkle in Time, and of course Middle Earth...I was going to say Game of Thrones before realizing I wouldn't last a second there...being a dinosaur kid, I'd have to say I've always had a fond spot for Dinotopia - that illustrated book was quite the imaginary feat!
