Boland The Beginning

Length: 260 pages4 hours


Eleven-year-old Frost is miserable when she and her mother move to tiny Port Elwood on the east coast of Canada. But between her new friend Vera, and their teacher Mr. Roland, things soon get very interesting.

"There, wasn’t that Mr. Roland over there, just turning around? She was sure it was, and she was sure he had been sending her that hate-filled look of his. Vera’s words came back to her: “I think you need to meet some people.” If there were people who could explain or maybe even stop those looks, then Frost was all for meeting them."

Vera takes Frost to Boland, a place—a Way of World—that just can’t exist. Nor can the people. Peace-loving people like Lars, Flyer and Dal, with their telepathy—their mind-talking—and, and....

"And Frost knew that what she was seeing wasn’t true, that neither the trees nor the buildings were there. They just couldn’t be."

But the impossible is true, and worse yet, Mr. Roland isn’t just a creepy teacher. He’s Loki, a renegade from Boland, and he and his pal have plans for Boland and Port Elwood. Dark plans.

"Roland and his companion turned slightly towards one another, communicating wordlessly. They were a matched pair of tall, thin, dark men."

Frost gradually realises that her new life is far from boring, and that she, Vera and Dal, are a key part of the struggle to stop the renegades and their plans.

"Loki’s tall form and ominous, nasty voice, sent fear hurtling through all of Frost, from her tingling head to her wobbly knees and cramping toes."

Adventure, excitement, and just being a kid, combine to keep readers turning the pages of Boland, The Beginning.
