This book is a “field guide” to Fantasy Nations based on classroom lessons, research, and personal experience from encounters of the fantastical kind. How'd I get personal experience? Let me explain. Ancient prophecies foretold Destineers would save the worlds. Yes worlds with an “s”. There’s a lot; you just have to know how to find them. We are Destineers. A new headmaster arrived at our school and life suddenly got very interesting. He brought some new professors and a whole new curriculum with him. I'm not so sure the school board knows about these changes...but school is a LOT more fun since they arrived. Who are the Destineers? There’s Ryan – he’s 16 and the leader of the group; Sean, his roommate (also 16) who has a great sense of humor (but he loves to play practical jokes so watch out!), and Ryan’s little brother Brady (he’s 9). Brady is awesome. He has this amazing energy and really has a knack with languages.... More > I’m Kylie, I’m 15 and the writer of our group.< Less

Nov 14, 2009This book is a great find for anyone who wishes to discover what beings exist within the Nations of Fantasy. This wonderful field guide introduces some amazing fantasy creatures that I've not come across before! The introduction starts off warm and friendly-makes you want to spend more time with Kylie O'Connor and attend Greenbrier Academy!
Oct 15, 2009"A Great Guide to Creatures of the Fantasy World" This review was on Amazon.com By BEVERLY STOWE McCLURE "Author" - See all my reviews (on Amazon) When William Derrnz becomes the new headmaster at Greenbrier Academy, he brings new professors and a new curriculum with him, and school suddenly becomes a lot more interesting. Kylie O'Conner, one of the students, introduces the reader to her friends and classmates, Ryan, Sean, and Brady, and tells about this unusual school they attend. The new curriculum is known as a "directed study" program, and one of the classes is Interactive History taught by Professor Fritz Fitzwilly. He invented a machine known as an incarnation chamber that lets you travel to any world in any time period. Also, there's Cosmic Kingdom, a video game with knights and dragons in a Camelot kind of setting. Kylie and her friends even traveled to the realm of the Neatherscape, a beautiful realm where elves, globins, and centaurs live, but... More > where some kind of trouble is brewing. Wow! Who wouldn't enjoy classes like this? The odd thing is Kylie and her friends are the only students in the program. The Destineers' Journal of Fantasy Nations, is a field guide to the Nations of Fantasy, the lands that were forced from our world into a realm of their on when the "Old Ways" that once were predominant in human culture disappeared. Kylie records information she learns from her lessons and from personal observation of what she encounters in the magical lands of fantasy. Come along with Kylie and her friends and take a look at a few of her recordings. They are listed alphabetically to make it easy to find them. She starts with the Afanc, monstrous lake dwelling creatures of Wales that prey on anyone foolish enough to swim in the water. From the description Kylie gives, razor sharp teeth and the strength of ten warriors, they aren't someone or something you'd want to meet on a dark night. From Alchemist to Banshee, Bodach to dragon, and Yeti to Zombie, the authors give us a glimpse, sometimes with humor, sometimes with chills, of the inhabitants of the Nations of Fantasy. I recommend this guide for writers, readers, and everyone who loves fantasy novels and movies. Even those who aren't really into magical worlds will enjoy reading about the Dullahans, Mooncalves, and Thunderbirds. No, I'm not telling you what they are, but once you read the book you'll be happy you did.< Less
