Publisher's summary

The McGunnegals are all strange, and it has been that way for generations. They are too strong, or too fast, or too smart, and odd things happen when they are around. The neighbors say they are witches or devils, or have been snatched by changelings. Mothers hold their children close when they walk by, fearing they might catch the McGunnegal strangeness.

But when a doorway to the world of the Others is found in their great grandfather's potato cellar, two of the children fall through, and find themselves in a land where all of their strangeness will be needed to rescue its people from the dark things that have enslaved it.

There they also discover why they are so different, and also what it means to be truly human.

The Strange Land Trilogy is a compilation of the first three books in The McGunnegal Chronicles series, including Into a Strange Land, Taming the Goblin, and The Witch and the Waking Tree.

Imaginative “page turner”!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book series. While there have been many books with witches, dwarfs, fairies and others and battles of good and evil, the author makes you think about the grey areas of good and evil in a refreshing way. At times the story is a bit expansive in scope with the author taking on multiple story lines, but the reader is able to follow the narrative looking forward to what is next. It is well written with the right amount of detailed description to let your imagination guide you through the characters and scenes.

I had the opportunity to meet the author and he told me the story line emerged from bed time stories he told his children. It certainly reads like that kind of story full of imagination set in a difficult time in Ireland. I’d recommend you give this listen.
