The first winter solstice of the new millennium (the real millennium, not the fake one that had everyone freaking out the year before) fell on my seventeenth birthday. This was also the day I got expelled from Pierre Elliot Trudeau Collegiate and found three strange men living in an igloo in my front yard.
Audrey O'Krane firmly believes the planet Earth is a hopeless ruin; her personal life even more so. She longs to discard both and start over...and then she does. When her batty old aunt disappears from their Saskatoon home, Audrey finds herself hurtling across an array of fantastic overlapping worlds. In order to retrieve her aunt, Audrey teams up with a little princess who literally refuses to grow up, an exiled prince in pursuit of the princess, an alarmingly attractive outlaw mage in pursuit of an assassin, and a shape-changing warrior in pursuit of the mage. Audrey is thrilled to abandon Earth in exchange for a multi-quest adventure, but she's not quite done with it yet. Her new companions' beautiful home world hides a terrible secret, and only Audrey has the ability to prevent it from destroying everything she holds dear. Suddenly getting kicked out of high school doesn't seem like such a big deal...A comic, cosmic, coming of age adventure.
"...a melange of offbeat fantasy, silly fun and suggestions of the improbable. The tone of the writing in Lady Oak Abroad is quirky and sassy, which perfectly suits Audrey's personality...Readers who enjoy fantastic beasts, world hopping and a good mystery will happily tag along on Audrey's outrageous adventure." ~ CM Magazine
