Spellfall. (Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror).
Spellfall is a great book for fans of fantasy that is based in the Earth we know. A clash between two worlds that co-exist on our planet takes place during Halloween. Natalie's father, distraught after the death of her mother, remarried and then retreated to the garage to drink himself senseless. Only when Natalie is kidnapped does he finally realize what a waste he has become. Natalie is kidnapped by Hawk, a member of a society in which magic is commonplace and people live in magical trees called Soultrees. Hawk seeks to destroy the Soultrees using a type of computer virus, so he can gain control of the world, but Merlin (Hawk's son) teaches the trees how to battle the virus.
Fans of Katherine Roberts will want to read this if they have already read the Echorium Sequence. This is a nice introduction to fantasy for those who aren't sure they like the genre. Stacey Conrad, Reading Teacher, Palmyra, MO
