Synopsis: PRAISE FOR OPAL OF THE OZARKS

A dazzling debut with magical places, creatures and gemstones, plus a compelling heroine young readers will love. — Kirkus Reviews

Richly imagined and painstakingly described, the story world in Opal Summerfield and the Battle of Fallmoon Gap is amazing! — IndieWritingBlog

Opal Summerfield, the heroine of Jones’ debut fantasy series, lives an ordinary life in the Ozarks with her adoptive parents. But on her 16th birthday, she receives a mysterious gift from the pet hawk of a mystic—a beautiful opal necklace. What she doesn’t know is that the opal necklace, which belonged to her dead mother, has great magic and will lead her to discover whom she really is. It is also coveted by, among others, the wicked Big Maggie, a disguise of Amina the Conjurer, who will stop at nothing to possess it.

When hooded men kill Opal’s family, she flees deep into the wilderness, crossing a threshold into another world. An undercurrent of racial tension is at work in Jones’ novel: Opal is a blue-eyed African-American girl, “a spectacle among both the white folks and the black folks of the town.” With great attention to worldbuilding, Jones creates two very different realms, making for the interesting contrast between Grigg’s Landing in the Ozarks, where there’s a distinction between the white and black sides of town, and the magical land called the Veil. The Veil is a place full of magical creatures and places, such as flaming horses and Fallmoon Gap, a beautiful city hidden in the mountains. In the wilderness, Opal is helped by a boy named Luka, a member of the Wardens, who protect the mountains and Fallmoon Gap.

There’s also the mysterious Ranger, who’s tasked with saving her. Yet Opal is no girly girl or damsel in distress. When she’s attacked by wereboars, she fights them off with the help of her magical necklace. She’s tough, brave and smart—an appealing heroine for young readers, especially girls. The narrative...finds its stride when Opal makes it to Fallmoon Gap, where she learns how to control the magic of her opal necklace. Taking classes such as Forensic Magic & Engineering Enchantments and Magical Armaments, Opal trains to be a Warden. In the climactic, action-packed final act, Opal learns terrible truths about Amina, the Ranger and herself as she battles to protect the Helixflow, the source of all magic.

— Kirkus Reviews

With cover art and illustrations from emerging artist, Kitikhun Vongsayan, Opal Summerfield and The Battle of Fallmoon Gap, is the first installment of the Opal of the Ozarks series and a non-stop adventure full of familiar fantasy characters re-imagined in a unique American mythology-the fading legends of the Ozark Mountains.

About the Author: Mark Caldwell Jones is a writer living in Los Angeles. He is currently working on the next book in the Opal of the Ozarks fantasy series and his first television series. He grew up in Arkansas and spent his summers fishing for rainbow trout in the Ozark Mountains with his family and friends. Those experiences inspired his latest novel Opal Summerfield and The Battle of Fallmoon Gap, which Kirkus Reviews called, "A dazzling debut with magical places, creatures and gemstones, plus a compelling heroine young readers will love."

Book Description Founders Park Media, Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Kitikhun Vongsayan (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book. On one of the happiest days of her life, Opal Summerfield is ambushed by her secret history and inherits an enchanted necklace, magically super-charged by her adolescent emotions. Immediately, the strange gift attracts the attention of an evil conjurer named Amina and the masked vigilantes called the Hoods. After the Hoods attack her family, Opal flees her Ozark Mountain home and escapes into a parallel world called the Veil. Here she meets deadly wereboars, horses that burst into flame, mechanical steamwork fireflies, and the Wardens who guard the source of all magic-a strange cave formation called the Helixflow-hidden beneath the city of Fallmoon Gap. Opal soon joins the Wardens in their many quests: managing the destructive energy of the Veil that flows through the land like a wild river, wrangling dangerous creatures mutated by the Veil s magic, and hunting criminal magic-users. All the while, Opal tries to master the Agama Stone and its dangerous powers, in spite of being distracted by a budding romance and rumors that her father, long assumed dead, may be one of the worst criminals ever, and an ally to Amina who is trying to destroy Fallmoon Gap and everyone that Opal loves. With cover art and illustrations from emerging artist, Kitikhun Vongsayan, Opal Summerfield and The Battle of Fallmoon Gap, is the first installment of the Opal of the Ozarks series and a non-stop adventure full of familiar fantasy characters re-imagined in a unique American mythology-the fading lore and legends of the Ozark Mountains.
