The Fearless Travelers' Guide to Wicked Places

Twelve-year-old Nell Perkins knows there is magic at work that she can’t yet understand. Her mother has been taken by witches and turned into a bird. Nell must journey to get her mother back, even if it takes her deep into the Wicked Places — the frightening realm where Nightmares resides. There she must break the spell and stop the witches from turning our world into a living nightmare.

ForeWord Reviews - Rebecca Foster

"...a triumph of world building that combines familiar fantasy elements in surprising ways. . . .[Begler] successfully balances the cozy anthropomorphism of a Narnia-type land with the borderline horror of Neil Gaiman or Stephen King. The vividness of this imaginary world would undoubtedly lend itself well to a big-screen adaptation." - ForeWord Reviews

Booklist - Becca Worthington

"STARRED REVIEW! This magical book is as dark as a Tim Burton film...but there is great power (and some successful humor) in creating a world so entirely original. . . . this is a gripping, surreal, and utterly delightful adventure that pairs the unsettling, off-kilter wonkiness of Neil Gaiman and Roald Dahl with the zinging imagination of L. Frank Baum." - Booklist

Kirkus Reviews

"STARRED REVIEW! Throughout the relentlessly paced, endlessly twisting plot, remarkable Nell emerges a "fearless traveler" in her own right. . . .A wildly imaginative, richly textured, and complex fantasy." - Kirkus Reviews

School Library Connection - Emily Skrezec, East Brook & West Brook Middle Schools, Paramu, NJ

"Readers won’t be able to put down this tale of self-confidence, finding strength when scared, and overcoming your own limitations. A fast-paced, vivid, and detailed read that evokes the aesthetics of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman, this story will have readers wanting more. A perfect addition to any fantasy lover’s collection." - School Library Connection
