MOTLEY
EDUCATION: The Urd Saga, book I
by S. A.
Larsen
Ages: 8-12
Pages: 354
Ellysian Press,
September 10, 2019; Second Edition

"A deftly crafted ... and entertaining
read!"
Midwest Book Reviews - Children's Watch 2017
Motley Junior High: School for the Psychically
and Celestially Gifted Terms of Enrollment
Signed: Ebony Charmed

Ebony should be
excited about entering sixth grade to further develop her skills. And she would
be. If only her lame abilities let her see more than three ghosts.

Struggling to
live up to her gifted family, Ebony is horrified when she is branded a Seeker:
someone who is neither Sensory nor Luminary. To top it off, her Deadly
Creatures and Relics project – transforming a measly stick – seems destined for
failure.

But there are
doors to other worlds where creatures have been watching her. And when the
truth emerges that her project is more than a stick, she knows she must act.
Along with her best friend Fleishman and his pet lizard, Ebony finds herself
wedged between prophecies and quests. Oh, and saving the entire spirit world
from annihilation.

Ebony is not
ready to be a hero. But a dark presence has already stolen more than one local
kid. And this time, her failure is not an option.

About the
Author
S.A. Larsen is
an award-winning author, childhood apraxia of speech advocate, and Maine-iac
ice hockey fan, who has watched more hockey games than she could ever count.
She also has a soft spot for the strange and misunderstood, which might explain
her love for dipping plain chips in ketchup. Her favorite stories push the
boundaries of our world and open harbored emotions to inspire and challenge the
heart. She's the author of Motley Education: The URD Saga Book I (Ellysian
Press, 2019; second edition), a fantasy-adventure for middle grade readers and
Marked Beauty-her debut young adult fantasy-romance (Ellysian Press, 2017).
When she's not chasing her characters around a cemetery or antagonizing them
with the wonders of young love, she lives in the land of lobsters and snowy
winters with her husband and four children. Visit her cyber home at salarsenbooks.com,
find her on Twitter @SA_Larsen and Instagram sa.larsen, or on spookymiddlegrade.com,
where she does most of her spookiness brewing up all sorts of creepy ideas with
a group of #SpookyMG authors. Stop by for a visit . . . if you dare.
