Nancy M. Bell about this book: A Step Beyond is Book 2 in the Cornwall Adventures that debuted with Laurel's Quest. This is Gort's story, in the Tree Oghams Gort is the name given to the Ivy plant and is associated with growth and the search for self.
Gort is thrust into a journey that takes him back to a time when the land between the Isles of Scilly and the mainland Cornwall were still above the waves. Here he learns he is stronger than he ever imagined and experiences what it's like to be a warrior and protector rather than the victim of his horrible Uncle Daniel. He is aided in his journey by a wise cracking soulmate who just happens to be war stallion who can communicate telepathically.
The book will appeal to the male segment of the YA demographic. There's lots of action and intrigue mixed with a little humor and a dash of romance. When I finished Laurel's Quest it didn't seem fair to just leave the characters hanging, so I was moved to continue Gort's story. There is a prequel in the works which tells the story of Laurel's Gramma Bella, and another which continues Laurel's story. Aisling's tale will be the fourth book in the series.
