Unfortunately for A.M. Dellamonica, here at EBR we don’t have an ecofantasy label. So if you search for more ecofantasy on the site you may have trouble sorting it from all the other fantasy out there. By labeling it ecofantasy Dellamonic is screaming to you her political leanings, but fortunately they don’t get in the way of telling a fascinating story.

BLUE MAGIC (Amazon) is the second book in a duet. I didn’t have trouble getting into the story despite not having read book one, INDIGO SPRINGS (Amazon).
