Editorial Review:

In Traitor in the Realm, by Patricia J. Boyle, fifteen-year-old Kallan, the daughter of a paleontologist, discovers a pre-historic-looking toothed bird that should have died out millions of years ago. Grandpa’s property has always seemed magical to Kallan and her foster brother, but when they enter an undiscovered tunnel, they soon find themselves in a real magical world, full of curious creatures. If you’re a fan of fantasy, you’ll love Boyle’s exciting story, filled with vivid details and memorable characters. Highly recommended.
