    Why I read this The novel looked intriguing and I m all for books that travel to different worlds.Plot A trio of kids stumble upon a staircase in the underground caverns of their house and discover that it leads to a whole other world This book contained the usual bad guys wants X object, main character has X object, and then a struggle adventure ensues I like the mix of geology with magic The explained and unexplainable all in one book Actually, the plot was fun, but my only complaint was Why I read this The novel looked intriguing and I m all for books that travel to different worlds.Plot A trio of kids stumble upon a staircase in the underground caverns of their house and discover that it leads to a whole other world This book contained the usual bad guys wants X object, main character has X object, and then a struggle adventure ensues I like the mix of geology with magic The explained and unexplainable all in one book Actually, the plot was fun, but my only complaint was that I really wanteddescription,depth into this other world.Characters Madison is a logical girl, but does not blanch at the magical nature of the world she discovers I felt like the author really wrote Madison s character well and could see who she really was I have to admit, her little brother, Mica, annoyed me quite a bit, but little brothers are often bothersome The author really had the lingo down for annoying little brother speak.The bad guy was not that scary and his minions werecomical than frightening It reminded me of the two minion to Hades in the Disney movie Hercules.Relatability Definitely a plot often seen in fantasy and one the reader can easily follower Anyone with an annoying younger sibling can definitely relate to this book as well.Cover Commentary Kind of boring, to be honest

Rock Quarry road and elated that they don t have to endure for three months teasing about the Terrence Mystery 241 Rock Quarry road seems simple from the outside, even plain and boring but what lies within promises Madison, Mica and her best friend Onyx a fun filled summer of discovery and mystery Grandpa and his pet gopher Digby live in this extra ordinary home deep underground quite nicely, as it fits the geological background of Grandpa Once the owner of a quarry, Grandpa suddenly shut down the quarry one day claiming it was flooding and was of nouse With no other explanation, this caused quite a stir within the community and legend was born Stories of the Terrance Mystery, a mystery that people of all ages loved to discuss and even torment the younger Terrance s about, passed from family to family with none the wiser as to what had actually happened But the teasing and heckling is all put behind Madison and Mica as they begin three months of bliss with their Grandpa Rocky.As the two reach their grandfathers attic haven, they beg him to tellstories of the magical world below He complies and fills their minds and dreams with stories of a fantastic, mystical place that few have seen As the afternoon wears on, Digby seems to be trying to tell them something, but they can t decipher his message so his odd behavior is put behind them as the suggestion is made to enter the Grand Cavern, a suggestion that is eagerly jumped upon by all present.Onyx and Madison s parents have gone on a geological dig for the summer and thus have left the children with Grandpa Rocky for safekeeping The kids are fine with this decision as they know they have a summer full of geological fun ahead of them, and as Madison hopes, a discovery or two along the way.Little do they know, that one of 11 year old, Madison s worst tormentors Jacin has followed them into their fantastic underground home As Jacin finally emerges, he finds that he is alone and he begins to search the room with amazing finds along the way He also discovers upon searching Grandfather Rocky s room finds himself so fascinated with a crystal that he finds, that he pockets it, thinking that no one will ever

quickly corrects in her somewhat proud gopher personality They soon find themselves in a magical place that cannot be described but in the words of the author and the imagination of the reader To fully appreciate all they see and experience is left to the individual reader What happens next to the visitors of Elea can only be read to fully appreciate and enjoy The author has woven within this marvelous book, geology and mystical events as well as friendship and devotion that is rarely seen in such a book A wonderfully exciting book written by S R R Colvin, is from start to finish exciting and a book that draws the reader into the story wonderfully Though The Krybosian Stairpath was originally written for the young Middle school set, I see it appealing to many ages In fact, if truth is to be known, I as a mother of two boys, found it so mesmerizing and interesting that I read by flashlight far into the early morning hours, not wanting to put The Krybosian Stairpath down as I searched with the characters for an end to the story But as we all know, the best books are read undercover of darkness and sheets with a flashlight And I can attest, that though I am past the age where I read under the sheets so my parents won t catch me, this one brought me back to an age where the most important thing in my life was a book that was so mesmerizing that I could not bear to put it down Read it for yourselves.and share it with the whole family It is a book unlike any other and a book to be kept for the next generation to enjoy anew, as it is truly magical indeed

    Of course I love this book I m its mother.I spent ten years writing and re tooling this story not entirely by choice It s been an epic journey of writing and revising since I originally wrote The Krybosian Stairpath pre 2000 I wrote, revised and refined the characters and plot over those many years.Each time a Harry Potter novel came out I had to go back and rework part of my story to remove similarities One time the Potter book wasn t even out and I had to revise As I stood in the check Of course I love this book I m its mother.I spent ten years writing and re tooling this story not entirely by choice It s been an epic journey of writing and revising since I originally wrote The Krybosian Stairpath pre 2000 I wrote, revised and refined the characters and plot over those many years.Each time a Harry Potter novel came out I had to go back and rework part of my story to remove similarities One time the Potter book wasn t even out and I had to revise As I stood in the check out line in Wal Mart, I saw a pad of pre order slips for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix My stomach churned and my face went hot The characters in my story had to work to achieve an order and now I had to eliminate it It was bad enough that I had to remove the school setting in the Step Castle But I figured if I can think of something and another writer can think of it too, then it must be ordinary So, I pressed on I did finally revolt against this steady barrage when someone told me that one of the Potter books featured three challenges that the characters had to survive Naturally my characters were faced with three challenges But, I decided to leave them intact because they represented one of the few remaining original story ideas I regret that after years of constant changes, my story in no way resembles its original structure, yet I feel it remains an interesting story for young children.I have since learned if you write anything that has not been written about before, then you are operating outside of the realm of human experience So, I m not nearly as concerned with similarities now I have grown as a writer.I paid hundreds of dollars to a children s author to edit my manuscript I thought this had been money well spent I also paid hundreds of dollars to a Doubleday adult fiction author to edit the same manuscript with a different perspective I also thought this had been money well spent I was convinced that I was too close to the project to see it objectively and needed unbiased professional opinions Over the years I joined writer s groups and organizations, subscribed to publications, attended writing workshops and seminars, and amassed a library of Writer s Digest books, Writer s Market, and every how to book I could absorb on topics ranging from character development to composing winning query letters because I convinced myself that it all would be money well spent.I have always been able to justify the expense, the time, and all of the sacrifices made so the characters in my head could have their day But with 51 Dear Author form letter rejections from agents and publishers, all but two based solely on my query, I realize that the manuscript truly is trivial in the equation if no one ever gets to read it I ve had that manuscript professionally edited twice and critiqued by other writers frequently but still get rejected on the query, with no suggestions from the rejecters on what I could possibly do to fix my query letter.This epic journey ended when I made the decision to self publish this first in the series of geology themed adventures.My only regret I wish I had titled the series Maddy s World or even Digby s World, after the gas stricken, wise cracking gopher from the interior world of Krybos.SRR Colvin
