Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus by Christopher Tozier

A new fantasy novel for young readers by Central Florida author, Christopher Tozier, features a unique eco-system; the Florida scrub.

Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus is book one of a series featuring a distinctive approach to the fantasy genre. Instead of building on the foundation of old world mythologies such as vampires, wizards, or Greek gods, this novel uses the rare Florida scrub for its inspiration. The adventure endured by the characters provides a unique backdrop for developing a North American mythology, particularly for someone relocated to Florida from other parts of the country.

This novel is especially geared to young fantasy and sci-fi fans. But it can also be used in the classroom to introduce concepts such as the Floridan aquifer, the Cenozoic era, and the rare Florida scrub. 

About the author

I am a pediatric nurse practitioner. I always ask my patients if they have read any good books. One fourth grader told me, "He read the best book in his whole life, Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus". I bought it, and could not put it down. My fourth grade boy is now reading it, he loves it. Can't wait for the second book. Hope it is coming soon.
