Here There Be Dragons by James A. Owen

This little Fantasy tale involves historical characters that avid Fantasy readers will recognize quite early. WWI is being fought, and certain Oxford fellows find themselves caught up on a magical quest of epic proportions when the Imaginarium Geographica is passed on to an undergraduate by a deceased professor. Owen delivers an imaginative tale full of danger, wonder, and quite a few inside puns. While readers new to the Fantasy Genre might not catch some of the puns, the story is still sure to delight with its sense of adventure.

Best to read while listening to: Sarah Brightman, Enya, Epica, Loreena McKennit, Nightwish, and of course the Lord of the Rings Trilogy soundtracks.

James -

Awesome! I heard a rumor that a movie based on the book might be out, too. Or was that just a rumor?
