About the Author

When he s not fighting evil witches and wizards, Brad A. LaMar is an educator who resides in the Indianapolis Metropolitan area. He has taught science to middle school students for 12 years and works with teachers facilitating professional development and school improvement. He is married to Lori, a beautiful and supportive woman, and together they re raising Evan and Paige, two intelligent and wonderful children. The idea for the Celtic Mythos series came from his love of science fiction and fantasy and the underutilized and abundantly rich folklore of the Celtic people. They are so much more than leprechauns! Brad has always loved a good story, and upon researching the mythos of the Celtic Isles he became enthralled in the type of story he could tell. Brad has always enjoyed writing, but in the beginning it was more for examples to share with his students than it was for anything else. It wasn t long before Brad found himself writing every night and submitting his work for publication. Brad finds publishing a tedious and painstaking process, but he says it s worth it. There are so many more stories to tell, and he can t wait to get started.

If you're looking to get a middle school student interested and excited to read, this is the book for you! We have several copies in our library, and the book is literally flying off of the shelf. Due to the wait list, we've decided to purchase a few more copies. A book that gets middle school age students wanting to read? What else is there to say?! Brad LaMar hits a homerun with this exciting tale!

I won this book from Goodreads. A father is needing to do some family research in Ireland and decides to take his two kids along and turn it into a vacation. Soon the children find out that their vacation has turned into an adventure! Brendan and his sister Lizzie find themselves making friends with Dorian, the daughter of the king of leprechauns. When Dorian's father the king of leprechauns is kidnapped by a witch trying to steal magical beings powers, Brendan soon offers to help rescue him. Brendan finds himself smitten by Dorian and a romance blooms soon on their adventure. There are many other fun and magical creatures throughout this book. Brendan also discovers there is much more to himself then he ever knew and the book leaves it to where you know more adventures await in store for these characters. I recommend this book to young middle school aged children. I enjoyed this book and appreciated winning it. I look forward to seeing what else author Brad A. LaMar has in store for us!

If you're looking for a fast paced, engaging read filled with colorful characters and a mystical setting, then The Obsidian Dagger is for you! As a middle school Language Arts teacher, my students are really excited about this book! They enjoy the exciting story and the descriptive language. I know they're eagerly awaiting number two in the series! Writing a book that grabs and engages young people is no small task, well done Brad LaMar!

Have you ever read a book slow, not because it was bad but because you just didn't want it to end? The Obsidian Dagger by Brad LaMar was one of those books to me. It follows Brendan and Lizzie along with their father Oscar as they travel to Ireland to find out about their family history, that is until things get a little crazy and they have to defeat an evil witch. It was a fun, exciting, fast paced adventure with a touch of humor. The banter between Brendan and Lizzie was so true to life, I can picture my kids being the same way when they are their age. Even when the story gets a little "unbelievable" the characters question or point out everything giving this book a "real" feel. Their travel companions Dorian, Rory and Bibby are such love-able character. Morna and Dullaghan were awesome evil. I loved the writing style as the story was told by all the characters not just thru the eyes of one. The only thing I thought the story could use was a bit more description of the world or surroundings just to give that I feel like I was there feeling. Other then that I would recommend this book to any middle grade, ya or adult who like a good modern day fantasy, taking myth and legend and giving it new life. I'm happy to be able to add this book to my favorites list and I can not wait for the next book!!! Happy reading :)

The Obsidian Dagger is YA fantasy novel that I found to be a quick, enjoyable read. The book kept moving along, without having to force situations. While this isn't my favorite book in this genre, it is above average. I would read the other books in this series when they come out.

The story is fine, original. The characters could be more developed, the story is plot driven rather than character driven. Most frustrating, though, was the amateurish editing, or lack thereof. A spellchecker is not an editor, and the grammar checker was clearly turned off or ignored. Clumsy and amateurish, the language kept throwing me out of the story.
