About the Author
Sue Maynard was born and raised in the rural Canadian village of Creemore, ON (yes, like the beer), but currently hangs her hat in the much bigger metropolis of Mordor...er...Toronto. She is a proud Browncoat, a horror geek girl, and an overall sci-fi nerd. In addition to writing, Sue is a total freak for movies, books, video games, comicons, llamas, paperdolls, willow trees, shiny things, corn, the number 3, and her dorky cats. EBON BLACK AND THE SEVEN DRYADS is Sue's second book. Her first novel, CARVING THE LIGHT, was originally written for the 2009 NaNoWriMo challenge, but the idea for Ebon was born more from stating aloud one day that she was feeling grouchy, whiny and weepy – and going from there. ;)

With his loyal servant, Malachite forms a plan to get rid of his stepson once and for all and remain The Richest of Them All. After carrying out his plans to kill Ebon, he goes back to his home to enjoy the rest of his life and put on an act. Meanwhile, Ebon finds himself waking up in strange place surrounded by seven strange women--the Seven Dryads.
Ebon can't remember a thing about what happened to him, but the Dryards--Joc, Weepy, Cranky, Glitzy, Nerdy, Needy and Pam--decide to try to help him recover from his injuries and recover his memory. Extremely gifted and hard-working, they are the true stars of the tale. They do their best to help Ebon remember and get him back home where he can take his place as The Richest of Them All.
Ebon Black and the Seven Dryads is a very fun read with an unexpected happily-ever-after that teaches a really valuable lesson. I would recommend this to any readers who enjoy a good story.
If some of the characters are a little wooden, and the some of the plot a little under-developed, well, frankly, it's a fairy tale. The reader isn't supposed to spend a lot of time worrying about that sort of thing.
It is the kind of book that a family with middle-school-aged kids could read aloud together after dinner (if anyone still does that kind of thing) and would be enjoyable to a variety of age levels, including the adults. It probably would appeal most to younger teen-age girls (and some of the boys) as well.
