Somewhere deep beneath the massive roots of our northern Canadian forest, floating on a pool of liquid gold, lies the continent of Nethermost. For centuries Nethermost's benevolent sovereigns have fostered harmony amongst its wondrously magical citizens, and have encouraged an ideal realm liberally tinged with prosperity ? until four decades ago. Now it is a continent in crisis, with many living in exile, with a climate in daily jeopardy. What remains is a society in disarray, a nation decimated by the greed of one usurper, the disappointed younger brother of Nethermost's rightful heir.
Eighteen year old Cait O?Quinn knows nothing of Nethermost, let alone of its grim plight. Raised in virtual captivity by an emotionally distant aunt at the edge of nowhere Canada, she is self-deprecating and unsure. After being convinced that the fate of Nethermost rests on her uneasy shoulders, Cait's panic is palpable ? ?I?m just a stupid girl of little significance, leading a very dull life on a very small bump in the road. What do you want from me?"

judith dyck, barrie on … "it is an awesome book !!!!! i love all the paintings too. it kept me on the edge of my seat and i really felt invested in the activities of the main characters … the language & vocabulary the author uses in the book are like literary "candy". it's a book that can be enjoyed by lovers of fantasy as well as those who think they have "matured" past the stage of appreciating that type of literature."
elizabeth duern, grimsby on … “(nancy’s) incredible imagination in creating and developing the characters: so true to life and consistent that the reader cares deeply about what happens to them.”
paul mcelhone, edmonton ab … "nancy is a magical storyteller, a true logophile, and an incredibly talented artist. in her most recent book, she has woven her two passions into a beautifully annotated tale of family love, heroism and the triumph of good over evil … the characters are not only interesting and complex; they are believable … with her intimate insight into each character, she has created [twenty] digital portraits and paintings that add 3 dimensional clarity to the story … nethermost regained is a ‘must read’ for readers of all ages. ... Let yourself be submerged in the magical world of Nethermost."
judy duffin, burlington on … Nethermost Regained is a treat to read from beginning to end. Through her beautiful narrative & descriptive writing, Nancy ensures from the outset that the reader will come to know each main character well & will become invested in their lives & in following their journey.
the various settings along the way are outlined so vividly that a reader is easily able to experience them along with the characters. i was in awe as i explored the beautiful & sometimes frightening landscapes. an impressive amount of detailed planning has gone into the creation of the numerous invented objects to progress the storyline. the parallels drawn between some of the concerns in nethermost and some of our current issues on earth cause the reader to stop and take note. there are several surprises as well that keep the reader on the alert. young adult readers and not so young readers will enjoy this fantastical journey."

As an artist, I have had formal training from Sheridan School of Fine Arts, Oakville, ON, and have operated my own fine art business for more than twenty years now. I am also a member of The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators." NANCY GUILD BENDALL writes and paints from her studio at the edge of a small village near Toronto Canada, looking all the while for fairies at the top of the garden.
