What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

In the novel, the character of Reisil thinks she has finally found the home she'd always dreamed of. Instead, she finds herself the object of suspicion and malice. Nokulas, magical creatures who were once human, are running loose and locals know firsthand the danger they can cause. The ruler has become a Nokulas, locked away so he can do no harm, but causing a leadership power vacuum that his evil son wants to fill. A man from another dimen sion finds Reisil hoping she will heal his wounded land. The coun tries that border on Kodu Riik blockade the nation so that no one can cross into their countries, bringing the plague into their lands. Reisil must locate the hid ing wizards to make them undo the damage they have caused to two realms in different dimen sions. Reisil must also find a way to cure the plague sweeping Kodu Riik before her enemies can kill her. And, one of her enemies may just be her closest friend.
