J. B. Cantwell’s young adult novels reflect the feelings she experienced as a pre-teen of galloping wildly bareback across a field. Joy. Pride in her bravery. Power. In one of many five-star reviews of Aster Wood and the Lost Maps of Almara, Joey Yagin praised Cantwell’s work in these terms:

“Fast paced, adventurous and fun. Well written and great characters. A story about an ill boy who becomes a hero. Aster Wood had a heart condition that prevents him from enjoying the simple pleasures in life a kid his age, like playing out doors. He stumbles upon a symbol that takes him away from earth into a strange but earth like planet. There, his adventure begins. He is trying to find his way back, but to do so, he must find a lost wizard. Along the way, he finds a magician, a protective beast, and a princess, whom is very powerful and maybe a kin. The Fold where the adventure takes him gives him great physical ability, so far, speed. He no longer has his heart disease. Nothing can stop him from going back to Earth, he just needs to survive the adventure. This is a great read for everyone.”
