Nereid is Part Two of the "Tess Trilogy" of the Sourwood Mountain Series by Jenni Lorraine and should only be read after reading the Best-Selling first installment, "Tailypo."


The weeks that have followed since the discovery of young Ruby Milton's body in Pichol Creek have been a whirlwind of strange activity and

mounting suspicions in the small town of Adelaide, Virginia, with eleven-year-old Tessie and friends caught in the center.


Since she was old enough to read, she's done nothing but absorb information about monster lore from across the globe-becoming convinced that folk monsters live in abundance in the woods surrounding her tiny home town.


It was a monster-hunting excursion that led the group of young explorers to find the skeletal remains of Ruby, a former girlfriend of Tessie's uncle Joel, laid to waste in Pichol Creek after Tessie's trusted dog, Job, retrieved the skull.


Now, a dark shadow has been cast over the town of Adelaide as Sheriff Alan Cline races against time to solve the case,convinced it's somehow linked to a series of disappearances, shady characters, and secrets that have long been rotting away at the heart of the local community.


In a case where nothing appears as it seems, only one thing can be known for certain:


The true beasts of Adelaide are about to be revealed.
