Yves, or the Man Who Wasn't
L.N. Mayer, author
Some want Tell dead, others want to exploit him. Most want him to go away and never return. Can Tell claim what is rightfully his in order to abolish the decree that made him an outcast in the first place? Or will his quest for power be his own undoing? In this action-packed sequel to TELL, OR THE ADVENTURES IN THEMIDDLE, this time it will take more than just another odyssey. It will take resolution, willpower, and mastering the one thing Tell has yet to conquer... his imagination.

"Author L.N. Mayer offers a fresh look at fantasy in the Tell Trilogy with an intelligent and original adventure. The work reminded me of the classic Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear approach to nonsense fiction for young readers... Mayer carries this charm throughout the work, narrating Tell’s quirky story with tongue firmly in cheek but never missing an opportunity to hit home on a big decision or an emotional moment. Overall, I would heartily recommend Yves, or the Man Who Wasn’t for middle grade and young adult readers (and indeed, curious adults) who enjoy surrealist fiction that is grounded in relatable characters and common emotional themes."
