I found Nandia's Copper to be a book of healing and hope, told through a lovely heart warming story with wonderful fun characters. I loved it.
The future seems so familiar in Ned Wolf's fantastic tale. There are villains and dangers to overcome just as time is about to run out on the human race. The delightful difference between this and other books of this genre is that the heroine and hero, Nandia and Bernard, instead of bombs and bluster, use their wit and personal magic to save the day. It's a great read, a real page turner. I look forward to the last 2 books in the trilogy.
Adventure and mystery abound in this 1st book of the Nandia's Trilogy. Lovable characters and a story that makes you not want to put the book down until you find out how they made it through the twists and turns they are faced with along their path. Especially enjoyed the abilities the characters have mastered to communicate with each other and travel to bring about healing to others. Also, how the author portrays each of them makes you want to go along on the adventure and learn these special ways of healing. Can't wait for the next book to come out!
A sweet, gentle and lovely story with many words of wisdom for us all, jointly and as individuals. Given the current state of affairs in this country and the world, this book is is especially poignant today. It’s definitely a special “keeper”. A friend to mark in and place on your shelf for future reference.
What a wonderful story ... could not put it down and have referred back to the story many times. Can't wait for the next book to come out.... Thanks Ned.

…And on another subject, my buddy Ned Wolf will be making a presentation at the Outdoor Club meeting at the Adult Center on Monday, November 21, at 6 p.m.
He’ll be discussing the first of his three-book trilogy, “Nandia’s Copper,” which highlights natural healing in a thought-provoking fantasy adventure of intrigue, deceit and redemption.
Ned recently moved here from Perth, Australia, which features a Mediterranean style climate, pedestrian mall areas and Whiteman Park, a nearly 10,000-acre bushland on the edge of that city. It has wonderful hiking trails, bike paths and its own wildlife park. Be sure to ask him about the protected population of marsupials living there.
The tale told in Ned’s book, “Nandia’s Copper,” is about a pair of healers sent on a mission of mercy to another planet in the city of Geasa. There, a deadly epidemic threatens the very survival of the town. Their adventure is interwoven with the difficulty of persuading the endangered inhabitants to trust in their natural ability to heal themselves. The second book in the trilogy is “Nandia’s Apparition,” which is due to be published in June of 2017.
Ned is also an accomplished musician (soprano saxophone) and has a robust sense of humor. (What do you call a boomerang that doesn’t come back? Answer: a blimey stick!) His presentation promises to be a very interesting evening.

Nandia’s Copper is the first book in the Nandia Trilogy by Ned Wolf, a local to northern Arizona. Wolf works as an author, licensed family counselor and natural healer.
Nandia’s Copper is a self-help book written as a fictional novel. Books are a form of therapy for many. Blending life lessons with fiction is not new, but purposely making it a form of self counseling in a fictional story is a newer tactic Wolf uses in the book.
The novel is filled with intriguing ideas, some are radical and new. The book talks about dowsing — looking inside yourself for answers with your own intuition — musical therapy, dreaming, the power of the mind and similar natural healing techniques.
These ideas provide alternative forms of healing in a world where mental health is highly neglected and offers a few solutions that do not work for everyone. It opens a door to new solutions, and the promise of new answers gives the book its purpose. Including these tactics in a book potentially helps the reader heal privately. It helps the reader decide the next step, if more steps are needed or desired and gives the reader power.
Putting these ideas in a fictional setting where the reader can escape into a fictional world and relate to the character is the true power of this book.
