  • Series
  • Names and descriptions of characters
  • Time period and geographical setting
  • Review citations
  • Story types
  • Brief plot summary
  • Selected other books by the author

Author, title, series, character name, character description, time period, geographic setting and genre/sub-genre indexes are included to facilitate research.
