It’s every author’s dream…and nightmare to be showing their creation to the world – who knows if it will all turn into pitchforks and flames like Frankenstein, or gets pulled down into the deepest hell? Or maybe soar like a dragon? Well, I should be totally upfront … are no dragons in this one, but there is still swordfighting, epic battles and some laughs….
Are you ready for adventure?
Sylvalla is more than ready. She’s faced dragons and proven herself a
hero – but her greatest trials are about to begin. Phetero, the king she
accidentally kidnapped, is determined to have vengeance – and the
threat of marriage to Prince Francis looms. Francis may be sweet, have
proven he can draw swords from stones, and be the only prince in all the
Seven Kingdoms who will have her, but Sylvalla is not a willing bride.
as it is, the threat of marriage becomes the least of Sylvalla’s
problems as King Phetero’s grudge turns from war into something more
sinister. The prophecies are dire, but what help can they be against the
ancient horror King Phetero plans to unleash?
Jonathan heard the rush of power as Sylvalla swore to avenge her father.
“The fool!” Capro Goodfellow roared. “The little fool. I cannot leave her for a moment, and already she is wishing things. Worse, vowing things. Will she never learn?”
“Father, you should have said.”
“Ah, yes, I should have, and I did, but I do not think the words were writ large enough or plain enough for her to see them. They did not fill the sky with blackened ink, nor set the ground to trembling–although her words just might. Foolish mortal, does she have any idea? Does she know what she has done?”
If you’re a fan of Terry Pratchett’s Colour of Magic, William Goldman’s The Princess Bride, or Diana Wynne Jones’ The Tough Guide to Fantasyland, you’ll love this new adventure by Sir Julius Vogel Award winning author, A.J. Ponder.
