Overview

"A Fantasy based on reality set in an explorable area of West Wales!"

A series of 5 books, chronicling the epic adventures of the Tylwyth Teg, situated in a beautiful corner of West Wales, Great Britain beginning in the year 1303. The story is set within their ancient 'Triad Kingdom' in a scenic, mountain and coastline area by the Irish Sea.

The tale itself is about the struggles between the forces of light represented by the Efengyl Knights, in their quest to find the Royal Stones of the lost Crown of Golau, and the Dark Lord Pruddydrwgnêr. Only when the Crown is complete can the true king be known and the Royal Race of the Brenhindod be re-established to fight the evil forces of the Dark Lord in his underworld of Annwn Uffern on equal terms ... only then. ...

This first book describes the plight of four young orphans possessing strange powers, brought up in different towers of Trefdraeth Castle. With their loyal companions they meet together under the guidance of Pelydryn, the ancient sorcerer, and Arianwyn, the grim master mariner and explorer from Erin across the sea, to begin the quest for their true identities ... and the Royal Stones of Sorcery ...

"When inquisitive Nomis, a pubescent apprentice herb-lore physician, realises why his parents abandoned him at birth, amid the terrifying threat encroaching on the cosy world of Trefdraeth Castle, he decides it is time to begin a new life with a new master. Little does he suspect that it is his own strange, but growing, powers of sorcery and those of his new found friends, that are attracting the evil necromancers from the darkest regions of the underworld. His new master, a mysterious immortal sorcerer, becomes their protector and guide through many adventures, forcing them all to come to terms with their emerging powers and associated responsibilities that culminate to become the instruments of the ancient prophecies, which will dramatically shape their unsuspecting world."

There is mystery, nobility, integrity, humour, darkness, and violence, as well as interesting beings, well-developed and deep characters with good dialogue. Coupled with themes of the paranormal and obscure laws of nature, it is a very fascinating, page-turning read.

The adventure is made unique in that the area in which their dangerous quest takes place is totally real. The author has used present day marked footpaths and many of the local historical monuments and features of interest. The narrative explores the ecology of the differing environments the questors pass through, that range from high mountain moorland to river and woodland scenery; from river estuary marshlands, sand-dunes and sandy beach to sheer rocky cliffs and finally to the sea. All the action takes place within a walking radius of the author's former castle home overlooking this extraordinary stretch of Welsh coastline!

The books are further made exceptional by the amount of 'living magic,' obscure 'laws of nature' and hitherto 'unexplained phenomena' that is woven into the tale. The author has made available many of the 'secrets' and 'revelations' she has come across in her extraordinary life, which she feels are valuable knowledge for today's discerning person, as we move forward in the Third Millennium.
