Inspired by books like the Harry Potter Series, the Chronicles of Narnia, and the works of Brian Froud and Jim Henson, Sheldrake hopes to capture the imaginations of readers of all ages with her Keepers of the Wellsprings series.
It's Midwinter's Eve. His Majesty's Elite has gathered after a long day of cleaning and preparation for Feast Day to cozy up with some cider and listen to tall tales spun by their guild leader, Mya. Follow the knight Azaeli and her best friend Rian the Mage on a journey to collect the Snowberry Blossom, a bloom that holds magic only if picked on
midnight of Midwinter's Eve.
What reviewers are saying about Snowberry Blossom:
"Charming slice of life into the authors fatastical world during the most magical time of the year. Filled with fairies, trolls, druids, and other mythical creatures..."
"...the literary equivalent of having a warm cup of Spiced Apple Tea in front of a fireplace while watching the Neverending Story on a snowy winter's afternoon...the writing is rich and inviting with clear descriptions, surprisingly well-rendered characters (for such a short length) and an engaging little story."
This magical, snowy holiday short story takes place after Call of Sunteri, but can be enjoyed by any reader as a stand-alone story.
