A high fantasy saga in six poems. For adults and young adults. Crafted to be enjoyed by readers who do not normally read poetry, but do enjoy fantasies such as Eragon, The Lord of the Rings, and the sagas of Norse legend.
Each poem builds upon the last to weave a tapestry of magic, dark creatures, and romance, and features an illustrated title page.
THE QUEST FOR ELENA THE FAIR
Three knights and a squire quest through the Vanishing Mists for the hand of Elena the Fey. Each suitor epitomizes a courtly virtue, but which will win the fair maid’s hand?
When evil wizard Scaroth frees himself after a thousand years under the mountain, no one can withstand his power. There is only one power that can stop him. Can it be harnessed in time?
Royal elven blood flows through young Keshana’s body, but magic does not. Or does it? When the goblins besiege Dark Holm, her true powers reveal themselves, but is it too late?
A dragon and its rider quest. They find not what they seek; but what they need.
An ancient evil corrupts the land. The young wizard twins are the world’s only hope but they cannot defeat it alone. Help comes whence it is least expected, but still one twin is destined to die.
GUARDIAN OF WILD MAGIC
The Vanishing Mists disperse; the goblins stream into the light of day. Magic has gone wrong. The last quest begins and must not fail.

About the Author
Gill Shutt was born in the same year as CND, the year that Ronnie Kray was first diagnosed as insane and the year that the designer of Lego died. She has spent a lot of her life being described in relation to someone else... a married woman with three children who answers to Mum more often than not. She was born in London and, even though she left when she was 11 she still thinks of herself as a Londoner. Since then she has lived in Dorset, Devon and Avon, she now lives in South Wales with a mountain outside her window.
She can’t remember a time when she didn’t write but it wasn’t until she became a stay-at-home mum that she started to write seriously. It was a good excuse to avoid doing the housework which is one of her pet hates along with the colour pink and spiders. She managed to get a few poems published in a poetry magazine which fuelled her enthusiasm. She writes by hand in purple ink which is one step away from writing in green crayon on the back of a cereal packet.
Her ambition, apart from publishing books, is to grow old ungracefully surrounded by cats, dogs or rats. At the moment she has some of each and can’t make her mind up which way to go. She hopes that one day someone will turn round and say ‘I liked your book’.
