A diamond tumbles into a chasm. Lightning arcs across a starlit sky. A forgotten Evil wakes.
Bears and wolves race to the mountains in frenzied obedience to the Evil’s command. Transformed into monstrous creatures, they lay siege to the caverns of the High Alps, home of the Sleih and Gryphon.
Ilesse’s destiny is to be a powerful Sleih seer. But when the Evil touches her, she must battle its whispered promises – or see her world destroyed by her own hand. In her village, Gweyr scrubs pots and dreams of her mother’s wistful stories of wise beings and magical flying beasts.
But when the Evil threatens her people, she discovers dreams can hold the key to victory.
Will Ilesse accept Gweyr’s budding magic? Can they be allies in the fight against evil?
About The Author
Cheryl Burman hails from Australia – an Adelaide girl originally before going off to university. She moved to the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, UK via Switzerland and Surrey, in 2008. She’s glad she did! The Forest has inspired writers, including Tolkien, for generations.
It’s still doing so.
Her first novel was Guardians of the Forest, a fantasy trilogy. Theoretically for the nine to early teens market, the books have found a wide fan base, from 9-year-olds to 80-year-olds and all ages in between.
She now writes historical fiction for grown ups. Keepers, her women’s fiction novel (with more than a touch of romance) was released in April 2021.
