Does magic still linger in the mist-shrouded places of Scotland? Ash Wood’s aunt certainly believed it existed in the village of Eldon Vale. Being a midwife to the Faery realm, she dabbled in the Old Ways that the rest of her pragmatic, disbelieving family scorned.
With his aunt’s untimely death, Ash inherits her cottage and becomes the next custodian of a mirror she always kept secret in the attic, a mirror she claimed once belonged to Snow White’s evil stepmother. Ash always suspected it had a personality of its own, one that felt dark and malevolent.
The truth about his aunt soon becomes far darker and more tangled than anything Ash is prepared for. The hidden world of Faery waxes very real and terrifying when Fae creatures invade the cottage. In an attempt to flee, Ash stumbles back into the mirror and finds himself trapped in its shadowy world. Here, his mundane life shifts up a notch as he struggles to make sense of who to trust and who is friend or foe. One wrong decision could be his last.
I have been passionately writing my Bethloria series. There will be seven books in total to make the series complete. The first book was published in 2013 and I have just finished writing the 6th book called Symphony of Star Songs which is due to be released soon. To celebrate this, my precious gift to you is the first book in the series called Firelight of Heaven. It is completely free for you to download and enjoy, see link below. Firelight of Heaven has won the Children's Literary Classics Awards in 2014. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.
A hundred years ago, Morgran began his conquest of Bethloria. Most of the seven kingdoms have already fallen to his Black Empire. While he searches for the last king to gain total control, two orphaned brothers and an Elf girl begin a quest to locate the seven lost crystals of the Morning Star.
