Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Collun is a gardener, not a fighter, but when his beloved sister, Nessa, disappears, he must do what no one else will: strap on a dagger and pursue her kidnappers.

But Nessa's disappearance is only one of many sinister events that engulf Collun, and soon he is battling an evil larger than he'd ever imagined, an evil that threatens to destroy everything he knows. All hope rests on Collun and his unlikely companions — an enigmatic wizard, an aspiring bard, and a feisty young archer on a mission of her own. Their quest leads them from one seemingly insurmountable danger to another, and ultimately to the lair of a giant white wurme whose slime is acid to the touch — a wurme that Collun must somehow kill if he is to rescue his sister and save his world.

Review:

"Pattou successfully knits together the diverse strands of Collun's personal cause and the history of Eirren, her mythic country....Though the ending here is satisfying, it is loose enough to pique readers' curiosity for the ongoing story." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[A] long, earnest fantasy with a Celtic flavor....Fantasy readers will enjoy this excursion over rich if well-trodden ground." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Collun's adventures draw readers along from one crisis to another, while he steadily grows in knowledge and courage. Fantasy fans will find the tale intriguing and look forward to further adventures in this kingdom." School Library Journal
