Skye Thistle is a normal, awkward fourteen-year-old girl dragged through a long-forgotten spyglass to the mysterious world of Ithilmir. There she’s forced to readdress old prejudices whilst joining forces with her newfound Goblin friends as they take on the evil rising in the south.
Swords, sorcery and lots of adventure await as she learns to trust not only her new friends but herself in a quest to return home.
“The Shadowlands lie to the west of Ithilmir, a desolate valley ringed by towering mountains. Nothing living remains and even though it was once lush and fertile it is now nothing more than a scar etched onto the landscape. There, the souls of those who have died wander freely for eternity. It is said that a constant mist swirls down from the peaks and covers the dead in a silver shroud. The Shadowlands are very real but they are not somewhere that the living should ever tread. Those that have dared to venture there have returned changed or not at all.”
Back home on Earth, talking to people at school was hard enough for Skye Thistle. Catapulted to a strange world and entrusted with saving it from dark magic, suddenly, she misses her old problems.
A violent darkness is growing in the south and the Goblins are at war. Does an ancient prophecy hold the answer to Skye returning home? Or will she be trapped forever?
With a powerful queen threatening to shroud everything in evil, a teenage girl from Earth may be the only thing to save an entire world.
The war isn’t over
Do not make the same mistakes I did…
Those were the words her mother had left when Skye Thistle returned home to Earth from her adventures on the distant world of Ithilmir. If only it were that simple.
Betrayal, rebellion and war have once again gripped Ithilmir and the source of dark magic has been found. In desperation, the armies of the world are grappling for power – light or dark.
In Skye Thistle’s absence, an army of the dead has risen and a golden empire from across the sea is growing in power. Once again, she is called upon to fight. This time, she’s not alone. When the life of her best friend is weighed against that of the world, will Skye choose new friends or old?Spread the love...
