Ruhna and the Realms

by Meredith Folley

Ruhna is a splendid being of light who accidentally falls from her idyllic realm into grim Snapcatchit Wood. Terrified at first by the “filafees” who rescue her, she slowly befriends them and learns of their own perils: of snatchers who lurk near; of the Great Ones who may return; and of the forces of nature they must constantly confront. Yet, to her aid come a mysterious lantern, a dazzling ice-fellow, and signs that she is part of a far-greater scheme of things. Friendship, loneliness, loss, courage, and community building are only a few of the themes that weave through this epic tale.

Scarlet and the Keepers of Light (Scarlet Hopewell Series Book 1)

by Brandon Charles West

The world building is superb, the writing is not overly simplistic . . . , the pace is never slow and not so fast as to feel rushed. . . . Dwarfs, magical assassins, light-wielding winged people, talking kick-a$$ animals, evil magical princes, and more.” â??Amazon reviewer

Scarlet Hopewell keeps dreaming about a magical world, a world where winged creatures sculpt with light, where dogs talk, and where Scarlet is the guest of honor at an enchanting party in a castle under the roots of a mighty oak tree.

One day her father brings home an abandoned puppy with eerie blue eyes. Dakota is fun and loving and smart. Actually, he’s really smartâ??too smart. And a lot too big. News shows start to take an interest, and the Hopewells’ lives keep getting a little stranger.

As the beginning of the school year approaches, ominous storms have everyone on edge, and Scarlet’s dreams are becoming darker and more vivid. Her magical dream world has another sideâ??a darker side, with no interest in joyous parties.

When the front door is blown off its hinges one night by three beautiful, sinister, silver-voiced men, Dakota leads the Hopewells in their escapeâ??right into the world of Scarlet’s dreams.

Scarlet and the Keepers of Light, the first in a four-book teen/young adult fantasy series, has enough complexity and character to entertain an adult but is the kind of classic tale that could be read to a child. It’s a story about the power of the word, and the adventure of finding the magic within.
