Looking for a fantasy that is full of adventures, fairies, wizards, sprites and more? Let the adventures begin with The Legend of the Taken Ones (Gateskin Chronicles Book 1). This series is for ages 13+ but adults enjoy it too!
I wrote this book several years ago but wasn’t ready to publish it until this year. Fantasy was never my favorite genre to write but once I picked up this book, that lay dormant on a flash drive, I really got into the story and was transported to another time and place. The story came alive and grew into more than I had anticipated because the characters took over the story.
Since I am a pantser (write by the seat of my pants) I never know how the story is going to end until the characters lead the way. There are so many characters in this first epic fantasy story that it is mind boggling to keep straight. I therefore made a list for myself and also for the readers to help keep track of them.
I began work on Book 2 but only did a couple of chapters so far. With the holidays upon us I haven’t had much free time to write. I plan to pick it up again after the holidays. In the meantime please begin the adventure today with Book 1. Grab your copy for Christmas or any occasion for the young adults on your list.
This is Book 1 of a fantasy series that will have six books in all. In this book learn about the three children of King Gateskin and his wife, Queen Solinara. The children have had powers since they were quite young..
Serena was three years old when she learned of her power to move objects with her mind. Her brother, Simon, can fly and their sister, Catalina, can become invisible or blend into her surroundings. They live with their parents in Sovorotskina, the Land of Light.
With these powers comes responsibility. The children must try to use their powers for the common good and responsibly to help others. The three children befriend a Sprite named Spindle who accompanies them on their adventure. Along the way they meet up with their aunt and uncle, their mother’s brother and his wife, Wizard Hotenfaran and Fairy Procelina. The group must travel into the evil land of Parotovina, Land of Darkness, to save King Gateskin, who was kidnapped, and also rescue some of the descendants of their friends and fellow Sovorotskinans who were captured and taken by the Evil Ones. These descendants have been waiting a long time to be free to return to the villages of their ancestors.
The children have many trials and adventures along the way. Will they be able to rescue their father and fellow Sovorotskinans without endangering their own lives? Will the evil King Kaposkaran and his Queen Beregina stop Serena and her siblings from being successful or will they turn Serena and her siblings to their dark ways?
