Call of Kythshire
by Missy Sheldrake
Magic is a drug. Sorcery is evil. Peace in Azi’s world depends on her courage, her sword, and her quirky new friend: a mischievous fairy named Flit.
16 year-old Azi grew up in the guild hall of His Majesty’s Elite in the peaceful kingdom of Cerion, training hard and dreaming of the day she will finally become a squire and ride out with her parents, both knights, on the King’s Quest. Her dream comes true when she earns the right in her sixteenth year, but her name is left off the quest declaration and her parents and their guild ride off without her.
When tragedy befalls the Elite on their quest, Azi must band with her best friend Rian, a Mage Apprentice, to discover the source of a mysterious curse. They’re joined by an unlikely companion: a colorful fairy named Flit. The fairy clams she is from Kythshire, a mysterious and legendary land of Fae closed off from the outside and cloaked in secrets.
Together, the group seeks to unravel a Sorcerous plot which threatens both the existence of Kythshire, and the peace the kingdom of Cerion holds dear.
Call of Kythshire is a tale of love and friendship, the value of family, and the fight between light and dark. It is a journey of failure and redemption. It is a clean read, free of sex and gratuitous violence, with a strong female lead.
Call of Sunteri
by Missy Sheldrake
Sorcery, Dreamwalking, Necromancy, and mystery fill the plot of Call of Sunteri, the second book of the Keepers of the Wellsprings series by Missy Sheldrake.
Azaeli Hammerfel has been named a knight, and is thrilled to be on her first true quest alongside her parents’ guild. Their journey to see Prince Eron and his expecting wife safely to Lake Kordelya is shrouded with a sense of impending doom that tests the strength of His Majesty’s Elite and the love that Azi and Rian, the Mage, share. When Kythshire’s fairies find themselves a target of the same threat, an unlikely champion presents himself.
Tib Nullen has had a hard life. He’s just twelve years old, but as a field slave in the Sorcerer-run country of Sunteri, he has seen more toil, loss, and cruelty than anyone should be made to endure. When tragedy strikes his family, Tib finds himself flung into a plot much bigger than he.
