Tales from the Last Seasons in Eorde
(The Ealdspells Book 1)
In the Ages before Europeans crossed the sea to scar its beauty with highways and cities, animals ruled North America. Birds and beasts lived according to the laws of nature, not the strange rhythms of humanity. Kingdoms rose and fell. Heroes fought and perished. Wars were waged and the winds carried magic.
The six tales in this book are set in the final seasons before the animal nations collapsed. Unlikely creatures, big and small, confront a strange upheaval in the natural order and the rise of a new kind of magic. Will they stand and fight for their way of life?
The Sparrow and Warhorse
A prairie sparrow named Mya makes a promise to a dying crow with a magic secret. Keeping her word leads her far from her flock and into the middle of a war between the bison and horsekind.
The Peacekeeper’s War
A wolf pack invades the border territory protected by Nutby, a squirrel with a fat tail, and his best friend Bean, the largest bear in the forest. The wolves are on the hunt for the High King’s assassins but not all is what it seems. Nutby and Bean soon discover something is very wrong in the Woodland Kingdom.
Siege at Sancta
A young beaver named Olam is trapped in Sancta, the great fortress and spiritual home to beaverkind. An army has arrived to lay waste to the stronghold and steal the magic hidden at the bottom of the lake. Before the final wall is breached, Olam must find her courage and protect the magic.
The Witchhorse and Windsong
Ebba is the spoiled son of the Southern Horselord. Taxos is the ruthless forty-first offspring of the Bison Warlord. They come face to face when the bison army invades the Horselands. Neither will ever be the same.
The Last Flight of Crowkind
Juna is a flicker, the lowest rank in the secret Order of Crows. He joins a princess on a mission to reach the eagles in the mountains. The journey across the Woodland Kingdom is long, hawks and owls hunt them day and night, and Juna learns the mission is not what he thinks.
Treason in Tunum
A rabbit named Ned dreams of being a hero and hates the strict rules of his warren. When the magic imprisoned deep underground gives him a gift, he abandons his post and discovers the enemy is planning to attack. Ned returns home with a warning and is arrested for being a spy. Worse still, no one in the warren believes in magic.
Take a journey back to a time of magic and high adventure.
