An ancient act of treason robbed a kingdom of an heir, and a promise by the great spirit Elethas to restore the throne to a rightful king is still unfulfilled centuries later. The kingdom has now long been divided into tribes who want nothing to do with one another; and the five Elders, entrusted with the task of finding the heir, have all but given up hope… until a long-hidden secret comes to light that just might save the tribes from the darkness ready to unleash itself on the quiet hills of Winderlawk.
Readers are introduced to a new world of heroes and villains in this debut novel by Sarah Stehlik- a twisting, turning story of adventure and courage, betrayal and destiny. Sarah’s previous work includes writing the screenplay for the movie Seasons of Gray, the ancient story of Joseph from Genesis retold through a modern adaptation. Here she does the opposite as a storyteller, weaving a new tale of heroism that feels as though it belongs to an older world.
This first installment in the Tales from Winderlawk series will appeal to older children who enjoy getting caught up in the struggles between good and evil and being taken along on the rise of greatness. It will also be welcomed by parents who are on the everlasting read aloud quest for the next adventure to begin together.
