The Summer Solstice approaches. Are you worried where the Rune Stone is? You should be ...

“Suffice it to say they performed a magical ceremony involving a sacrifice,” Agnes said, making exaggerated eye contact with each of the three oldest kids. “But something went horribly wrong, as things tend to do when you go against the laws of nature, and they became .... well, they became parasites, really. Their very lives were dependent upon existing off others. “Literally,” the crow stressed, “existing off others.

“Because of the magic they’d dallied with, they took on some of the traits of the Dwarves, and were forced to seek refuge in the earth. No longer could they walk in the sunlight without pain ... death, even. But they weren’t truly earth dwellers either; so, they became night creatures, able to be above ground after sunset, but seeking the solace of the earth during the day.”

The Black Ledge Series

  The secrets of the Red Paint People have haunted Maine for 7000 years. From the vast fjords of Norway to the shores of New England, ancient standing stones mark a trail of betrayal, greed, and murder.

Book II

He’d bonded with the child. It was foretold, and so it would be.

Black Ledge is inhabited again, but not everyone in the Realm is pleased. As the Driscolls settle into their new home they meet magical Beings, discover secrets, and exasperate the Elven Guard. They’re having a great time. 

Charm turns to alarm when they meet Doris, the Acadian Water Witch, who's removed the Alabaster Chalice from its watery grave. The Noctivagi, drawn by the artifact's Water Magyk, seek the Chalice for their own nefarious purpose, and mayhem ensues.

Eleanor, Rob, Jack, and Flora fight time and tide to return the Alabaster Chalice to the Undine Prince before the darkness steals it.
