Facets of Fantasy
Three stories that surround a central truth—the restoration of the natural order, learned about by young people. Resurrection and health are found in the forest outside Jurant’s military academy, where young Sekana has to prove the power of her people to skeptical Don. Meanwhile, Halogen Crossing’s earnest, stubborn Karl prefers to drift off exploring the wilds instead of socializing as everyone thinks he should, and in The Amulet of Renari cheerful, volatile Stuart joins his relatives at their remote mansion, home to beautiful grounds where his cousin Violet would rather wander than attend school. Just beyond the fortress of Vindillam, the dormitories of Jurant, and the town of Farala lie tangled gardens, forests against the slopes of wild mountains, and a graveyard with a mind of its own.
Fantasy, Epic; Short Stories and Anthologies. 238 pages. Death of a loved one and bitterness influence some of the characters.
