CARDIGAN, Wales (PRWEB) November 28, 2016
Author Sandra Rose Wild has always taken a delight in myth, magic and fantasy. In her debut novel, “Forgotten Magic” (published by Xlibris UK), she captivates readers with a fantastical story of how good overcomes evil and of friendship and bravery in the face of great danger. Readers will find out how two teenagers, with the aid of magic and the creatures who helped them, overcome their fears and embark on a hazardous journey into the unknown.
A deadly enemy from beyond the gates of Nowhere is breaking through the formidable spells that bind it. The key to its destruction lies buried deep within the mind of James Cadwallader, the son of a human family, especially chosen to be entrusted with the secret wisdom of their ancestors. The threat is growing ever stronger. His father is ill, his little sister in danger as the menace creeps ever closer. Their last remaining hope is to unleash the forgotten magic James holds, a magic both powerful and wild, only to be used in a time of dire need. Can James succeed in this perilous quest?
“We live in a world with the constant threat of violence and war. A world where young people often feel they are not valued and are of no worth. As fantasy can express truths regarding the real world, the book tells of how, with the intervention of magic, the impossible becomes possible allowing danger to be overcome resulting in a positive outcome, reflecting the reality of conflict and resolution,” Wild says.
The story is focused on a journey of discovery. The magical creatures are a depiction of the help and support which can encourage people of all ages to believe in themselves, find their strengths as they deal with adversity, and allow them to put their trust in others.
