WINNIPEG, Manitoba (PRWEB) August 29, 2017
Carolyn Griffin’s young adult fantasy tale, “Alex and the Druids’ Eclipse: A Cornish Tale” (published by Archway Publishing) tells the story of magical portals, mythical creatures, courage and friendship, and of a search for a missing boy.
After witnessing a total solar eclipse high on the Cornish cliffs with his father, Jory, ten-year-old Alex Pitts tumbles from the familiar, safe world he knows into one filled with uncertainty and danger.
Summoned by the ancient druids to the time of Merlin and King Arthur, Alex is sent to recapture a magical cauldron. This journey takes him on a long and perilous quest to a lost island, and into a world of witches, giants, and age-old rituals that evolve into a living nightmare. His only comfort is the enduring love and relentless loyalty of a wolf.
“(My book) deviates from the mediocre with magic sparkling from every page and will appeal not only to its target audience of preteens but to adults the world over, particularly those with interests/ties to Cornwall,” Griffin says. “It offers what many readers of all age groups seek in today’s world, in common with the highly popular video games, escapism into a world where anything is possible.”
