The Amber Ring (A Novella)

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

At the age of ten, Sofia Corona saved the Fairwoods from the malevolent grasp of the Cedar Witch and her goblin army.

Two years later, she drowned unceremoniously in the lake behind her Oregon home.

In the months following the Heroine’s death, when the Fairwoods face a resurgence of goblin attacks, they are forced to turn to Sofia’s cynical twin sister, Maya, for help. Although she wants nothing more to do with her sister’s fanciful adventures, Maya comes to realize that this one last favor could give her the closure she needs to put Sofia’s memory to rest and move on with her life.

With her twin’s magic ring and faithful gryphon companion, Maya embarks on a reluctant journey of whimsical antics and unwitting self-discovery in this stark but humorous fairy tale.

An Entertaining Fairy Tale with Teeth

The Amber Ring reminds me of the best sort of classic fairy tales: it's an amusing, fast read, but beneath the whimsy lurks sharp teeth with a bite. Walton juxtaposes a humorous and goofy magical world where bears govern towns and trolls wear hats with harsh realities including gritty fights with goblins and the challenges of coping with a deceased sister. This juxtaposition results in a unique spin on many classic fantasy tropes, granting the reader plenty of laughs and sly winks while building to a powerful, thought-provoking conclusion.

Not too long nor too short, this novella is a fun, smart read for teens and adults who enjoy their humor and fantasy with an added punch.
