Posts Tagged ‘ Well Wishes ’
Back in 2006, when I wrote my young adult book “Well Wishes” – a sequel to my first novel, “Winter’s Rite” – I included Bunyips in the story. They’re only in the book briefly – which is good, because those Bunyips taught me a very valuable lesson: never create characters that speak entirely in rhyme! Yet, those little guys have been very popular among my fans, and readers. However, they’re child-friendly fantasy Bunyips. Check out this article for some information about, and encounters that have been reported, regarding the Bunyips of myth and legend.
When the Princess of the Elven kingdom is taken by a Well Spirit, the Elven king enlists the aid of Avari, the heroic Water Nix who was instrumental in the fall of Veemox the Ur’hunglav only months before. After his attempt to free the Princess results in Fyrnn being taken by the same Spirit, along with the Princess’s best friend, Avari is off on an ocean voyage to a distant, near-mythical island with a reputation from which it earned its name – the Island of Death. Once there, he must confront the terrible creatures which haunt the island in order to bargain with the most powerful Well Spirit of them all to gain the freedom of the captive Elf women. But time is running out for the enslaved Elves. Will Avari make it in time?
“This is a story of true heroism and devotion to others.”
“You can’t help but love this little Nix who doesn’t back down from danger when he sees someone in trouble.”
“Avari and Fyrnn have once again joined forces to save others. They were successful once, but this is a totally different enemy.”
“Along the way they meet many creatures, Water Faeries, Water Guardians, Bunyips and Dragons. Some are evil, and some are helpful and kind.”
