About the Author
I am Galadriel Pittman, a mother of two, wife to a supportive amazing husband, daughter, sister, friend, worship singer, school cafe manager…the list goes on. I am blessed with many roles to fill. And now, finally, author. Some of my earliest memories are of my parents reading to me–Chronicles of Narnia, Xanth series, Lord of the Rings…but they never read them fast enough for my liking. So, I learned to read. As a voracious reader from the age of three, my goal as a child was to read every book in the world! Sadly, reality dictated that there were more books than what my town library held, and new ones entered all the time! Perhaps taking a sideways step in that dream to become one who created those new entries is not surprising. As a child I enjoyed telling my younger siblings stories, and as a teen, I created my world with a friend. Over the years, I added to that tale. Recently, I decided I wanted to find out what happens next— so here we go!

This being a fantasy Genre I wasn’t sure how I would like it but it was very interesting. I enjoyed the adventures of Raven and Tara. I loved how she could play the harp and the had a name. She was an entertainer with her harp and Raven did juggling. Loved their act together they had for a short time in the book. There is some other very interesting characters also.
My favorite character was Taikon which was Raven’s horse. I loved how he talked and gave his own opinion a lot of times. Loved where he stated that he heard a lot in the stables. Also the book has pictures of the characters that were drawn out that was very impressive.
The only thing I didn’t like about the is I have to wait for book two to see what happens next.
I received an complementary copy of the book from the author and Celebrate Lit. I was not required to write an positive review. This is my own opinion.
Guest Post from Galadriel
Maps. I’ve always loved them. Like Bilbo Baggins, I would pour over them, plotting where I had been, where I wanted to go. I spent hours doodling them. There’s something calming about making squiggly lines. So when it came to creating a world, the map had to be one of the first features for me to make.
Fast forward a couple of decades to when I decided to get serious about finishing my story. I pulled out my old hand drawn in pencil map and thought, “This needs an upgrade.” Enter my amazing husband. He took my original map and drew it on the computer, adding wonderful details like trees and mountains. The final touch was the nod of homage to C.S. Lewis: The known world of Morovia prepared for his majesty by the adventurers Clark, Shawn, and Lewis.
And now I offer this portal to my world as part of the giveaway! An 11”x17” color copy of the map inspired the theme for the gift basket giveaway.
