A telepathic dog. An ancient prophecy. Two devious faeries.
14 yr old Abby Fletcher must unravel their connection when she is thrown into a world of unknowns after receiving a mysterious message from a frightening beast: The Red King must set me free. Determined to discover the meaning of this puzzling phrase, Abby sets off to explore a nearby Scottish mountainside in search of clues. What Abby doesn’t realize, however, is that it’s not a matter of where she will find her answers but when. Whisked back to the early 14th century, Abby must find the courage to solve the mystery of the Red King and save not only herself but a group of powerless captives wrapped up in a faerie plot.
A kidnapped father. An ancient tome. A mystical gem.
When 14-yr old Abby Fletcher returns home to present day Scotland with the help of her magical dog, Finlay, she receives a disturbing message: the Book of Shay in exchange for the life of her father. Pressed for time, Abby and the young Scotsman, Rory, set off in search of the mysterious book. In a whirlwind adventure filled with time travel, frightful adversaries and enchanted beings, their path leads to a timeworn stone circle. There, with Berry Brae’s secret revealed, Abby must make a life-changing decision in this second installment of the Red King Trilogy.
Darkness. One that seeps into hidden crevices, enveloping all it finds with crushing power. Trapped for so long in a prison without shackles, she knew her resistance would soon fail. She sighed, running a hand over the ever-familiar shapes drawn on the cave wall. Shutting her eyes, she willed herself not to lose hope. Would salvation find its way to Shay? They must make haste or all will be lost. She turned toward the cave entrance and gazed down upon a valley painted in colors of the rising sun.
A sinister evil lurks in the land of Shay, where treacherous paths draw Abby, Rory and Finlay ever closer to utmost danger.
