I’m hosting an excerpt today from “The Quest of Galamar”, the second book in the Storyteller series. I hosted an excerpt from the first book, “The True World”, a few days ago.
“But what if it’s right about the dragon? What if I can’t protect you?” asked Lily.
“I’ll take my chances. I’m supposed to be the one protecting you, remember?” teased Peter. “Besides, if there is a dragon, I’m certainly not going to let you face it alone.”
“Maybe if we made her think I was alone, I could distract her while you got the stone?” said Lily, thinking out loud.
“Her? We don’t even know if there is a dragon, much less whether it’s a him or a her,” said Peter.
“Take cover!” yelled Jude up ahead of them, diving into the brush with Heather. Peter saw it first, a golden dragon swirling high above them. He pushed Lily down, following her to the ground.
“What is it?” cried Lily.
“Your dragon,” whispered Peter, trying to look up through the branches they hid under.
“Her name is Ironclaw.”
Storyteller Book II: The Quest of Galamar
The second book in the Storyteller Series, “The Quest of Galamar”, continues the tale of Lily Lightfoot and her friends Peter Everheart and Heather Whipple. Now that they’ve found their way into the True World, the friends must rely on the help of Lord Gabriel, an enchanted elf, now a manticore, to find Lily’s captured grandmother, Gwendolyn.
Gabriel sends the three friends to find the full moon amulet, hidden deep in the mountains and guarded by a fierce dragon. The amulet, one of four moonstones created ages ago by the fabled elf warrior Galamar, holds the power of the Northern Portal keeper, Ironblood the dragon. Whoever possesses all four amulets has the power to recreate or destroy the True World. Gabriel’s brother, Lord Kane, will stop at nothing to have the ancient powers for himself and keep Lily from fulfilling the Prophecy of Galamar.
On their epic journey, Lily learns more about magic, friendship, the power of forgiveness and finding the strength we all possess inside.
Lisa, like most writers, began scribbling silly notes, stories, and poems at a very young age. Born in North Carolina, the South proved fertile ground to her imagination with its beautiful white sand beaches and red earth. In fifth grade, she wrote, directed and starred in a play “The Queen of the Nile” at school, despite the fact that she is decidedly un-Egyptian looking. Perhaps that’s why she went on to become a real life archaeologist?
Unexpectedly transplanted to Idaho as a teenager, Lisa learned to love the desert and the wide open skies out West. This is where her interest in cultures, both ancient and living, really took root, and she became a Great Basin archaeologist. However, the itch to write never did leave for long. Her first books became the middle grade fantasy trilogy, The Storyteller Series. Her first traditionally published work, Hush Puppy, is coming soon from Featherweight Press.
Lisa still lives in Idaho with her family and a menagerie of furry critters that includes way too many llamas!
