About the Author
Lorn Wolf was born and raised in Northern British Columbia, Canada, where he spent his childhood adventuring around his parents' thousand acre horse ranch. His imagination was first sparked by the bedtime stories his mother would tell him and then, at age ten, his schoolteacher read to the class, The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. This truly solidified his absolute infatuation with fantasy. Lorn's other interest was music and that's where his writing skill began. At the age of eight he wrote his first song and along with learning to play many instruments and becoming a recording artist, he continued writing many songs for himself and other performers. After spending eight years in Nashville Tennessee, honing his songwriting craft, he began to find that style of writing too confining and decided to combine his dedication to writing with his love of fantasy and become an author of fiction.

It's been four years since the woodcutter made the journey into the Whispering Forest and gave his promise to the ancient being that dwells within. While he struggles to understand the conflicts that continue to burden his family, his concerns are drawn outward by the recent uprisings that threaten to plunge the kingdom into war. The Gatou tribes have united as a hostile force, refusing entry into the plains, and the Pirates of the South Seas have returned to terrorize the eastern waters. The Dryland Brigands have taken up their old ways, denying acces to the Beldens' Pass and cutting off all trade from Southport. Now the citizens of Beldens' Wall find themselves trapped between the aggressors and have even been forsaken by the Council of Healers, who have taken refuge in the solitude of their mountain keep. As the peril to the land increases, Shyla's sixteenth birthday approaches, and the woodcutter still doesn't understand what the Water Fairy could want with his little girl.
