GIVE THE GIFT OF READING
The holidays are here! It’s a time for sharing and giving!
Why not share some joy this season by giving a gift that never gets worn out. Give your favorite reader a copy of The Sword of Demelza! From December 6th at 8:00 a.m. EST, until December 10th at 8:00 a.m. EST, the digital version of the book will be on sale on Amazon for .99¢.
The Sword of Demelza, is a fast-paced adventure where endangered animal heroes roam the pages. With more than fifteen sketches by talented illustrator, Guy Atherfold, and William Hulbert, some of Australia’s most unusual and endangered animals come to life in this fantastical adventure. A glossary at the back of the book provides tidbits of information about the flora and fauna pressed between the pages.
In the forests of Sunderland, a King has gained control of a powerful sword. He wields this sword with evil intent and anger. All of the creatures in the land fear him, and many have been imprisoned for speaking out against him.
It will take a rag-tag band of creatures, some natural enemies, to come together. They must storm Fortress Demelza, and bring an end to the reign of the King.
Publisher’s Weekly says, “In this debut, Rogers uses her love of Australian wildlife to deliver a rousing Redwallesque fantasy, in which a coalition of creatures embarks on an epic quest.” (Recommended for ages 6—12.)
Book of the Year Finalist in ForeWord Reviews- “Told in crisp, page-turning prose, readers of all ages will find this to be an engaging novel built around a framework of moral guidance.”
Gold Honoree in the Benjamin Franklin Digital Awards – “The Sword of Demelza, is unlike any anthropomorphized animal story on the market today.”
Winner of a Gold Medal in Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards
Winner of a Bronze Medal in Readers’ Favorite Int’l Book Awards
