The Rising

By Karen MacLeod-Wilkie

On September 10, Karen MacLeod-Wilkie will celebrate the launch of The Rising, her fifth book in five years, and the third in The Prophecy Series. 

In the Fairy Realm, Asa receives a message of anguish from the trees. He and his mentor, Donovan, must figure out what has happened as they travel the Realm with Queen Amethyst. On their journey, new gifts open up within Asa, and he is pushed to his limits in unexpected ways. Meanwhile, on Earth, a young dwarf called Rebel convinces his mother to mount a rescue mission in search of his father. Their journey is fraught with danger, and Rebel has to face difficult choices that will change the course of his life forever.
