The Cliffs of Connemaigh
“The world is forever changed. Two dimensions are now one, and our heroine, Elaine Castle, a human, is navigating a world filled with dragons, orcs, and a mysterious enemy utilizing every power at its disposal to make sure that Elaine does not survive to unite the humans, Forest Elves, and Sky Elves. Our heroine is a wielder – a magic wielder, that is, and she definitely retains ancestral memory of being an elf, but is Elaine a helmannigr, a human born with an elven soul?
While she trains and her teacher tries to determine if she is, indeed, helmannigr, she fights with her blocks against two of the seven elements that all wielders have access to. These blocks are killing her, as magic kills the untrained. Is the answer in Connemaigh, the abandoned city of the Sky Elves that she arrived at in The Autumn of the Whitewood, or is it elsewhere in this new and dangerous world?
An epic fantasy with elements of romance, a hint of sci-fi, and a creative plot, The Cliffs of Connemaigh uses traditional fantasy tropes with new twists, and challenges the boundaries of the genre of fantasy.”
The modern-day world has just collided with a forgotten, ancient realm. Elaine Castle, a wildlife biologist, finds that the mythical creatures of her childhood, such as elves, goblins, and orcs, not only exist, but are locked in an age-old war. Elaine discovers her own dormant magical abilities as she learns about this new world she must live in.
If left untrained, her magical abilities would threaten to destroy her and everyone she loves. Only the elves can train her and she faces her own inner struggle as her companions begin to reveal who they really are. To make matters worse, she and her companions find themselves taking sides in the war.
In a world filled with dangers like banshee, dragons, and a centuries-old war, The Autumn of the Whitewood follows Elaine and her friends on their journey to Connemaigh, an old elven stronghold, in the hopes of training her. The Autumn of the Whitewood is a fantasy with a dash of romance and magical, as well as mythical creatures. It is the first book in The Chronicles of the Starborn.
