About the Book

After years of hiding, a guardian and his young elf ward are forced to go on the run for their lives. Seeking help, they recruit an unusual cast to help them along the way. The long time friend of the guardian, an old priest, whose love and devotion to the One True God, empowers him with gifts that can aid and guide them on their journey. The hawk lord, bound to the elf, whose command of the sky and agility in battle making him a formidable ally. The crusty, old battle wolf, whose ability to transform himself for time into a massive version of himself providing a level of offense that few can match. And finally, the mysterious spy, whose own potential for craft and cunning continues to surprise the others.

Along the way, the friends of the guardian discover that the young elf is not just an orphaned child that the compassionate warrior took in years ago, but is in fact, the lost heir of the fallen realm of Silverwood. After years of decline and the rise of chaos, her discovery could mean an end to the ever increasing darkness and war that covers the land, and a return to peace. That is, if she survives and can be shown to be the true heir to the throne. The great challenge they face, is proving that the elf is indeed the heir. Meanwhile, others have heard of the heir’s rumored existence, and they are anxious to see that the heir’s authenticity is never verified.

So the race begins through the five realms to piece together the one artifact - a mythical talisman thought destroyed when Silverwood fell - that can unquestionably put an end to the question of the heir’s right to the throne. Many clues will have to be discovered, and battles fought along the way. Ultimately, they all lean on the leadership of the guardian of the Silverwood to guide them through the challenges they must face.


About the Author

Matthew Graphman is a twenty year veteran in the information technology world. He studied writing and drama, as well as computers, while attending Bob Jones University in the late 80’s and early 90’s. There he met his wife, Wendy, of twenty-three years and started a family. He currently resides in Bloomington, Indiana with his wife and two children, Kathryn (Kat) and Ethan. His oldest son, Sean, is currently in college and is engaged to be married. Matthew has long been a fan of fantasy fiction. His first attempt at writing was brought on by roommates in college egging him on, and so he wrote his first unpublished fantasy novel. After graduating, Matthew continued his writing exploits, mostly in the drama genre. After developing a series of children’s skits in the 2000’s, he was encouraged to take the skits and convert them into a series of children’s chapter books. To date, he has written four of the fourteen stories in the “Chel & Riley Adventures” series. Taking a break from creating children’s fiction and drama, Matthew decided to reach back at the request from his daughter, Kat, and create a fantasy world that mixed all of her favorite thematic elements. This series is currently outlined to cover five volumes; however, he is convinced that there could be many more stories that evolve out of this new universe.
