The Dream Gatherer
A visit with the eccentric Berry sisters turns dangerous when an arcane device is discovered in their house that can summon dreamers through their dreams, and one of them is a nightmare.
Raised in an orphan camp, Green Rider Danalong has known only war and strife, until a shipwreck leaves him stranded on a mysterious island.
Linked, on the Lake of Souls
In the sixth volume of the Green Rider series, Firebrand, a wounded Karigan G'ladheon asks her friend Estral to tell her a story to take her mind off her pain. This is that story.
This collection includes illustrations, backstory on the creation of Green Rider by Kristen Britain, and a special introduction by award-winning science fiction and fantasy author, Julie E. Czerneda.
With this pleasing collection, Britain (Firebrand) celebrates the 20th anniversary of the publication of Green Rider, her first novel, which opened her ongoing epic fantasy series featuring intrepid adventurer Karigan G'ladheon. Britain begins by telling "The Story Behind the Story," describing the creative road of that original work. Each of the 13 stories and one novella in this collection are written in the voice of Estral, Golden Guardian of Selium and friend of Karigan. "Wishwind" tells an ancient tale of the goddesslike figure of Marin the Gardener; the others tie in to the current story line of the series. "Linked, on the Lake of Souls" is a humorous tale told by Estral to Karigan while both are held captive. "The Dream Gatherer" sees Estral arrive at Seven Chimneys, the magical home of the Berry sisters, first introduced in Green Rider. An additional measure of whimsy is added by Britain's own "amateur" illustrations. This is a must for fans of the series.
