Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the New York Times bestselling Green Rider series, this short volume introduces readers to new sides of Sacoridia in two new short stories and a novella.
In The Dream Gatherer, Kristen Britain presents a novella and two short stories set in the universe of her best selling Green Rider series in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the publication of her first novel, Green Rider.
The Dream Gatherer
Dreams can be dangerous. 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.
Finding peace during the Long War. 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
A story of friendship within a story of friendship. 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.
The book includes illustrations and backstory on the creation of Green Rider by the author, 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 royal messenger Karigan G'ladheon. Britain begins by telling "The Story Behind the Story," describing the creative road of that original work. Each of the two 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.
