Illustrated by Leland Wong-Daugherty
The first book of The Faery Chronicles, Anglebert Crosses the Great Water, is a fast-paced adventure novel about an Irish Faery who, on impulse, but with a sense of destiny, travels with a Human visitor to her Farm and Forest home in New Brunswick. Much to Anglebert’s surprise, he has been expected.
He discovers the Elders have chosen him to help bring about a new union of the Faery and Human worlds meant to protect and restore the Earth.
But Destructive Forces are dead-set against this union and are on the move to prevent it. Therein begins a tale of cooperation, unlikely heroism, and a fierce battle, with the restoration of Earth’s healing energy hanging in the balance.
