Witches, trolls, nymphs and Silverfurs are surely the figment of one’s imagination. That’s what Emily Jones used to think until she moves to Scotland shortly before her fourteenth birthday to live in her deceased grandmother’s manor with her father.
Ravencourt Manor's just as creepy as she remembered it with plenty of creaking noises, rattling doors and a hunched shadow that roams the manor’s garden at night.
In the hope to bring her separated parents back together, Emily opens a portal to Black Wood; a world of dangerous and alluring nymphs dwelling beneath the streams ready to drown her, where the sinister guardian and keeper of the Black Heart and cursed trolls are waiting, desperate to be released. And so Emily’s long and dangerous fight against the evil Muriel begins.
Will Emily learn to use her grandmother's legacy in time before the evil Muriel regains her full powers to summon and unleash her deadly servants on the world?
BLACK WOOD is the first book in the teen series, A WITCH RISING. Full length teen fiction: approx. 200pp.
