    THE GOLDEN BAND OF EDDRIS
    When the Knights of Ahln appear to Keld in a vision, his mother, Anna, knows she must send him and his sister, Elylden, on a long journey to save them from harm. But before they go, their mother gives them each a gift: to Keld, the coveted ring that belonged to his father, and to Elylden, the ability to see the future. Their adventure leads them to a world of sorcerers, magic caverns, lost lands, and finally the golden band-a symbol of the knowledge and power possessed by the evil witch Eddris. With the help of a warmhearted wizard, Keld and Elylden realize the strength of their gifts and discover the truth about their own mysterious past.

    **He saw them coming out of the pine forest above the meadow. One by one, horsemen in full armor with swords at their sides and spears in their hands. Silver and black under the white moon, they came from beneath the trees to turn south across the meadow behind the cottage. One by one they followed to the road at the end of the meadow. One by one they went up the road to vanish over the top of the knoll. They made no sound.**

    Drujienna’s Harp

    Drujienna’s Harp is a curious YA/middle grade adventure story. Two children, Tha and her younger brother, enter an antique shop and are pulled out of this world and into Tpal, a world of concentric circles. They are entangled in a prophecy that relates to the three ages of the world, and chances for restoration or destruction. So far, so typical, you may be thinking, but what makes the story different is the uniqueness of the places and the world as a whole (a reviewer on Amazon says “I think the startling landscape that serves as a backdrop for the story is half the beauty of the story”), and the sensitivity and realism with which all the characters are drawn. You travel to the edges of the world with the characters, and when you meet an eventual prince, he’s not at all what you’re expecting. People’s choices aren’t easy ones; temptations are hard to resist. But mainly, the thing I recall–and when I read it, I was older than the target audience–was how completely entrancing the world was. And the prophecy rocks!
