The Fantasy Map
I love a good map attached to a Fantasy novel. There is nothing like being able to follow the trail of a great character's adventure.
Here is the map of Roub-Talum for my soon-to-be-released series for Middle Grade.
The first book in the series, The Shadow Village, accelerates dramatically as teenager Elora unexpectedly finds herself in Roub-Talum, where invaders from the adjacent land of Bioraliss have usurped the throne she never knew was hers. Readers can follow the trail of adventure and misadventure as Elora faces insurmountable peril.
