THE STEWARD (Weald Fae Journals, Book 1)
by Christopher Shields
Christopher Shields has created a wonderful world filled with Fantasy, intrigue and magic. The Steward (Weald Fae Journals) is fast paced with a strong protagonist. It’s set amidst the beauty of the Ozarks in Arkansas; who would expect to meet the Fae here? That’s fairies to the uninitiated – but nothing like tinkerbell. These are the classic faeries from Celtic lore who rule the woodlands and control the elements. Some are aligned with goodness and others
are quite frightful. Maggie, a 16 year old girl, who has been uprooted from her home learns there is more to her background than a cabin in the Ozarks. She is to be the new Steward, one who protects the land of the Fae and is a liason between their world and ours.
Touted as a YA story, this will delight lovers of Fantasy of any age.
I highly recommend this book, I couldn’t put it down. My only dismay (and delight) was the discovery that there is a sequel!
Well done, Christopher Shields, well done!
