Haunted by strange dreams and loathe to say goodbye to her boyfriend Anthony, Robyn Greening seriously regrets taking a summer job on the North Cornish coast.
Following a bitter betrayal by Anthony, she reconnects with old friends at a new age shop called The Dragon’s Rest only to realise all is not good. Jim and Julianne are on edge and following several odd experiences and a worsening of her nightmares, Robyn discovers her human world is linked with another magical universe and the barrier between them has been damaged to the point of collapse.
Dark powers have been growing in the magical realm, awaiting an opportunity to take control of both worlds. Robyn becomes increasingly immersed in danger as she sets off on a quest to find a lost fragment from the shield and restore it to its rightful place. Meanwhile, sinister forces on the other side are desperate to find it too. Increasing incursions from the magical realm put everything that Robyn has come to hold dear at risk, as she and her friends search desperately for the missing piece.
Can she manage the impossible and save both worlds before the time runs out?
Izzy used to work in the medical field in London and following a downshift, now works as a complementary therapist, author and editor in Dorset. She writes with ethereal passion about her love of the unusual and magical with stories predominantly aimed at young adults and the young at heart. “Maybe I never really grew up” she says. “I love the idea that anything is possible. Someone once told me that magic isn’t all whizz-bang theatrics, it’s the occurrence of the unexpected. We just have to open our eyes and look.” See www.IzzyRobertsonAuthor.co.uk for further details.
Lovers of fantasy fiction (YA-adults) enjoy Izzy’s tales which are positively influenced by Charles de Lint and Alice Hoffman’s books. She uses clean, clear narrative that any parent would be happy for their child to read, however, this title is a YA-adult crossover.
