Sneak Peek of The Fable Ranger Series by A. L. Brown

My legs trembled, no longer stuck in place. Wobbling backwards, I turned and wrapped my fingers around the knob, twisting and pulling. I chewed my bottom lip then remembered the jolt of the lock jamming home. I balled my hands into fists and banged against the door.

“Mom! Dad!” They had to hear me. They had to. Please!

I stopped when a soft female voice called out. “S.O.S. Fairy GIT to Fable Ranger. Fairy GIT to Fable Ranger. Please, we need your help.”

One fairy godmother-in-training remains after all the godmothers have been kidnapped by the evil Dovetail. Only one thing Fairy GIT can do: summon the Fable Ranger, protector of the book and land of Lorealia. With his strength and might, he can unite the heroes of legends and lore and bring the godmothers home.

Just one problem…

Instead of a grown man, twelve-year-old Casey – a girl – answers the call.

Casey didn’t want to be swept away to a strange new world, and certainly didn’t expect to be rejected as the Fable Ranger summoned simply because she was a child and a girl. Worse yet, the unbalance of good and bad magic closed off her only way back to the people she loves.

Trapped, Casey’s only dream is to go home, but there’s no special chant or wave of the wand to make it happen. Her wish will require work, sweat, and very special tears. Can she fulfill her wish when Dovetail will stop at nothing to complete his agenda of spiraling the land of Lorealia into the ruins of a happily never after?

 

Mom sat on my bed, with me still in her arms. Dad stood by her side. The moment couldn’t have been more perfect.

I glanced around and found my room looked no different, and I was glad for that. I would have been Frankenstein sad to have my Justin Timberlake and WNBA posters ripped from the walls by the crazy funnel of rose petals that had first swept me away to the land of Lorealia. Everything was just as I’d left it, exactly the same… well…

Except for me.

Casey is home! But not for long…

Casey’s short-lived return to the real world is followed by a rapid scramble back to Lorealia to tackle Dovetail and more of his mischief. This time, it’s a family affair — not just to save the missing godmothers, but to rescue her sister Leslie as well.

Snow White is now Snow Leslie, trapped in an off-script fairy tale that’s doomed to spiral into a never ever after with the rest of Lorealia if Casey, her father, and Charlie-boy fail their mission to stop a war.

And has the book finally realized it made a mistake in choosing Casey as the Fable Ranger after all? Why is it rejecting her?

Born and raised in Little Rock, AR, Angela now calls Central Texas home.

Reading and writing have been lifelong passions. It was around the time she gave birth to her forever-love, nicknamed Chipmunk, that she really took writing seriously. After all, how could she teach her child to follow her dreams if she hadn’t tried herself?

As a YA fantasy/sci-fi reader and author, she favors the magical, mysterious, the darker side of life…even harbors a secret fright for things that go bump in the night.

First Lines Friday #3

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. I first saw this on Life of A Literary Nerd  and decided this would be fun to start adding to my blog. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

*Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page

*Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first

*Finally… reveal the book!

Raising-Sleepy-Stones-189x300

Title: Raising Sleepy Stones
Author: P.H.T. Bennet
Publisher: Dramkeeper Publishing
Pages: 360
Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy

Like every kid in Solasenda, Kiva Stone has been far too busy training for one of the five town guilds to think about something as useless as dreaming. But when she and her sister DeeDee uncover a mysterious plot to get rid of them, their only hope lies with a shadowy group of people who wield unimaginable powers drawn from their dreams. As the girls escape with them up the Varruvyen river, they start learning secret Dreaming Way techniques that have been forbidden for centuries. But how can they learn enough to stand against the enemies chasing them? The answer lies in the shattered history of Orora Crona, the lost Valley of Dreams, and whoever can piece it together first will rule for centuries to come.

P.H.T.-Bennet-300x200

P.H.T. Bennet began exploring his dreams when he was a child and has never bothered to stop. He had the good luck to have two daughters, Juliette and Paola, who not only served as the inspirations for DeeDee and Kiva, the main characters of Raising Sleeping Stones, but also helped him turn their family dreamwork sessions into this book. His lucky streak grew when he married his lovely wife, Mim, who tolerates his turning on a light in the middle of the night to write down ever-crazier dreams and talking about them in the morning as long as he lets her sleep in, first. His favorite dreams involve flying, visiting the dead, and replaying nightmares until they reveal their secrets.

Pratt’s latest projects are editing Book Two of the Orora Crona Chronicles and planning a virtual summer dreaming camp with other dream authors.
