Marta Stahlfeld, author of Darkwoods and Pasadagavra
-- Tomorrow (Saturday, August 11), beginning at 2:00 p.m., eighteen-year old author Marta Stahlfeld will be signing copies of "Darkwoods" and "Pasadagavra,"
the first two books in her middle-school/
young adult fantasy series, at the Lakewood Mall Barnes & Noble, located at 5711 Main Street SW, Lakewood, WA 98499.
Like the popular "Redwall" and "Warrior" series, the characters in Stahlfeld's series are all animals. "Darkwoods"
begins with the death of the foxes' ruling oracle, Scythe, freeing the foxes to leave their home in Darkwoods determined to conquer the world. Standing in their way is Princess Zuryzel of the Wraith Mice, with the ability to fade undetected into the shadows, and her allies among the Squirrel Tribes, Ranger Mice, and River Otters.
the reader finds the war in full progress, and soon the great Stone Tribe city of Pasadagavra is under attack. Zuryzel must leave behind the painful memory of a lost battle to save her own fortress, and instead seek out new allies for the struggling defenders of Pasadagavra. As the story unfolds, Zuryzel encounters friendship, betrayal and a secret she would much rather stay hidden, while those inside Pasadagavra learn the depths of their own strength and bravery.
Like any good epic tale, the Darkwoods Series includes battles, romance, and treachery, as well as the individual heroism necessary to defeat evil.
Stahlfeld began writing "Darkwoods" when she was twelve, and published it in 2011. The newly released "Pasadagavra"
is the second in the four book series written primarily for preteens and middle-school readers.
