July 18, 2011 - PRLog -- Saturday, July 23, 2011, 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.:  Teen author Marta Stahlfeld will be signing copies of "Darkwoods," her middle-school/young adult fantasy novel, at Burien Books during the Olde Burien Sidewalk Sale.  Burien Books is located at 824 S.W. 152nd St., Burien, WA 98166.

"Darkwoods" is the first book in a new series, also named "Darkwoods."  Like the popular "Redwall" and "Warrior" series, the characters in the "Darkwoods" 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.  Like any good epic tale, "Darkwoods" includes battles, romance, and treachery, as well as the individual heroism necessary to defeat evil.    

Stahlfeld, who is 17 years old, began writing "Darkwoods" when she was twelve and has already finished writing the follow-up novel, "Pasadagavra."  She plans a total of six books in this epic series written primarily for middle-school readers.

"I want to really encourage kids to read.  Reading opens up the world, and lets you use your imagination.  If you don't like fantasy novels like mine, that's fine, there are lots of other books for kids.  Just pick one up and start reading!"
