Last, the smallest and the greatest...
Though he must be lost before he can find,
Though, before he sees, he must be blind,
If he can find and if he can see,
The true king of all he shall be.
Prince Peregrine, rightful heir to the starkin and wildkin crowns, longs for adventure. But Vernisha the Vile, who seized the starkin throne, seeks to destroy Peregrine, his family, and all the wildkin of Ziva.
With Stormfell Castle under attack, Peregrine flees with his best friend, Jack, and Lady Grizelda – a starkin girl who is working against Vernisha. Together they seek the Spear of the Storm King – the long-lost weapon which, it is prophesied, will destroy the starkin throne. But danger is never far behind, as a hunter is on their tail and someone close doesn't want them to succeed...
The Starkin Crown is the thrilling conclusion to the The Starthorn Tree and The Wildkin's Curse.

Chronicles of Estelliana
A series of three novels for readers aged 12+, set in a faraway land of magic and monsters, valiant heroes and wicked villains. Each book tells the story of a new generation of heroes who must each fight their own battle before peace can at last come to the embattled land of Estelliana.
I have always loved books filled with adventure, magic, romance, and humour, stories set long, long ago and far, far away. When I set out to write the 'Chronicles of Estelliana', I wanted to recapture the feel of the books I had loved so much as a child, books like The Princess Bride, The Silver Curlew, The Hobbit and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
Each novel can be read by itself, though I'd recommend you read them all in order.
