Will Ellie decipher the mystery of the Counsel of 9 before her beloved world of Mojahr fades into eternal darkness or will she and her unique collection of friends be forced to spend the rest of their existence in darkest night?
Raised the daughter of a simple carpenter, Ellie has spent all her time innocently reading about animals and carving them in wood with her father, but during the Winter Festiva celebration of Mojahr's continents, Rolok, Sol Minor and Detante, Ellie finds herself and her best friend, Cane, thrust into the center of a treacherous plot involving the three continental kings.
Suddenly Ellie must teach herself to use enchanted weapons, dragons and forbidden magic to unravel the legend of The Demon Pain and unlock the secret of the Counsel of 9.
A changeling, a thief, an elf and myriad woodland creatures all offer Ellie their help, and one particularly odd shop owner ends up being a possible key to the solution of all the political unrest in which Ellie and Cane have found themselves embedded.
Can these two, barely sixteen years old, along with the strange collection of cohorts they have gathered, solve this mystery? Or will time run out and cover forever their beloved world of Mojahr under the cloak of an eternal night?
An intriguing blend of fantasy and science fiction, The Carpenter's Daughter will take you on a fanciful fictional journey through lands you've never seen with creatures you've never imagined.
