Eirwen and the Gossamer Rainbow

by

“As the light caught its tunic making it shine and shimmer like butterfly wings it made her shudder. 
In spite of the beauty of the clothes it was ugly. The back of its bulging head and long fingered hands were the same sickly non-shade. No fur, no feathers and no colour. He was Casuista.”

This is an unearthly tale about an unusual girl called Eirwen. She is 50cm tall with green skin, blue hair and golden eyes. There are many questions to be answered: she was born on another planet, so why is she living on Earth and being protected by her two brothers, Gwyn and Tomos – and why are those brothers snow geese? 

The monster of a creature, Casuista, is also from another planet: what does he want on Earth and why are animals disappearing or losing their colours? 

Their protectors, the Learned Ravens, are unable to help so can Eirwen

When Gwyn is also snatched Eirwen begins her dangerous journey to find and rescue the prisoners in the process discovering new inner strengths and passions. 

Eirwen and the Gossamer Rainbow is wonderfully magical with vivid descriptions and a fascinating antagonist. It is a story that can be enjoyed by all age groups.

Book 1 Review
"Eirwen and the Gossamer Rainbow gets one's attention from the very first page and maintains interest throughout with some good twists and turns in this moral tale. I particularly enjoyed the final surprise and look forward to further developments in this trilogy." Polly Milner

Good News friends! Book 2 of the trilogy is now in print and in e-book form. Called 'The Stolen Planet' it takes Eirwen to new heights of development and adventure.

First review: The Stolen Planet is the second book in the fantasy trilogy that started with Eirwen and the Gossamer Rainbow. In the Stolen Planet , the nymph Eirwen sets out to discover the truth behind her exile to earth, and to reveal the fate of her home planet, Nereid. Eirwen begins her long and perilous journey under the sea to consult Neptune, the ruler of her planetary system, but soon into her journey she is horrified to realise that her elder sisters, who were turned into geese to disguise them from their enemies, have limited time left to live in their earthly forms. Eirwen must find a way to return her sisters to their rightful forms as nymphs before she loses them forever.

The Stolen Planet is a delightful story about self-discovery, courage and empowerment, set in an undersea world of mystical creatures and Eirwen is an engaging protagonist who grows in strength and self-knowledge as she confronts new challenges.

Pearl spent twenty years with young people teaching mathematics and IT and gained a Ph.D researching the fascinating area of Mental Models developed by children between the ages of nine and fourteen. In retirement she began to paint finding a particular interest in plants and animals. These included paintings for her grandchildren which stimulated visual imagination and told a story.

A writing for Children course with The London School of Journalism helped her to get ideas into words and writing started.
