The Silver Guardians is the first book in the Morfan series.
Fantasy is used as a medium to explore important ethical and moral issues of our time.
Focuses on issues such as survival in a land without water, or the fears and anxieties related to immigration.
Gotland and Getland are two islands surrounded by a vast blue ocean. The two islands are very different: Gotland is green and fertile; the other, Getland, grey and dusty and barren. Unknown to the people of these islands, a deadly struggle is taking place. A creature lives deep under the sea and plots to control the islands by possessing the minds of people. Behind this creature is its creator, the terrifying and puzzling Death Visitors who, for all their power, have strict rules of their own. On one of the islands lives a colony of large, silver spiders. They were there long before people came, and now serve secretly as guardians, frustrating the plans of the sea creature.
Into this struggle are drawn two people, a boy and a girl, each having a special reason to fight against the evil influence of the sea creature. Their struggle takes them beneath the sea, deep into the sea creature’s cave, and eventually to brave the terrors of the Currents of the Ends of Time, in order to find the way to defeat the sea creature once and for all. The silver guardians have to use their courage and wit in order that others might survive.
This book will appeal to readers aged nine and over, and fans of fantasy fiction.
