Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

New feature

As promised, the team here at Song of the Elves HQ is working hard to increase your enjoyment of the website.  From today you can access the new Chronology page!

Here you will find a potted history of the land of Rhoderica in the Age of the Light – the period of history measured by humans from the moment of ascencion to the heavens of the prophet Gayala.

In amongst the dates are handy references to where you can read about these events in greater detail.  As more of the history of Rhoderica is written, the number of references will grow.  As you can see, I’m going to be fairly busy for a few years to come.

Let me know what you think of the new feature page, and which parts of the history you would like to read about next.

Until next time…

Up the Elves! 

About The Author

Writing has been my main form of escape since a child. Before teaching, I earned a living on a little known national newspaper, before discovering I also had a calling for the classroom. The first embryonic scribbles for Song of the Elves emerged in 2000. I began writing the first trilogy as one continuous manuscript entitled The Summerlands, which I finally completed in the Winter of 2007. In the intervening years, I've been transforming this first draft into three distinct instalments of the saga. "A Shadow Falls" and "The King's Blades" have already seen the light of day. "Sins of the Father" will follow shortly. There will be a second trilogy to complete the saga, which I intend to commence work on in 2012. Book four is entitled "The Lost, The Lonely and the Damned". I have also written a series of short tales entitled The Wolves of Winter, set in Rhoderica before the elves invaded the continent. This is now available through as a paperback and via amazon kindle as an e-book.. My second, 'Tale of Rhoderica' will be a fantasy version of the great John Ford western - The Searchers. Entitled, To the Ends of the Earth', the novel will be out for Spring 2016. I am also half-way through a manuscript for a science fiction novel, entitled The Mirror of His Soul. Time and health permitting, these will all eventually see the light of day.
