Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

First cycle nears end

Weclome to Song of the Elves – if you are a new reader who has joined us via kindle, you may not be aware of the intended journey for Kirik and Eidur.  Song of the Elves is a saga told in three cyles.  The first cycle is nearing completion, with Sins of the Father due out at Christmas.  The first two parts, A Shadow Falls and The King’s Blades are already available to buy now.

At the end of Sins of the Father, the action leaps forward five years to a very different Rhoderica – though I can’t give too much away now as it will spoil the ending of book three.  There will be nine books in total – I will start writing book four, The Lost, the Lonely and the Damned in January next year.

Next week, I’ll give you an update on some of the new exciting characters you will find in book three – Sins of the Father.

Until then, 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.
