Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Song of the Elves Book 3 – Out Now!

I am delighted to announce the publication of Book 3 of the Song of the Elves. Sins of the Father is available now as an e-book through amazon kindle and as a paperback through

The book completes the first trilogy of the fantasy saga.

It is a bitter sweet moment, as the book was written in dedication to my own wonderful father.  I am going to donate money from the sale of the book to the British Alzheimers society. As regular readers will know I lost my father to dementia earlier in the year.

I am currently finishing work on a prequel to the saga entitle The Wolves of Winter, before I go back to work on Book 4.

Thank you for your support, and for your patience in waiting for book 3 to appear.

Happy Days.

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. I will bring this to you in coming months through kindle. I have scripts for a number of stand alone "Wolves" novels. Other projects include a fantasy version of the great John Ford western - The Searchers. 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.
