Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Here come the beasts!

Now that I’ve completed the final draft of A Shadow Falls, I’m taking a short break from editing the next installment  of Song of the Elves while the SOTE technical team prepares Book One for paperback release.

As a result I’ve got time on my hands, which I aim to use to expand the content of the website.  To get the ball rolling I turned to the beasts of Rhoderica.

Check out the Creatures page to find out what manner of beast Kirik and his friends can expect to face in their forthcoming adventures.

Boarbacks, Darklings, Gnarls and Zelts are just a few of the wierd and wonderful animals that inhabit Rhoderica.

Enjoy, but be warned – many of these creatures hunt at night, when the shadows fall…

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.
