Song of the Elves

Epic fantasy novels and short stories by David Charles Shepherd

Run with the Wolf pack


Great news – Wolves of Winter, my prequel of sorts to the Song of the Elves saga, is now complete. I’m currently preparing to launch this new stand alone novel through amazon kindle and for paperback.

Three rip-roaring adventure stories are told by the mysterious Mallakai to his grandson Thomas. The bonds between Thomas and his grandfather are tested as the seemingly remote tales come to have a bearing on this family from Greendale. Set in two time streams from the world before the elves invaded Rhoderica, here you can encounter giant ice wyrms, savage humanoids, witchcraft and the machinations of men.

More to follow in the next few days in this exciting development at SOTE HQ.

Until next time, up the Elves! (Or should that be ‘wolves!’)

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.
