Hi everyone! In case you missed it here are the videos from when I did a few live videos this past week leading up to the release of Zaria Fierce and the Dragon Keeper’s Golden Shoes, the third book in the Zaria Fierce Trilogy. Oskar pie steals the show I think in both cases. xoxo

Thanks for watching!
In other news the print and ebook versions are available at Amazon. The audio book version is coming soon. Michele is hard at work putting on the finishing touches.
Lots of great reviews are starting to come in for the third book. Check them out!
Zaria is able to fall on her friends for support and their continual encouragement give her just the confidence she needs to keep trying, to persevere. They never hold her mistakes against her and won’t allow Zaria to take the blame for being tricked. For me, it’s one of my favorite parts in reading this series, well that and the unique qualities that each character brings to the story.
As always, I’m completely mesmerised by how much the Norwegian folklore is present in these books. There were a few new “beasts” such as the banshees and the mares (which scared the living hell out of me to be honest) but the same old creatures made a cameo. We had the trolls, witches, the dwarves, the ellefolken, dragons, the lot. The fantasy in these books is strong and so beautifully explore and described I almost felt like I could wander through Norway and stumble upon these eerie creatures and realms.
Recommended for middle grade collections where fantasy is popular. I’d book talk this with other hero’s journey tales like CS Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia and Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson/Magnus Chase series; they’ll have a firmer frame of reference when you present the series with these popular fantasy tales. Talk up Zaria as a strong female character who overcomes her fears and self-doubts to outwit monsters, and save herself and her friends!
