The Green Ember by S. D. Smith
Heather and Picket are extraordinary rabbits with ordinary lives until
calamitous events overtake them, spilling them into a cauldron of
misadventures. They discover that their own story is bound up in the
tumult threatening to overwhelm the wider world.
Kings fall and
kingdoms totter. Tyrants ascend and terrors threaten. Betrayal beckons,
and loyalty is a broken road with peril around every bend.
Where will Heather and Picket land? How will they make their stand?
A captivating story with sword-bearing rabbits, daring quests, and
moments of poignant beauty, The Green Ember is a tale that will delight
and inspire young readers to courage and creativity.
