When the Great Verazslo is kidnapped, Shamera must quickly learn his magical art. He needs to seek out the Elvenii before the Blood Moon has waned and give them the crystal shard for its protection. However, there are evil forces who want the crystal for themselves and will stop at nothing to get their hands on it.

When the destructive Sorceress begins to ravage the region, Shamera is sent on a quest to an unknown land. He must decipher an encrypted map and search for a mysterious weapon, to help defeat the evil Sorceress in battle. The fate of the Second Realm rests on Shamera’s young shoulders.

Whilst a tale of a protagonist who finds himself having to save his community, T S James is also keen that his Shamera helps readers to nurture their own self-belief.

This page-turning addition to the ever-popular fantasy genre is suitable for all ages, and leaves readers enthralled and eager to learn what is ahead for this affable young hero.

With a nursing background spanning some 25 years in the NHS, I have now transitioned into semi-retirement, seizing the opportunity to venture into writing.

As an author, I offer readers the enchanting experience of journeying with characters, delving into their hopes, fears, and their evolving roles. My passion lies in crafting accessible fantasy fiction, a gateway to captivating realms. Through my stories, both young and adult readers are captivated by intriguing facts and historical elements in the books.

My aim is to inspire individuals of all ages, nurturing their belief in achieving more than they imagined. In life, just like in our childhood, we undergo similar stages of growth and development.
