Book Launch: Box of Delights Bookstore
466 Main Street, Wolfville
Borealis Press invites you to help celebrate the release of “The Caves of Castleguard”, Book One in the Canadian fantasy trilogy: “Tales of the Shining Mountains” by Heather Pyrcz. Please join us for a talk, slideshow, and reading on December 15 from 7pm-8pm at the Box of Delights Bookstore in Wolfville.
The story follows the lives of The Keepers, a community of grizzly bears bred for life in the high reaches of the Shining Mountains, and the icefield they encircle, in order to protect a mysterious substance that has lain hidden underneath the ice for millennia. It is 1890, and the animals of the Shining Mountains are facing difficulties caused by an influx of humans. The ancient traditions of Mount Cathedral, home of The Keepers, are at risk. Their mountain Corridor, so necessary for all the animals’ survival, is threatened. Inexplicably, too many inhabitants of the area are mysteriously disappearing. When Grundel, their leader, investigates, a darker character appears: SaMäel, Lord of Abadon, fallen angel and troublemaker extraordinaire. Can Grundel and his allies outsmart the greatest of deceivers in order to save the mountains and their way of life from oblivion?
