Many things which seem useless are magical to those who know how to use them…
Waet Tree Village has family roots and heritage as ancient as the silver trees themselves. Chassy, Nita and Andrev are expected remain here, living out traditional lives until they eventually die from lack of excitement.
One summer day, their idyllic lives start to unravel, when a freaky creature straight out of a legend arrives spouting prophecies about the destruction of their village. Then an old wizard sends them on a quest with a bunch of useless gifts, but he DIES before even telling them where to go.
Retrieve the Amulet of Hope or all is lost! That’s all they know; that’s all anyone can tell them.
So they set off in pursuit of this mysterious amulet, each for his or her own reason. They learn that the world outside of Waet Tree Village is nothing like the storybooks they grew up with, and the Amulet of Hope is only the beginning of their adventures.
I’m Chris Africa, a mom, wife, author and project manager living in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Someone told me once that I have a superhero name, and I love that description so much that I repeat it as often as possible. (Superhero Name.)
It used to be that the most interesting thing about me was my place of birth, a U.S. Army hospital in Frankfurt, Germany. I even have a super-cool birth certificate with a ribbon and a seal on it which I used to show people sometimes, before I became paranoid about identity theft. So I’m very happy to now have a SUPERHERO NAME.
I also have a Political Science degree, decades of web project management experience, and a successful job at a digital agency. I live in Michigan with my husband, Mike; daughter, Olivia; cats Ninja and Artemis; and Harvey the dog.
