Kids’ historical fantasy web book for ages 10+
Walter and the Winter Goblin
This kids’ historical fantasy web book tells the story of Walter Podevin, page to Good King Wenceslas. Walter has never seen the Forest up close. He’s heard the stories of course—of the Hazel Thicket, the First Holly, the Kind and Wicked Peoples. But he’s never seen a gnome, or an ogre, or a faun.
He doesn’t know there’s a fortress at the heart of the Forest, or that goblins once lived there and served the creature who built it: a creature from the Old Dark—the time before there was Christmas. And he certainly doesn’t know the creature has returned.
Walter’s mind is on other things: his first Christmas season as page to the king, and the new sword his parents gave him for a present.
But Walter never guessed his new life would mean faerie councils or goblin bonfires or torch-lit battles in the snow. No one, that is, except maybe the king himself…
