A Shadow Falls
Song of the elves: Book One
David Charles Shepherd

A magical coin...
A tournament for the King's Blades...
A creature from the darkest nightmare...

For half-elf Kirik, this summer will bring more than just his transition from boy to man. Friendships will be tested; new alliances will be forged; lives will be lost as a shadow falls over Farsee Forest.

The hopes and dreams of Nemar, Kirik and Eidur become inextricably entwined during a stifling summer when the prince brings his tournament for a place in the King's Blades to Farsee Forest. Half-elf Kirik dreams of being a famous warrior, slaying serpents and taking on pirates along the Bridal Sea like the famous prince. Prince Nemar dreams of establishing a meritocracy to challenge his father's ailing system of patronage. Kirik's father, Councillor Eidur just dreams of growing old on his estate, watching Kirik take over the reigns of the family business.

Yet darkness lurks in the shadows, and an ancient enemy has been allowed to penetrate to the heart of elven society. Eidur knows - he has skirmished with Darklings amidst the ruins of Majora. A magical coin, taunts of the outsider elves and a creature from the darkest nightmare are portents of the end of life as they know it, as a shadow falls over the Summerlands.

So begins the Song of the Elves, an epic saga telling the fortunes of the Eidursons as they battle to save the Summerlands from an ancient curse.

Welcome to KindleBoards and congratulations on your book! (Beautiful book thread, by the way!)

Please keep in mind that KindleBoards is a Reader and Kindle Fan forum. As such, self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You haven't done anything wrong, just our standard reminder. :))

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum:,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

Hi Betsy,

Thanks for the welcome, and I appreciate the compliment on the thread. Seeing how many of these you must've seen, it's high praise indeed!

I've done my due diligence and read all the rules and regs, so I know how to keep on your good side :)

I'll be posting a thread for the second book up soon, along with the required info to get in the author thread.

Thanks for the wonderful resource, both as a reader and as someone helping out a budding writer!
