Destiny and Courage Collide – in Cinematic New Fantasy Novel
“Beautiful and captivating” Alex, Breakaway Reviewers
“Croucher Rose has given us a sparkling debut” Daniel Casey, Misanthropester
“Magical” Peter Donnelly, The Reading Desk
‘Avaland’ embroils readers in the life of a young, seemingly-ordinary village girl, as she is pulled into a magical world where Guardian status awaits. However, first, every bone in her body and every synapses of her mind will be tested through a series of challenges; a quest that will help her discover who she really is. It’s a narrative of high adventure and one that will grab the attention of any fan of Harry Potter or The Hunger Games.
The literary world may only just be hearing the name Amy Croucher Rose for the first time, but this bold and formidable British author is firmly here to stay – storming onto the scene with a fantasy novel that could easily rival any bestseller or Hollywood movie.
‘Avaland’ fuses its fantastical, quest-driven storyline with a serious reminder of how resilient the human spirit really is.
“While my story is totally new and unique, it was written for the same audience who have fallen in love with things like Harry Potter and the myriad of other new-style fantasy novels out there,” explains the author. “It’s an adventure that sees our young heroine get tested in more ways than she could ever imagine but, in the process, come out a stronger and more capable person.” Continuing, “It’s actually not all fantasy when you think about it; we all have greatness within us, and it often only manifests after we have overcome adversity. I hope my readers will take inspiration from Charlotte and consider moving out of their own comfort zones…since greatness awaits them.''
