Flight of the SkyCricket
In this first volume of The Relics of Errus, Flight of the SkyCricket by Gordon Greenhill, three sisters—Eli, Anna, and Rose Hoover—stumble through a window in the wine cellar of an old Victorian house and find themselves in Errus, a world where natural disasters give birth to mythological creatures—some harmless, some horrific. Caught up in a quest involving impassable deserts, dangerous jungles, dark mountainous caverns, and a menagerie of dwarves, fairies, knights, and quirky scientists, they search for the mythical Well of the sea goddess Therra, which seems to be their only way home.
Trapped in a world that births fairies from windstorms and dwarves from earthquakes, everything rests on finding the lost well. That is, if it even exists. Both the pious and skeptic make their case along the way, but belief may not always be something you choose—sometimes it is something that happens to you.
