|Thin Time, Book One in my Taskbearer Series|
In the Shropshire village of Tong, a bad tempered tomb dog called Fymm makes a mistake and chooses the wrong girl to be Task Bearer. Chased by gargoyles, Alice reaches the Green Lady’s cottage, receives the first of her three gifts, and learns that she must enter the Other World at Thin Time. Her task is to find the Green Man, bring back the New Year seeds before midnight, and prevent the world from dying. With her small stepbrother Thomas, Ratatosk the squirrel, Bridd the singing cockerel, and Fymm by her side, she sets out on her dangerous quest. Using the skipping rhyme password to enter the door into The Tree of Life, she travels into the Other World, knowing that she must overcome many obstacles, face the fury of Nidhogg the Snake-Dragon, and bring back the seeds before Thin Time ends at midnight. But does she have the one thing that will protect her in the Other World, a loving heart? For without this, she will never return, and the treasure, whatever it is, shall never be hers.
