RELEASE BLITZ & #GIVEAWAY - Marella (Wraidd Elfennol #0.5) by Morgan Sheppard
Young Adult, Fantasy, Novella
Marella has grown up on the island of Wraidd Elfennol, where humans, animals and the very Elements live in harmony together.
Since she was a youngling, the draw towards Water has always been the strongest. It is one of the reasons Marella wants nothing more than for that Element to be her Primary, so she can become a Water Weaver, gifted in hydromancy. Each youngling goes to the main village of Charon for the Test to find out which of the Elements they are strongest in, which in turn, will determine their futures.
Marella’s best friend since childhood, Daren, is also going for his Test. They have been best friends since childhood, getting into many adventures together, as their families spend rest days together.
Yet when the day comes where their fates will be decided, doubts and insecurities creep into Marella’s mind. What happens when you don’t get what you wish for? And what happens if you do? At this time of their lives, when their paths are about to take Marella and Daren to different places, will they get what they wish for?

She sat down on one of the tree stumps by the lake. She had used this as her seat for so long that Daren was positive it matched the shape of her posterior. Marella huddled up into her jacket and blew on her cold hands, as she wished that she’d brought some gloves with her. Instead, they were warm and snug upstairs in her bedroom. She put her hands in the pockets at the side of the jacket and hunched forwards over her knees. As Marella stared out towards the centre of the lake, she felt a stillness enter her soul. No matter what her strongest Element turned out to be, this lake would still be hers, inasmuch as it was anybody’s.
She sat there and enjoyed the sounds that surrounded her. Marella watched the sky as it changed colours. It looked promising for the day ahead, as there were already hints of blue showing, with a high, wispy cloud bank she knew would burn away in the morning sunshine. She heard the birds in the trees, singing their morning chorus; the waves as they lapped the shore, and even the wind as it rustled gently through the trees, resplendent with their new crown of leaves. She immersed herself into the sights and sounds that were part of the lives of those who lived in and around the lake, and knew herself to be blessed for no other reason than she was part of it on that particular morning.
