Piper by G. Gene Black
Genre: Fiction / Fairy Tales, Folk Tales, Legends & Mythology
The author presents his debut fantasy where Timothy Rags, a modern-day detective, falls in love with the past. In Thymes, c.1712, he discovers the tale of Piper and Kaprina who grow up in the wild as young orphans. There's a sibling relationship that's heartfelt with tragedy, conquest and a spirit we all cherish. Intended for a family audience, young and old. The book's divided into three acts, illustrated with black-and-white drawings, and has an index of songs included for easy reference.
The story is set during the golden age of piracy, a time when the advent of the printing press created a society where those who controlled stories possessed great wisdom and power over others.
In the first act, the printing of storytelling had come to the countryside and village of Thymes, where the Old Crow is the antagonist. She's a witch turned pirate with an all-seeing-eye beneath a black eye patch, the most feared pirate of all time, and on a quest for printed stories for her Book of Mischief. She's intriguing and powerful as she leads an army of fierce giant buzzards. The witch and mythical creatures bring alive worlds we've all known to exist.
Filled with action, Piper's music is magical as the young orphans encounter trouble at every turn on their journey to Winkenstein. Conflict brews in a colorful final act as the Old Crow, thought to have been defeated and exiled, hatches a scheme where there can be No More Stories.
The idea for the Piper story was seeded in July of 2009 by, StoryStalker
