a walk in the woods- Willow Bloom and the Dream Keepers by E.V. Farrell

"Loved it! Perfect for young readers wanting a relevant, uplifting book that dances between modern day and fantasy. [...] Keeping the magic alive and helping to believe. Perfect combo!" - Ami, Goodreads


Published: October 9th, 2018

Willow Bloom’s biggest challenge is to organise her thirteenth birthday party. However, a walk in the woods near her home provides some big surprises – a mystical guardian from another world, a magical forest, and the discovery that her parents are part of a secret order that protects dreams.

With the discovery comes a calling. A prophecy tells of a young one who can push back the dark forces that threaten to corrupt our hopes and dreams. Is Willow that young one? Can she take on the forces of evil, the Underlord Maliceius, and win?


Something ominous approached the planet Arn. A dark, ethereal presence spread across the cosmic sky.

As twelve golden rings appeared around the planet, each one bigger than the last, an Ancient, draped in white and gold, emerged from the outer ring. She hovered before the darkness and raised her Sceptre.

“UnderLord Maliceius, abandon this attempt to spread your vile shadow. I command it on behalf of the Ancient Realms.”

The dark ether surged forward, pulling its mass inwards to double its height. “The Ancient Realms will not stop me this time,” the UnderLord hissed.

The Ancient raised her head. “You do not frighten me, UnderLord. The Light will always prevail. You cannot succeed.” She brought her Sceptre in close and whispered “Alodin Zoinda,” and her Sceptre responded with a piercing light that radiated towards the darkness. “Retreat now or embrace the Light,” she declared.

The UnderLord Maliceius recoiled from the opposing rays. “Your efforts to stop my expansion across the universe will be futile. I will blacken the precious dreams you so faithfully protect. And I will become the Master.”

His dark mass billowed and swelled backwards as he slowly retreated from the planet Arn. An evil drone sounded from the darkness before he instantly disappeared.

As each golden ring receded, a colossal Ancient appeared and slowly they gathered themselves in a circle.

Satisfied that the UnderLord was gone, the Ancient, Varta, turned to each of them. “It has begun. We must institute the Protocol at once.”

“We must retain the integrity of dreams,” Soto declared.
“Agreed,” said Varta. “The dreams are paramount. It was only a matter of time before he returned… His nature does not allow otherwise.”

A deep sigh reverberated out into the Universe, the first in aeons.

Varta raised her Sceptre up high, initiating a discharge of violet light out into the cosmos. “It is done,” she said.
