Willow Bloom and the Dream Keepers

EV Farrell

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?

“A vibrant message of empowerment, hope and inspiration for young people everywhere. This is an intriguing fantasy that leaves us wanting more.” Janeen Webb, The Dragon’s Child
