The Magical Falcon 1 - The Mad SorceressAuthor: Peter Gotthardt Narrator: Jennifer Wagstaffe Audiobook and E-book
"The Mad Sorceress" is the first part in "The Magical Falcon" series. Sigurd, Sandra, and Monika are enjoying their summer vacation, playing like any other children. Little do they know that soon their life is about to be changed forever. A magical prince appears before them, and takes them to a most extraordinary adventure, where magic and fantastical episodes reign supreme. But when one of the children suffers at the hands of an evil sorceress, things are about to get ugly. Action-packed and definitely attention-grabbing, it is a worthy fantasy read for children.
In "The Magical Falcon", Peter Gotthardt moves from his preferred and rich elven themes and moves to the realm of the magical. Of course, magic is an important element in his entire work, but here he praises it enormously. It follows the adventures of three children, whose quite ordinary lives are turned upside down by the appearance of Prince Carvallo, who takes them to a magical land.
