The Flaming Sword

By Heather L.L. FitzGerald


Sadie Larcen and her family are slowly recovering from their life-altering trek to the Tethered World. That is until their aunt arrives clutching a mysterious letter and sporting a black eye. The letter that Aunt Jules shares with the family writhes with sinister implications. A new and menacing enemy has slunk from the shadows and is conspiring to seize the most powerful piece of weaponry in the land: The Flaming Sword of Cherubythe. The sword must—at all costs—be kept from the enemies who lust for its power.

The threat extends to Sadie’s autistic brother Brock. As High King in training, he now resides in the Tethered World, within close proximity to the sword. It’s apparent that drastic measures will be required by all in order to protect what’s most important. Can Sadie once again confront her disabling fear, stare evil in the face, and walk away whole—let alone alive? How can one teenage girl and her family save a sword with the potential to start a world war? Will lines be crossed even as Sadie’s faith is tested? Sadie knows it’s going to take a lot more than strength, grit, and courage to survive.

Book Takeaway:

We are all part of a war between good and evil, but Sadie Larcen and her family experience this in a much more tangible way than most. With the addition of a second POV in this story, readers will see the schemes of the enemy unfold on different fronts in this fast paced drama. When things are darkest, a tiny spark of light shines the brightest.

Why the author wrote this book:

This is the second book in the Tethered World Chronicles. It continues to explore the idea about creatures from the Garden of Eden that are stewarded by select families on earth. In thinking about folklore around the world (pre-internet or even newspapers) I find it fascinating that so many cultures share similar stories about Dwarfs, Gnomes, or even Bigfoot! These stories reflect my creative explanation for these connections.
