Nancy Jeanabout this book: Through the Faery Ring is the second book in a series of the Tulip Sisters: four feary sisters born (from tulips, of course) at the exact same moment. The main characters: Etaura, the earth faery, Aiara the air faery, Fierre the fire faery and Wyshari, the water faery each reflect the appearance and magical powers of their element. Anyone who has a reverence for nature, the symbolism of the elements, and an interest in magical ideas will appreciate the themes woven throughout the book.
Book two takes the reader to the faery gathering spot of Midori hina, located in Japan. There, a threat from a mysterious event involving the Ancient Spheres of Energy grows greater. Prophecy dictates that the Tulip Sisters must alter this fate, and they are called upon to travel across the Earth to do so. The Tulip Sisters' world gets expanded with new magical creatures, Trooping Faeries, human twins with a special connection, and the oldest living faeries: The Elders. The story has action, suspense, humor, a twist that will keep the reader engaged and interested until the end.
Even though it takes place in the magical astral realm, I made sure my details about location, culture, and human psychology were well-researched. I believe accurate details allow the reader to engage more with a story, and make for a richer experience overall. My years of interest and study of all things magical really helped, along with many nature documentaries, a psychology degree, and a field trip to the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens (and Google of course).
I try to keep in mind the amazing job J.K. Rowling did with building the Harry Potter Series; I heard she took years planning the outlines of all the books before she started writing the story itself. In the Tulip Sister series, I made sure to build on previous themes and events, and to plant enough seeds that will flower in the future books.
The reader may recognize that the title "Through the Faery Ring" is also an idea that comes up a few times in the story. The cover for this book continues with the theme of the series; faery wing in the forefront and Mt. Fuji, and Japanese scenery in the background. The Tulip Sisters all share a sparkling tribal design that spans from the top to bottom of their wings and that, of course, needed to be conveyed.
I look forward to welcoming back my readers from book one, and having more readers join the Tulip Sisters for their upcoming adventures.
