Description

This action-packed first book of a middle grade fantasy trilogy brings together magical animals, environmental destruction, and finding one's place in a world where everything is about to change.

Centuries ago, the world, Terra, was nearly destroyed by humans. As she recovered, Terra created the Guardians - a group sworn to protect her. But humans have returned to their plundering ways and Terra needs the Guardians. She calls on them only to find they have fractured - their last leader murdered years before. They need a new leader - a new Terra Protectorum - but when a young girl is chosen, outrage ensues. Questions demand answers.

Why has Terra selected a girl with no knowledge of the Guardians? Why has she chosen a human when it is the humans destroying the earth? And most importantly, why has she chosen the girl whose father murdered the last Terra Protectorum?

Filled with pulse-pounding action, otherworldly characters to root for, and a timely message about the state of our planet, The Rise of Winter soars.--Joel A. Sutherland, author of Summer's End and the Haunted Canada series

Also from Alex Lyttle: From Ant to Eagle
