Awkward thirteen-year-old Zephyr Spheres has a pretty grim and mundane existence. She takes orders from her foster mother, Mrs. Krumple, and is ridiculed at school by a bully and wealthy classmate, Trinda Temple. That is until Zephyr is transported to Danus, the world of magic, and taken to the mystical kingdom of Crystotopia. Together, with a cast of unique and memorable characters, including the emotional dwarven nursemaid, Helga, the talking falcon, Scorn, and the temperamental fire wizard, Cor, Zephyr uncovers the secrets of her past. And she harnesses the power of a legendary sword to eventually help save the kingdom from the hands of the sinister Dark Forces, as well as rescue her father, the King of Crystotopia.
Myles B. Hibbett was born on February 5,1983 and currently lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is an avid fan and reader of children’s fantasy. Also, Myles has been inspired to write by a love of fairytales, and he hopes to influence children to share the same love of fairytales and fantasy that he does. Myles was guided to create Zephyr Spheres by the need for girls to be motivated by female heroines-heroes, who encounter adventure, discover the power of love, and who ultimately triumph over evil. Zephyr Spheres and the Sword of Wonders is the first of five books in the Zephyr Spheres series. The next set of Zephyr’s endeavors will be, Zephyr Spheres and the Lost Spell, Zephyr Spheres and Astra’s Necklace, Zephyr Spheres and the Silver Unicorn, and Zephyr Spheres and the Crystal Labyrinth.
