The Golden Lantern, Book 2 in the Relics Adventure Series, 2019

Ivan Kimble, now fourteen years old, must once again venture into the mystical West Forest located in Southern England, to search for his older brother Peter, who had promised to come home. Ivan fears that something dreadful has happened to him. But it is Ivan who encounters life-threatening attacks from strange creatures and he must use his prowess and wits to survive.

Between the ratlings, the vaguers and the trolls, his troubles are just beginning. Sebastian, the spirit in the Long Dark Cloak, has his healing powers working overtime. Ivan has his hands full, struggling with sarcastic cats, flying horses, and a goddess that has his heart all aflutter. His journey is fraught with danger, mystery, and the knowledge that someone is hell-bent on destroying him.

Will Ivan leave the forest alive?

About Vicki Dawn Thomas (Fresno, California Author)

Vicki Dawn Thomas

In an earlier career, I was a freelance fashion illustrator in Los Angeles, working for both wholesale and retail fashion houses. I also taught watercolor classes to young people for over a decade.

My passion for writing and creating characters and creatures drove my love for fantasy. I wrote seven hand-written books, which I’m now rewriting and editing. The first book in the Relics Adventure series is, The Long Dark Cloak; the second book, The Golden Lantern, released in late March 2019. Book three, The King’s Scepter is nearly written and promises another exciting adventure for my protagonist, Ivan Kimble.

To help keep the characters straight during my protagonist’s dangerous journey, and since I’m also an artist, I sketched people/scenes and drew a map to guide me and my readers. The map is reproduced at the beginning of each book.

It should be no surprise that JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, is my main inspiration, as well as C.S. Lewis and Tolkien. I’m grateful to all those who have influenced and guided me on this mystical journey.
