*~Book Tour: The Wood-Fairies of Estraelia~*

When Elias of Elderberry introduces his best friend Jaron Finley to his magical world of fairies and castles, wizards and yōkai shape-shifters, will Jaron ever want to go back to his dull world of school and homework, especially after meeting Elieli, the fairy princess of Estraelia? It’s doubtful, but he must—the mortal that he is. Will Elias have to alter his memory and erase all that his friend has seen, or will Jaron be able to keep the secret that Elias Rey—a sophomore at PVHS, is a wizard and the youngest heir of Elderberry?

Held captive by evil wraiths in the dungeons of Sirusas, Elias’s older brother Saulen struggles with remembering who he is. How will the sons of Elderberry battle the dark forces of sorcery and rescue him?
And finally, when Adalee trips and falls by a nest abandoned from a Swypht Dragon of Ural, she takes an egg, knowing it has little chance to survive on its own. How will she keep it hidden in the non-dragon fairy kingdom of Estraelia? And why should she?

Elias of Elderberry is a truly marvelous book! The action, concept, and mysteries contained in this novel are intensely compelling and exciting. Not satisfied with simply writing an entertaining story, Sneed fills the pages with lessons about temptation, addiction, and the morals of right versus wrong. - R.L. Drembic

The Sons of Elderberry! Book One, Elias of Elderberry, was fantastic! I am eager to read the continuing sequels. Do any of us really know who we are and what our real worth is? Fifteen-year-old Elias was soon to discover things beyond his wildest imagination. This is about present day with regular school attendance, yet also, time travel with castles, dungeons, dragons and more! There were many characters well-defined and realistic. Also, the scenes were portrayed very well so the reader was able to easily picture them occurring. My Review of this book offers a Five Stars rating. - LAWonder10


Author Theresa Sneed graduated cum laude with a BA in education, and though she loves teaching, she is currently taking a break from it to pursue a writing career. 

Her books are unique; each story will take you to places you have never imagined before. She writes across four genres—mystery and suspense, fantasy, historical fiction/time travel, and realistic paranormal. All of Theresa’s books have elements of sweet romance, and while none of her books have profanity or sexually explicit scenes, each book is intriguing and white-knuckle intense—the kind you can’t put down.

The No Angel series is the story about a guardian angel with an attitude, and the ever present, but misunderstood spirit world.  There are four published books in the series with many more to come. Book one is called Angel with an Attitude, book two – Earthbound Angel, book three – Destiny’s Angel, and book four – Earth Angel.

The Sons of Elderberry series has two books out called Elias of Elderberry, and The Wood Fairies of Estraelia. Harry-Potterish—with wizards, fairies, elves, pixies, yōkai shapeshifters, and dragons, this book has it all! Theresa anticipates another three to five books to finish that series.    

Escape is the story of a 15 year old girl abducted by a corrupt sheriff in the 70’s. He keeps her captive in his cellar for five years until she escapes with his truck and his young daughter. Escape is book one in a three book series.

Salem Witch Haunt was intended to be a stand-alone book, until the shocking ending made it apparent that her characters were not finished telling their story. As the ninth great granddaughter of one of the women hanged as a witch in Salem, Theresa has a vested interest in this epic time-travel. Thoroughly researched, all interactions with real people from that era are based on primary sources—the trial scene with Susannah Martin is taken from Reverend Samuel Parris’s transcript verbatim.

Adalee dropped down to one knee. “Oh, so you do like them after all!” She petted its small head while it cooed softly.
Aydon’s mouth fell open. “W-what?” He fell back a step. “But that’s … that’s a Swypht Dragon of Ural, I’m sure of it!” He looked down at the broken pieces of eggshell in his hand and drew in a breath. “H-how did … w-what?” The dragon stayed hidden behind Adalee. “Wow.” He got down on his knees and leaned toward it. Reaching for the young dragon, he cautiously let it sniff his fingers. “Amazing!”
“Yeah, huh?”
Aydon sat back on his legs. “You did this?” He gestured to the dragon that had come around in front of her and now leaned against her leg. He shook his head. “I can’t believe this, Adalee.” He looked up at her. “Where did you find the egg? I’ve never heard of a mother laying her eggs anywhere but inside the mountain.”
“Um …” She picked at her fingernail. “Well …” 
“Wait!” Aydon gasped. “The dragon we lost today—that’s hers! Adalee, how did you get it?”
She sat on the ground. Pulling him down beside her, she explained how she had tripped and fallen beside the abandoned nest in the dragon hatchery. “You said they probably wouldn’t hatch anyhow.” She truly felt bad. “So, I … just took it.” She wiped a tear from her eye. “I’m sorry.”
“You shouldn’t be sorry for saving—h-hatching an abandoned dragon egg!” He looked at her in awe. “Do you realize how amazing that is?” All at once, he stopped, and his eyes widened. “Oh, hold on, I almost forgot—Queen Faelyn asked me to find you.” He still looked at her awestruck, and that unnerved Adalee.
She took a step back. “Oh?” Earlier that day, Queen Faelyn had kissed her fingers then touched the bulge in her bag where Adalee had hidden the egg.  I knew it—she knows I took the egg. “Eeks.” Her shoulders fell forward. “Well, I guess she wants the dragon.” With a deep sigh, she stood and scooped the small dragon up in her hands. “Come on, Aydon.” They took off toward Eldervale.
The young dragon curled up in the palm of her hands. Within seconds, it fell asleep, snoring gently, with an occasional snort. Right before the footbridge over the wide river, Aydon stopped. He gestured for Adalee to keep going. 
“Aren’t you coming with me?” she asked, with a nervous laugh.
“No. I want to practice a bit before dragon-riding training.”
Her eyes filled with envy. “Lucky.”
“Yeah,” he said, nodding. He whistled, and his dragon swooped down from a low hanging branch across the river, her bright red and orange scales shimmering in the afternoon sun.
“Whoa! I didn’t see her there!” Adalee squinted. The tree had several dragons perched in its wide canopy, hidden by thick, green foliage. “Awesome!”
Aydon laughed. “Hello, Enya,” he said scratching the side of his dragon’s neck. Well, I’ll see you later, Adalee.” He swung his leg over Enya’s back, leaned in, and cried, “Up!” She alighted as graceful as a butterfly, but then took off like a rocket. 
Adalee watched him fly away and then turned toward the bridge. The little dragon wiggled in her hands, and she looked sadly down at it. You’re so cute! She sighed, then slipped the dragon into her satchel, leaving the flap open for airflow. Well, here goes.
