He believes that he will be able to prevent the razing of Hickory Flats farm and forest if only he can find Christmas spirit -- as he conspires with his friend John the cat to overcome new obstacles.

UNIQUE RELEASE INTRODUCES A NEW PLAYER IN THE WORLD OF FANTASY CREATURES…ONE THAT APPEALS TO BOTH TEENS AND WOMEN

“You may have met one without even noticing. You may have kissed one and been disappointed that he or she never called you. They may have been Arash.”

Description: Author Elke Schuster is addicted to creating new worlds and settings. When she woke one morning with a particular fantasy story in mind, she knew she needed some special creatures to go along with it. Fairies? No. Vampires? Overdone. When a writer friend suggested that angels were the ‘new’ vampires she mulled it over but decided to introduce a new player in the world of fantasy creatures: the Arash, descendants of the stars whose name means ‘bright.’ More human than vampires, but powerful enough to be alluring, Schuster made them the “stars” of her newest release Arash, Vol. 1, Shadow Hunt, the first in a four-book series. Livia is the black sheep of her family, self-conscious and underachieving. That is, until she meets her new friends: the exuberant Natalie, her brother Rupert, the sculptor, intelligent librarian Will, stunning interior designer Ruth, and arrogant horse breeder Cassius. The group of mismatched friends makes Livia feel as if she may fit in somewhere for the first time in her life. Then she begins to suspect that her so-called friends are not who they claim to be. They hold a secret that could change Livia’s life forever.
