Jen has settled into a peaceful life when a terrifying event awakens old fears—of being homeless and alone, of a danger horrible enough to destroy her family and shatter her world forever. She is certain that Naryfel, a shadowy figure from her past, has returned and is concentrating the full force of her hate on Jen's family. But how will she strike? A knife in the dark? An attack from her legions? Or with the dark arts and twisted creatures she commands with sinister cunning? Wyndano's Cloak may be Jen's only hope. If she can only trust that she has what it takes to use it. A tale of madness, friendship, and courage, Wyndano's Cloak reveals the transformative power of love and forgiveness, and the terrible consequences of denying who you really are.

About the Author

A. R. Silverberry, the pen name of Peter Allan Adler, holds a B.A. in music and a Ph.D. in psychology. Ever feeling the call for a creative life, he's a watercolorist, pianist, and composer. Silverberry's family is filled with successful writers, actors, artists, and musicians. He remembers being fascinated at an early age as his father explained how to create a plot by throwing together characters with opposing motives. Before he was old enough to write, he stole away with his mother to dictate a story. The love for fantasy was stimulated by a babysitter who, with a seemingly endless supply of Oz books, read him to sleep. Fairy tales, Tolkien, and the spine-tingling tales of Robert E. Howard sealed the deal. Silverberry has been a licensed psychologist since 1991, and continues to balance his clinical practice with writing. Wyndano's Cloak is his first novel.
