Indie author caps off fantasy trilogy

Stratford Gazette

Michelle Maisonville special to the Gazette

Stratford indie author Yvonne Hertzberger is holding a book launch for the third and final novel in her Earth Pendulum trilogy, The Dreamt Child.

The launch will be held at the Falstaff Family Centre, 35 Waterloo St. N., on Jan. 18 from 3- 6 p.m.

The third and final volume of the trilogy picks up with Liannis, seer for the goddess Earth, after a winter resting in semi-trance, alone in a cabin in the woods. According to the book's synopsis, she can no longer deny the meaning of her recurring dream. She must join with Merrist, her devoted hired man, and bear a child – one with great gifts.

But the people resist the changes, bringing danger to the pair and strife to the lands. Both Liannis and Merrist must face tests, sometimes without each other, to fulfill their destiny and bring The Dreamt Child forth into safety. They must succeed if they are to initiate the new era of peace and balance so desperately needed.

The Earth Pendulum trilogy is what Hertzberger calls “high fantasy,” mixing both romance and adventure. Unlike other popular fantasy series like Harry Potter, the trilogy contains no mythical creatures or magical spells, and is intended for a more adult audience.

“(My books) appeal to people who like to read about strong characters,” she adds, noting readers’ reactions to Klast, the main character in the first novel, Back from Chaos, was that “men admire him, women fall in love with him.”

The trilogy is available locally at The Wee Book & Photo Shop and Fanfare Books, as well as online on Amazon and Smashwords.

As for what’s next for Hertzberger, another novel is already in the works.

“Writing’s really gotten into my blood, I don’t think I’ll be able to stop,” she says.
