Chandlefort: In the Shadow of the Bear is the fun sequel to Clovermead, the story of 12-year-old Clovermead Wickward who discovers she is really Lady Melisande Cindertallow, the sovereign of Chandlefort.In her latest adventure, Clovermead learns to adjust to her new life as a Lady while navigating the difficulties of being a family in power. Not all new friends can be trusted and nobody is exactly who they seem. When her mother’s life is suddenly in grave danger, Clovermead must go on an epic quest to save her. Narrated with childlike enthusiasm and clarity by Kim McKean, this is an exciting journey that young adventurous listeners like Cloverfield will surely appreciate.
It has been just months since Clovermead Wickward discovered that she is really Demoiselle Cerelune Cindertallow - daughter of Lady Melisande Cindertallow, the sovereign of Chandlefort - and that the man she had called Father all her life was actually an embittered servant who stole her away when she was a baby. Since then, she has learned that she doesn't wholly care for life inside the walls of Chandlefort, and that she doesn't much like her mother's expectations for how a Demoiselle should behave - especially the bit about not changing shape anymore. When you can turn into a bear, being forced to stay human can be deadly dull.
Now Clovermead must confront dangerous secrets from her family's troubled past when a mysterious stranger appears in Chandlefort. Perhaps he is the old friend of Clovermead's real father, as he claims to be - or perhaps an old enemy of the Cindertallows who seeks a final revenge. When Clovermead unintentionally puts her mother's life in mortal peril, her only chance to make amends and save the mother she has just begun to know is to set off on a dangerous journey to a distant abbey. The life of her mother, the salvation of Chandlefort, and the freedom of the bears enslaved by the overwhelming power of Lord Ursus all depend on Clovermead.
In this intense and compelling sequel to Clovermead, David Randall explores the strength of love, courage, and forgiveness in the battle of good and evil.
