Quarter Castle Publishing announced the paperback and eBook release of the second novel in the The Castle Keepers Series, Scattered Stones by Canadian author Diane Lynn McGyver.

Her many articles on topics such as gardening, history, genealogy, horses, homesteading and writing have appeared in thousands of publications since 1998. Her genealogy column Roots to the Past appears in several newspapers in Atlantic Canada.
“This is the best story I’ve written to date,” said McGyver. “After living with these characters for more than a dozen years, I know them. I know their weaknesses, strengths, loves and fears. Trekking through Ath-o’Lea has never been more fun or more dangerous. I poured my heart and soul into this story, and I am rewarded with a tale I love to read. I hope others enjoy reading it as much. But I have a secret I’ll share with you today. As much as I love Scattered Stones, I think I’m going to love Revelation Stones more.”
Scattered Stones is a traditional epic fantasy. It’s the perfect novel to read at the beach, under a tree or in your castle.
Story Summary: Bronwyn Darrow is desperate to rescue his daughter Isla from Blackvale Castle. For five long years, he’s travelled Ath-o’Lea searching for her, but the formidable castle remains elusive. He’s surrendered his coveted sergeant’s position at Aruam Castle, but he’s willing to sacrifice everything to bring Isla home, including his honour. If he fails, his innocent little girl will face a lifetime of slavery.
When Bronwyn breaks into Tigh Na Mare Castle, he encounters two siblings who vow to help him on his quest to save his daughter. They prove to be more loyal to Bronwyn and Aruam Castle than he first realises. Together, they embark on a journey that takes them far from home and down winding mountain trails where their actions set in motion the unravelling of an ancient legend that threatens the lives of all dwarfs.
