New Release: The Stealthcat War

IFWG is excited to announce the world-wide release of Paula Boer‘s YA novel, The Stealthcat War, book 2 in her The Equinora Chronicles. “We are proud to release book 2,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG, “as it continues the story begun in The Bloodwolf War, and adds to the series’ wonderful world-building, in a universe where horses are sentient beings and unicorns absolutely exist.” The cover is masterfully rendered and designed by Steve Santiago.

When unnatural wildfires ravage the prairies, many of the horse herds and human clans are burnt. Precious warmblood mares disappear and mysterious stealthcats are killing foals, forcing a dying stallion to seek help from the guardian unicorns.

Following a confusing prophecy that threatens the whole world, Mystery, the youngest unicorn, is sent to solve the problem. But being of horse parents, Mystery is filled with doubt and scared he has no power. Nevertheless, accompanied by Laila, a young woman, and Meda, her healer dragon, he determines to confront whatever evil is behind the devastation.

The Stealthcat War is available now in all good print and ebook stores and online stores.

New Release: The Bloodwolf War by Paula Boer

IFWG is very pleased to announce the release of Paula Boer‘s first instalment in her Equinora Chronicles, The Bloodwolf War. “It’s wonderful to have Boer contribute such an imaginative and original work to our Young Adult catalogue,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director IFWG, “and she also has the distinction of having added to three of our readership age groups – adult, young adult, and middle grade/young teen. Well done, Paula!”

Kudos to Steve Santiago for his vivid cover art and design.

Equinora, the world where horses live in harmony with people, is in trouble. The six unicorn guardians created by the Goddess have abandoned their roles and vicious bloodwolves rampage across the land, massacring the herds and villagers.

Fleet, a young stallion without a territory, dreams of galloping with other horses and building a herd of his own. But an attack by a bloodwolf leaves him poisoned and alone. Driven by despair and a promise to fulfil his dying dam’s vision, Fleet sets out to discover how to vanquish the bloodwolves. The only help the renegade unicorns provide is to insist Fleet follow a prophecy to confront the villainous Shadow, an equine so powerful that the Goddess imprisoned him to prevent him destroying her realm.

Accompanied by Yuma, a young man desperate to escape his destiny, and Tatuk, a tiny dragon, Fleet seeks Shadow and a cure for the bloodwolf poison. But even as he begins to fear the selfish unicorns have sent him to his death, he discovers a secret that might mean he has a chance to save all horses and people from annihilation.

The Bloodwolf War is now available in ebook and print formats, in all good online and bricks and mortar stores.

New Book Signing: The Equinora Chronicles by Paula Boer

We are very pleased to announce the acquisition of the YA novel series, The Equinora Chronicles, by Paula Boer. Paula is one of our first authors, having penned the highly successful Brumbies series, and she returns with her love of horse adventures, but now with a very strong speculative fiction streak. This ticks two major boxes of IFWG’s fields of interest, aside from Boer’s great storytelling ability.

In Book 1 of the series, The Bloodwolf War, Fleet, a young stallion, dreams of running with other horses and building his own herd. But when the guardian unicorns of Equinora abandon their goddess-given roles, bloodwolves rampage the land and Fleet is poisoned.

The Bloodwolf War will be released late in the second quarter of 2019.
