It’s always exciting to announce a new publication day! December 1, 2022, marked the release of Catacombia: Keepers of the Flame, the third novel in my fantasy trilogy for young readers, written under the pseudonym R.L. Ferguson. Out just in time for Christmas, the book concludes the rip-roaring adventures of Sam, a teenager who is unexpectedly plunged into a hidden underground realm, and his Catacombian friend Ella.
Here’s the blurb for the final volume in the Catacombia trilogy:
Far below the surface of the Earth lies an ancient city of magic and wonder. This is Catacombia, where a dark secret lies slumbering.
Once again, Sam and Ella have proved themselves able to thwart the plans of the power-hungry demon Grimorga. But their victory came at a cost. Chaos and insecurity are now spreading throughout Catacombia. To make matters worse, this struggle for supremacy over the underground city is threatening to spill over to the upper world. The only ones who can help are the mysterious Keepers of the Flame. However, nobody seems to know who these enigmatic people are … or where to find them.
First publication is in German translation by Ravensburger, under the title Catacombia: Hüter der Flamme.
