Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The Persephane Pendrake Chronicles is a planned, nine book, three trilogy series.  Book One is The Cimaruta.

Book Two is The Cauldron of Ceridwen and is also available here on Amazon.

The series starts with Persephane and her 'partner-in-crime' Thaddeus at almost thirteen and thirteen years old, the first step in maturity for Magical Folk, being told of their mutual mission.

Melanthios, a dark and black-hearted witch is attempting to collect 9 magical objects, which if she is successful will establish her as the "All Powerful One" and enable her to reign over our world, inflicting misery and evil on all. 

The first book introduced our heroine and hero and their familiars, Benson a dragonfly with serious attitude and P-C and lovable, but far from brave dragon.

They are aided by Fawna the fairy, Randy and Delecta, the satyr and nymph, Vadoma, the very talented scrying gypsy and Murph, a comical, gay vampire.

Book Two begins as the kids are turning seventeen and will add twists such as multi-verses, underground communities, love triangles, and more levels of treachery to the already entangles plot.

About the Author

It says on the back of the first book of The Persephane Pendrake Chronicles: "About Lady Ellen - Weaving and scribing of the eight remaining tomes continues in Lady Ellen's remote witch's hut...on her tiny piece of Ontario's Cambrian Shield" ...and indeed that's where the series began. After more than 3 decades as an alternative health care practitioner, I finally managed to start devoting some serious time to my secret love--fantasy fiction. I've always loved fantasy, magic and mythical kingdoms. We home-schooled our kids and lived on a 100 acre farm..which had about twenty-five acres in forest. We'd make up stories and adventures..lots of fairies, witches, wizards, etc. Now, all these years later, I've started on my nine-book, three trilogy magical series...The Persephane Pendrake Chronicles and have just re-published the first book "The Persephane Pendrake Chronicles-One-The Cimaruta.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the first of the Persephane series - in fact, I couldn't put it down and have been waiting for book #2 since last summer.....

I love that there's so much truth to the "magic" in the book - with references to herbal remedies and naturopathic medicine... it felt so real - like there could be a world in our own that we don't even know about - and it brought me back to when I was young, and I wanted to lay down on a blanket in the yard with my legs kicked up and let go of all the "adult" in me - and believe in magic again!!

I just hope the next books comes out soon!!! I'll be first in line to buy it! :)

This book of fantasy and magic was a pure delight. You found yourself identifying with the characters. It's always a pleasure to read something that is well written. The authour is an authority on herbal and natural medicine. Therefore the facts are first hand. It's fun to transport yourself into a world of makebelieve. Can't wait for more from Lady Ellen. Pick yourself up a copy of this good read. You won't be disappointed.

I really enjoyed this book. It had all the elements of fantasy, magic, adventure, good versus evil, humor, and wonderful characters.
I sent a copy of this book to my 15 year old grandaughter when it first came out. She loved it and is waiting for the second book.
I think if you love fantasy and magic, this book sweeps across the generations. I loved it, and I am well over 40 years old!!!

A schooled fantasy hand, compelling and engaging verbiage, detailed settings that bring me there, and a truly fascinating adventure. If you're a lover of Fantasy Fiction series, then do yourself a favor and check out the preview. If you check out the author's bio page as well, you'll read that she created this world through her own environment, and around kids. This story made me feel at home, and yet in an estranged land. This author helped me revisit some of the feelings I experienced alone in the woods as a child with an overactive imagination. Great delivery, fabulous title, and great artwork on the cover to boot. I'll be keeping my eye on this series for sure.
