Stian is an excellent hunter and tracker, but regular village life is suddenly disrupted when the Guardians, who protect the entire kingdom, stop in to ask for his assistance.
Both Stian and his fiancée, the prettiest and nicest girl in the village, understand that by helping the Guardians they could get the much-coveted support for their relationship that they’ve been after.
But a simple tracking and hunting trip turns out to be much longer, and much more complicated than Stian anticipated. In order to be successful, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery in the wilderness that turns into the adventure of a lifetime. Along the way, he’ll discover that things aren’t always what they seem at first, and some childhood fairy tales weren’t fairy tales at all….
The Guardians is book one of The Hidden Heritage, a series about courage, betrayal and love in a magical world of elves and trolls.



Derek Palmer

Derek Palmer is a pseudonym of a writer who has been writing for years - all kind of technical documentation nobody really wants to read and with jargon most of the people do not even try to understand. Doing that kind of work left him a huge surplus of words that could not be used at work. Those words first accumulated and then started to overflow after filling the author's head. When the author was no more able to store those words, he needed to start writing them out; first anonymously to some shady network places, being very careful because of the power of those uncontrollable words. Later on, with some help from other writers he has learned to control some of his idioms, phrases and expressions and as a result there will some books coming out this way.
