Nemesis and the Fairy of Pure Heart
by Ashley Du Toit

A Treasure Hunt For The Pure Hearted!

Humans have long lived in a world surrounded by magic, though they do not know it. An enchanted magical world surrounds the human mortal world, it is a world divided into twelve distinct realms, and it is home to all immortal and magical beings.

Bella, the Fairy of Pure Heart has wandered into the mortal world, she has made friends with the human Prince Arthur, and she has led him into the immortal world of magic. All of which is forbidden. Nemesis, the dragon who rules all twelve realms of the immortal realm, has stolen the Prince Arthur as punishment for this action.

Bella, Fairy of Pure Heart, is heart broken. Nemesis is strong and powerful and rescuing Prince Arthur from Nemesis will not be easy. But despite her fear, and the difficulty involved, Bella has to try.

An impossible task has been set before Bella. The Great Dragon's Hunt must be undertaken, a treasure hunt for five tokens. These tokens are a representation of the trials and dangers Bella must overcome to prove her worth. Bella must display friendship, trust, assistance, bravery, truth, and of cause a pure heart in order to win back her prince. But will it be enough?

With the help of her friend Teague the butterfly, Bella travels through the twelve realms of the immortal realm to hunt down the tokens need. Along the way meeting, trolls, pixies, witches, werewolves, elfins, water spirits, goblins, leprechauns and nuffins. But her greatest challenge will be in her meeting Nemesis the dragon himself.

It is a fun story of friendship and bravery that will entertain and delight many children. The adventure continues in book two, Nemesis and the Troll King, which will be available from March 2010.
