Moon Chase - a fantasy adventure by Cathy Farr


Moon Chase is set in the medieval land of Thesk.  Looked down on by two moons, the people are protected by giant Fellhounds: fiercely loyal, brave, and sometimes a bit accident prone.  Moon Chase is a fast paced adventure about teenager Wil Calloway who finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time and is accused of a crime that he didn't commit.  To prove his innocence Wil is sent to join a hunt – the Moon Chase – for the deadly Wraithe Wolves that threaten the livelihoods of the villagers.   On the face of it this sounds easy enough to Wil, especially if he is to be accompanied by the huge Fellhounds.  But as he learns more about the Moon Chase from the mysterious Lady √Članor and her fiery sister, Tally, Wil soon realises that proving his innocence is going to be the least of his challenges!


Cathy Farr has always loved stories; listening to them, reading them and writing them – especially anything fantastical with a medieval feel. In fact, in a past life she is sure she lived in a castle, walking the corridors in long dresses protected by devoted Irish Wolfhounds, practicing the odd bit of witchcraft… she's sure she did!  You see, apart from her love of fantasy adventures and all things castle-related, she has also always loved Irish Wolfhounds, so much so, they inspired her to write.  Moon Chase is the first in the series The Fellhounds of Thesk and the Fellhounds of the tales are inspired by her own wonderful Irish Wolfhounds, all 9ft and fifteen stone of them!  Originally bred by the Celts to hunt bears and wolves, they were also used in battle to pull men off horses and out of chariots, so their size was really important; Cathy is almost 5ft 7inches, doesn't tend to get into many fights, and her weight… she'd go an a Moon Chase before she gave that one away!  


Moon Chase is ideal for YA readers of all ages.  It has no sexual content or bad language.
