Title: THE WAKING GROVE
Genre: YA Fantasy
I am seeking representation for my YA fantasy THE WAKING GROVE, complete at 50,000 words.
Melina believes that she’s the last of her kind until a blossom appears at the base of her tree. Much to her surprise and delight, she discovers that the mysterious flower is a young dryad and her soon-to-be-daughter. But as the world changes around her, the humans beyond her borders believe there’s something worth fighting for within her Grove.
As the blossom grows, her powers weaken and the protective veil around her forest falls. Humans are poised to strike and Melina’s time has almost run out. Now she must choose between her life and the one of her unborn daughter. She can regain her strength and bring peace back to the Waking Grove by destroying the blossom, but this is also her last chance of becoming a mother.
If she chooses to allow the tender flower to unwrap and bloom, she risks the Grove's destruction at the hands of man.
