After eight-year-old Darach moves in with his eccentric Uncle Rubus, he finds strange happenings afoot in his uncle’s small-town Ohio home when a dragon appears. As Darach begins believing in magic, he learns the amazing truth about his family—and himself.
The dragon has a riddle, and the riddle leads to a quest. An evil force is destroying all plant life on Earth. Darach and Uncle Rubus, who come from a long line of witches, must find the Seven Sacred Seeds and restore the Earth’s fertility. On their mission, they’ll encounter ghosts, elves, fairy queens, vampires, and other witches who use their power for evil. And Uncle Rubus, a.k.a. “the Wizard of the Green,” helps Darach master his mysterious ability to talk to plants.
Even as their quest becomes dangerous, Darach grows to love and appreciate the flowers and trees he’s always taken for granted. Unfortunately, the evil intent of the mysterious Dark Master may prove more powerful than any witch’s magic or passion for green, growing things.
415 Raspberry Picket & the Seven Sacred Seeds is the first installment in R. L. Patterson’s 415 Raspberry Picket Trilogy.
