What’s the Hidden Strength Series?
The Hidden Strength Series is a high fantasy series, featuring anthropomorphic humanoid characters of various species. The main character is Adamar, a fox, who goes on a quest with his fellow archers Hmo, a bat, and Ohanzee, a coyote, to rescue Adamar’s kit, Miro. Miro has been stolen by King Girbindon, a wicked bear who rules the Darvin kingdom. In Hidden Presences, Adamar, Hmo, and Ohanzee are all in their twenties, while Miro is a toddler. Multiple viewpoints are explored in Hidden Presences. Hidden Presences can have a middle-grade/young adult audience, but can be read by any age, as indicated by the reader-described depth of the story.
