Chronicling of Llithia


…never allow yourself to believe that what you see with human eyes is all that is possible or real.

When you look for the most beautiful things in life you will see and if you take the time you will know.

And if you know then you will believe.

Keetsie always believed there were other worlds, other kingdoms, other people and creatures on the earth. She always believed in the existence of faeries, from her mother’s stories and books that she had read. It was not surprising, given her belief, that she would one day be allowed to see and it was only a matter of time before they trusted her enough to stop their hiding. They were peaceful and kind to each other and to Keetsie…

But soon, after many convoluted twists and turns, she will become a captive in a prison of sorts, in Ilithia, their faerie Kingdom. She is young, alone and terribly afraid. Her captor is a king, an evil, power-hungry king, who cares not for the lives of his subjects or his children.

Keetsie has been missing now for many Ilithian days and who knows for how long in her own world, where she is simply a teenage girl, loved by her family, her friends. At this very moment, the entire community in her own world is looking for her, desperately hoping they will find her alive.

Become a part of Keetsie’s story – join in her tumultuous journey – as you discover what has happened to Keetsie and why. All will become clear, but much needs to be believed, understood and experienced by Keetsie, her family and you. The question is: Will you end up believing too?
