About the author:
Mabel D. F. Cowie was born and raised in Cowdenbeath near Edinburgh, Scotland, and it's her homeland that continues to inspire much of her stories. After graduating from Brigham Young University, she now lives in Washington State with her husband and three children. Mabel picked up the habit of storytelling from her father, who would weave yarns as they went for walks throughout the highlands and lowlands of Scotland. 'Neath Ancient Ruins Lie began as a bedtime story for her two daughters, but it grew in the telling into a series of three books.

Arran’s pleasant life as a servant girl in a Scottish castle turns inside out overnight when a stranger appears in the dungeon. This is no ordinary stranger; the beguiling Elgol claims to come from a parallel world, and the inextinguishable flame now in their dungeon makes it hard to argue. The entire staff rallies to search the castle for clues that will return Elgol to his home. The laird of the castle, Arran, and all the servants, see their home in a new light as its mysteries unfold to reveal a deep and significant magical history. Their adventures reveal not only the creatures and stories buried long in the castle’s walls, but they ultimately bring out the nature of Elgol and of Arran herself. Awakenings is just the beginning of a journey of wonder, danger, magic, and a discovery of the courage and power within.
