About the Author:

Having spent most of his teenage years adventuring in Middle Earth, the author is an avid fantasy fan. His first allegorical fantasy title, ""The King of the Trees,"" came out in 1998 (WinePress, first edition). Bowing to reader demand, he has expanded the series to include a total of seven titles to date, with more to follow. While still in high school, he began his writing career editing his father's popular identification guides, ""Edible and Poisonous Plants of the Western/Eastern States."" As an Assistant Professor in the Special Education Department at Western Oregon University, he served as a successful grant-writer and program coordinator. Burt holds a B.S. in English from Lewis and Clark College and an M.S. from Western Oregon University in Deaf Education. In addition to writing books, he works as an RID-certified American Sign Language interpreter with nearly forty years' experience. His interests include reading, foreign languages and mycology. He is married with two grown children.

Review:

5-Star Review by Mamta Madhavan for Readers Favorite: ""Torsils in Time"" (The ""King of the Trees"" series, Book 2) by William D. Burt is the second in this series. Rolin and Marlis are enjoying their picnic one autumn day. The griffins, Windsong and Ironwing, are there with them and they find a link between a silver starglass, five ravens, and a handful of pearls. They have to survive in a land far away from their family and friends. Saving Lucambra from falling into darkness is the main theme of the book. This book is as adventurous and exciting as the first one. Rolin and Marlis and their tryst with the King of the Trees form the theme of the adventure. Their trust in the King of the Trees during dire circumstances adds to the mystery aspect of the story. The book is full of fantasy and whimsy and the 'wherren' and 'therren' part of the book is very enjoyable. Fantasy and adventure stories are always exciting to read because they inspire the reader's imagination. The characters, names, and places are all unique and they reflect the creativity of the author. This is a good series for parents to buy for their children to stimulate their thinking on a different plane. The threads of fantasy, adventure, and excitement run through the book, making it an enjoyable read. The black and white sketches also help in making the story attractive. An excellent series for children to read and own. --READERS' FAVORITE
