Inspired by characters from the tales of Hans Christian Andersen, such as the Tin Soldier, the Little Mermaid, the Old House, the Little Matchgirl, the Emperor's New Clothes, the Nightingale, and the Snow Queen, the stories in The Dryad's Cede series can be read in any order, though I recommend Kindled Embers, Spring Tyde, and lastly Feather Frost.
Scroll down to read a little about each story in The Dryad's Cede series.

The two embark on an adventure to clear his name, where Eliza proves to him just how resourceful a twelve-year-old girl can be.
Chastain is a dryad who has spent decades alone in the meadow where her chestnut tree grows. When Freddie stumbles across the meadow one day, an unexpected friendship develops between the lonely dryad and the ten-year-old little prince.
When Prince Anders disappears from the Palace in very mysterious circumstances, his childhood friend Eliza suspects there may be truth in the myths and legends of the land.
