Avalon: Web of Magic is a sweeping series of young adult fantasy novels published by Seven Seas Entertainment and distributed through Tor Books. Written by Rachel Roberts, the series features a magical and adventurous storyline, with positive messages for young people ages 8-12. The twelve-book series supports a continuing story arc starring three teenage girls and their animal friends, that centers on themes of friendship, triumph over adversity and love for nature.
Magical animals from the world of Aldenmor have come through a portal at the Ravenswood Wildlife Preserve in Stonehill, Pennsylvania. Hurt, hungry, and barely alive, they seek three mages to save their world: a healer, a warrior, and a blazing star. Three teenage girls, Emily, Adriane, and Kara, the most unlikely of friends, discover they have been chosen. Together they will become mages and begin an extraordinary quest to find the home of all magic, a legendary place called Avalon.
But the animals did not come alone. The evil Dark Sorceress that hunted them is also searching for Avalon and will not stop until she gets what she wants: all of the magic. How can Emily, Adriane, and Kara protect the animals of Ravenswood, hide the secret of magic, save the universe, and deal with high school? The answer arrives in one furry, constantly hungry and over-excitable being: a talking ferret named Ozzie! Ozzie is actually an elf sent to earth disguised as a ferret. He knows nothing about teenage girls but manages to teach them that bonding with animals and making friends creates the strongest magic of all.
