Sophia Freeman, eleven-year-old daughter of billionaire Jerri Freeman, has wanted to be an artist since the day she first held a pencil. Her father doesn’t approve, calling it her silly dream. Even worse, Dad has neglected Sophia since her mother—her greatest supporter—passed away two years ago.

After Dad purchases an island to expand his empire, to Sophia’s surprise, he invites her along for the day to visit the island, expressing hopes of them growing closer. Unfortunately, the trip turns into a nightmare. The place is no ordinary island—it’s a land of magic. After barely escaping an attack by a dark guardian, Sophia sprints to reunite with her father, but discovers his boat is fleeing, leaving her alone and helpless.

As Sophia despairs, feeling betrayed and hopeless, Silimon, a tree boy, comes to her aid. After spending time together and becoming familiar with the island, she is intrigued by the highly-evolved creatures and their society, but is overwhelmed by their power of spells.

The moment Sophia thinks her situation can’t get any crazier, she is shocked to learn the island is under a deadly eternal curse. All living things are rapidly decaying and soon nothing and no one—including herself—will be left alive.

According to the tree people’s predictions, Sophia is the Chosen One, come to save them from the looming disaster. But her body is deteriorating, and the only way to prolong her life so she can break the curse is to drink the sacred water from the mysterious guarded fountain.

With her life waning, she gathers her courage and focuses on her spell training in order to survive the journey to the magical fountain. Can Sophia and her companions reach the fountain and defeat the guardian before time runs out?

Editorial Reviews

"I truly enjoyed Sophia Freeman and the Mysterious Fountain - Book 1! The characters are so well developed - I especially like the ever patient Silimon! The illustrations help me image the beauty of the island and I loved the magic - we all need more magic in our lives! I am totally awaiting Book 2!" - Jayne Osburn-Lapointe  "Action, fantasy, adventure, love, hope, courage ... they’re all a part of this great imaginative story about an unexpected child heroine. This is an exciting, fast paced story sure to appeal to a wide audience. The target audience is youth, however, this older adult couldn’t put the book down and can’t wait for the adventure to continue in the next book. Well done, T.X. Troan." - Marie Marrone   "Although this is only the first book in this series I thought it showed real growth for Sophia as a character and left me with a few questions to keep me intrigued to continue reading. This is a great book for young adult readers."- TDC Book Reviews   "I really enjoyed the book, especially all the beautiful illustrations featured throughout!
