Hamelin Stoop Series

The Hamelin Stoop series is a fantasy for young adult and adult readers, and involves strange creatures, worlds, and battles of good and evil.

Robert B. Sloan has written non-fiction for many years, but writing fiction has been a life-long ambition. Work on this fantasy series began 11 years ago in St. Andrews, Scotland. It has been an experience that is intertwined with the larger story arc of his own experiences of teaching, leading, and envisioning.

The Eagle, the Cave, and the Footbridge

Guided by the Great Eagle through a mysterious cave, eleven-year-old Hamelin must pass a dangerous test of courage before he can find his parents. Hamelin’s failures, fears, and hopes become part of a larger story, a story of a great struggle between worlds and kingdoms where the old myths of magic, evil contracts, and enslaved children turn out to be real.
