What If? Alternate Original Edition Cover Copy for Avalon: Quest for Magic

One of the benefits of being (mostly) quarantined is that I have time to look up some oddities from Avalon’s publication history. Today I explored the old CDS Books online shop and discovered something interesting: alternate cover copy for the first three books of Avalon: Quest for Magic (books 7-9 of the revised series)! You may notice some significant differences between these summaries and the books we know and love.

The early version of Song of the Unicorns had the girls purposefully make the unicorn foals give up their magic so they could hide on Emily’s horse ranch in New Mexico:

Emily invites her Ravenswood friends to visit her family’s horse ranch in New Mexico—but there’s no rest for these animal guardians! The girls discover a herd of baby unicorns hiding from an evil hunter who means to use them to control the magic of the fabled land of Avalon. In a frantic gamble to escape detection, the unicorns are disguised as ordinary ranch horses—sacrificing their magic in the process! Now Emily, Adriane, and Kara, along with their magical animal friends, Ozzie, Dreamer, and Lyra, must discover the secret of how to return the unicorns’ powers to them before their magic is lost forever!

Imagine an alternate version of All’s Fairy in Love and War in which all the girls end up in a war-torn Fairy Realms:

While continuing their quest for Avalon’s missing Power Crystals, the young mages Emily, Adriane, and Kara accidentally fall through a magic portal. Instantly, they are transported into the Realm of the Fairies—and right into the middle of a war zone! The fairies are battling the evil goblins, who have stolen the Fire Horse, the guardian of fairy magic. In order to save him, the girls must discover the secret location of the Wildfire Crystal. Could it be the same Power Crystal they’ve been looking for? Time is running out; whoever finds the Wildfire Crystal first will control the fate of the Fairy Realm—and possibly Avalon itself!

Ghost Wolf has the only summary that is mostly unchanged:

This time the battle has come to Ravenswood!

In their attempt to destroy the mages and capture the power crystals of Avalon, the Dark Sorceress and her evil ally, the Spider Witch, are twisting the magic of Ravenswood and releasing angry spirits of the forests. It’s up to the warrior, Adriane, with the help of her bonded mistwolf, Dreamer, to lead the fight to save the preserve. But will the magic of the healer and the blazing star be enough to help Adriane fight the apparitions of evil growing from the twisted trees themselves, who can attack even in one’s dreams? The warrior is going to need help in order to fight these terrifying ghosts – help from a trusted friend inside the spirit world: her lost packmate, Stormbringer.

Adriane must walk the warrior’s path to a whole new level of magic in a fight to the finish, with the magic of Avalon at stake.

What do you think of these original summaries? Would you have preferred these storylines over the final product? How would the series be different? Let us know in the comments!

Avalon Production Update: 13 April 2020

Your semi-regular update on all things Avalon: Web of Magic.

From comments on the voyager.world Instagram:

  • re: series production: everything got a bit delayed but we’re working remotely from home and should be able to post some new updates soon [source]

In other news:

I messaged the voyager.world Instagram and got some additional details on the production:

I can’t get into details but we’re working on it. Luckily for us, animation can be produced and directed remotely so it’s one area of the business that is active.

Avalon Production Update: 6 April 2020

Your semi-regular update on all things Avalon: Web of Magic.

Good News, Everyone!

Voyager.world’s Instagram account is back. Which is why some of the broken Instagram links from previous updates work again.

Unfortunately, all their posts after October 2018 are gone. That means that most of the concept art of the mages that was posted last year aren’t there anymore.

Now that they’re back, we can presumably ask them about any updates on the Avalon animated series and future books. So, fans … ask away.
