The Golden Dragon Arthurian legend

How much wizard power is too much?

Some people are born with magical powers.

Others are not.

It’s that simple.

Roland Tyre, High Wizard of the Citadel, has always wanted to be the most powerful wizard in the land and adored by all.  But there is already someone else that vies for that title – Bakari, the Dragon King; one of his best friends.

While Bakari and the dragon riders race off to find the lost dragon artifacts and the mythical golden dragon, Roland discovers his own magical artifact that gives him the opportunity to increase his own powers and influence in the land.

Can friendships survive greed for power?  And who will emerge as the most powerful wizard in the land?

A grand adventure awaits with powerful wizards, kidnappings, traitors, kingdoms changing hands, and of course dragons and other magical creatures.

Is the Golden Dragon real and if so, who will find him first?

This is a follow-on series to The Alaris Chronicles, but can be read as a stand-alone series also.

Wondering what the Light and Shadow Chronicles series is about?

The world in the Light and Shadow Chronicles is in a state of eternal conflict between two nations – The Children of Light and Brotherhood of Shadow. They have been at war for thousands of years, in a stalemate that is manipulated by forces greater than any of them realise. Both armies try to shift the scales in their favour by recruiting greater forces – angels, demons, dragons, armies of the underworld, and magical beings. The war continues to grow in scale until the entire world is dragged into the conflict and it can only end in a cataclysmic Armageddon.

Each of the stories in the series focuses on a significant character or group and their role within the battle. Every story is laying the foundations for something else, like building blocks for the epic finale. The books are written out of order – one story may feature a character in his adulthood, the next is set before he is born, the next after his death. Putting the order of events together is up to you.

This means that you may choose your own journey through the saga. If you feel connected to a certain character, you can follow that individual’s story first. And if you join the series after book 5 is released, there is no need to read books one through four first!

So where does the new book fit into the series?

Genesis of Light is a fantasy novella set towards the beginning of the timeline, which tells the origin story of the Children of Light. Another novella will be released later this year to explain the origin story of the Brotherhood of Shadow. This novella is entitled Origin of Shadow and is currently in editing.

Exigency (Protectors of the Elemental Magic Book 2)

preorder

Author: Marnie Cate

Title: Exigency

Series: The Protectors of the Elemental Magic Series

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy/Romance

Synopsis:

There is a world around us that most people don’t take the time to see.

Mara Stone’s world was shaken, but she is a fighter. Facing new adversaries, Mara is learning what it truly means to protect the magic. As she starts to rebuild her life, the web of her family’s secrets continues to unravel. Mara is forced to face her fear of losing everything she holds dear.

She said that you would be a challenge to my children. I thought I had made the right choice when I selected Eliza. If only Mae had not interfered. But, enough of those sad thoughts, I think the two of you will be perfect replacements.

When Mara and Cole find themselves in the cold world of Snowstrum, they will have to choose either to be true to their promise to protect the magic, or to follow their desires. Magic may not be enough to free them from the icy fortress they are trapped in.

The second book in the Protectors of the Elemental Magic series, Exigency is a compelling, magical young adult fantasy tale.

Excerpt

As I continued walking, the air died down but I quickly found myself encompassed by a dense fog. My hair was no longer blinding me but I could barely see my hand in front of me. A soft voice in me told me to just to keep walking and I listened until I stepped into cold water.

“Damn it,” I cried out.

Not sure where I was I stopped and called, “Air, please blow away this fog and let me see where I am.”

Sitting down, I waited while the moist vapor drifted away showing me that I was on the rocky shore of Sparrow Lake. Sitting down, I wrapped my arms around my legs and gently began to rock myself. How did I get so far from home? I felt as if I was losing a connection with reality. I kept telling myself that if I just listened to my heart everything would be as planned. As I questioned my recent behavior and my faith that the Goddess would guide me, I heard a crackling sound behind me. Turning to the direction of the noise, I saw a shadow quickly dart through the tree line.

Calling out, I said, “Stop! Who are you? Why are you following me?”

No response came from the forest. Standing to face the unknown, the cold breeze off the lake picked up and covered my arms with goosebumps. Rubbing my arms frantically to warm up, I called out again.

“Whoever is out there, show yourself,” I said.

“With all the magic you hold, you could easily climb up the mountain and give them what they deserve,” said the bewitching voice of a woman.

“You could start a little fire. One little ball of your magic could ignite the forest surrounding them. It would grow and grow until it would burn the mansion down. Or you could call a great wind and bring everything and everyone inside down into a crumbling ruin.”

With more anger, the voice said, “And there is always my favorite. You can call the rain and demand it to pour down. Calling more and more of your magic until you finally send everything off the mountain. Mudslides happen all the time.”

“Or if you wanted to be lazy, you can just ask the ground to shake and shake and shake until you have created dust out of them all.”

The voice taunted, “Wouldn’t it be so easy? Don’t you think they deserve to be punished for what they did…?”

The Bridge Between Yesterday and Tomorrow

The Bridge Between Yesterday and Tomorrow – Book Release!

Today Lisa Veldkamp’s first short-story will be released on Amazon. The Bridge is available both as paperback or e-book.

She found her inspiration in magical Dalarna, a county in Sweden. As her family-in-law lives there, this allows her to visit the country on a regular basis, especially in winter. This is where her creation of Eydis was born, a little troll girl who falls in love with a human boy.

Releasing The Bridge sort of became a family effort as the original sketch was made by her cousin Trudy v/d Bosch-Veldkamp. The poem featuring in both the book and the book trailer was made by her cousin Tom v/d Vlies. And her own husband, a goldsmith, created the emerald ring Eydis receives from her father.

The Bridge was first released on the 18th of October 2015 as part of an anthology created by the #Awethors, Awethology Light. As the word implies, there was also a Dark version released by Plaisted Publishing House. You can download both e-book versions for FREE on Amazon!

To get you in the holiday spirit, here’s the booktrailer for The Bridge Between Yesterday and Tomorrow. The music was provided by pianist Donna Verdell.

About the book

“Hello human child. My name is Eydis. I’m a troll-girl who’s in big trouble. You see, I’ve fallen for one of your kind. A human boy. Talib. He’s just so nice – I can’t stay away from him. If my father finds out though, I don’t know what will happen. Humans are not supposed to know we exist and I just broke the rules. Oh, did I mention he’s also the king and I’m heir to the throne? Yes – like I said. Big trouble.”

Deep in the woods, below the rocks and in the caves, there lies a world unknown to us. They are part of our stories though. Part of our heritage, our legends and myths. Trolls. However, they might not be what you expect them to be. What if you meet one of them? Would you believe your eyes? Would you be brave enough to follow them? To go on an adventure?
