You've read the ending, but there is a beginning to every story…

Centuries before the creation of the five kingdoms, when the great houses were still forming and the realm was ruled by fae, a small band of companions set out on a journey.

Kiera had never left her village. It was a stroke of luck that she wasn't there when the dragon attacked. Without any friends or family, without a shred of hope that anyone might believe her, she strikes off alone into the forest, looking for people that can help.

The world is new and untamed. The people are leaderless and wild. There has never been an alliance to unite them, but an alliance is exactly what the realm needs.

Because a darkness is coming.

One that threatens to consume them all…

Be careful who you trust.

Even the devil was once an angel.

Life's a game of chance…

When Kiera's village was destroyed by a three-headed dragon, she thought her biggest problem was going to be getting people to believe her story. Little did she know, the dragon was going to be the least of her troubles…

After finding the proof they needed in the charred remains of Cattaling, the three friends set out on a journey across the realm to find the answers that they seek.

But the road is often perilous and filled with creatures that would kill them just as easily as a dragon. When the bonds between them are tested, they're found to be new—easy to splinter and break.

The journey seems endless and time is not on their side. It's only a matter of time before the creature returns, and when it does, they need to be ready. How does one fight such an enemy? Where could it have been hiding all this time? Can just three lone companions make a difference?

Or are the fates simply not on their side?

How do you answer, when the devil comes to call?

When a swarm of monsters crashed out of the forest, Kiera thought it would be a struggle just to stay alive. But it's not enough to survive, one must also defend. And as fate would have it, there was an ever greater danger lurking in those trees.

Old enemies surface and ancient grudges come to light, as a new player enters the field. One that could bring ruin to them all. One whose intentions are never quite what they seem. The newfound fellowship is shaken to the core, but as they are constantly reminded, time is not on their side.

Other places in the realm have felt the burn of the dragon. A strange change is coming over the land, creeping like a shadow, silent as a dream. With no kingdoms there to stop it, no massing armies to fight back, such a darkness could consume them.

The friends need answers. But will they get them in time…?

How long can you hold back the tide?

When Kiera and her friends reach the hollow, they think they're finally going to get the answers they so desperately seek. How can they kill a dragon? How can they even find it? But instead of answers, they're left with riddles and even more questions.

Instead of returning to civilization, instead of rallying more people to their side, the friends make a decision that sets them upon an even more dangerous quest than the one they were on before.

They're going after the dragon themselves.

The will is strong, but the journey is fraught with peril and their newfound fellowship isn't as stable as it seemed. The world is changing and those turbulent forces are getting stronger every day.

How do you hunt such a monster? What can you do if you find it?

One way or another, they're about to find out.

Book Five

Learn to fight, it is the only option

You never know what you have, until it's gone…

When the friends wake up and Jesse is missing, they tear the realm apart trying to find him. But their enemy travels on light footsteps and he may be closer than they think.

It is a race against the clock, as the world begins to slowly unravel. A twisting shadow is creeping over the kingdoms, consuming everything that stands before it, and not everyone finds themselves on the same side. While dragon circles ever above them, Kiera finds herself facing a much smaller problem and a much different kind of question.

They had believed Marrow had done nothing to help them, but perhaps they had been mistaken. Perhaps he had been helping them all along. Perhaps he'd even given them the solution.

Something powerful enough to help them. Something small enough to fit inside a pocket.

Kiera gives herself over to the power of the stone, hoping for answers, but all she discovers is that trouble may be closer than she feared. For the enemy has many faces, and true friends seem harder and harder to find. With dragonfire scorching the horizons, the gang finds themselves faced with a terrible choice. One that may change the very course of history.

One that may tear their beloved fellowship to shreds.

In order to rise from the ashes, one must walk through the flames.

After discovering a mysterious castle in the heart of the desert, the friends must race back to their homeland to warn the fae about the damaris and Sorne. But secret forces are conspiring against them, and it won't be so easy to return home. After finding some unlikely help from a friend, the gang finally reaches the eastern shore, but when a disastrous turn of events leaves them stranded in the icy plains of the north, they find themselves in trouble once again.

How many times can they roll the dice, before it catches up with them? Can they warn the rest of their world about the darkness in time? More importantly, how is Kiera still breathing?

Book Nine

Be careful what you wish for…it might just come true.

When the friends were shipwrecked along a frozen tundra, they didn't know whether they would make it home again. When they were attacked by savage beasts, they had no plan to survive. When Kiera threw up her hands to defend them, they had no idea what might happen.

But in that moment, the gift of the dragon sparked to life.

Only a few weeks they've been gone, but the tides are already changing. A raven carrying their fateful news soars into the distance, and they wait desperately for a reply. They had believed their quest to be almost finished, but discover that a new chapter of their journey is only beginning.

The fates do not bestow gifts lightly, and great power must be handled with great care. But Kiera was not the only mortal chosen for such greatness. Her stone has a twin.

A twin that has fallen into dangerous hands…

Book Twelve

Learn to fight, it is the only option

Be careful who you invite to the table, they might end up running the game…

From the moment the Tezerin horde swept into the valley, it became clear that Kiera and her friends weren't getting out. An alliance with the warlords had sounded good in theory, but they had waded far from the shoreline, and those quick-churning waters could just as easily drown.

Forced to smile their way through what was quickly becoming a hostage situation, the friends try to navigate a razor's edge of warring agendas and peaked tempers, content to merely escape the palace with their lives. But there are secrets held within the Tezerin valley.

Secrets dark as the night that bore them. Secrets older than the earliest whispers of time.
