Long ago, magick filled the land of Dramolux. But one sorceress delved too deep into dark sorcery and tainted the creatures inhabiting the land. In an effort to save all creatures, a noble sentinel locked the dark powers away. For generations, the dark ones were controlled, passed down to those who ruled the sentinel kingdom. All is peaceful until the newest sentinel queen is murdered and all the magick is released back into the world.
It is now up to her daughter, Princess Aymeri–who has no knowledge of what she truly is–to recapture it. But another dark sorceress is on the rise. She wants to lay claim to the magick and wield it herself, in an effort to take all of Dramolux under her control. The odds are against Aymeri and the magick the sorceress wants is evil. Aymeri must prepare to battle or die fighting for the survival of her people.
Veralun. Home of every creature known to mankind. Where humans lived among elves and dwarves played with the giants. Where enemies didn’t exist and light magic and dark magic coexisted in harmony, until one dark day when the skies turned gray and endless thunder and lightning storms purged the land. Beings of all kinds huddled in fear and prayed to their gods for salvation. But even the gods couldn’t stop the fearless sorceress known as Leaniya. With one powerful spell she began to infect all the magical creatures with her hate. Dwarves turned against giants. Elves turned against pixies. Fae turned against sprites. Everyone was at war with one another.
Before long the winds howled for Sentinel Yuria, Queen of the Magical Lands, and in swift motion and an effortless incantation, all the magical beings were nothing but mere inanimate objects strewn over the land. Barriers of fog, sea, and forests split the world away from them and out of it a new land was born.
Sentinel Yuria called this land Dramolux signifying the beginning of something wonderful, a land without magic. A land of harmony. And as all the magic ceased to exist, markings filled her body and the bodies of the other Sentinels of her bloodline.
They were the Maudlins and they were the guardians of peace.
By the time Aymeri’s mother finished, the girl was fast asleep on her mother’s lap and a small sigh escaped her lips. “One day, daughter, you’re going to wish you took these stories seriously and not as the nonsense your father led you to believe they were.”
Queen Ismana closed the book and put it back on the shelf, nestling it between two heavier books so the spine wouldn’t wither away. “One day you will learn, daughter. And I will teach you.”
The author will be raffling off Signed Copy of BOTH The Broken Daughter and The Dead Daughter, a Princess Survival Pack with 2 costume grade tiaras ,Princess-style garter and a Princess Themed Wine Glass during the book tour!
