About The Dragon-Called
The Dragon-Called is an unusual concept in that it is a Series of Series, being written simultaneously. Both series are part of the Dragon-Called series, but take place five to seven hundred years apart. Both series have a Medieval-themed setting. Even though fantasy, both series attempt to keep some relevancy to actual medieval time-lines. The first series (a minimum of four books) is entitled Dragon-Called Legend and is set in early to mid medieval-like times (prior to gunpowder). The Dragon-Called Legend series is about:
At sixteen years old, Princess Willoe is to be sent away, in seclusion, prior to a forced marriage bond, rather than being allowed to fulfill her dreams of competing in a man’s world. Her twin, the solemn Prince Rowyn, has his own problems, forced to take up the life of a man-at-arms instead of retreating into his books and a life of contemplation. The twins decide, with the help of their cousins Aeron and Casandra, to take one last chance to experience their dreams.
A plan that has potential if not for two things: Foreign priests of the Shin-il Way, who see the twins as necessary to the priests’ domination of the world; and the Burning Lady, goddess over the Spirit world, who requires that the twins fulfill a covenant that a distant ancestor of theirs had made with the king of the dragons.
The close family bond between the twins and their cousins can help them confront any danger, but the true test of this bond comes when the price of the covenant becomes clear.
Fire of the Covenant is the first book in the Dragon-Called Legend series. It is based in the island country of Taran following the twins and their cousins as their true destinies are revealed and they pursue their individual journeys of discovery. As the story develops, both twins must learn about the Fire that controls them and how the covenant, of a long dead ancestor, has changed their lives forever.
The series Dragon-Called ????? (final series name TBD) takes place five to seven hundred years in the future of the Dragon-Called Legend. The setting is late medieval-like time (muskets). This series is not as defined as the Dragon-Called Legend, but in general it is about:
In a time when dragons are domesticated and a rebellious baron, supported by a foreign king, threatens to tear the kingdom apart, an orphan, Rylan, uses his special gift, mind-bridging, to connect with and train dragons. A gift that could get him burned at the stake, as a sorcerer, if it ever became public.
Through a chain of strange events, Rylan finds himself in the company of Elfs, Fairies, an intelligent dragon, a woman who he is attracted to but seems more intent on getting him killed, and other creatures Rylan thought only existed in myths.
Rylan has many obstacles to confront in his journey to find out where he came from and then to live up to the truth he uncovers. This would be difficult enough for most men, but when a powerful baron believes Rylan is preventing the baron’s rebellion from succeeding, the baron makes it a priority to remove Rylan… at all cost.
The first book in this series is entitled The Dragon Whisperer and will be available 2014.
