Publisher Description

Ancient legends don’t come back to life. Until they do...

Legends tell of creatures the size of houses, with wings as vast as the sails of great ships. Their scaled hides glittered like caskets of jewels, and from their massive jaws they breathed gouts of pure fire. The draykoni once ruled the skies of the Seven Realms, uncontested and unstoppable — so the stories say. But they are only tales.

Aren't they?

When Llandry Sanfaer discovers a new type of jewel, her life changes forever. Wonderful and terrible, the gem exerts a strange influence over those who behold it. Soon people are dying for it, and Llandry herself becomes a target.

This is only the beginning.

What is this starry jewel, that no one can resist? Who is the killer that stalks the night, stealing the gems from their murdered owners? And why does the gem call so powerfully, so irresistibly, to Llandry herself?

Llandry's destiny cannot be denied. A shy jeweller is about to learn that sometimes, even the most far-fetched story might prove to be the plain, simple truth. 

An epic tale of magic, mystery and dragons from the author of the Malykant Mysteries. Step into the dark...

Very interesting story but I am not currently willing to but any further books at this time. Just did not pull me in. I can’t even explain why.

Entertaining from Beginning to End

I enjoyed this book and the fantastical world the author created. I would read it again, and I am already off to the next book in the series.

This book kept me enthralled with the fascinating characters and remarkable spirit. The ever changing placement of the character’s in the different levels to each their own battle. On top of it all, the unique animals and the parts they played just made the story amazing.
