Camelot is in
trouble. Only they can save it.

 

Arynn Pendragon grew
up on the Island of Avalon, isolated and dreaming of the colorful fires that
burn on the mainland. Dragons protect the island, but the Knights have
forbidden any other magic.

 

Arynn and her friend
Malik yearn to discover the mysteries they’ve only heard about in whispers and
forbidden books. When Malik gives her a way to escape the island, she takes it,
even though she knows it means she can never return home.

 

What they discover
on the mainland is more than she ever dreamed. Camelot is a world of magical
creatures: magnificent dragons, elves, dwarves, and fairies who shrink when
they take flight. But Camelot is in grave peril. King Arthur is missing, and in
his place, Kay, the Regent, has waged war on magic. Arynn and Malik must rescue
Arthur before Kay can destroy Camelot forever.

 

Experience the start
of an Epic Fantasy saga suitable for all ages, which brings a fantasy twist to
the legend of Camelot through Arthur’s long-lost niece who must go on a quest
to bring magic back.

  

Amy Bartelloni
is a reader, writer, & coffee addict who lives with her husband, 3
children, and various animals in the northeast US. When she’s not playing
mom-taxi, you can find her with her nose in a book or her head in the clouds. A
people watcher and science fiction junkie, she still believes dreams can come
true. Some of her favorite authors include Neil Gaiman, Jasper Fforde, Grady
Hendrix, and Stephen King.  She’s the
author of the three book YA dystopian Andromeda series, YA sci/fi Gen One, and
the three book YA Camelot fantasy Children of Camelot series, as well as contributing
to several anthologies.

The whole
thing was a bad idea.  She knew that, but
they’d had bad ideas before.  Even their
adventures climbing the mountain were – strictly speaking – forbidden, but if
she followed all the rules, she’d never have seen the way the ocean unfurls all
the way to the horizon, or the quiet silence of knowing the heart of a
dragon.  Or the beauty of the lights
twinkling across the mainland shore. 
Though they raised more questions than they answered, she couldn’t
imagine a life without such mystery.  No,
Malik was right.  Whatever the cost, they
had to pay.  Even if it meant never
seeing her home again.
