SECRETS OF “THE ARIELLA”

Ariella5

Who is this dark-haired beauty that they call ” The Ariella” or Queen Mother?  She commands an army of Dragons and Dragon Riders as well as a group of seemingly misfit Creatures that dwell in various mountain locations around the planet.  She has their fierce loyalty and is a force to be reckoned with among her global community; all of whom she guards with her life . . . she and her ominous and amazing Dragons, Basiliskos Verminthrax Pejorative – a male black Wyvern, and Invectum Viperathrax Pejorative – a male white Wyvern.

In The DRAGOMEIR SERIES books you can read all about this global population – their triumphs and defeats, while getting to know how “The Ariella” manages to keep them all alive from conflict to conflict.  But how long has she been around, and how did she become Queen Mother to this unlikely group of characters?

To answer this question, I am currently writing a Prequel to the series, which will chronicle her life, and rectify some of the myth surrounding her tumultuous journey leading up to her title, “The Ariella” or Queen Mother.  The story picks up shortly before her birth and follows her life thereafter.  It was her destiny to become the Queen of the Dragons and a champion to the downtrodden misfits in her world.

If you love Dragons, Dragon Riders, Otherworldly Creatures, and lots of adventure and intrigue, I hope you will enjoy the first three books in the DRAGOMEIR SERIES –

 

AND keep watching for my forthcoming book, the Fourth Book in the Series –

  • “DAUGHTER OF THE DARK LORD”

Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.  Happy Reading!
