Isobel Moore is looking forward to spending her summer break alone while her parents are overseas. But when she returns home from college, she discovers it's no longer the welcoming place it used to be...and that something sinister now resides within. As Isobel begins to question her sanity, a mysterious neighbor moves next door with plenty of his own secrets...and Damien DeLuca has the uncanny ability to always show up when the unexplainable happens.
Old things come again and new things surface. Faced with a looming war, the riders have no choice but to leave the safety of Galdrilene and reach out to the nations for help. But the Shadow Riders are doing the same and not all nations are opposed to their rule. New discoveries are made, old wounds are reopened and betrayal hides among welcoming smiles. As one nation begins to unravel it's clear that some choices, even those made with the best of intentions, can have devastating consequences.
"First effort gains momentum"
The war between the Guardians and the Shadow Riders ended in total devastation. The final battle killed all the dragons and left nothing but fields of ash. A small clutch of dragon eggs was all that remained to provide hope for the future. Five hundred years later, the ability to use magic is a death sentence and dragons are remembered as a curse. But the unhatched dragons sing for their riders...and six lives will be changed forever.
"A Magical Journey"
Presented with impossible odds, the Guardians struggle to hold against the Shadow Riders. While enemies from within are discovered and allegiances are formed, the losses mount.
At 19 Morgan has already faced more loss than she can handle and has more experience living on the street than she wants. Unable to do anything other than keep on the move in order to hide from the demons that hunt her, she guards her heart and emotions carefully. But when the demons start talking to her and calling her by a name from another life, things spiral beyond her control.
