About the Book

What if everything that you thought of as being real wasn’t?  Could you live knowing that your life isn’t what you’ve expected it should be like?  Well, imagine a world in which all that is so. The world of Granod is a very different place from what it once was.  The Great Blue Dragon created the world about two thousand years ago, where animals of any kind could roam freely among humans, elves, and other races.  However, when the Dragon Lord was tricked and taken from the ideal place he has called “home”, all rights and rules that had been associated with freedom instantly vanished. Now, women were the rulers, and men were nothing but slaves.  It was a life style that was known to all until David, a seventeen-year-old slave, decided that wasn’t the life he could stand anymore.  Upon packing whatever belongings he had, including his pet red dragon, David fled from everything he knew was unjust.  Then, meeting a woman named Julia, who appeared nothing like any other woman David had ever known, it was decided that the only way to get him out of danger was to partake in the adventure that was called upon by the mayor.  The mayor proclaimed, “Find the eight dragon jewels that will bring our Lord back to this world and receive money and fame.”  Sounds simple, right?  Wrong. Through finding clues along the way, discovering a love that would not fade, and meeting new people, including Julia’s cousin, Kat, weapon smith, Raven, Kat’s friend, John, a mysterious witch, Tashe, and many more, it is hard to differentiate who can be trusted to come along on this quest.  However, they, for now, must learn to cooperate if the jewels, as well as man’s freedom, have any chance of being rediscovered.
