Guardians of the Path Book 1, by Nicole DragonBeck
The Path is fading, and the music of Life is vanishing. Cedar and his fellow Guardians have been entrusted for centuries to protect the Path, the very force of Life itself.
An accident traps Cedar between his home and another world devoid of magyc–but not of music. He is found by Ria, a mysterious girl who holds the key to returning him home.
With little choice Cedar uses First Magyc, Blood Magyc, to save himself, and finds himself the unlikely caretaker of the very girl who might fulfill an ancient Prophecy and restore the Guardians to their former station as honored heroes.
Unwittingly lured into Demona, a world of magyc and music, Ria struggles to understand her own growing abilities even as she is drawn into an ages old conflict between Human and Demon.
But sometimes, the difference between the two isn’t so easy to see.
About the Author: Nicole DragonBeck was born in California one snowy summer long ago, the illegitimate offspring of an elf and a troll. At a young age her powers exploded and she was banished to the wilderness of South Africa because her spells kept going inexplicably awry. There she was raised by a tribe of pygmy Dragons and had tremendous adventures, including defeating a terrible Fire-Demon that had been tormenting a sect of Dwarf priests. In gratitude they taught her the arcane magic of writing and the rest is horribly misinterpreted history. She reads as much as she writes, is obsessed with dragons and Italians, enjoys cooking, listening to music and can often be heard fiddling on a keyboard or guitar. She currently lives in Clearwater, Florida, is a member of The Ink Slingers Guild and is working on several novels, all of which have at least one mention of a dragon. She lists friends, music and life among her greatest influences.

An Elemental Origins Novel by A.L. Knorr
Everything you thought you knew about mermaids is wrong.
Life for a high school kid in Saltford should be simple and straightforward – for 17-year-old Targa MacAuley, it’s anything but.
Navigating life with a supernatural mother is tricky enough, but dealing with the feelings of guilt that she’s never been able to ‘change’, and confusion that she doesn’t seem to be attracted to boys (or girls for that matter), Targa feels like she’s got more demons than the average kid.
When the opportunity to salvage a mysterious wreck in the Baltic arises for her mom, a professional salvage diver by day, Targa jumps at the chance to go abroad for the summer. But it’s when she meets Antoni, and a boating accident puts them both in danger, that Targa’s world turns inside out for good.
Bookdragon says: This was a fun addition to the series. We found the material to be a little more mature and sexy than the others, but still clean. It’s fine as a standalone read, but we can’t wait to see what happens eventually when all the girls bring together their elements.
Hi Nicole! Welcome to BookDragon Club. What are you working on right now? I am working on book 5 of my 10-part YA fantasy series, The Guardians of the Path, titled Wasteland (said like Ireland or Switzerland, not “Waste”-“Land”). What’s your favorite thing about writing? […]
Momaya Short Story Review 2017 from Momaya Press Utopia or Dystopia? 2017 was a year of contradictions. Some of the world’s greatest literature have dealt with the theme of dystopia — Atwood’s The Handmaiden’s Tale, Burgess’ The Clockwork Orange, Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, Huxley’s […]
In his Napra Nautilus Award-winning novel Touching Spirit Bear, author Ben Mikaelson delivers a poignant coming-of-age story of a boy who must overcome the effects that violence has had on his life.
After severely injuring Peter Driscal in an empty parking lot, mischief-maker Cole Matthews is in major trouble. But instead of jail time, Cole is given another option: attend Circle Justice, an alternative program that sends juvenile offenders to a remote Alaskan Island to focus on changing their ways. Desperate to avoid prison, Cole fakes humility and agrees to go.
While there, Cole is mauled by a mysterious white bear and left for dead. Thoughts of his abusive parents, helpless Peter, and his own anger cause him to examine his actions and seek redemption—from the spirit bear that attacked him, from his victims, and from himself.
Bookdragon says: Okay, this was an intense read. There are some harrowing accounts of physical abuse, and Cole’s first few days are truly terrible — injured badly by a bear, seagulls pecking at his torn flesh — this is not pretty. But the eventual redemption and self-examination of a boy filled with anger and hate overcomes the ugliness, teaching important lessons about responsibility, happiness and really living.
