Excellent post Dionne. I must say, SotR has great potential to be adapted to film. It has that intensity. : )))
The Circle of Talia is an epic fantasy saga and coming-of-age series for teens and adults. Join Bronwyn and Blayke, two young realmists, and their animal companions, as they are forced to leave the only home they’ve ever known to undertake a dangerous journey towards Vellonia, city of the dragons.
The gormons, banished to the Third Realm over 1,000 years ago, are invading, slipping through the corridors between realms, and they want blood, lots of Talian blood. Will the young realmists learn enough of the Second Realm magic to prevail, or will everything they love be destroyed?
Shadows of the Realm, the first book, and A Time of Darkness, the second, are available where all great ebooks are sold (links available here), and if paperbacks are more your thing, visit Amazon and pick yourself up a copy.
