I'm making it official: Dragon's Talon, Book 1 of the Weapons of Espar, will be released on May 31st, 2020. And helping me reach that goal is the awesome work of Fantasia Frog Designs!
I'm most excited by being able to tie the style to Dragon's Voice, another Tale of Espar (although a different series), and the colour scheme suits this book so well! We've got Rodons in the picture this time, tying the two stories together, even though Dragon's Talon takes place about 200 years after Sair's adventures, fifty years after the fall of Espar. It's a story of loyalty, family, hope, and determination. It's also one of the first I ever finished! May 31st, join new characters from Espar and beyond as they come together to free the world from the control of the Lionian Sovereignty.
Considering COVID-19, this will be an online launch!
Check out the official page HERE. It will be updated as pre-orders and distributors become available!
"Did you know there was more to the Oath of the Keepers once?"
Cairon nodded, but then, realizing his grandmother may not have seen, he added, "The second part was to the kingdom and King of Espar, but we don't say that part anymore. There is no king."
Grandmother Kasha's smile seemed sad. "There is, though," she said. "He is just not on his throne. One day, Cairon, a firedrake called WhirlWind may come to you and ask you to help the king's family. I promised that the dragonkeeper would always answer that call, just as your father did. If they call, Cairon, you must help them. Promise me that."
"I promise, Grandmother," Cairon replied.
The old woman rolled onto her back, her vacant stare shifting to the ceiling. "Good boy. Now go back to your games."
