“This was one of the most amazing books I have read in a long, long time…left me craving for the next installment…” ~Felix Colley, Author of Frozen Thoughts

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.




A Word from the Author

Author Nicole DragonBeck pictureFirst Magyc is the first book in a ten part series.

Guardians of the Path follows the story of Ria, a young girl who loves music, and her journey to a mysterious land called Demona, where magyc is fading. The Guardians, guided by an ancient Prophecy, have to figure out how to stop this before the whole land dies. The story of Ria-of-the-other-world and the Guardians entwine with others who, like them, are fighting to save magyc: Witches, Assassins, Makers of Marks, the servants of Death, and even Death Himself.

The idea for the beginning of the story came to me as I walked through the hallway of a friend’s apartment building, and I heard a radio playing as I walked past one door. This is where First Magyc starts – with lonely Ria hearing beautiful music from behind a door that suddenly appears, and the story just grew from there. Other books in the series are Book 2: Ria’s Mark, Book 3: Omens, and soon to be released Book 4: The Other World.

A Word from the Author

Author Buddy Cushman pictureRosy is in her wheelchair, Matt is her nerdy attendant for the summer, Home Slice has Down Syndrome. They are underground in an aquarium when the sun burns through the Earth’s atmosphere and cooks the entire, 24-hour rolling planet. They make their way to the burned surface, miraculously find a way to keep Rosy’s chair charged and, after discovering their families and homes and everything they knew is gone, find their way to the ruins of a school in their hometown of Marion, Massachusetts. There they meet up with four younger boys, and when one of them discovers a still working portable radio in the ruins of a basement the group scans the dial and finds just one station still broadcasting – WANN in Rockport. That leads the group of seven on a journey across the state, and along the way they are joined by a family hiding in the underground Tube, and later, an alcoholic scientist who has given up on life. It’s just possible, they all come to believe, that one parent remains alive – in Rockport. This is a story of hope in a seemingly hopeless world, and faith – faith in each other, and , eventually, faith in miracles.

From the author who brought us The Du Lac Chronicles

Alden may have driven the man who tortured him from his lands, but he can do nothing to drive him from his dreams.

Alden has become bitter, angry and unrecognizable to those who love him. The only person whom could possible bring him back from the brink is his younger brother Merton. But even Merton is at a loss as to what to do.

As Alden seemingly wars with himself, there is a new threat to the kingdom. A threat that nobody foresaw, or could have possibly predicted


The adventure continues in this beautiful novella.

The Pitchfork Rebellion has a recommend reading age of 16+




A Word from the Author

Author Mary Anne YardeMy novella, The Pitchfork Rebellion, is set in the year 496 AD in Cerniw (Cornwall) and is part of a series called The Du Lac Chronicles. The Du Lac Chronicles is an Arthurian, historical fantasy series, which has been compared by reviewers to George R. R. Martin’s, Game Of Thrones.

Why did I choose Cornwall as my setting? Cornwall has a long association with Arthurian folklore. It was the kingdom of King Mark — the cuckolded king in the legend of Tristan and Iseult, and thanks to the work of Geoffrey of Monmouth, Tintagel Castle, in Cornwall, became the birthplace of King Arthur.

Alden du Lac, son of Lancelot, is King of Cerniw in the novel, The Pitchfork Rebellion, but Alden’s subjects are not happy with their new Queen. Annis is a Saxon, a foreigner, the daughter of their greatest enemy and she is not to be trusted. Alden is faced with an impossible choice, should he forsake his wife, and keep his crown? Or, should he stand down as King and let his brother rule in his place? Only time will tell
