Time is running out as Shadyia, with sword in hand, descends beneath the Silver Rose into a labyrinth of deadly traps and shadowy guardians. For only there can she defy the crusaders and avert the prophecy of a darkness that returns to consume the world.




A Word from the Author

Beneath the Silver Rose is the kind of fantasy book I wanted to read, but could never find. Sexy, powerful, positive. The heroes are beaten, but are never broken. Although this is a medieval setting (more or less 15th century Renaissance), the characters don’t scratch at fleas and trug through the book ass-deap in mud and blood and disease. I’m sure all that is accurate, but I never wanted to read about it.  I wanted magic that is rare, women that are bold and beautiful, mysterious magicians with a hidden agenda, and gods that move mortals about like pieces on a chessboard. That’s the book I wanted.  I was inspired by the fantasy writer David Gemmell in terms of pace.  When you read one of his books, you get your money’s worth. He won’t spend eleven chapters with this characters arguing in a castle. The term “I could never put it down” fits a Gemmell book perfectly, and it’s what I have striven to accomplish in the Shadyia Ascendant series. Get ready for a sexy adventure you won’t soon forget!

“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.
