DRAGONS ARE COMING TO CELENIC EARTH TO END A WAR RAGING ON FOR CENTURIES

Pernonil was lost to the Elves….the southern lands forsaken by the tribes….Chenesia lost to the Vale…Shadowolf lost to the world…

It has been two years since Shadowolf released the power node and destroyed Mercius; since he had been mysteriously taken by a dragon to Bentley Strip. But rumours of the dragons are stirring in New Avalion, and one of them is that the son of Nighthale has returned.

The Shadow Clan reform and set out to him in the Strip, and they meet a man wiser and more powerful than before. They quickly learn that Shadowolf had been in another world with Asgorna the Dragon King in what is called the Dragon War, a war that has leaked into Celenic Earth and that the dark lord Le’Mar plans to use to his advantage. Ursula the unicorn joins their Clan, and urges Shadowolf to find a horn lost in the Battle of T’Mar’s Scourge. The horn holds untold power and would assist in defeating the dark lord. But on their way they find many obstacles, including the undead, witches, the Butcher of Philagis and Firestroms. 

Quietly, Le’Mar is preparing his new champion for the War, Sonersaat the DragonRider. As his quest grows larger, Shadowolf decides to enter Eldor’s Forest, find Eldor and Masara and await Le’Mar. It is a war the earth has been anticipating….and it is a war with the direst consequences.

The “Prophecy of the DragonRider” is upon them…

***### REVIEWS AND PRAISE ###***

“Jooste’s imagination has depth of both scale and scope, with parallels between this imaginary world and the real world, characterised by an interesting contrast between the industrialised evil forces and the ‘natural’ forces of good…”

- Thomas Jeffery; NELM News 49, Dec 2008: National English Literary Museum of South Africa

“Fans of high fantasy such as Tolkien, Terry Brooks or David Eddings will be well pleased with Jooste’s first novels and foray into the popular genre…He is finding his rhythm and style, doing a great job of making the reader care for the hero and characters; these books will be in my rotation of heavily reread fantasy novels in my bookshelf.”

Ellen Hotchkiss; Feb 2009: Lecturer, Milledgeville, Georgia

“If you are looking for an epic, sweeping expanse fantasy book to read, then this is it. Congratulations to Shaun Jooste for entering the world of print in the fantasy genre with a tale that will be picked up again and again just so I can immerse myself into his richly described world that is Celenic Earth.”
