"A beautiful adult fairy tale"

When she was but a babe, SILVERDAWN was discovered to have magic within her and as a result she was banished to the future, the twenty-first century Australia. Silver knows nothing of her origins or the fact that in return for help from the Goddess in ridding the land of demons, King Mikkasah agreed to expel any trace of magic in Rasteham. In present day London, Silver is Professor Wayman's senior assistant at the London Museum of Rare Artifacts and is transcribing a rare find, an ancient book about a place called Rasteham.

Professor Wayman is actually an immortal sorcerer, Iray of Istani, whom King Mikkasah exiled to present day Earth. He has located the pyramid where his demons are trapped and is trying to find the key that will unlock it to unleash the devils on Earth. Silverdawn owns the key in the shape of a small pyramid but even though she senses something unusual about it, she has no idea what it actually is. Knowing that she is in danger, Silver's real father sends his most trusted knight Faren into the future to watch over her, never dreaming that the pair would fall in love with each other. This couple might have a future together if Silverdawn can cope with the truth about her heritage and if they can stop Iray.

Anyone desiring a beautiful adult fairy tale will want to read SILVERDAWN, an urban fantasy novel that includes elements from the romance genre and sword and sorcery sub- genre. Julie D'Arcy has a flair for writing tales that is reminiscent of the bards of a bygone era. The audience will feel spellbound by this special fantasy.

SUMMARY

What if sorcerers had been real?

What if magick had really existed, and there had been a massive cover-up?

A world is ravaged by a war of demons and sorcery that no human can combat. Rastehm is on the verge of destruction.

Mikkasah is forced to send his daughter into the unknown future of the 20th century Australia, where she grows to maturity and moves to London with her adopted parents. She has no knowledge of her origins nor that she holds the key to the safety or destruction of both her new world and her old. Until one night, she is stalked by a lion and a griffin, and cast into an adventure that will change her life.

A dark knight becomes her savior.

Faren Malaan, Knight of Paladia of the Kingdom of Rastehm, is sent forward in time to track and retrieve the Crystal Pyramid. Mikkasah's Astronomers have learned that the pyramid, which shifts through the portals of time, is cracked. And if not restored Isanti's demons may soon escape.

Through sheer luck Istani was not imprisoned by Deharna. He also travels through time. However, he must body hop, taking over the bodies of innocents and casting them aside when he has done with them. But this time Istani is trapped in the body he inhabits. The sickly, weak body of Peter Waymer. His only escape from the cancer eating away at him is to find the Pyramid , release his demons and have them in turn heal him. With one thought in mind after his release, to wreak destruction upon mankind!

The fate of two worlds rests in the fading skills of Pendragon former mage to the king, a banished Princess of Rastehm and a Knight of Paladia who combats his own demons.

These three heroes, and the three people they meet along the way, must join forces to restore the Crystal Pyramid to Deharna, and battle the tormented mind of Iraj who will stop at nothing to gain his prize.
