"While they fight demons, She holds the key to magic -- and his heart"

Faren Malaan, Knight of Paladia of the Kingdom of Rastehm, is sent forward in time to track and repair the Crystal Pyramid that holds Isanti's demons captive. Istani was not imprisoned with his demons and now he has found the pyramid and is after the key and Silverdawn. King Mikkasah was forced to send his daughter Silverdawn away as a child as she had magic within her. She unknowingly holds the pyramid's key.  

Silverdawn has no knowledge of her origins and she is grieving over the recent murder of her adoptive parents. Then one night, the lion and griffin that earlier that day were statues in front of the museum where she worked attacked her. She is rescued by Knight Faren and taken to safety at the home of the former mage to the king. Silverdawn is astounded to hear of her true heritage and doubtful about magic but cannot deny what she has seen. As the time runs out and Istani becomes more desperate the attacks become more intense. 

Silverdawn finds she is falling in love with Faren, her very own knight but Faren does not feel worthy of the king's daughter. Also, Silverdawn has no intention of returning to her father's world after helping Faren in this quest. How can her heart allow her to say good-bye when both their dimensions are safe again?

Ms D'Arcy has written a fantasy that does not quite fit the futuristic description, but would be enjoyed by those like myself who like that story type. There is enough magic and fantasy added to make it more than a time-travel. The growing love between Silverdawn and Faren received the same intensity as their adventures. So although defying sub- categorizing, SILVERDAWN can be described as an excellent Fantasy Romance.

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.
