This year, Dragon Shield by Dianne Lynn Gardner officially gets a new facelift, completely re-edited and re-designed, with a full map and character lists to boot. Book Two of The Ian’s Realm Saga is expected to be released in May 2014. The original publication (First Printing) was through Hydra Publications back in January 2013, and is not associated with PDMI Publishing, LLC, so you can expect to see some beautiful new goodies as it hits its official new release date. The price will be listed at $12.99 with a 55% discount for its wholesalers, retailers, schools and other outlets, with an option to return.
Other books to be released in this series include: Rubies and Robbers, Diary of a Conjurer and Cassandra’s Castle. PDMI believes in this series, hence our distribution of Dianne’s first book, Deception Peak, into the Ingram Catalog, as seen below. Deception Peak is also available via Audiobook.
“Integrity isn’t something you do, it’s who you are,” Aren tells the confused Ian in The Dragon Shield. Now a young man, Ian returns to the magical Realm to fight against the tyranny that has befallen his friends. But the Realm: is a different place, the forest is dying, the Kaemperns have lost the shield that protected them from the dragon, and Ian has a hard time proving his allegiance when trouble follows him through the portal. His struggle to do right buries him in confusion, and he must fight his own will to prove his integrity. The Ian’s Realm Saga is filled with sorcery, wizards, magic, and fantasy adventure, great for young readers and the entire family. If you enjoy dragons, sorcery, wizards, magic, legend, and fantasy adventure, then this series is for you!
