Legacy of the Black Dragon
Julie D’Arcy
Mundania Press LLC,
ISBN: 1594260265

King Garrik le Fey of Tarlis strikes a deadly blow to Narokah, his Kingdom's deadliest enemy, the Dark Priest to the god Arahman. However instead of death, the malevolence uses his powers to change into a red dragon. Frantic Garrik orders his sorcerer to convert him into a black dragon with the stipulation that if he fails to destroy Narokah, the sorcerer is to trap both of them inside the ancient magical spell tome, Arkgeld.

Eight hundred years later, the two dragons are freed from the prison book, but Tarlis is ruled by a cruel dictatorship and the people believe Garrik is a myth. Besides needing to stop his dangerous foe and deal with the current avaricious leadership, Garrik must employ an Elven ritual to stop his total transformation into the beast. To succeed on that first leg and ultimately to vanquish his deadly opponent, Garrik needs allies, but can he trust the angry vengeful elf, Vellandril or Meggahn daughter of a Low-Lord; for without either of them, Garrik’s legend will include failure.

The LEGACY OF THE BLACK DRAGON is a terrific epic fantasy that readers will enjoy because the human, Elven, and other mythos societies seem genuine in their medieval setting. The story line is action-packed from the start and never loses momentum even as the eras change. The prime cast, especially the heroic trio, the greedy iron fisted rulers, and the anatomist are wonderful characters as they seem real whether they are purebred human, half dragon, or 100% Elven. Fantasy adventure readers will appreciate this dynamic tale of two powerful beings fighting the good vs. evil war.
