About the Book

Sorcerers, wizards, and witches use magic for evil; but, as long as there are dragons in the world, there will be champions ready to stand against them.

Borys knows little of such matters, but he does have a faint memory that seems to suggest that dragons are to blame for the death of his parents. He yearns to know more about these creatures, and in his quest for answers, he comes across a mystical craft that takes him down the abominable path of magic. He’ll now learn more than he ever bargained for about these elusive creatures. And he’ll also discover terrible things he can do with his newfound powers.

Alanna almost drowns at her father’s marina. She lives only because David jumps in the water after her, even though he doesn’t know how to swim. David becomes a local hero, but Alanna cannot understand why she survived. Now, she’s back in town seeking answers.

Heroes and villains alike are about to discover that nothing touched by magic remains unchanged, especially in a world of sorcerers, wizards, witches, and Dragons.

About the Author

Ricardo Chévere is a Spanish instructor in Central Florida, where he teaches high school students. He enjoys writing, dancing, drawing, painting, and the martial arts. With over thirty years of experience in the practice and instruction of the martial arts, his views in life, and his writings, have been deeply influenced by them. Born in Caguas, Puerto Rico, he learned English in school as a second language. At the age of nine, he began drawing cartoon characters. He imagined and created countless fantasy stories through his drawings. A few times, he found himself cutting his stories short, only because the notebooks he used to write his stories on, were running out of pages. Without strict and unyielding religious beliefs at home, he was allowed to explore all sorts of philosophies and faiths, enriching his mind with broader ideas for his novel. "DRAGONS" is an intricate, suspenseful, action-packed, and philosophy-bound story, of which "The Essential Ties" is but the beginning.
