gates to Tarragon are open once more, fulfilling age-old prophecy. However,
Anwen’s journey is far from over. The dragons still sleep and she has no clue
how to wake them. Forced to retreat from the Mountain, she and her newfound
friends must devise a new plan to wake the inhabitants of Tarragon.Meanwhile, the Mage Circle, a group of dragon
mages with a vendetta, is camped outside the Gates. Calling on allies of their

dwell inside.To complicate matters even more, Anwen’s mother
has joined the party. But even with the help of all her friends, can Anwen

Top Ten List
Top Ten Favorite desserts
1- Ice cream. Who doesn’t love ice cream? It’s like the standard go to
2 – Cheesecake. What’s not to love? Especially if it’s one of those Oreo ones.
3 – Coconut cream pie. I don’t normally go for coconut, but there’s just something about it in pie form that can’t be denied.
4 – Brownies. What can I say besides Chocolate?
5 – Blintzes. If you haven’t tried them, you’re missing out. It’s like a crepe but not rolled, and it’s pan fried.
6 – Pudding, especially pistachio or cheesecake flavored, I mean, come on! It’s creamy. It’s rich. It’s prefect. And you can add in whatever you want.
7 – Cobbler, usually apple or peach. You’ve got that sweet crunchy stuff and that gooey filling. Yum.
8 – Chocolate Silk Pie. It’s Chocolate! In a graham cracker crust.
9 – Sugar Cookies, like the melt in your mouth coated with sugar kind, not the cheap tastes like flour stuff you get at the grocery store. Home made all the way!
10 – A Lie, if you don’t know what this is, you’re missing out. It’s a pie baked into a cake. (Some call it something along the lines of a cherpumpkin but my version’s better). Or if, you want to take it a step further, do a glacee pie backed into a giant brownie and decorate it like a cake to have a Conspiracy.)
Courtney stopped abruptly as the scatterings of a cave-in came into view. “Oh no,” she whispered, one hand to her mouth. Moving slowly, she noticed a body slumped in the hallway. “Please don’t be dead,” she said over and over again as she moved closer. She couldn’t help but wonder which of her friends lay there, and what had happened to the other.
The closer she came, the more detail came to light. She recognized Tyler Durand as he lay on his side. His light-colored hair lay limp against his head. His skin was unnaturally pale. At least she didn’t think he was dead. It took a lot to kill a dragon. But just beyond him, a little more out of the way, lay Anwen Porter. And she wasn’t moving.
