About the book:
The way to Atlantis is paved with blood and magic…Dragons, The Royal Navy, and discovering the path to the mysterious city of Atlantis—for Valeria Dendali, this was all just the beginning. Finally, she has begun the Crucible, the perilous journey required to gain admittance to Atlantis. A ragtag group that includes her ex-love, a Dragon shifter, and a guide wrapped in secrets accompanies her aboard her ship, The Emerald Queen.
To pass the Crucible, they must survive tests of courage, truth, and bravery…
These tests are nothing like anyone has ever seen, and no one knows what they will entail or who will be challenged. Horrors and deception surround them, and the crew’s grasp on reality is stretched to the breaking point as the magic of the Crucible pushes them to the brink of madness and destruction.
For Valeria, completing the Crucible means finding a home she has always yearned for…
But as so often is the case, it’s not the destination that matters—it’s the journey. Between dealing with a complicated love life, monstrous foes, and manipulative villains, Valeria must discover the truth of her Atlantian ancestry.
Her heritage holds the key. It could unlock her destiny, or lead to the deaths of everyone she loves—if any of them survive the Crucible.
Meet the authors:
APRYL BAKER: So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.
Now, I live Huntersville, NC where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
JONATHAN YANEZ spent five years after graduating from college in sales and management before he realized life is too short to be doing anything but what you love. He lives in Southern California with his wife where he writes everyday, grateful for the opportunity.
