St. George, UT (PressExposure) July 21, 2014 -- Fantasy has become one of the most popular genres, simply because you are taken into a completely new world... a world of magic and mystery... where almost anything can happen. In this new series by Serena Clarke, we have an enchanting kingdom and mystical creatures that reside in the forests.
In The Treasure of Isian, Prince Garin is a brave, proud, adventure-seeking prince. Elani is his most trusted servant and she would do anything for him. Their quest to find the mystical Treasure of Isian is immediately interrupted and they find themselves confronted by giants, elves, dragons, and a vengeful water-witch. Elani must face her greatest fears to save her prince and her kingdom. Will they be able to make a great sacrifice to save the kingdom?
"The Treasure of Isian is captivating and has many twists and turns. It gives a new dimension to fantasy characters. It was difficult to put down. Not only is it a fantasy, but a sweet love story that can be enjoyed by young adult and adult alike. The devotion of Elani to her Prince was enjoyable, making the reader wonder when the Prince will see her as something more than a servant." -Author Linda Weaver Clarke
In the second book in this series, The Alliance of Isian, Isian decides to make an alliance with their long time enemies. Isian sends a proposal, offering their daughter to the prince, in order to ensure an alliance. Princess Gabrielle and Prince Alec must learn to work together and trust each other in order to triumph in the approaching war. With a mysterious beast attacking the kingdom, their lives in danger, and overcoming their vast cultural differences, will love grow despite their trials?
Reviewer Cheryl Larson wrote: "I am always intrigued by stories of arranged marriages and how they turn to marriages filled with love. There is plenty of action and intrigue in the storyline. I can't wait for the next book in the series!"
When we think of fantasy, we think of magic and mythical creatures, but it is not the same without some romance. The sweet romance in this book is suitable for both young adult and adult alike.
