“What are you proposing?” Karah asked.
“I want to hit Groller on his head to knock him out.”
“Are you kidding me?”
“I don’t see a whole hell a lot of options!”
“And how are you going to get him to cooperate with your little scheme?”
Darien glared over to the monster that seemed to be getting closer and closer with each step. He gulped. “I’m going to be the bait.”
Karah slapped a hand to her face and groaned. “Of course you are.”
Imagine entering the world under the guise of a prince. This is what happened to Darien the Dragonslayer. A few days after his birth, Darien was taken from his family and brought to the Hemlon Kingdom, the main ruling family of Monahelm. There, he is switched with a prince that will fight alongside Darien to take the throne from his evil brother. Darien a.k.a. the Hemlon Prince Aernon is informed of his true identity on his eighteenth birthday via a magical sage, his gardener Karah, who leads the Dragonslayer to meet his fortune of foiling monsters and quelling the dark forces that threaten his community. However, Dariens biggest battle in The Legend of Darien: A Hero Rises, is trying to live up to the stories and legacy...and if he has the heart to fight against his own family.
Exciting, witty, and heartfelt, The Legend of Darien will take readers into the mythical world of Monahelm to be introduced to a wide variety of characters, dragons, and monsters. He or she will be rooting for Darien as he comes to terms with his destiny as the Dragonslayer, and will sympathize with Karah's struggle to keep him in check.
