The Dragonbonded Return Series
Book 1: Call of the Dragonbonded
Conner Stonefield is a smart though idealistic sixteen-year-old whose future could not have been brighter. Everything from his life-long vocation to whom he would marry has been planned. So when he receives the Calling and embarks on his trek to find his life-long animal bond, he is far from prepared for the adventure he would have, or the Cosmic "gift" he was about to receive.
On the other side of the realm, a headstrong Princess Veressa of Griffinrock demands secret training from her prudish yet powerful Ranger protector. She receives the Calling and drags her protector along on one last high adventure.
As the paths of these two sixteen-year-olds begin to intertwine, neither could foresee the desperate struggles before them, nor the heroic journeys they would be expected to undertake.
"Call of the Dragonbonded" is the first in a four-book epic struggle rich with diverse cultures, connections to the natural world, loyalty, camaraderie, philosophy, wit, magic, conspiracies, and murder.
