Part 1 – Traitors or Friends
On their way to stop Butcher Lemore from hatching an evil dragon type thought long extinct, Paladin Carison Destine and Captain of the Bastion Guardsmen Orson were set upon by a murderous pack of Bluescales.
Carison’s love, Raven, is lost to them a blaze of her own power. She lives, but she has become a force that even she cannot control.
Now, with their new ally Janetha Sapphire, a Dragonslayer and also an old friend of Carison’s, they are trying to find and reach Lemore before he visits devastation upon the Realm like has never been seen before.
And hopefully, at the same time, they will be able to save Raven from herself.
But Carison has reason to believe not all of his friends are what they seem. Or who they say.
Part 2 – Betrayal
Carison Destine is facing the most dangerous task of his dragonslayer career.
He and his companions Janetha Sapphire and Captain Orson are planning to attack the Butcher Lemore in his stronghold of dragons. They’ll need all the help they can get.
Especially now that Raven, sorceress and Carison’s lover, has empowered herself with dark power. She may have gone beyond his ability to save her. She may be a greater danger than either Lemore or the dragons.
And Carison may be her only hope.
Janetha recruits two more dragonslayers to help them. One an old friend, one that Carison has never met. And in the mix of all of these friends and comrades stands a traitor. Someone Carison will never see coming.
Until it’s too late.
Part 3 – The Hatching
Paladin Carison Destine has found himself taken prisoner at the hands of people he called friends.
Everyone he has ever cared about is either lost to him, or turned traitor.
He finds himself tied down in the stronghold of Butcher Lemore, surrounded by dragons of every sort and description. And in the center of them all lays Y’sil’ki, the Redscale female playing hatch mother to the coveted Diamondscale egg that will make Lemore ruler of all dragon kind.
Lemore promises to make Carison the Diamondscale’s first meal. So as one-time friends and allies look on, Lemore prepares to receive the newborn Diamondscale as its master.
But treachery cuts both ways.

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
There is that moment in every writer’s life when they decide they are tired of hoping to one day write professionally, and decide it is time to get noticed. Breaking into the writing business does not have to be a complicated venture. Making yourself marketable and shining above the competition is very important and takes a lot of work. By creating a portfolio, perfecting your writing techniques, and creating a blog you will be taking the first vital steps to being a successful, and paid, professional writer.
Ruth Ford Elward, a story teller of Mystery and Thrillers. “I love mysteries, whether it be solving a crime that’s been committed or finding a long lost artifact that could change the world or how to thwart a plot to regain a kingdom. Another love of mine is thrillers, because the pace is faster and the hero has to be more resourceful than the often better equipped villain,” says Ruth.
After years in the business world between managing a division for an international financial printing company, modeling in her spare time and later to performing esthetic treatments, Ruth decided her real passion lies in the world of writing.
“Writing keeps the mind sharp and gives me the opportunity to exercise my imagination to engage the reader,” says Ruth. “One of my greatest joys is to be able to lose myself in my writing. So my writing ranges from Mystery, Suspense, Thrillers which includes the areas of International Mystery and Crime, Paranormal Mystery, Spy Thrillers and Speculative Fiction to the various challenges of aging in Non-Fiction.”
Ruth lives in Colorado and enjoys biking, golfing and ballroom dancing in her spare time.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
It’s not what but who inspired me to write. Since most people know Katie Couric from her television career, with her long stint on “The Today Show” and more recently with her own talk show, Katie ‘Talk That Matters’, you may find it strange that I as a fiction author, consider her a writing inspiration.
She may be most famous for writing an extremely touching book about her husband’s death from colon cancer, when in fact, she’s actually written over a dozen books.
To date, Katie has written numerous books for adults and children alike. She touches on topics that most other authors wouldn’t dare. In addition, she’s also co-authored many books on health, fashion, and social issues.
