New Release: Areion by Lela Grayce

2017-220 Lela Eder Areion b01

Turning 18 is a highlight of every teenager’s life. Or at least it is for Wendy and her twin sister DeeDee. When their adoptive parents gift them with medallions belonging to their late mother, they have no idea their lives are about to change.
Their happy day takes a near-deadly turn when Wendy is lured into the forest surrounding their home by a deceitful voice. Saved by an alluring, green-eyed stranger, questions are brought to light that she may not want the answers to.
Even though Wendy and DeeDee were sent to Earth to be raised far from the darkness, they must return to their home world to unite their people. They will face war, hidden truths, and betrayal in order to save their kingdoms and free their people before it’s too late.

Areion is the first book in the Lunar Medallion Series.

COVER REVEAL:Unlocked by Casey L. Bond

Editor: Stacy Sanford/ The Girl with the Red Pen

Princess Raya of Paruth lived alone on a deserted island in a towering lighthouse, forgotten by time. With only a loyal albatross as a friend, she had little hope or joy in her life until he washed up on her shore in the middle of a raging winter storm.

Prince Trevor of Galder left his father and kingdom behind to travel north in search of a wife. It was time to settle down and forget Ella Carina, the woman who chose to love a peasant and follow her heart instead of choosing Trevor and fulfilling her duty to her people. He didn’t heed the warnings about the North Sea in winter, and his ship, crew, and captain paid the price.

Raya and Trevor must work together to find a way off the island, or risk being trapped there for the rest of their lives. But sometimes the simplest lessons are the hardest, and each will have to learn that the only thing that can truly set you free is love.
