D.C. Grace Vlog Post with D.C. Grace


Photo Content from D.C. Grace

D.C. Grace has studied various cultures of Native American society for well over twenty years. She has three daughters. The girls, being half Chiricahua Apache and Cherokee respectively, have been raised to know as much about their heritage as possible. D.C. has also been fascinated with all things supernatural since childhood. She wrote her first vampire story at the ripe old age of nine.

When she’s not trying out a new recipe or digging into a good book, D.C. can be found driving her daughters around town in her Mom Cab. She’s also a lover of music, and has passed that trait on – her middle child is the drummer in a rock band.

D.C. lives just outside Louisville, KY. She shares a home with her daughters, two crazy kitties and a neurotic Chihuahua. She considers herself lucky they let her live with them.

        



Fiction is about to have a new breed of characters never before featured! The Amethyst Dragon series will introduce you to a whole new brand of creatures, called Dragon Fae. Making their home in Avalon, Dragon Fae are half dragon and half fairy. They are rare creatures, and are the chosen protectors of the fairy realm, as well as humans in the mortal realm. Dragon Fae can take on the form of a dragon, but when in fairy form they do not have wings.

In Book One, Dragon Wings, we meet Dade Blue-Therror, the Amethyst Dragon. He is dubbed this not just for his amethyst eyes, but because he was born of a Blue clan Spring Fairy and a Red clan Summer Dragon. Dade is also Queen Mab's grandson, and heir to the throne of the Seelie Court. When he comes to the earthly realm with his family for his first assignment as Gaia's sentinel, he isn't prepared for what awaits him.

   


Shelby Mercy, high school junior and popular member of Shelbyville, Kentucky's "in crowd" has everything she ever wanted in life, including the affections of Marshall Townes, Shelby High's beloved football star. But she doesn't have the kind of adventure she reads about in her romance novels. When she literally runs into Dade at his mother's new shop on the Square, she can't get him out of her mind. But Dade isn't interested in getting involved with human girls. He avoids her at all cost, but something about her is hard to resist. The harder he fights it, the farther he falls.

Dragon Wings is a story of everlasting love, passion, fire and fury. Fairy tale meets modern romance in this exciting, thought-provoking story. As battle lines are drawn, darkness and light fight for control. And only one warrior was born to walk both light and dark - the Amethyst Dragon. But who can Dade really trust? The fairies who cannot lie, yet tell creative truths, or the mortals he has always been so suspicious of? Will he save the girl he loves and protect the two realms from the threat posed by the evil Winter Dragon?

The Amethyst Dragon series will take readers on a walk back in time, while still being firmly rooted in present day. In Dade's world, chivalry is not dead, and Avalon still exists on a plane that holds fast to simple truths. Fairy magic is real, Morgan le Fay is real, and with the help of Dade, the Amethyst Dragon, Camelot could rise again. Enjoy the stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table? This series is for you! So join us as the tale unfolds, and enter a world that few have glimpsed. Welcome to Avalon, the world of the elusive Dragon Fae. Slip through the gates, and fall in love with the Amethyst Dragon, his best friend Leo, the Sunrise Dragon, and Dade's aunt Tryamon, Keeper of the Forest. There's plenty of room, so bring your silver bough for the Ferryman. And remember, once you're there, you may never want to leave. But remember, with dragons, you can get burned...

Dragon Wings is one of those books that you will take a long time to finish, just so the story will not end. You are sucked into this magical world from the beginning and D.C. Grace continually cooks up new recipes aimed to satisfy every type of reading hunger.
The cast of characters are well developed and you are treated to different points of view throughout the book. It was great reading about each character’s thoughts, which added more depth to the already sophisticated story. The romantic link between Dade and Shelby was very strong, yet sweet.

Dade is this super romantic guy with a not-so-normal talent (he can turn into a dragon. 16 year-old Shelby has a prominent intellectual attribute and will fight for what she feels is right. When these two are together, it is a perfect chemistry of romance.

This book will turn on all of your emotions. One chapter you are excited, and it quickly turns to sadness or shock within the next chapter. I enjoyed reading about Dade and Shelby. Their love story is unique and like most people, our fascination with dragons certainly makes it that much better.
