The Dragon's Brood Cycle

Legends never die; they just go into hiding …

Sixteen-year-old Emily Haven, heroine of the girls’ hockey team at Lindsey High, has spent her young life keeping two secrets: her rapidly deteriorating home life and the seemingly supernatural power that makes her a star on the ice. When she begins seeing visions of a lost and ragged boy reflected in mirrors and shop windows, a series of events unfolds that tears her from twenty-first century Minneapolis and leaves her stranded in another world with horrors to rival those she has left behind. Lost amidst creatures of fantasy and legend, she is forced to confront the demons of both her past and future to unravel the riddle of the mysterious boy and embark upon a journey to uncover long forgotten histories and the dark, cloaked figure in the shadows behind them all. Caught between opposing forces of a war she does not understand, Emily must find new strength within herself and, above all, the will to remember her friends.

Haven Lost: the Dragon's Brood Cycle, Vol. 1. A bronze plaque, engraved with the image of an entwined rose and clover, is mounted on a set of large, oak doors.

This book and series has the potential to sky-rocket into the forefront of youth and teen reading, becoming the next Harry Potter series.


Just a great, riveting, absorbing start to a what I hope will be a long-lived series. The characters are familiar without being cookie-cutter stereotypes. Mr. Lioncourt has obviously walked the land of his story and memorized every rift and roll of the landscape.

This story isn't just about magic and battles, it's about personal growth, the value of friendship, and Emily's courage to follow her own heart.

You can read Josh de Lioncourt’s upcoming prequel HARMONY'S SONG without reading THE DRAGON'S BROOD CYCLE series. You can, but you won't be able to.

- Christie Stratos

That attention to detail thrives throughout the book. Everything from the wondrous locations the characters visit, all the way to the combat, is very richly described and easy to imagine. It’s easy to get lost in the world of Haven Lost.
