The Dragon's Brood Cycle

Latest News

You can read Josh de Lioncourtโ€™s upcoming prequel Harmony's Song without reading The Dragon's Brood Cycle series. You can, but you won't be able to.

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

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.

— Lynette Frison

Haven Lost is a fantastic read for both fantasy beginners (it eases you into the fantasy part in a way that isnโ€™t harsh or ridiculous) and those who know the genre well. I would recommend it to anyone, and I canโ€™t wait for the second book!

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. Itโ€™s easy to get lost in the world of Haven Lost.

Legends never die…

Haven Lost โ€” The Dragon's Brood Cycle, Vol. 1
๐Ÿ”‰ Sample

Sixteen-year-old Emily Haven, hero of the girlsโ€™ 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 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. 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.

Forever is composed of nows…

Emily Haven and her friends have been given the seemingly impossible task of uniting the worldsโ€”a mission they failed once before, in another lifetime.

But Emily made a promise, and she intends to keep it. A small boy risked his life to save hers, and while Michael sets out to rejoin the Dragonโ€™s Brood, she heads east with Celine and Corbbmacc to rescue Daniel from a band of desert slavers.

Time does not stand still, however, and the dark legends are true. They deal in blue fire; they deal in death; and they travel through the long nights on autumn winds.

Samhain has come, and this year, the harvest will be in blood, gold, and souls.

๐Ÿ”‰ Sample ๐ŸŽถ Song

Life is hard for Daniel and the other kids who struggle to live on the streets of Ravenhold, a seaside city allied with the sorceress Marianne and the kingdom of Seven Skies.

Their special bond, coupled with the mystery of Harmonyโ€™s past, sends Daniel from his life on the streets to the wider world beyond.

As it is willed, so shall it be…

Treasures and Trinkets โ€” A Dragon's Brood Tale

Before she was a prisoner in Marianne's crystal mines or just another face among the multitudes in the city of Seven Skies, Maddy had a different name and everything she could wantโ€”governesses, gowns, and gold to fill her pockets. And though she wasn't the son her father had wanted, it was inevitable that one day she would inherit his title.

But Maddy's predictable world is turned upside down when an extraordinary servant girl challenges everything she's ever known; there's a wider world beyond the comfortable confines of her castle, full of wonder and magic, and Maddy finds that the one thing she doesn't have is the only thing she really needs.
