The Dreughan #1

August 21, 2016


Vilda lives in a muddy little corner of the world, in the time of the war that never ends. The war between the Waterfolk and the Dreughan. She is different where conformity is important, break rules in a world where punishments are given freely, and she pays for it. If it weren't for her best friend Troy, she would have no one. 

Then Vilda saves the life of a dragon and shortly after that, things are spiraling out of control. The Waterfolkattack, searching for an unclaimed girl, and Vilda has to escape through the night together with Troy and the only other girl the Waterfolk could be looking for – their former best friend, Susannah.

Soon, they find themselves in Dragoncourt, the stronghold of the Dreughan, where a prophecy predicts that the war will finally come to an end when the beautiful Dreughan prince has claimed another royal from the end of the world. 

It seems as if Vilda is the girl in the prophecy, and she might be, but she also has a strong link to a young man with black hair and eyes as blue as the summer skies – the prince’s cousin, Drake...

About the Author:
The proper way to put it here would probably be to describe how I love to play with our two big dogs, adore my fantastic daughters and how much I love to read.
Another way would be to use my imagination and then I would be a super powerful warrior woman, think Xena the warrior princess (though with less tacky clothes). Or when I think of it, maybe I'm actually more of a Hercule Poirot (sans the suit and moustache). Or maybe I'm like Aragorn, strong and cool and then I might get to meet Gandalf! Or I could be Bella's pretty cousin and snap Jacob up in a second (yeah, I'm so not team Edward), or wait, maybe I could be like one of them heroines in historical novels who swoon all the time. I've always wanted to swoon…
Well, I guess you get how my mind is working (or not working, some say). Anyways, I like to write. Stories, adventures, romantic and happy stuff mixed up with sorrow and hardship, and bit of laughter here and there because the way I see it – life is way too short to go around feeling grumpy.

The Dreughan #2
Everyone knows that Susannah is a good girl. Beautiful, accomplished, calm and polite. What they don’t know is that she’s also another girl, one who is hot-tempered, brave – and an expert at throwing knives.

The three friends have settled in Dragoncourt and Susannah is happier than she’s ever been. Or she would be, if it wasn’t for the prophecy that predicts the prosperous times coming after the war that never ends. They have started to suspect that the next piece of the prophecy predicts that Sannah is bound by fate to Kee, the beautiful Prince of Dragoncourt. The golden one. The only one who acutely dislikes Susannah.

They travel with a group of Dreughan to the settlement at the Mountain Tip, hoping to find out what happened to Michael, the young man who helped then escape from the Waterfolk. They’ve heard that he didn’t die after all, and they’re hoping to find him in the settlement. 

Suddenly life is becoming more and more confusing to Susannah. Life at the Mountain Tip is familiar and safe, but Kee isn’t who she thought he was, and she starts to realize that maybe she isn't a settled girl anymore. 

Then disaster strikes and Sannah has to let go of the good girl. She has to lie and deceive her way straight into Pantano, the stronghold of the Waterfolk, and she’ll have to do bad things in the name of love and fury. 

In the end, she has to decide, is she the good girl or the wild one? Or can she be both?

The Dreughan #3
Troy finally has what he always wanted, a place where he belongs. Vilda and Sannah are like sisters to him, and through them, he has a place in their Dreughanfamily. There is nothing he wouldn’t do for his family, he’s already killed for them and he would do it again, without remorse. 

The Waterfolk called for a meeting to discuss how to end the war that never ends, and Troy is asked to be a part of a small group that goes with Brock, the General of the Dreughan, to the negotiations. He's happy to be chosen, to be trusted, but he also has another reason for going. They suspect that Valerian of the Waterfolkcould be his half-brother, and Troy is eager to take a look at the man. This turns out to be more complicated than he thought, because the Waterfolk seem to recognize him immediately, and neither Troy nor his family can understand why. 

As a part of the negotiation, it is decided that a group of Dreughan will visit Pantano, the main village of the Waterfolk, and Troy is going with them. It soon becomes clear to him that, whether he likes it or not, he has more than one family. 

Troy’s warrior friend Mal and Drake's sister Rinna are also part of the group and they’re all happy to be in the beautiful village, but strange things are happening, things that no one can explain. Slowly they start to suspect that someone wants to keep the war going. 

Then Troy has to do everything he can to protect his family, his families. If he succeeds, then it would help ending the war, but it looks like he will have to pay a high price.
