Kindle Countdown Deal – The Legend of the Taken Ones (Gateskin Chronicles Book 1) Begins 12/13/22 and Ends 12/17/22!

Christmas will soon be upon us. I’m offering some great Kindle Countdown Deals to help you with your choices for Christmas gifts. I hope at this time you picked up your copy of my first deal which ends 12/12/22 The Misunderstood Angel (Branyrd the Angel Series Book 1). There is still time – today 12/12/22 is the last day!!

The next deal is for my epic fantasy series – The Legend of the Taken Ones (Gateskin Chronicles Book 1) which begins 12/13/22 and ends 12/17/22 at $1.99. This is the beginning of an adventure series involving wizards, fairies, sprites, strange creatures and evil characters who threaten the lands. Let the Adventures Begin! Grab your copy before it returns to the original price of $4.99. Be prepared to read the next book afterwards, The Unknown Territory (Gateskin Chronicles Book 2). More books coming in 2023 and beyond!

This is Book 1 of a fantasy series that will have six books in all. In this book learn about the three children of King Gateskin and his wife, Queen Solinara. The children have had powers since they were quite young..

Serena was three years old when she learned of her power to move objects with her mind. Her brother, Simon, can fly and their sister, Catalina, can become invisible or blend into her surroundings. They live with their parents in Sovorotskina, the Land of Light.

With these powers comes responsibility. The children must try to use their powers for the common good and responsibly to help others. The three children befriend a Sprite named Spindle who accompanies them on their adventure. Along the way they meet up with their aunt and uncle, their mother’s brother and his wife, Wizard Hotenfaran and Fairy Procelina. The group must travel into the evil land of Parotovina, Land of Darkness, to save King Gateskin, who was kidnapped, and also rescue some of the descendants of their friends and fellow Sovorotskinans who were captured and taken by the Evil Ones. These descendants have been waiting a long time to be free to return to the villages of their ancestors.

The children have many trials and adventures along the way. Will they be able to rescue their father and fellow Sovorotskinans without endangering their own lives? Will the evil King Kaposkaran and his Queen Beregina stop Serena and her siblings from being successful or will they turn Serena and her siblings to their dark ways?

Writing fantasy is fun but can be challenging as I have mentioned before in other posts. I have started book 3 but haven’t gotten too far as yet. I plan to really get into the story after I publish two other books in 2023. It will take all my energy and creativity to complete it.

This is my book trailer made through Animoto.

In the meantime I hope you will enjoy book 1 and venture further into the lands in book 2. The series was written for young adults 15+ or younger as long as they are not frightened easily by the creatures in this series.

Remember – Kindle Countdown Deal will end 12/17/22 on The Legend of the Taken Ones (Gateskin Chronicles Book 1) and it will go from $1.99 to its original price of $4.99. So hurry and grab your copy during this time. Happy reading!

Thank you for stopping by to read this post and for your kind support of my books and blog. Please come back again soon.

Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
