String of Pearls
Scarlett Ripley, author
College student Leanna finds herself on a multi-world quest to protect our realm. One night, Leanna learns that our world is but one of many in a realm, like pearls on an infinite string. Those who keep watch over its balance, the Council of Giants, call on Leanna to train and serve as a Warrior in their ranks. Her younger sister, Violet, becomes a Sensor. But, for a self-proclaimed loner like Leanna, training alongside Warriors from other worlds is not so easy. When she and her compatriots embark on a multi-world quest to stop insurgents, Leanna fights not only wild creatures, demigods, sorcery, and criminals, but also her own dark past. Enjoy this found families story with a strong female lead who learns to lower her own iron fortress, with plenty of mythical creatures, dystopia, magic, worlds of paradise, adventure, an element of romance, and a golden dragon named Egg.
