The Ivory Queen
Deborah Jarvis, author
After making her way to the southern part of Keyralisthmus, Deirdre is preparing to cross the desert in hopes of finding the lost shaper clans and learning the secret to calling on the aid of the elusive dragons. Once across the desert, the centaur shaman, K'ha Vrenil, has promised to guide them through the jungle beyond the mountains. Setting off with the shaman; the white wolf, Nersh; the thief, Jack Parns; his partner in crime, Rontil Moullard; and the transformed prince, Benjamin, Deirdre finds herself struggling to gain complete control over her powers and understand her growing magical connection to the minotaur. With the prospect of having to choose which world she really belongs in, Deirdre makes her way towards reaching her final goal - calling on the dragons and mastering her own gifts of magic and shape shifting. Her completion of the quest will bring her face-to-face with her deepest fears and lead her to find out what, and even who, she was truly meant to be.
