Series: The Forbidden Gems of Regalia #1
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Fantasy
Fourteen year old Emberly Tollens doesn’t dream often but when she does its never a good sign, especially when its the same dream. Some nights she would dream of the sweet nothingness of time. Other nights the voices would get louder, the running faster, and the staff colder. Ice cold. But this is just the beginning of her problems.
Things get even stranger when she finds a dangerously beautiful opal necklace lying on the ground at school. Not strange at all. And definitely not strange when your once kind of nice teacher turns into a fire-breathing creature from the past, right?
meet The Characters
Emberly Tollens: a curly haired, star-freckled faced fourteen year old girl who keeps having odd dreams about an icy staff and a mysterious hooded man. When she finds a strange necklace at school and fights a dragon with the help of a cute fire throwing boy. She’s going to become the next keeper of the magical Opal Amulet with a lot to learn!
Olive Dauwtrappen: a tall, hazel eyed teen full of mischievous and sarcasm and Emberly’s best friend with a secret. Yet not all secrets are worth keeping. Armed with a charmless charm bracelet and a witty tongue, she is a force to be reckoned with.
Max Carnelian: a cute fire throwing boy with silvery-blue star like eyes and a seemingly picture perfect family that is anything but. He’ll team up with Emberly and Olive to discover that there’s a lot more going on than what they thought.
