The Three Stones of Bethany



The kingdom of Bethany was once a beautiful place made up of five magical nations, each with their own special gifts. It all changed in a day, however, when the murderous dredgelings arrived. No one quite knows where they came from or how they keep multiplying, no matter how many are killed in the long, cruel war they’ve waged. 

All seems to be lost, until a human girl named Taylor is mistakenly transported to Bethany. Kane, the king over these nations, despises her whole-heartedly at first, and then she makes him laugh for the first time since the devastation began years ago. And the earthling manages to find new ways to surprise him with her valor and loyalty every single day. Unfortunately, Taylor’s only wish through their dangerous quest to reunite three magical stones and save the kingdom, aside from surviving this fearful place, is to return home.

But as fate goes, she soon discovers the only way to recapture the stones and save the lives of the royals she’s come to love as her first real family is to give up any hope of ever returning to her old life. In the end it all comes down to what sort of hero she truly is, one to her own self, or one to entire nations.

Top Ten List 

10 fun facts about me:

1.    My mom loved my middle name (Melody) so much, she gave it to my youngest sister for her first name. She always said if she’d had another girl, she would have given her Melody’s middle name (Noelle) for a first name, too.
2.    My senior year, I eloped with my high school sweetheart to Vegas. Nearly fourteen years later, we’re still madly in love!
3.    I was a first chair French horn player for years in school. I still regret giving it up.
4.    If I was a Disney fairy from Pixie Hollow, I would definitely be a winter fairy.
5.    My two sisters and I are all naturally brunettes. One stayed natural, one went with a vibrant red, and I went blond.
6.    No matter how hard I try, I can’t whistle.
7.    I live way out in the boondocks and love the seclusion.
8.    I never grew out of loving cartoons.
9.    I’m a graduate of John Casablancas Modeling and Talent Agency training program.
10. Pugs are absolutely my favorite kind of dogs, though I love all canines. 

Snippets

1.)
She flinched as she turned around, expecting to see the cops. But instead she saw three young men and a young woman. All four looked as if they couldn’t be much older than she was. They were built and dressed like warriors, with slightly pointed elfish ears and dark hair…And all four of them held swords pointed directly at her. This was a hundred times worse than the cops.


2.)
An excruciating moment passed by. And then a branch was pulled away from the window right above her head and the hands and gruesome face of a dredgeling pressed against it. Taylor opened her mouth to scream, but nothing came out. She was petrified by the blood-red eyes and four spindly, greasy-looking fingers pressed against the glass. The face grinned and then moved away. "Over heeeeeere," he sang eerily <to the others>.
