The launch is timed to take advantage of the premiere of The Game of Thrones on HBO this Sunday.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Demons Want to Kill Him – Dragons Mean to Save Him
Just in time for Christmas in July, “The Game of Thrones” without the gore.
July 13, 2017, Aurora, Colorado, USA
On July 15, mages, demons, and a talisman that controls dragons plague first born son and heir Thomas Arach. An intriguing debut novel, Red Dragon’s Keep is the first book in The Dragon’s Children Young Adult fantasy series by local Aurora, Colorado author Natli VanDerWerken.
“Red Dragon’s Keep grew out of a fairytale I told my grandchildren one Christmas Eve,” Natli said. “They were tired and cranky getting ready to leave for home, so I told them a story. It was about five children in a castle with dragons, magic swords and a threat of invasion from a mysterious source. They loved it. Their parents did too, sitting down in coats and boots to listen.”
Natli fell in love with Science Fiction and Fantasy when she was 12. She has always loved the idea of dragons – the myths and the stories. She thought she might be a veterinarian, a chemical engineer, or an astronaut. She became a meteorologist in the Navy instead.
A mother and grandmother, Natli is a website designer, quilter, and raises Shetland Sheepdogs.
Red Dragon’s Keep is a coming of age action packed Young Adult novel. Fourteen year old Thomas Arach wants desperately to earn his father’s respect. After danger threatens, will his father finally let him learn how to fight? Sabotage and treason change Thomas’s life forever.
Red Dragon’s Keep pulls the reader into a world filled with secret passages, amulets and talismans, magic and Swords of Light. Will Thomas learn the lessons of war, master the magic hidden in his blood, find the Dragon Amulet, and manage the defense of his family’s home before the Demons arrive? Can he bring everything together to save Red Dragon’s Keep?
