Mordale Subscriptions

Having returned from Blackshore, the adventures in Windriftshire conclude this coming spring in Mordale. Melodi Morgan journeys to the great city to study at last the magic that her mother knew. But there is something strange going on beneath the paved surface streets of the city. Concerned for Edvard’s assistant, Able, Melodi travels back allies where few others dare to step. She discovers in the process that there is not just one Dragon’s Bard but an entire secret community of them … and that knowingly or otherwise they are all working toward a single, hidden purpose.

Mordale is the concluding take in the Dragon’s Bard series and we invite you to join us for it’s final chapters!

Join our crew early and experience the writing process from concept stage through the final printing of the book. Get to know the authors personally, experience the journey of writing the novel and come to know others in the Blackshore community as we take this voyage together.

... and the first installment of our next Journey with the Dragon's Bard. We begin our adventure with the Dragon's bard returning to Mordale -- the city at the heart of the kingdom ruled by Reinard and Queen Nance. The Bard's Scribe, Abel, is more interested in the Enchanting Academy than the rest of the city and we soon discover why ... Melodi Morgan is finding her studies to learn about Wishcraft there to be difficult -- especially when she has a hard time getting a mouse to cooperate with her tests!

(Mass Market Edition)

When a traveling bard stumbles into a dragon s den, he is forced to tell stories to the giant, fire-breathing menace or end up being eaten for lunch. When he runs out of stories to tell, he makes a deal with the dragon in exchange for his freedom, he will return with dozens more of tales of adventure, romance, and bravery. Reminiscent of Scheherazade and 1001 Arabian Nights, Tales of the Dragon s Bard is the story of a man s quest to collect the most exciting stories he possibly can, and Eventide is the first town he encounters. With Gossip Fairies, gnomes, a centaur farmer, and a blacksmith dwarf, those living in Eventide have enough going on to keep the Dragon s Bard busy and if he feels the need to liven up those adventures a bit with his own ridiculous plots . . . well, the dragon certainly won t mind, will he?

This is the mass market edition of the first book in the Dragon's Bard series by Tracy & Laura Hickman as published by Shadow Mountain Press. These copies are not part of the original, limited-edition printing done by the authors and, as such, does not include the original section break artwork pieces nor the recipe included in the limited edition -- both by Laura Hickman. The mass market edition is also distinguished in that it has different cover artwork. These are also NOT registered with the authors nor are they numbered.
