Book Description

OUTCAST is Book #1 in the Groundbreaking series THE BLUE DRAGON'S GEAS, followed by THE BLACKGUARD. (Book#2)

This debut of a series into the coming of age fantasy genre has made a definite splash. A wondrous mixture of the childlike main character and mature themes to quote one five star reviewer. It is the introduction into a whole new fantasy world with unique cultures, dragons and magic.

Alador, a young man who cannot find a way to fit into the world about him, finds himself thrust into the limelight. With a brand new world, new customs and of course dragons, Outcast offers something for both epic fantasy and coming of age readers.

Alador wants nothing more then to fit into the world that rejects him due to his mixed heritage. He does not fit into the world of his mother and he can't seem to bring to life the power of his father. And then of course, there is a girl.

Renamaum, a great blue dragon, wants to restore the pact between man and dragon that time and greed have erased. He petitions the council to find one who will fight for the future of both dragon and mortal.

Both come crashing together when Alador is caught in a geas so strong that neither could abandon it, even in death.

    More About the Author

    I am Cheryl and go by Cheri. I am a.. never mind my age.. older woman with grand-kids. However, my heart is forever young and I hope I never grow up. I was born in Upland, CA. I have four wonderful children and four beautiful grandchildren. I started adult life as a mother. I went back to school and got my teaching degree. Between teaching positions, I ended up working in a prison on the coast of Washington State. This led to gaining credentials and a license to be an addictions counselor. This unique combination has allowed me to interview hundreds of personalities over my career. I love the uniqueness of human beings and have worked hard to make sure I build this into my characters. I want each major character to have a form and manner that makes them unique from the rest.

    A diagnosis of cancer slowed me down a bit until I got into the routine of chemotherapy. On September 25, 2014, I took a leap of faith and left my career as a counselor to take care of myself for awhile and to write full time. My last dose of chemo was in March, 2015. Now, we wait to see if it really went into remission. My next goal is to get the 4th book, Pseudo-Dragon, released before August.

    I have been an avid reader of all things fantasy and science fiction. I have been a GM for dungeons and dragons for 25 years. Yes, I played when the original books came paperback in a little red box. And now... I have dated myself!

    I love the fantasy world because it taps into the creative mind. I have always been one who could visualize what I read and so fantasy became a colorful escape to lands of mystical beasts, fantastic quests and where the hero really does save the day. Since becoming a more mature reader and writer, I have found writing can be an avenue to learning and teaching while still enjoying that creative mind-scape. I have worked in a world where the hero doesn't always win and sometimes beloved characters fall and don't get back up.

    From these experiences of reading, role playing and writing, the world of Vesta came to life. Vesta has it's own map, weather and history. It is filled with its own races, beasts and unique attributes. Because I have developed my own world, I found I was not limited by Tolkien views of elves and dragons. I could expand on the magic of dragons and mystic powers. Many artists, writers and other role players have contributed to make Vesta what it is when I finally put pen to paper. Welcome... and I hope you enjoy my unique world of fantasy novels and children's books.

    By Lucinda
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This exciting, new Young Adult novel brilliantly combines classic high fantasy with an intriguing backdrop. A coming-of-age tale that transports you on a fantastical journey, where dreams and reality merge together in the most remarkable way! As a fan of Harry Potter, Dragons and popular Inheritance Cycle I was very interested by this new work that captured my imagination instantly. Outcast: book 1 of the Blue Dragon's Geas is an inspired work of extraordinary premise that sets the standard high for book 2.

    The hero of this tale Alador is a deeply complex, fascinating character whose search for a sense of acceptance in life is admirable. When he encounters blue Dragon Renamaum it is the start of a powerful bond and magnetic partnership... The future for both Dragons and mortals is an uncertain one, with their link being erased over time. Both the hero and his Dragon go on an epic, unforgettable quest to fight for both mortal and beast to coexist harmoniously within a magical world.

    At times I felt as though I had plunged into an original `take' on Christopher Paolini's Eragon, although somewhat different on world-building and the history behind the Dragon - human relationship. Cheryl's inspired concepts and vivid settings encapsulate a sublime fantasy setting, in which many spellbinding discoveries are just waiting to be had. I was most impressed by this enjoyable first novel of such scope, which is set to be the beginning of something vast and of great magnitude. This book is ideal for the young reader who delights in action-packed, magical stories containing colourful fire-breathing Dragons.

    As a first novel I would rate this at 3. 5 stars

    5.0 out of 5 stars This story soars on dragons' wings... 8 Jun. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Cheryl Matthynssens is a master of her craft. She suspends her readers’ disbelief early on with exquisite detail in her opening four chapters about the Daezun, from the structure of their village through the appearance and habits of the korpen (their beasts of burden) to the distinct advantages of Ketchen’s lucrative invention of a more efficient plowhead. The way the Daezun control the lives of everyone in their community reminded me of Lois Lowry’s “The Giver” (one of my favourite children’s books). You see and hear and taste and touch and feel this place and everyone in it.
    The characterisation is assured. The main character has the classic elements of the legendary hero: an outsider in childhood, apparently clumsy – less adroit than the practical, efficient, ‘pure-bred Daezun’ (his father was Lerdenian, a race skilled in magic). Alador has hidden strengths which he doesn’t understand, and has been chosen by a dragon for an essential mission: to persuade different races and classes of creature to respect their differences. His mother is down-to-earth, solid and lacking in patience (she has a hard time waiting for water to boil), yet loving her children equally, and the square peg Alador for being so obviously his father’s son.
    Of course for evil to be overcome it has first to be present and personified. The bullying oaf Trelmar in the Daezun village who made Alador’s childhood a misery is nothing compared to the calculatingly cruel, self-regarding Luthian, Minister of Silverport, the fifth and highest tier in the Lerdenian hierarchy. He it was who instigated the practices that led to the birth of the cross-breed Alador.

    Was great, type of genre that I love. I would have rated it higher but there was one thing in the book that annoyed me but to mention it would spoil part of the book. I like the world it's set in not experienced one like it before.

    Being a free read I did not know what to think. Well this was a great read with the author taking the reader on a rollercoaster ride of emotions just like the character. I would recommend this book to anyone. Will defiantly be buying the second book and happy to pay for it.
