embers new cover

“A ray of light, a stain of shadow, shall endure to breathe life and death into the future”

The war between the Guardians and the Shadow Riders ended in total devastation. The final battle killed all the dragons and left nothing but fields of ash. A small clutch of dragon eggs was all that remained to provide hope for the future.

Five hundred years later, the ability to use magic is a death sentence and dragons are remembered as a curse. But the unhatched dragons sing for their riders…and six lives will be changed forever.

The elements of magic are drawn together as the dragons’ call leads them on a journey where they learn everything they’ve been taught to believe about magic and dragons is wrong.

With the last of the dragons and the world at stake, they will risk everything to heed the call.

But an evil from the past rises again. Shadow Dragons ride the dawn once more…

Chasing Vengeance with Author @DreaDamara

Fans of spy thrillers will enjoy Drea Damara’s latest offering Chasing Vengeance, mission one in the Trinity Missions series. Read on to learn about the author’s experience stationed overseas and her inspiration for this novel.

Chasing Vengeance by Drea Damara

“The Birth of the Trinity Missions” by Drea Damara

I’ve never felt such miserable, suffocating heat and stench as I did in Iraq and Afghanistan while wearing all of my military gear. It left me constantly dreaming and wishing for snow and fresh air. So when I imagined what I would do after the war, I envisioned chasing an enemy through the snow. I couldn’t picture doing anything else at the time—it’s what I thought I was meant to do; what I had to do. The only peculiarity which struck me was dreaming about snow and wishing for a less wretched battlefield.

Chasing Vengeance by Drea Damara

One night my colleagues were standing around discussing what they would do after the war: buy a fancy car, travel, apply for a particular job. One of them chimed in, “I want crickets,” which made all the guys laugh. He wanted to sit in silence on his back porch, in peace, and listen to the sound of crickets at night. I knew then that all I wanted too was crickets—to live in peace, and that was okay. I packed up the dream of hunting a new enemy in the snow, came home to the crickets, and began to write the missions that had kept my mind entertained during all those sleepless nights overseas.

People in a combat zone are like worker bees in a hive. Everyone has their own role to focus on, sometimes blinding them to how everyone’s actions are interwoven into a bigger picture. Intel workers have to keep that bigger picture constant in their minds with every move. The physical dangers are often less taxing than those of infantry soldiers, but the mental pressure of keeping those soldiers alive by solving puzzles is a constant torment.

There seems to be a stereotypical portrayal in literature and film about espionage heroes being tough CIA agents or former Navy SEALs. The intel community encompasses all walks of life: the physically weak and the mild mannered along with the mighty. I wanted to show the true diversity in Chasing Vengeance, to show indigenous people who take great risks fighting against their own countries, that women are involved and highly capable in this field, and to never discredit the elderly who’ve been in the game long enough to know things the young could never possibly understand.

These people aren’t glamorous. The work is not glamorous. It’s frustrating. As an intel collector, you’re usually all alone, left with only your wits and judgment. Someone is always trying to kill people of any nation. People in this field are aware of that. They never receive accolades. Rather, they are haunted by the secrets they’ve seen and can never reveal, jaded by the harsh realities of the darkest forms of mankind.

This combination constructs a band of comrades who are what I have deemed “all alone together.” There’s never just one hero, because no one will ever be a hero. Chasing Vengeance has three main protagonists for this very reason. In writing this, I wanted to create a fresh spin on the espionage/thriller genre while also mirroring reality.

About Chasing Vengeance

Never reveal your secrets…

Trinity, an intelligence organization known only through whispers, specializes in covert action. Heading up this modern-day operation is founder Gerry Strakner and his team of skilled misfits. The key to staying alive lies within their code: never divulge your greatest fears or darkest secrets. But sometimes the past refuses to stay buried…

While his organization is under attack, Gerry must let his favorite operative, Caria, fend for herself against a vicious arms dealer. When he learns that she is caught in the crosshairs, his only hope is he’s taught her enough to stay alive.

Now Gerry must call in an old favor to save Caria. Ivan Skavinsk, a reclusive mercenary, is the one man skilled enough to infiltrate the playing field of assassins. But which side is he truly working for? Does loyalty have an expiration date or will deception burn everyone within its reach?
