M. Anthony Phillipsabout this book: Isabella the Jade Warrior is an action adventure story inspired by my niece Isabella and her big brother Kaelyn who are very close as young siblings go. Their spirit and protectiveness to each other inspired me one day when we were "sparring" in my living room several years ago. I was teaching them martial arts and they ganged up on me and had each other's back.
Isabella is multi-racial and sometimes seems somewhat lonely, so I also brought that to the character. Anyway in the book she finds out from her mother Jacqui that she has the gift of her ancestors going back to the Ming Dynasty period and receives an amulet that will protect her from the demons that has destroyed her predecessors including Princess Dasyn.
A celestial dragon found in the frozen mountains of Mongolia telepathically connects to Isabella and tells her he is her protector from the dark demons and to show her the powers of the amulet.
The two friends along with her family embark on a long journey back to where he was found to find his lost mate Ling Ling before the Paleontologists and demons do.
The primary readers are the same ones who love the Harry Potter tales to adults who love action adventures. It took me 5 months to write the book including researching history and backdrop of Mongolia and China. I chose this wonderful cover because it fits right in with the storyline of the dragon using magic to elude capture.
To the book lovers out there. Pick up a copy for yourself and your kids. You won't be disappointed. Also, stay tuned for more of Isabella. She'll be back.
