D. L. Gardnerabout this book: The Dragon Shield is the second novel of the Ian's Realm Saga, Deception Peak being the first, and four short stories titled A Tale of the Four Wizards are also a part of the Saga.
In book two Ian returns to the Realm older, and more determined than ever to unravel the mysteries behind the evil that has kept his friends oppressed. Unfortunately, trouble follows him through the portal and Ian must find his courage and prove his allegiance.
I've spent much of my time researching elements of my stories in the world around me. I do want to tell a little about how I sought to bring some authenticity to The Dragon Shield. For instance, in the story, the people of the northern lands live in yurts. I have some friends that have a hand made yurt and they invited me over to watch them set it up. On my blog is a step-by-step demo of setting it up.
I have the privilege of working with re enactors and SCA enthusiasts who not only help with costumes and authenticity, but they are featured in my trailers as well.
• The Dragon Shield is packed to the rafters with incident and peril. Ian's resolve is tested like never before, the camaraderie of his supporters and their combined efforts will keep the reader engrossed. — The Independent Review
