VILLAIN KEEPER (The Last Draogn Charmer #1)

 Unexpected magic, villainous teachers, and dragons in disguise await…

All his life, Prince Caden has dreamed of being sent on a quest to slay a dragon. But before he has the chance, he is ripped from his home in the Winterlands of Razzon and finds  himself in Asheville, North Carolina—a land with no magic and no dragons. But a prince must always complete his quest. And the longer Caden is in Asheville, the more he realizes  there is magic in this strange land after all. More important, there may just be dragons here, too. But what if Caden’s destiny isn’t to slay a dragon, like he’s always believed?

Critical Praise:

“Kids will delight in Caden’s adventures and struggles.” — ALA Booklist

“A promising new series.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Invites readers to look at their own world with an eye to magic.” — School Library Journal

QUEST MAKER (The Last Dragon Charmer #2)

First sent to slay a dragon, now he must make a pact with one…

When mysterious magic transported Prince Caden from the Greater Realm to seemingly normal Asheville, North Carolina, he was shocked to discover it was home to the most dangerous villains ever banished from his homeland. And that a great and powerful Elderdragon rules them all.

Now Caden suspects that dark forces are conspiring on both sides of the magical divide between his world and this one. The Elderdragon gives Caden a quest: uncover the dangerous plan and protect the Greater Realm from banished villains hungry for revenge. Because if they find a way home before Caden can, everyone he loves may be in danger.

Critical Praise:

“McKay juxtaposes hoary fantasy tropes against 21st–century reality with verve. A sometimes–amusing, sometimes–thrilling, and always entertaining sequel that hints that math might be used for evil and the mystery lunch might pack a deadly surprise.” — Kirkus Reviews

REALM BREAKER (The Last Dragon Charmer #3)

Stop the spell, defeat the enemy, charm the dragon, save two realms… 

In this fantastical finale to The Last Dragon Charmer series, a young prince from a fantasy realm finds himself trapped in the seemingly normal world of Asheville, North Carolina—and must defeat unexpected evil in order to find his way home.

Asheville goes by another name in Prince Caden’s homeland of Razzon: the Land of Shadow, a place where the most vile villains are sent to live out their days disguised as ordinary middle school teachers. But the villains are no longer content to stay trapped in Asheville. They are plotting to go home, overthrow Caden’s father the King, and take over.

Caden will do anything to protect his homeland and his family. But preventing the villains from completing a mysterious four-part spell and breaking the barrier between realms is no small task.

He will need the help of his brave friends—and his special gift to charm a ravenous Elderdragon. And if Caden and his friends can save his home, he might finally be able to return to it.

  1. Just finished reading….and I was delightfully surprised! Trying to explain to students that people from another realm end up in Asheville is sometimes…well it sounds weird to them (LOL) but I really enjoyed it and it’s different twist. It kept me guessing and reading! I can’t wait to share it with our students here in Asheville, as I work in a middle school library here. Now that I’m done, I can let them check it out! 😉 Even better would be if you had any interest in coming to talk to our students, we would love to have you speak to classes!!!

      • I bet! So looking forward to reading it.
        It only took me three days to finish the first two books…. I don’t know how I’ll EVER wait a whole year!!
        But I’m sure it’ll be worth it:)
        Thanks for getting back to me!
