A thousand years ago, on the world of Claire-Agon, a war raged between men and dragons.
When an expedition of elite warriors goes missing in the fetid Kero Swamp, Olivia Moross, Priestess of Astor and daughter of the regional prefect, is caught in the conflict between her divine holy order, the sinister Kesh wizards, and the nobles of the ruling class of Ulatha.
Seeking the fate of the lost expedition, and struggling to learn what might exist in the desolate Kero Swamp, Olivia finds herself battling human, beastly and supernatural forces. With the help of her father’s nobles, and an unexpected Ranger of the Arnen, she must not only save her town, but also remain true to her beliefs in the pursuit of the truth.
Olivia soon discovers that in the world of Claire-Agon, when dealing with a Black Dragon, sometimes dead is better.
Salvador Mercer loves Epic Fantasy. Having read all of Tolkien’s works, and enjoying the many wonderful stories and tales by many other countless authors, he hopes to share the same delightful experience with those who also enjoy reading in the Fantasy genre.
Thus the world of Claire-Agon was created, though imagined would be just as an appropriate word to describe this Fantasy setting. Basing the world’s evolution, magic, and history on a scientific foundation, the Claire-Agon books come alive to relate tales and stories from our not too distant neighbors orbiting Tau Ceti not twelve light years distant.
The stories are inspired by past author greats, but written and moved forward by Mercer where he sincerely hopes that the stories delight and entertain the reader. He invites you to enter the world of Claire-Agon, and hopes you share with him your experience there.
