THE BOOK: Ariel: The First Guardian
PUBLISHED IN: 2016
THE AUTHOR: Sydney Scrogham
THE EDITOR: Lindsey Rayner Barnes and Wil Scott
THE PUBLISHER: Agalrae Creative
SUMMARY: Abuse survivor Ariel Harte doesn’t need anyone. Ever. But her companion animal is infected with a dark, magical force. Only an ancient purification ritual, the mind link, performed with another human can cure this infection.
Ariel must ask her ex-boyfriend, Ryan Tracey, for help.
But she’s racing time. She’s infected, too. All the walls will have to come down so Ariel can heal or she will lose herself to the darkness forever.
Ariel: The First Guardian is a story of true love that wins over time, the power of second chances, and redemption from abuse. This is a prequel to Chase in the Guardians of Agalrae series but can be enjoyed as a standalone novel.
THE BACK STORY: I wrote this story to get over a bad breakup.
WHY THIS TITLE?: To follow after the theme of my first book, Chase, and then emphasize Ariel was the first of her kind.
WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO READ IT? It’s about healing from sexual abuse, but that happens in a fantasy setting. It’s been very powerful for readers and they tell me they can relate to it even if they haven’t been through abuse. Everyone knows what it’s like to be in a dark place.
REVIEW COMMENTS: See Amazon page.
AUTHOR PROFILE: I love creating happy endings and pushing people to pursue their dreams. It’s my belief that we each have a purpose, a voice, a passion that matters in this world. I started writing when I was 12. There were many late nights spent acting out story lines with Breyer model horses and Bionicle Legos. When I’m not writing, I’m at the barn with Snowdy or catching up on reruns of the best TV show ever – Castle.
AUTHOR COMMENTS: “I hope that readers will realize they can be free from what holds them back and experience loving relationships with others that are healthy.”
