Addis Ababa, Ethiopia -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/16/2015 -- Amazon bestselling fantasy author Marc Secchia is excited to announce the release of his newest book entitled Dragonfriend also set in the same world as his bestselling dragon adventure series, Shapeshifter Dragons.

More on the Book

Coming off from a successful Shapeshifter Dragon series with remarkable titles such as Aranya, The Pygmy Dragon, and Shadow Dragon; Dragonfriend is first of a planned two-part series of tales that will follow the story of Hualiama Dragonfriend, a foundling adopted into the royal family.

It's also set on the same world but with a different character lead and offshoot story focusing on forbidden romance, deep secrets, and mighty dragon battles which the series has become renowned for. It follows the successful revolution led by humans to throw off the yoke of slavery under the draconic law in a unique world of volcanic islands that rise above the deadly Cloudlands.

"Being set on the same world as my bestselling series, this new title can be read in any order alongside any of the previous three titles making it less disruptive to the unfinished series," says Marc Secchia, the author.

For those still in doubt about this new adventure forged from the same universe, the author has made available a sample of the first two chapters on his website

Other Series

The Shapeshifter Dragon series currently contains three books but author Marc is set to release two more book sequels to Pygmy Dragon and Aranya number 3. Publication dates are not yet set but he's positive on a mid-year release for one of the two books and later in the autumn for the other. He notes that both books need written in tandem for reasons he wouldn't yet reveal as it may contain spoilers.

The series have already sold over 10,000 copies and currently rated a high 4.6 stars from over 200 reviews. The titles are also available on paperback with Aranya now also made available as an audiobook, recently released earlier this month featuring the voice of Shiromi Arsenio in an unabridged production.

Some reviews include that of Stephan J Myers, author of the Prayer exclaiming "This journey left me gasping for air while he spins a mythical yarn, achieving a notable balance between luxurious detail and intense action."

Other titles include the Shioni of Sheba and the IsleSong series with worlds of their own.
