The dragons have mysteriously vanished from the lands of Valadae––except one.
With no memory of his past, or what happened to his kin, Laeka’Draeon begins the daunting quest for answers, well aware the stakes are more than personal.
If the dragons fail to return and restore the waning magic of the legendary towers of Klonnoth Aire, the consequences could bring about the return of an ancient and devastating enemy.
The peace of the eleven kingdoms hangs in the balance, and only Laeka’Draeon can set things right.

About the Author

Naomi confesses the best word to describe her is: whimsical. Forget “the girl next door” and think more along the lines of “the girl from the next galaxy over” and you’d be closer to the correct personality categorization. She is an unequivocal day-dreamer, anime enthusiast, partisan of fantastical things, and unshakable devotee to story-telling. When not immersed in her written and illustrative projects, Naomi can be found wandering the worlds created by others, either between the pages of a book or across the sweeping digital scapes of console games. Part geek, part monster-slayer, with a heart for the pure and the wondrous, Naomi endeavours to remind people that a little bit of beautiful strangeness is a good thing to have in this crazy world. Currently, she lives on the Gold Coast, Australia, with an assortment of cats and family members.

Title: A World to Discover “Kin Seeker” by N.R. Eccles-Smith Reviewed by R.E. Views 6/28/15 6:17 p.m. What if you couldn’t remember who you were? Kin Seeker, a fantasy novel by N.R. Eccles-Smith, creates a plot centered on asking this question. The story begins with a dragon, Laeka’Draeon, waking up outside a cave alone with no recollection of his past. He eventually learns that all the dragons have disappeared except for him, but why? On his quest to find what happened he battles monsters, gains friends, and journeys farther than he ever imagined. Eccles-Smith creates a world where the creatures and settings expand the imagination, as well as allow the characters to experience relatable emotions. Using a combination of known mythological creatures and ones created by the author, the world feels familiar yet brand new. And though the main characters are all young they learn about friendship, loss, and destiny. This story clearly distinguishes between good and evil, while offering an enjoyable story to young readers; however, while this is an interesting tale some may find issues with the vocabulary, the unclear character personalities, and the plot. The tone of the book is lighthearted and the writing style lends itself to a younger audience. In contrast, the vocabulary is difficult, especially in regard to descriptions of the settings. Parents be advised, this is not a hindrance because even if the reader does not understand the exact word, the context is clear. As for some of the characters’ personalities, at times they are inconsistent but remain likeable. And lastly, there were moments that didn’t add to the plot nor move the story along. Despite some of the hang-ups I would recommend this book to children who enjoy fantasy books and who are looking for one with a more challenging vocabulary. I give Kin Seeker 4 out of 5 stars Best Wishes, R.E. Views

A high fantasy I was so excited to finally get the kindle for Kin Seeker. And starting to read, I was really surprised of the intensity, strength and wonder of the story. I also love the cover. With a startling waking up in a cave and finding himself to be a dragon and realizing that he had lost his memory. On his journey to find himself, he met lots of different creatures trying to help him find his kin and get his memory back. He found out that he has to go to the towers of Konnoth Aire. On the way he finds Fargo, the shadow ghost, captain Volten Vagel on the winged reptile beast ghoshmyls. The Hongrin Priest, Opel Eyes and the filly unicorn with the name of Ubi. They all help the dragon and gave him the name Leaka&rsquo;Draeon. He has to go through dark realm, dark magic, dark woodsites. Leaka&rsquo;Draeon has to follow the threads already tied to his fate is to seek out the support and influence of those bound to him by allegiance. Listening to others, because he never is alone. There is always somewhere there for him. Gemeinschaft. The power grows everywhere. He was told to find what he has lost and rely on Ubi, the filly unicorn. The green scaly dragon then relized, whatever obstacles were thrown at him and he has to tackle them, he has to stay alive to keep Ubi save. As Belzor, the prophet said to Leaka&rsquo;Draeon: &ldquo;My dear young dragon, what a puzzle you are. You may be the last dragon, but you are not alone in your desire to find your kind. You have a determined old satyr, an eager little Mifflin and a charming young unicorn waiting for you. Yyou are not alone. Leaka&rsquo;Draeon never gave up for his life and the lives of his friends, pressing on with finding his kin. I actually can't wait for the next to read. Highly recommend that book to everyone. I just loved it.

Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite With the aid of a filly unicorn, full of spirit, an enormous guardian of the forest, and a phantom which chills one to the bone with its eyes, Laeka&rsquo;Draeon, the last of the dragons, must venture into places that he has never seen before and realms that are wrought with peril in Kin Seeker: Book One of Dragon Calling by N.R. Eccles-Smith. He is in search of his missing kin in an attempt to restore the magical fortress and turrets of Klonnoth Aire. If the fortress at Klonnoth Aire cannot be restored before the return of an enemy with incredible destructive powers from archaic times, there will be nothing left of his home. The kingdoms around him, which are already in a shambles, will be lost as well. The first challenge that he must overcome, however, is his loss of memory. He has no clue how the towers fell and how the dragons disappeared. With his unlikely entourage in tow, Laeka&rsquo;Draeon sets out on an adventure in order to restore his life and the lives of those around him. N.R. Eccles-Smith establishes a story line and a set of characters that not only capture the imagination with their creativity and vivid personalities, but also lead the reader on a quest of self-discovery as well. Not only is this a story of restoring a fortress and towers and being united with one&rsquo;s family, but it is a story of how one might face numerous challenges and overcome them in spite of overwhelming odds. It illustrates how the gifts of different individuals combine to make a group that can come together and overcome the odds. This is an inspiring tale, full of adventure and suspense. It is certainly an awesome introduction into a larger series which is sure to capture the attention of a huge following.
