Remnants of Severed Chains is a collection of over forty new poems by Kyrian Lyndon, author of A Dark Rose Blooms. This book continues with the same intensity as A Dark Rose, running the gamut of complex emotions that resonate with many. The author explains in the book's preface that Remnants is about the process of healing and recovery, the willingness to learn and evolve. Thus, she embraces life's astounding and most personal revelations-afflictions, addictions and relationships, the good and the bad, capturing life's most devastating moments along with its celebratory moments of beauty and joy.

In the poem "What Might Have Been", she writes:

The robin in your tender heart
Hungers for the red berry
That titillates your tongue.
She carols as the snow falls-
And not with the chorus of the dawn
In radiant spring.
What might have been?
Your voice silenced,
The spirit of you
I see glimpses of your fire
From the light that has vanished
From your eyes.
Your wings soar,
Only not to follow
Your heart.
Whatever the passion,
Let it burn.
It will save you.

Kyrian's exceptional handling of language to create vivid images has won her high praise. Rest assured, Remnants of Severed Chains is a uniquely moving experience that readers will enjoy.

About the Author

Kyrian Lyndon is the author of A Dark Rose Blooms, a book of thirty poems with an excerpt from the first book of her forthcoming Deadly Veils series. She is also the owner of Moonlit Dawn Publications, LLC.

Kyrian began writing short stories and fairy tales when she was just eight years old. In her adolescence, she moved on to poetry. At sixteen, while working as an editor for her high school newspaper, she wrote her first novel, and then completed two more novels at the ages of nineteen and twenty-five.

She is forthcoming about being a person with many years of recovery, as well as a trauma survivor. Throughout her journeys, she expressed her thoughts through poetry, embracing every challenge to triumph over adversity. In her conviction that learning, growing, healing, and evolving is a never-ending process, she remains as grateful for the dark days as she is for every flicker of hope and light. She considers herself a cheerleader for those trudging on against all odds in the hopes of living their dreams.

Born and raised in Woodside, Queens, New York, Kyrian was the middle of three daughters born to immigrants --her father from Campochiaro, Italy; her mother from Havana, Cuba. She has worked primarily in executive-level administrative positions with major New York publishing companies.

Kyrian has completed another book for release this fall: Deadly Veils Book One: Provenance of Bondage, the first novel of her fiction series. Additional projects and collaborations are in the works.

Kyrian loves nineteenth-century British literature, parallel universe fiction, and dark romanticism. She also enjoys music, art, history, fitness, and cooking.

Ms. Lyndon brings stories to life through her eyes and poetry~Remnants of Severed ChainsRemnants of Severed Chains is another of Kyrian Lyndon's masterpieces! The words of many of the poems speak to me with such feeling and emotion. I was mesmerized from the Preface. The poetry is simple to read, the emotions each poem creates is one that is lovable, intense, overpowering and more. I look forward to rereading Remnants of Severed Chains and sharing it with others I feel will enjoy it as well. I am anxious to read Ms. Lyndon's next book. She seems to make the words come to life and the story/poem touches my heart and soul. Excellent Writer!
