The summer before Dylan Kennedy’s senior year in high school is turning out to be anything but boring. Ridiculously hot girlfriend? Check. Killing evil Dark Souls who suddenly have aspirations of taking over the magical realm of Teag because its protective spell is gone? Check. Not even Teag’s King, Dylan’s father, Baun, can stop them. People are dying, and a dark magic that his girlfriend, Kera, received from Baun is growing stronger. Dylan wants to believe Kera is suppressing the darkness that’s in her, but every day he sees that control slip just a little more.

Baun sends Dylan to find a powerful magic that stop the Dark Souls, a magic so strong that Baun hid it so no one else could use it. When Dylan doesn’t expect to find along with it, are consequences that could end the lives of those closest to him.

The Rising King: Character spotlight

Character: Baun
Age: Ageless
Birthplace: The magical realm of Teag
Ability: As the reigning king of Teag and Dylan’s father, he has more magic than everyone, and the most power to lose if Teag falls to its enemies. 

What makes Baun unique?
He’s the Lost King of Teag who’s come back to reign. For good.


 Magic. Nothing in life gives him more satisfaction than using magic. It’s addictive.
Teag. Teag has more beauty and wonder to it than any place else. He’d do anything to keep it safe. Anything.


Humans. He loved a human once. Then she betrayed him. He tries not to think of her, but if anyone knew he thought about her every day, they’d think he was mad. Truth be told, he thinks his just might be.

Pux. Those hateful little faeries imprisoned and tortured him for more than ten long years. Now that he was free, they’d pay for what they did to him.

Author Bio:

Shea Berkley has a fondness for characters, whether in real life or those she makes up in her head while tending to the multitude of mundane tasks she's forced to do in order to survive. Writing gives her purpose (okay it keeps her out of trouble...mostly), and she can't imagine herself doing anything else. (well maybe a zombie for the Walking Dead, but who doesn't want to do that?). Since she leans toward the pubescent, she fits right in with the Young Adult book crowd. 

To find out more about her, go to or Facebook or Twitter.
