No matter where you are, facing your reality with passion and purpose will always lead down the path you were intended to go.

Reece Bryant was able to pick up the pieces of her broken life after the sudden death of her father. Though emotionally draining, she found the courage to move on, which would have made her father proud. After finalizing the last of his estate, and returning to pursue her degree in medical school, she has never felt so confident.

While making her way through this world on her own, she is suddenly confronted with the truth of her existence, and the reality of her future. It is when she encounters two alluring and mysterious men, that a series of extraordinary events takes place, putting Reece’s life in grave danger. With her life in the balance, Reece must blindly trust the two mysterious strangers; and when she does, she is brought into an enchanting world that is beyond her logical comprehension.

This captivating land reveals new worlds and new dimensions to which her existence is paramount. But it is once she falls in love with the stunning Levi Oxley that everything will change, and Reece’s life will be in more danger than ever before.

Forced to return to Earth and face a Council of Worlds, Reece discovers there is more to this enchanting dimension than she could have ever imagined.

At a moment’s notice, even thru the fog of our denial, our journey can become crystal clear. And within the revelation, once our fear subsides, we can find contentment and purpose if we focus on the things that matter most. Trust—Courage—Love.

About the Author:

S.L. Morgan was born and raised in California. After 29 years of living in the Sierra Nevada Mountains there, she and her husband began their journeys of moving throughout the United States. She currently lives in Texas, where she and her husband are raising their three children.

In October of 2011, S.L. Morgan became inspired to write her new novel series, “Ancient Guardians.” With her passion and love for Jane Austen and other classic romance novels, she was motivated to write a novel series of her own. The Legacy of the Key is the first book in her novel series, taking readers not only into a new magical dimension—but giving them a feeling that they have been transported back in time—into England’s seventeenth century.

With her second novel in this series nearing its release date late this summer, S.L. Morgan is currently writing in the third novel of the Ancient Guardians series, and excited to bring her readers on more adventures and journeys, with these characters.


Book Trailer 


This was a clever book that answers the question “what if we are not alone in the universe?”  In this story, an alien species tries to take over the Earth, which is where we got Atlantis.  The reason Atlantis sank was that a clever earth scientist created a gem that destroyed the enemy and sank Atlantis.  Then he hid the stone and created a map in that would exist in the minds of his ancestors, but could not readily be accessed by his ancestors.  Now thousands of years later, his last surviving descendent is in danger from the same species that once threatened Earth.  The same race he worked with then steps in to protect her as they promised all those years ago.  Because of the nature of the threat she is whisked away to their parallel universe.  Then…

Seriously, you didn’t think I was going to tell you what happens?  Why would I give the secrets away.  Let’s just say this story is science fiction, fantasy, romance, action, mystery, suspense, and men-in-black all rolled into one.  I think it would make a great movie based on all the visual descriptions, although I’m not sure even Hollywood could match the vivid pictures painted by the author’s words.

I give this story 4.5 out of 5 clouds.
