Blurb/Synopsis:
Vibrant, scale swathed wings… Abilities that can be harnessed by a chosen few… Dragons…

All this may seem like old news, but for seventeen year-old Elena Watkins the world of Paegeia is not finished revealing all its secrets. During a summer break intended for relaxation, she discovers that her harrowing adventure to retrieve the King of Lion sword wasn't the destiny foretold by the cryptic Viden, a dragon with the ability to see a person’s true fate. The words inked onto the page of the mysterious Book of Shadows remains black and Elena must return to Dragonia Academy to discover their true meaning.
Upon her return to the magnificent castle she has to face a challenge of a different kind, keeping her boyfriend Lucian McKenzie, the Prince of Tith and love of her life, away from the dangerous new student, Paul Sutton. As a Wyvern, Paul has made it his mission to claim Elena as his rider but he is proving to be more perilous than at first glance.
Everyone knew that Wyverns were bad news, and just as evil as the darkness that lurked inside Blake Leaf, the Rubicon forced to fight against his inner nature every day. But Elena can see a small light lurking in the darkness, a destiny still unfulfilled; to prove that Wyverns can be claimed.
Will Lucian’s dark secret about Wyverns and Elena’s need to prove their true nature cause their love to be torn apart? And which of Elena’s friends will be sacrificed this time if she is wrong?

Write a Wikipedia Page for Your Protagonist

Elena Watkins (16), born on the 23rd of July 1999 to Herbert Watkins and an unknown mother. Her mother left them when she was only two years old and Herbert never told Elena anything about her mother. She only has a picture.
Elena grew up being constantly on the move due to her father’s paranoia, but one night she discovers the truth. He has been running from dragons all his life.
Elena gets taken to Paegeia, a world hidden in the Bermuda Triangle, where dragons and magic exist. She discovers that she is born with the mark of the Dragonians; a special human race who will gain an extra ability around their seventeenth birthday, that will match one of the ten dragon breeds.
They have to face the dragon inside the Coliseum and try to break it in, or fight against it, until it surrenders, to prove that they are worthy of becoming that Dragon’s rider aka Dragonians. 
Elena has no idea that any of this exists and she isn’t Dragonian material at all. She is afraid of heights, her spells backfire constantly as she can’t pronounce the words properly, and the fact that one day she will have to fight against a dragon scares her to death.
But her courage, bravery and sense of humour proves at the end that she is, in fact, Dragonian material.

Back ground of her life in Paegeia.
She struggles at first, but with the help of her two best friends, Samantha Leaf and Rebecca Johnson, Elena soon gets the hang of things.
She also falls in love with the Prince of Tith, Lucian McKenzie who is the bravest Dragonian she has ever met and tries to claim/break in the Rubicon, Blake Leaf, who is one of a kind dragon breed predestined for evil.
 Adrienne Woods was born and raised in South Africa, where she still lives with her husband and two beautiful little girls. She always knew she was going to be a writer, but it only started to really happen about four years ago. In her free time―if she gets any because moms don’t really have free time―she loves to spend it with friends, whether it’s a girl’s night out, or just watching a movie. She’s a very chilled person. Her writing career started with Firebolt, book one in the Dragonian series. There will be four books in total, including a further two to three books, which will be stories that take place within the Dragonian series. Her other series, Dream Casters, will be released mid-2015. She also writes in different genres, and her woman’s fiction, The Pregnancy Diaries, will be published under a pseudonym. And then, she has a paranormal series by the name of the Aswang series, which will consist of about ten novels. And if that wasn’t enough, there is another series, Guardians of Monsters, which will be released in 2016.
