In times of peace, a new year brings new possibilities, a renewed sense of hope, and new purpose. It represents a time to celebrate all of life’s possibilities and opportunities.
Unfortunately, for Guardian’s population, the new year means new struggles, new heartache, and new foes.
The group will hold out as long as it can, but what will it mean when the enemies from within, and the enemies from the outside converge?
Ayanna Grace has no other choice than to look toward the changing times with optimism if she wants to survive. She has to hope for the best, but being smart, she also prepares for the worst.
In the times she faces, the rules are different, and the stakes are higher. In the age of dragons, the new year doesn’t always promise to be a happy one.
The dictionary defines fear as: the anticipation of misfortune or pain.
Fear is one of the most intense emotions and also one of the most prevalent. Most people experience fear from time to time. It can come in crippling waves of anxiety, preventing a person from acting. Or it can be more subtle, starting out as a small seedling of doubt, and then growing into indecision, and then crystallizing into a petrified state.
However, sometimes fear is a luxury that not everyone can afford to feel. When dragons rule the surface, and people count on you for survival, you must face your fear, control it, and beat it into submission. At least, this is what life demands of Ayanna Grace on an almost continuous basis. Ayanna has learned that in the age of dragons, you have to choose between fear and courage if you want to survive. Fortunately for Terra, she knows which side of the line she stands on.
What makes a good leader? There are several characteristics of a person that makes her someone that others are willing to follow: bravery, intelligence, organization, and a positive attitude. One of the other qualities that is essential to leadership is integrity.
Hypocrisy is the fastest way to lose the respect of those around you. This is especially true in a world like Terra, where danger comes from all directions, and the population can only rely on each other. In this post-apocalyptic world, leadership means life or death to anyone who is willing to follow.
Consequently, the people must be careful about who they choose to lead and what they are willing to accept from their leadership, because when it comes to life in the age of dragons, one wrong move could be your last.
