The Sun Dragon gave birth to nine lesser dragons who devoured their parent in order to gain the power that the elder dragon possessed. They fought each other to get the most desired parts of the Sun Dragon, but each dragon was only able to manage a portion, and as a consequence, each dragon only gained certain powers. As time passed, heroes of old hunted down and slayed each foul creature. As the body decayed and rotted away; when none of it remained, the only thing that was left was the lens of each dragons left eye, known as jewels. The jewels that came from each dragon’s eye possessed a different power according to the part of the Sun Dragon, and formed the basis for all magic in the world. The Haven series follows the story of the nine Jewels of power, one the Red Jewel, known as Sang gives the bearer power over Blood Magic, another, The Blue Jewel, or Lavatis, can summon the rainbow and rules the Sky. Amber Magic is only a short novel of 200 pages introducing the epic series and the world of Haven.
