Fort Worth, TX, - The immense popularity of the young adult fantasy fiction genre has fit right in with D.C. Akers’s ambition to publish his first fantasy fiction book, entitled Terra Vonnel and the Skulls of Aries published in Sept 2010 through Vanquisher Publishing. The Skulls of Aries is the first in the Terra Vonnel trilogy.

Like many who enjoy the fantasy genre, Akers started reading it as an adolescent. He was fascinated with Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and Bram Stoker's Dracula. He currently enjoys reading works by Dean Koontz, Heather Brewer, J.K. Rowling, and Stephanie Meyer.

Akers enjoys creating characters and placing them on an adventure so thrilling that readers will never want to stop reading about them.

“My goal is always to bring readers to the edge of their seats with a gripping, fast-paced journey filled with the fantastic and the unexpected. People like to escape, and I want to give them some place amazing to escape to.”

Readers who enjoyed the Lord of the Rings and the Harry Potter series will love this book. It is filled with magic and overtones of hope, and the will and determination of young seventeen year old Terra Vonnel, pirate and master thief. The roguish, yet charming girl has finally found one of the legendary Skulls of Aries, the greatest mystery known to man. With time running out she must now steal the remaining Skull from her vicious vampire nemesis, Count Dragos, and travel to Mount Aries to unlock the Gate of Monticule, which holds the Orb of Time.

Akers believes that fantasy readers who enjoy strong female characters, vampires, pirates, and heroic battles set in a fantasy world will enjoy reading Terra Vonnel and the Skulls of Aries.

D.C. Akers was born in Texas and attended Crowley High School. After spending several years working in accounting, Akers began to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a writer.
