Continuing their successful collaboration, Boris Vallejo--America's premier fantasy artist--and Julie Bell--designer of the popular Dragons of Destiny sculpture series--present another year of powerful, dazzling, sensuous women triumphing in otherwordly settings. A sea goddess works magic over the water. A butterfly-winged fairy soars above a landscape of flowing lava. A warrior poses with her sword and eagle attendant. Muscles ripple, hair flows unbound, eyes flash with passion and intensity. Husband-and-wife team Vallejo and Bell create a year-long dance of the heroic and fantastic with an engrossing narrative by C. J. Henderson, author of the Teddy London series.

WORLDS OF ENCHANTMENT
Dragons rise from subterranean depths. Mists swirl over the land. Forces clash. Fates are settled—with grimacing finality—at swordpoint. Sprung from the imagination, yet rendered with anatomical clarity and a masterful detail, here is a dramatic place of nightmare and beauty created through the soaring vision of husband-and-wife fantasy artists Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell. A beguiling philosopher-witch breaks free from her icy prison. A goddess and a serpent tangle under the water. A fire-breathing beast emerges from the abyss. A sensuous mermaid rests in a serene cove. Talons curl, tendons flex, and out of the eye, a gleam of shuddering intensity. Thirteen all-new paintings herald the year. Weaving the images together is the engrossing original story "The Games of Nod," by C.J Henderson
