IT IS MY HONOR TO WELCOME PATRICIA GUTHRIE HERE TODAY ON HER LEGACY OF DANGER BLOG TOUR.
OVER TO YOU PATRICIA!
A tidbit of useful information about The League of the Silver Cross found in LEGACY OF DANGER. Hope you enjoy this, and if so moved, will you please leave a comment on this post, and if you want to, if this book is a genre you like, please leave a short review on Amazon.com.
LEAGUE OF THE SILVER CROSS
So, what is the symbol of the silver cross in Legacy of Danger?
This story dates back from the 14th century when Vlad Tepes ruled Walachia and most of Transylvania. (remember Bram Stoker’s Dracula?) At least, he alternated that rule with the Turks. The Turks had the cross and during the wars in the 1300’s the Boyard Princes stole it back. The silver cross was encrusted with rubies, diamonds, emeralds and sapphires-jewels of the most precious kind. The rubies came from Burma, where the most highly prized gems came from. The Boyards called themselves “The League of the Silver Cross.” In the beginning, Prince Vlad was popular among the people, but he became so cruel and later insane they had to do something. It is rumored he was killed by his own men in one of the Romanian-Turk wars in the 1400’s. The silver cross remained in the Dkany Castle until an earthquake in the 1500’s destroyed it– a rumor.
You’ll find out about that and more while reading LEGACY OF DANGER.
Is this true? Much of it is. The League of the Silver Cross is Elena and her family’s history. That is fiction based on truth. Vlad Tepes’ history is pretty much true.

LEGACY OF DANGER
Inheriting a castle, Elena Dkany travels to Romania, a land dipped in Myths, Folklore, and as legend has it, the Walking Dead.
From the onset of her arrival, hearing a local proverb: “Do not speak badly of the Devil, because you cannot know to whom you will belong,” she soon understands the importance of adhering to this warning in this mysterious land.
