Lost Legacy: The Crystal Skull Chronicles (The Skull Chronicles Book 1) Kindle Edition
What would you do if an ink-black skull suddenly materialised out of thin air, right in front of your nose?
Scream? So did I…
That skull was Gileada, the first of the 13 sacred crystal Skulls of Light, created in long forgotten times by races of benevolent beings from across the galaxy and brought to Earth to watch over the human race.
Since the days of Atlantis, there have been those who have coveted the Skulls’ power for their own dark purposes. And there have been those willing to sacrifice everything to keep the Skulls safe.
Now the dark forces are rising again, their influence growing daily. And the Skulls have made contact with me, wanting my help to defeat them.
Why me? As yet, I have no idea. All I do know is that I’m scared, confused, and completely out of my depth – and that I can’t say ‘No’.'
Lost Legacy is Book I of The Skull Chronicles series, a global adventure of epic proportions. Also available:
Book II, The Red Skull of Aldebaran
Book III, Daughter of the Gods
Book IV, Khalia's Tomb
Book V, Heart of Regulus

About the Author
When Dawn left school with a Grade A English Language 'O' level, little did she imagine that many years later she would use that literary creativity and become and author.
Her writing career began in 2010 with Forgotten Wings, a guide to personal and spiritual awakening that was accepted and published by O-Books, a subsidiary of John Hunt Publishing Ltd. Dawn's passion for writing had been rekindled.
Dawn has a long-held deep fascination for ancient mysteries, coupled with a strong conviction that there is much more to the long-ago history of the world than we allow ourselves to believe. She is powerfully drawn to the mystery and atmosphere of ancient sites and unexplained monuments and artefacts. So when she was introduced to the world of the crystal skulls in Summer 2011, it led rapidly to the inspiration for The Skull Chronicles series. Book I, Lost Legacy, was published in April 2012 and Book II, the Red Skull of Aldebaran, just over a year later.
Dawn lives in the beautiful county of Wiltshire, surrounded by its mysterious ancient landscape and stone monuments, which are an important source of inspiration for her writing. She has a grounded, earthy spirituality which is based as much in the appreciation and enjoyment of our physical existence as in the unseen world around and within us.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

The fantasy part of the story is straight forward. Thirteen skulls brought to Earth by aliens to be used by us to gain the knowledge they have acquired. The skulls were brought years ago and as mankind becomes aware of the power they hold, there are some who try to steal them for their own purposes. Eventually the skulls are scattered and hidden in various parts of the Earth as the story reaches modern day.
Here is where the approach is different, at least in my experience. As Henderson tells the history of the skulls, she mixes in the modern day story of Gemma Mason who begins having dreams about the skulls. Gemma eventually decides to write a book about her dreams. This switching from the fantasy story to what is happening with Gemma kept me reading.
The writing is above average, and the philosophy that Henderson imparts is not only worth reading, but worth a pause for reflection. The novel suffers from more telling than showing but moves at a good pace.
This was a hard book to rate for me. I give it three stars as a fantasy novel, but the writing style deserves four. But since this is for fantasy fans, three it is.
It is a series for the Now and present future to help heal the thinking and actions of humans to heal the Earth...
Many Blessings of Success and Abundance, + Marilee Ann Snyder-Nieciak
I love the mythology behind the crystal skulls and this is a fresh take on that legend. As a protagonist, Gemma is a strong character that was easy to identify with. More so, the plot itself was very engaging and full of adventure and intrigue. Overall, definitely recommend for any speculative or sci-fi fan!
That is a miracle for me! It was so profound for me.
I was deeply touched on so many levels because of my own personal life experience.
It was no accident I was to find this book.
I have a deeper appreciation for our ancestors, and the guardians of the skulls.
I did not understand the skulls deeper meaning until I read the book.
I have enjoyed skulls my entire life, and 'now' I know why.
It is a fantastic read! I cannot wait for the sequel!
I am so grateful Dawn took the amazing leap to write it.
She is an amazing writer.
It is so well written, it gripped me for two straight days reading, and it was so much fun!
Lots of laugh out loud moments.
And now I enjoy the permanent imprint of special knowledge that lasts the rest of my life from having read it.
I also enjoyed her other books, Starspeak and Forgotten Wings.
A year ago, I had a friend drop a rock in my hand from when she had been deep inside a cave.
It was the most obscure and strange gift, and only made sense after reading Skull Chronicles.
Very special INDEED.
I also went out to buy my own crystal skull after reading the book.
When I got home with my prize possession, I realized there was a rainbow heart shape inside the skull.
A magical experience to say the least.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on May 28, 2020
Can't wait to continue the whole series - thank you for bringing this to paper to share with the collective consciousness!
The introduction resonated deeply with me, the writing is beautiful, clear and thought provoking.
The story is compelling and takes the reader on a journey through different cultures and ages.
The general history of the crystal skulls demands an open mind, however D.K. Henderson treats the subject matter with great sensitivity and integrity. The books are plausible and leave the reader questioning the real Truth behind this wonderful legacy left for humankind - which I suspect is the point.
I cannot recommend this series highly enough, you are in for an amazing journey!
