The Last of the Silver Wings
Book 1 - The Chronicles of Nadine
Below Nadine’s medieval village, the fragile peace that dragons and mankind had died to forge is about to shatter.
A power-hungry King bent on revenge discovers the legend of a darkened dragon heart. The story explodes into a plot to eliminate the church hierarchy that destroyed his mother. He must have a dragon hatchling.
Nadine wakes to the screams of her village being destroyed by dragon fire, as the last dragon mother exacts her vengeance at this cruel betrayal of mankind. And she takes hostages. The message is clear, “Return the hatchling or watch the villagers die in the ancient tunnels.”
Ripped away from an age of innocence, this epic fantasy thrusts Nadine into a world of kings, queens, and dragons. The stakes for victory are high. The Chronicles of Nadine is an action-packed adventure series set in a time where the struggle for world domination is real. It weaves politics and religion into the lives of a series of well fleshed out characters, who call to each of us to reckon with our own inner demons.
This series has the complexity of Game of Thrones with the moral compass of Francine Rivers.The Last of the Silver Wings, the first in the series, is an action-packed Medieval Fantasy novel that speaks to our most basic fears and aspirations.

Meet the Author
Kim Vermaak always had a pen in her hand. Whether doodling, crafting poems or writing letters.
Born into an abusive family, Kim's first heroes were her adoptive parents. Through them, she learned the gift of new beginnings.
She also learned a love of reading and how she could be transported to a place where ordinary people could find the courage to rise above insurmountable odds. Through books, she found her courage.
But it was not until South Africa faced its first series of power cuts that she found her talent for storytelling. In the dark, with a frightened daughter, she began to create heroes that could tap into their inner strength and win.
Through her love of reading, history and young people, Kim crafts stories that embrace the true purpose of storytelling. Stories are designed to impart wisdom.
But in today's fast-paced society, we often reduce stories to entertainment value. This leaves little room for us to grow and forces us to relive the painful lessons of the past. But this author's passion is to see communities create a legacy that will empower future generations.
This past week I interviewed two authors for my YouTube channel.
One of them once wrote 30 000 words in one weekend and he has 11 published books. It was a jaw-dropping moment for me. My immediate reaction was that I felt such an underachiever.
I just finished the last chapter of my third book on Friday and on my most productive day ever, I can manage 5000 words.
But then I realised that while we should have mentors and people who challenge us to live to a higher standard, everyone has to run in their own lane.
What mental health issues affected my villain?
To build believable worlds, I have to immerse myself in my characters’ minds and see what they see and feel what they feel.We are a few weeks away from the launch of The Fire Within the Storm. I offered my launch team a free psychological profile on my villain, King Radolf. So I wanted my profile to feel like the real thing.
I wanted to produce something that will be worthy of their time and better help them understand this character.I have hinted at some of King Radolf’s traumas in book 1.
