A supernatural dog tale... an adventure as big as space, as distorted as time, that will leave you asking the question,

"Am I awake, or in a dream within a dream?"

The Power of Stories

A látszólag csendes, andalúz kisváros, Arcos de la Frontera megdöbbentő titkot rejt. Olyan titkot, amelynek napvilágra kerülése alapjaiban változtathatja meg mindazt, amit eddig a világunkról tudni véltünk. 

A rejtély kulcsa Füko, a két és fél éves patterdale terrier, akit különleges feladata és szerepe más világokon átívelő kalandokba sodor: meg kell védenie a világot a rémálmok igájába hajtó, ősi, gonosz erőktől. 

Az Őrző hajnala hátborzongatóan izgalmas utazásra hív a fantázia birodalmába.

Réka's Journey to Publishing

Réka's Book Launch at Readings Bookstore Carlton - Melbourne, Australia, 7 April 2016

Dawn of The Guardian

Deep in the heart of Andalusia on the outskirts of the ancient towering walls of Arcos de la Frontera is a seemingly quiet town, which holds a chillingly malevolent secret. Once revealed it will challenge the very fabrics of what we consider reality to be. 

Born of the Dream, Fūko (short for Fukushima), a two-and-half-year-old Patterdale Terrier, holds the key to this mystery and upon him is thrust the responsibility of the Guardian, a role that plunges him into the thick of an adventure that spans the vastness of time and the dimensions of existence.

Will Fūko be able to navigate the treacherous path of becoming the fully fledged Guardian, all while protecting his adopted dog family and facing an energy so entangled in the Dream that it threatens to envelop and enslave all of humanity, the animal domain, and all of existence with it?

Told through rich allegory, Dawn of the Guardian offers readers a journey into the world of lucid dreaming through an adventurous, fun-filled, and often spine-chilling tale.

$18.95 USD

"It’s impossible not to be impressed. The writing, particularly from a 14-year-old, is beautiful. The story is fresh and had my interest from the beginning and kept it throughout... Who could not love the characters?… It’s a fable and I think, as the author matures, this will mature along with her, to become a stunning literary work!"

Praise for Dawn of The Guardian

" 'Dawn of the Guardian' is a wonderfully written story that operates on many, quite complex, levels - and it is a very impressive book to have been written by someone so youthful (and sweet!) - and shows great intelligence, wisdom, perception, and observation. It is an amazing accomplishment ."

Krystina Kellingley - John Hunt Publishing

Kingsley Dennis - Author - 'The Phoenix Generation'

"Réka's talent is truly astounding. Her knack for balancing compelling characters with edge-of-your-seat suspense shows a level of skill that is well beyond her years. I’m in awe of Réka's wisdom and skill; she’s most definitely an old soul. This extraordinary author is at the very beginning of what is certain to be a shining future, and I can’t wait to watch her sparkle."

Torre DeRoche - Author - 'Love With a Chance of Drowning'

"DAWN OF THE GUARDIAN expresses a thoughtful sensitivity within a unique creative world, and the age of the author makes this work all the more impressive.."

Lisa Cheng - Senior Editor - Hay House, Inc.

Réka Kaponay is a 16-year-old passionate writer and blogger, turning her dream of becoming a professional writer and published author into reality at the age of 14. At 12 years of age, Réka was inspired by a trip to Andalusia, Spain, to write her first full-length adventure-mystery novel… Dawn of the Guardian, published on 31st March 2016, and also published in Hungarian, titled Az Őrző Hajnala, on 1st September 2017 by Kolibri Publishing.

Réka began writing at a very early age creating short stories and entering local writing competitions. Her love for relating stories intensified when, in 2012, her family started out on a continuous world-traveling journey of learning and exploration. She has since traveled to 44 countries on six continents and now has a readership of over 15,000 people to her blog Dreamtime Traveler

Réka’s journey has been one of learning and listening to people’s stories, immersing herself in their mindset, viewpoint and understanding of the world. This is translated in her book, through the telling of the adventure-mystery tale of Fūko, the unlikely Patterdale Terrier, who has been chosen as ‘The Guardian’, all of which is told through entertaining rich allegory, intended to engage and inspire young people to get out there and realise their dreams. 

After the release of her book, Réka and her family are continuing their world journey of learning, as well as a global promotional tour of her book, while completing the sequel to Dawn of the Guardian!
