Realm by Gertie Poole

Gertie Poole Before the Dark Ages, creatures of magic lived in harmony with the mortal world. With the introduction of new religions, the magicals were branded as demonic and the persecution began. It was a seller’s market and unicorns, griffins, and dragons were slaughtered for tokens of their powers. Having no other recourse, the members of the magical community met to plan their escape from the genocide taking place. Ancient magic, held in secret by the mighty dragons, enabled them to create a realm of their own, safe from the mortal world, yet keeping a portal open so they could pass through undetected. In their absence, the demonic forces gained a foothold, and the mortal world plunged into its darkest times. But with the onslaught of the Inquisition, the demons too, were persecuted and forced to create their own world, known as the Dark Realm.
