Orphaned by war, haunted by unknown origins, and chased by a warlord and his army of brutal soldiers. KIRA is a young woman with a secret. She can psychically communicate with animals.
She is also on the run from her abusive mate Toril, the hero turned warlord, who led the country’s forces to victory against the outland raiders. Only that was before his love of power consumed him.
Now, his only focus is on tracking down Kira and making her punishment an example of his power. But the quest for freedom isn’t the only struggle Kira faces. She must also come to terms with her past choices, whose echoes drive her present. And now, the future of the land and people she has come to love depends on the decisions she will be forced to make.
"Who doesn't want a pet dragon, especially one that is sized just right?. . . Sure to become a classic fantasy tale, the author brings this story to vivid life." - Cathy A. on Amazon
"I really enjoyed reading this book with a very strong female leading character, who is as complex as she is brave, and a plot that only deepens as the book goes on. One fantastic read!" - Birbitt on Amazon
"Nice balance between the intelligence, kindness, and gentle characteristics of a healer with the pragmatic, courageous characteristics of a warrior. Would really enjoy a sequel."- Barbara Roberts on Amazon
