"Two thousand and eleven years after the birth of the Failed One, the Witching Pen will be made manifest on Earth by the Great Shanka Witch of the Old Scrolls. By her hand, the Earth will rumble and shatter, and all dimensions will bleed into one."


The true purpose of the Witching Pen has been revealed, and it must be destroyed before an apocalyptic prophecy comes true. There's just one problem - the Pen is indestructible.

As everyone searches for much needed answers, Elena lays down plans for a radical mission to save her mother from the Shanka's shadow world.

Meanwhile, Mary has finally discovered who she really is, and what that means for the human race.

What Mary doesn't know, is that Gwain has been searching for her for over ten thousand years, and had lost all hope of finding her. Now that he has her, he's faced with an impossible choice: does he save the woman who altered his very existence, or does he sacrifice her to save mankind?


Note: contains explicit scenes intended for a mature audience.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen—the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria—took up residence on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.

What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.

With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire & Blood is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros.
(Author's Note: Saving Eve is a companion novel to The Witching Pen series, and should be read after The Last Dragon.)

Amid long, wild grass, a snake slithers, hidden.
Hidden until a man opens his eyes...

Awaking with amnesia in St Mary's Hospital, after a near-fatal freak accident, he is known only as Luc. With the help of Evie Gold, the kind, young woman who found him, he starts a new life - a second chance, a clean slate.

A bond burgeons between them.

But disturbing dreams of dark deeds become waking recountings. A blackness is uncoiling - seductive, familiar and dangerously provocative.

An ancient craving stirs; an old addiction rises.

Nothing is as it seems, and as reality crumbles, Luc finds himself asking, not just who he is, but...

Who is Evie?

From the author of the international bestselling Witching Pen series, Dianna Hardy takes a seed from The Last Dragon, and brings you an existential story of two beings in search of completion.

Length: Short novel at just over 40,000 words.
Written in British English.


REVIEWS

★★★★★ "Dianna Hardy's fresh and unique craft appears effortless. Her words never fail to move the reader, engaging them fully and opening up a vivid world. Truly, her striking literary style is as beautiful as it is original." - Bex 'n' Books

★★★★★ "...perfect. There is no other word to use for what I felt for this book. I loved Lucifer, and I knew I would enjoy this book even though Dianna Hardy had stated that it changed from the way she had originally planned it, but after reading the book I, personally, couldn't have asked for a better story. It was meant to be this way. This was how the story was supposed to go, and it was perfect." - author, Elizabeth Morgan.
