Astrid assumed all dragons should be killed – until she met one that changed her mind.
In the medieval Northlands, a dangerous family seeks power.
They slaughter all who get in their way.
Children’s rhymes hint at what’s to come, but no one recognizes the danger at hand.
Astrid doesn’t know she holds the key to this power.
She’s just a blacksmith who makes swords for dragonslayers.
But Astrid has a dark secret …
A dragon once chewed her up and spit her out.
She hides the old scars covering her body through shapeshifting.
But the time for hiding is over.
A really well written and captivating book. I’m really looking forward to the next in the series. The storyline and the characters are really well rounded, Once I started reading the book it was hard to put it down. I will certainly keep a lookout for this author’s works in future. In the meantime watch the weekly reviews for all of the books in this series and my reviews in the not too distant future.
