Using the Arts is forbidden. And I just got caught.
Now I have three options: death, the Marriage Market...or the Dragon Duels.
I'm going to take my chances against the dragons. If I survive, I'll become be pardoned for my crimes and become a Dragon Defender. If I lose, death will seem like the easy option.
Hundreds of people go into the Duels, but only a tenth come out. And this year, I'm going to be one of them.
Stoking the Embers is book one in the Dragon Duels series, an urban fantasy adventure with a dystopian flare and a slow burn romance.
