Sixteen years ago, the strongest of the dragons who once flew free over the kingdom of Auland escaped extinction by releasing their souls to reside in unaware humans. With a debilitating sickness now spreading through their hosts, time is running out for them once more. Soon they will lose their only chance to return to a changed world.
For a gold smuggler orphaned in the war and the son of a dragonslayer, life will never be the same again…
My name is Laura and I’m a British YA Fantasy author, currently based in New Zealand. My debut novel Kindling Ashes won Lulu’s Wrimo Accelerator competition in 2014, and I published the sequel and finale Fanning Flames in 2016.
I have since concentrated on writing more diverse speculative fiction with non-Western settings and LGBTQ characters. My current project, The Curse of the Rohkai, is based in an empire inspired by medieval Morocco and features a queer romance.
