“Dragons do not exist.” Ella Hixson shrieks as the mythical beasts dive from the sky, shredding her car with their impressively long talons and sending her careening across the road in an attempt to avoid the being flambéed. Escaping her car, she grasps the door in order to prevent herself from tumbling down the slippery embankment. Pouring rain soaks Ella’s interview suit and her dress shoes as she searches the sky for the attacking beasts to find nothing but clouds heavy with their payload of rain.Hallucinations, relationship destroying fights with her mother, and – thanks to a bodaciously bosomed, bottle-blond – jobless, Ella needs the universe to cut her a break.

Be careful what you wish for.

Circumstances conspire and Ella’s mundane existence evaporates when she discovers she is Drakkon, the hidden heir to an ancient dynasty, and she has an enemy who would see all the Drakkon race enslaved or dead.

No more ordinary days for Ella as learns what it is to be Drakkon, tries to save a world she knows nothing about, and still be home in time to feed her dog.

( The paperback edition will be announced within a month of the e-publication.)
