The Harbinger by Peter Cruikshank

When dragon hunter Revin hears about a rare, red dragon in the North, she can barely wait to catch it. But people in the little village she visits have been awaiting her for a strange ritual and all of a sudden, she’s the one caught.



Fire of the Covenant

Volume One of The Dragon Called Legends

published Nov. 2013

Buy at Amazon or any other retailer

Sixteen year old, Princess Willoe, is to be sent away, in seclusion, prior to a forced marriage bond, rather than fulfilling her dreams of competing in a man’s world. Her twin, the solemn Prince Rowyn, has his own problems, forced to take up the life of a man-at-arms instead of retreating into his books and a life of contemplation. The twins decide, with the help of their cousins Aeron and Casandra, to take one last chance to experience their dreams.

A plan that has potential if not for two things: Foreign priests of the Shin-il Way, who see the twins as necessary to the priests’ domination of the world; and the Burning Lady, goddess over the Spirit world, who requires that the twins fulfill a covenant that a distant ancestor of theirs had made with the king of the dragons.

The close family bond between the twins and their cousins can help them confront any danger, but the true test of this bond comes when the price of the covenant becomes clear.
