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.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This YA Epic Sword & Sorcery Fantasy series is written for adults but appropriate for ages 14 and up.


  • Strength in Character

    By Frognot Reed
    Astrid is admirably the strongest female role I have read yet. Resa has developed Astrid from a terrified child to a courageous young woman with a strong heart. This is the kind of character I would like my daughter to read about as her own role model.

    Great and a fun read! Was action packed and the characters were very easy to visualize! Overall is a great book and can't wait until I can read the rest in the series.
  • Fun twisted adventure

    By KiddieLitMom
    An exciting read with many twists and turns. The story shares its tale in chronological order for the most part, but does jump ahead or jump back at times. At times, the story seems to jump and leave out details, but yet it works overall. It was an interesting read in following the heroine throughout the story as she grows and changes while making mistakes along the way. The ending does try to sum up the epiphany to help the reader get the final message.
