Magic is outlawed in the Krael Empire and punishable by death. Born with the gift of earth magic, the free trader Halani keeps her dangerous secret closely guarded. When her uncle buys a mysterious artifact, a piece of bone belonging to a long-dead draga, Halani knows it’s far more than what it seems.
Dragas haven’t been seen for more than a century, and most believe them extinct. They’re wrong. Dragas still walk among the denizens of the Empire, disguised as humans. Malachus is a draga living on borrowed time. The magic that has protected him will soon turn on him–unless he finds a key part of his heritage. He has tracked it to a group of free traders, among them a grave-robbing earth witch who fascinates him as much as she frustrates him with her many secrets.
Unbeknownst to both, the Empire’s twisted empress searches for a draga of her own, to capture and kill as a trophy. As Malachus the hunter becomes the hunted, Halani must risk herself and all she loves to save him from the Empire’s machinations and his own lethal birthright.
I really loved the first book in this series, so I’m super looking forward to the sequel. Also, that is one of the most gorgeous covers ever, I’m in love. 😀 Dragon Unleashed is expected December 10th, 2019 from Ace.

This might be my fave cover this year. Wow. First time hearing of this one too.
The cover is definitely beautiful! I hope this second is as good as the first. Good luck! 😉
Thanks! Yes, I LOVE that cover, it’s a great one. 🙂
I cannot WAIT to get my hands on this!!! And the cover is gorgeous, I love looking at it 😀
Same! I may have to actually buy a physical copy of it because I love that cover so much.
Another series where everyone loved the first and can’t wait to continue reading – and I’m already behind. Why!
There’s just too many books! We’re blessed with an overabundance of great fiction. 🙂
Yep. Not something that I’m inclined to moan about. The more great fiction the better even if I can’t possibly read it all. #goodproblemstohave
