Rising From the Ashes
(The Dragonmage Saga Book 1)
Ancient Ireland – an era of clan wars, petty kings and invasions by raiders from the north.
As Christianity tightens its hold, magic and the old ways fight to keep their place in the hearts of the people.
Born into this world is Ash, orphaned and maimed, left to die. She is rescued by a clan of badgers and raised to be one of them. As she grows, so does her magic, until at last she comes to the attention of other humans. Some of them want to protect her; some want to use her.
When she bonds with an orphaned dragon cub, the two of them become pawns in a bid for power. Forced to flee, dragon and dragonmage embark on a quest to seek the answers as to why they were bonded and what their future holds.

“If you are a dragon lore/ fantasy fan.. you will love it. If you aren’t – give it a try, you wont find a better example of sympathetic writing, elegant prose, a wonderful heroine, and the storytelling of a genuine bard.”

“If I knew a YA reader looking for a story with a strong heroine, compelling story line, and (best of all!) dragons, I would recommend Rising from the Ashes. I know I’m looking forward to reading more of this promising series.”

“I love the character interactions in this book, Ash is so innocent, she has no guile but her heart is huge. This is one of the books that I was so glad that I had the rest of the series to read immediately after finishing one book although this close to Christmas I’ll probably have a hard time finding the time (heavy sigh). This is a great fantasy tale suitable for all ages.”
