Synopsis:

Steel and vengeance…

Ember Ignis, the heir of House Draco, knows hatred. She’s grown up in it, reveled in it, under the watchful eye of her mother, Lady Verity. Second only in power to the royal family, Ember and Verity are practically untouchable.

That is, of course, until Verity goes missing, leaving Ember scrambling to find her mother as rumors of a powerful rebel group spread. Armed only with rumors and the assistance of a lesser son from a low house, she is willing to cleave the world apart to get her mother back.

All the while, the crown prince of House Phoenix, Asher Cinis, struggles with a crushing addiction that dulls the abuse he endures at his mother’s hands. He prepares to flee, to abandon duty and honor- until Juniper Farley, a new servant at the palace, steps into his life and sees him beyond the crown.

As Ember races to find her mother before the consequences turn deadly, and Asher struggles to choose between his head and his heart, they find enemies lurking in every corner, and that the brightest smiles hide the darkest secrets.

Author Interview

In up to 9 words or emojis, without spoilers, what can readers expect from The Dragon Heir?

Steel and vengeance; 🔪🔥👑🩸

Without spoilers, what scene did you have the most fun writing and why?

There’s a scene where Ember and Viper dance, and honestly, that was one of my favorites. It was a really interesting way for me to help develop the relationship between the two of them!

Were there any interesting facts that you found while researching for this book that didn’t end up being used?

I did an obscene amount of research into the operating mechanisms of a guillotine and I didn’t use any of that information. I also did a lot of research into religions around the world, but I’m planning on using a lot of that for the next books!

If you could spend the day with Ember and Asher what would you do with each of them?

I’d for sure ask Ember to show me how to throw knives or dance–she’s an expert at both of those things. As for Asher, well…I think I’d like to visit the graveyard with him and Hazel, his dog!

This is the first in a series.  Have you planned out the entire series already or are you letting things happen as you go?  Are you able to share anything about the world (obviously without spoilers lol)?

I have an idea of the overarching plot and character arcs, although I personally consider myself a pantster rather than a plotter. I’m working on the second book right now and I am following an outline. I usually just let things happen, though! As for the world…I can tell you that religion and other countries, especially one called Verdeca, will play a much bigger role in the second book!
