A thrilling quest, forbidden love and an Empire on the brink. Moth and Spark is The Princess Bride meets Game of Thrones ... with a dash of Jane Austen.
A Tale of Magic, Adventure and True Love.
In the country of Caithen, Prince Corin is tasked with freeing the dragons from their bondage to the Emperor. To help him in his quest, the terrifying beasts have allowed Corin a little of their power.
But the history of the dragons' slavery is shrouded in mystery and no one can assist in his quest to free them ... until the arrival of Tam at court - a sensible doctor's daughter, who discovers a remarkable talent. She is a seer, gifted with visions.
Sparks fly when Corin and Tam meet ... but it's not all happily ever after. Not only is the prince forbidden to marry a commoner, but war is coming to Caithen. Torn between love and duty, Corin and Tam must work together to master their newfound powers and unleash the dragons at last.
Fun and beautifully crafted. The novel is something like a Russian nesting doll: it's a Jane Austen novel inside a Princess Bride type fantasy romp inside a much darker Tolkein-esque story of politics, war, magic, and dragons. An impressive debut - Charlie Lovett, New York Times bestselling author of The Bookmans Tale
