He’s a dragon intent on saving his people from destruction by the Fearghall and she is a wolf who blames the dragon for the deaths of her brother and mother. They’re true mates, but will that be enough to overcome ancient prophecies, debilitating visions and a dragon’s fire?
When Erik, the only living dragon shifter, and prince of the Ean, killed her brother, Ciara was left alone to face her prophetic dreams. Now, in order to find the wolves’ sacred stone and save all the Chrechte from destruction, she needs her enemy’s help.
Erik was only protecting the children of his people, but that day in the forest left a mark on him as well. Controlling his dragon’s fire is the most difficult thing he’s ever done—until he and Ciara are forced to face not only their shared tumultuous past, but a hallowed bond stronger than they realize. As avowed enemies and predestined mates, their quest ushers them into a world of great danger, and a passion hotter than the dragon’s fire.

Five Fun Facts about Dragons
While researching dragons for the writing of “Dragon’s Moon,” I ran across all sorts of fun and interesting facts about these mythical creatures. The first thing I realized was that the mythology of the dragon is as varied as the cultures that spawned it. And since we find Dragonology in European, Asian and Native American history, that’s a pretty broad spectrum.
Which leads us to…
Fun Fact #1: the concept of the dragon is one of the most prevalent common myths shared by multiple cultures across the globe.
Fun Fact #2: in Western Dragonology the dragon is often associated with women and female deities, defying the mistaken belief that women have always been perceived as the weaker sex historically.
Fun Fact #3: Eastern dragons do not have the same fearsome reputation for mayhem and destruction as Western dragons and are most commonly considered harbingers of strength and good luck.
Fun Fact #4: there are more sea living dragons in mythology than those who can fly and cast fire.
Fun Fact #5: the dragon in “Dragon’s Moon” is both the Prince of the Éan and the protector of his people, the only living drakon and considered myth among the Chrechte.
What about you? What fascinates you about dragons? What fact or tidbit is your favorite aspect to the current mythical dragon’s character?
