And now, I’d like to tell you a bit more about my book, Dragon Rings!
Dragon Rings is the first of two books (so far) that starts with an investigation of terrible acts of destruction but quickly turns into rekindling an ancient affinity between Ring-Witches and dragons. Neither can turn away from their connection—the enhanced magic of wrist Rings created by the dragons for only the most powerful witches, those able to control and use them.
Mayra is a daunting young Ring-Witch, raised in the harsh, nomadic world of reevers, the king’s formidable enforcers. The reevers fear her position and her power, and like most men, she doesn’t care much for them—they don’t bathe enough and eat like pigs. Wolfe is a Ring-Witch in hiding and a highly effective assassin. He has a job to do and doesn’t plan to be distracted by anything, let alone a diminutive, elfin Ring-Witch. And Gaulte, the mighty black dragon, is the Prime of his Aerie. He and his dragons are enthralled by a terrible device that fills them with shocking pain at the whim of their captors. Forced to comply by the threat to their females and nestlings, the dragons are ridden by evil humans who kill and ravage seemingly without cause.
Declaring an uneasy truce, Mayra and Wolfe investigate the ongoing—and very puzzling—destruction. How can something be formidable enough to incinerate entire villages and tracts of forests, slaughtering people and animals, yet leave behind massive amounts of valuable gold and jewels? What do these savage invaders want? The two start to hear and feel a large, powerful presence in their heads as they investigate—but it refuses to show itself. When they probe, it brings scorching, mind-rending pain to Mayra—and then inconsolably apologizes for its actions! When Mayra finds a huge, bloodstained talon, she finally knows what that destructive force is—a dragon. A creature so long unseen they are a myth.
Once upon a time, dragons treasured witches as allies and friends. What has changed? Why are they attacking humans? Mayra and Wolfe must learn the truth to stop a war the humans cannot possibly win. But joining the dragons would be more than just betraying their king, it could mean their deaths. For Mayra and Wolfe and their small, fierce assembly of witches have learned that there are some things worth more than life. There are some causes even mighty dragons will die for.

|The king has sent the Kioreu Clan of reevers to hunt down and kill what is responsible for the mysterious and deadly attacks on the kingdom. Ring-Witch Mayra meets—and is annoyingly attracted to—dark, mysterious Wolfe, despite believing he isn’t who or what he claims to be. She questions his presence so near the latest destruction site. What does he know about the unknown predators? Why does being near him make her feel so peculiar? And could he know anything about the eerie voice she has started hearing in her head? Wolfe, a Ring-Witch in hiding, has good reason to be near the last attacked site, but he isn’t going to share his mission. But as they must be, his plans are soon thrown to the wind. First, by the haunting voice, he hears in his head, and then by a diminutive, elfin Ring-Witch. Gaulte and the males of his Aerie survive on dreams of the blue humans releasing the magical reins holding them captive—for then they would die with one terrible bite! Meanwhile, the dragons sleep and reserve their energy. Until one day, Gaulte’s mind touches an astonishingly spirited creature—by the Great White Dragon. It is a female human brimming with magic. Could she have the strength to help him escape and save his Aerie? When the two witches finally come face-to-face with the dragon, three lives are set on a course that will forever alter the futures of witches and dragons.|
One little note I’d like to add—the Rings worn by Ring-Witches aren’t simple metal bands. They’re placed on the wrists of children by a medical procedure. You’ll have to read the book to learn how it’s done, but I’ve heard from a few readers that it made them squirm!
