The Defenders’ Apprentice is available in paperback now on Amazon! The ebook will be released a week from tomorrow. I hope you’ll check out one or more of these books in the meantime, though you may have read them already. Some of these share a handful of themes with The Defenders’ Apprentice and the rest of the Dragonsfall trilogy. One thing that’s come up a couple of times is the mentor relationship. In general, though, they’re just books that I liked.
The Defenders’ order is dying, but that’s no surprise. They’ve been in hiding for over a hundred years, and apprentices are getting harder to find – hardly anyone can see the dragons anymore.
Eppie is a successful pickpocket. She keeps her cache – and her ability to see the dragons – well hidden. One day she picks the wrong pocket, and the next thing she knows she’s been brought in to a mysterious secret order of swordsmen and swordswomen. She’s their last apprentice, their last hope. With far too little training, she sets out to help save the dragon Tiada, but if her mentor and the others fall in the battle, who will defend the dragons next time?
