Cayda has spent her life training to slay a Fire Scale. Now the time has come to leave her dragon-ravaged village behind, march into the Summer Alps, and reap the rewards of a Champion. But the road between poverty and prosperity is rife with beasts, betrayals, and baser temptations. Sensible Cayda soon discovers she’s not the only Champion with her eye on the prize, or the only one wearing a disguise.

A Wild and Unremarkable Thing pits girl against dragon in a stunning blend of Greek mythology and medieval lore. Don’t miss the thrilling novella that readers are calling poetic, enchanting, and a must-read for fans of fantasy!


“Swordplay?”  Penn is counting on his fingers.  His elbows are notched on the ale-splattered table between them, and his sleeves are shoved up.  
The tavern is warm and sweating with too many bodies pressed inside of it.  Penn has had a tankard already, so his cheeks are flush and his eyes are glittering, as gray and sharp as new steel.  
Cody thinks that he glows, but of course, he does not.  He’s only a man, after all.
But she doesn’t really think so.
He’s a spectacle, bright-eyed and sly-smiled, and too snug in his black trousers and shirt, too broad-shouldered.  No man should be built so well.  And what is that sparkle in his gaze?  Not just the lamplight or the covered torches adhered to the tavern walls.  It makes her cheeks burn scarlet.  It makes her throat dry up and her blood run black and her pulse skip deliciously – leaping with abandon from one beat to the next.
“Mm,” Cody says, and takes a sip of ale, but it’s lukewarm – it does nothing to douse her veins.  “My father got me in the shoulder once,” she says, “teaching me to block.”
Penn hikes up a brow.  Cody tugs her collar down over her shoulder to show him a tidy, white scar.  
“Not good at blocking, then?” Penn says.
“I am good at it,” Cody says, “now.”
“Anything you’re not good at?” says Penn.
“Horseback riding.”  He laughs.  “And I’m not very good-looking, I suppose.”  Now she’s grinning madly.  Penn flatters her wit, and she never knew she was witty.  She has rarely laughed, living in Ithil.  Now she loves to laugh.
