Petra Drakhorn is determined to raid draken nests with the men of her clan. But her path isn't hers to choose. Her birthmark, the genetic brand of her ancestors' crimes, makes her the key to a tyrant's ambition. When his treachery threatens to destroy her clan, Petra must find a way to stop him. With her staff and gun, a false-bred mule, and three unwanted companions, she sets out to do just that. But to succeed, she'll have to evade the ancient sentient weapon he sends to hunt her, and beard the draken who killed her brother. Set in the moss-softened rubble of the apocalypse, Kiss of the Dragonfly is a hopeful tale of warring clans, gene-edited witches, weaponized corpses, and one girl's determination to choose her own path. An SF/Fantasy blend that goes well with coffee, chocolate, or mulled wine. I hope you'll enjoy it. Thick skin here; comments and suggestions welcome.
