About the author:
D. L. BURNETT grew up on a farm in Wisconsin and moved to New York City after college graduation. I returned to Wisconsin to raise my family. When I learned to read, I fell in love with imaginative stories: fables, fairy tales, mythology, science fiction, and fantasy. When I started IN THE KINGDOM OF DRAGONS, I wanted to write a book like the ones I loved to read. Writing In The Kingdom Of Dragons: Rose And Thorne came from my love of Dragons, Fairies, and women who strive to make their own destinies. Currently, I'm working on book 2: Dragon and Dwarf.

In the Kingdom of Dragons: Rose and Thorne
D L Burnett, D L Burnett
How could a poor farm girl endanger all Dragon-kind?
That's what Dragons intend to find out.
Dragons have few laws. The most important of these forbids harming any rare creature with Dragon-Fating. Those with this Power will change the course of Dragon destiny. Slaying one means disaster. So a cautious Dragon avoids them altogether. But a heedless Dragon cannot resist a small taste.
Breaking this law condemns the ancient black Dragon, Gaspotine the Dark, to death. To escape his decaying flesh, his spirit visits time's Silver River. There he sees Dragon-kind's fate, and the farm girl named Rose who can either save or destroy them.
When an orange Dragon descends from the heavens to taste Rose, it endangers her family. To save them from starvation, she follows a shrewd Fairy on a treacherous journey to the black Dragon's lair. There she discovers that her fortune lies not in treasure but in the metamorphic power of Dragon blood.
Though Rose's journey shatters her family, she gives hope to society's castoffs and transforms the lives of Fairies and Dragons. As Stonevar's warrior Goddess, she will change the world.
