Enter a world ruled by dragons . . .

'Spectacular and sexy fantasy' – Freya Marske, author of A Marvellous Light

The Sky on Fire is a daring new fantasy heist adventure from Jenn Lyons that will thrill fans of Temeraire, Fourth Wing and Dragonriders of Pern.

Anahrod lives only for survival, forging her own way through the harsh jungles of the Deep with her titan drake by her side. Even when an adventuring party saves her from capture by a local warlord, she is eager to return to her solitary life.

But this is no ordinary rescue. It’s Anahrod’s past catching up with her. These cunning misfits – and their frustratingly appealing dragonrider ringleader – intend to spirit her away to the dragon-ruled sky cities, where they need her help to steal from a dragon’s hoard.

There’s just one problem: the hoard in question belongs to the current regent, Neveranimas – and she wants Anahrod dead.

From the acclaimed author of the Chorus of Dragons series, this soaring stand-alone fantasy combines conniving dragons, lightning banter, high-stakes intrigue and a little bit of heat.
