Sentenced to death. Impossible to kill.

Bershad was supposed to die. He tried to assassinate a fellow noble, so was given a harsh sentence - a command to slay dragons so his death might serve the kingdom. But for some reason he's never lost a fight, and is now the most successful dragon-slayer in history. Yet as a doomed man, Bershad is still shunned by both his peers and his countrymen. But that could all change.

The king who sentenced Bershad has just given him an out. Kill a foreign king and walk free forever. However, Bershad couldn't care less about the fates of kingdoms, until he discovers he could save an innocent child in the process. And he might also save the life of every creature in Terra.

The first book in the stunning series, Dragons of Terra, Blood of an Exile is the spectacular, action-packed fantasy debut by Brian Naslund.

Brian is an American fantasy author based in Boulder, CO. Blood of an Exile is his debut novel, and the first in the Dragons of Terra series. He grew up in Maryland and studied English at Skidmore College in New York. Brian is now a product director for a tech company, and first started writing about dragons to escape the crushing boredom of his incredibly long bus commute. When he's not writing, he's usually griping about video games on Twitter, hiking with his dog, Lola, or whitewater kayaking in the mountains.

Reviews for Blood of an Exile (#1 Dragons of Terra)

Blood of an Exile promises to be a well-done epic fantasy, complete with heroic battles, death-defying acts, and the continuation of a misunderstood hero's story -- <i>Reviews & Robots</i> An exhilarating and action-packed debut -- <i>Novel Notions</i> Naslund's debut wraps action, a mystery, and the environment into an impressively tight knot of classic fantasy -- <i>Publishers Weekly</i> Naslund succeeds in creating a page-turning, edge-of-your-seat read that breathes new (fiery) life into dragon mythology. Top-notch adventure fantasy - a stand-up-and-applaud debut -- <i>Kirkus Reviews</i> Blood of an Exile is a thrilling, action-packed rollercoaster ride of a dark fantasy debut and I devoured the four hundred plus pages in three days . . . a darkly-tinged mixture of John Gwynne's Of Blood and Bone and Andrzej Sapkowski's The Witcher Saga -- <i>Grimdark Magazine</i> Exciting, epic and wonderfully told, full of subtle humour and laugh laugh-out-loud lines -- Angus Watson A page-turning, action-packed tale full of memorable characters, set within a world full of dragons . . . It doesn't get much cooler than this -- John Gwynne Part Game of Thrones, part super hero epic, Blood of an Exile is a cinematic fantasy whirlwind -- Sebastien de Castell I had a great time with Blood of an Exile - it's a fast, fun fantasy full of dragons and traitors, humor and bloody action. Fans of Joe Abercrombie's First Law or Michael Sullivan's Riyria Revelations will love Brian Naslund's debut -- Django Wexler
