E. E. Knight was born in Wisconsin, grew up in Minnesota, and now calls Chicago home, where he abides in domestic felicity with his family and assorted pets. He is the author of the Age of Fire series and the Vampire Earth series.
Knight creates a marvelous character study of a young woman within the walls of a mostly male-dominated world...Highly recommended as a crossover for adults and YA readers drawn to fantasy novels with dragons and the women who ride them.--Library Journal (starred review) Praise for the Dragoneer Academy series Novice Dragoneer is deep and thoughtful, with intricate worldbuilding and resonant characters both human and draconic. Anyone who fell in love with Tamora Pierce's Alanna will find a home here too. --Django Wexler, author of The Infernal Battalion Engaging, inventive, and compulsively readable, Novice Dragoneer serves up adventure after adventure of our determined, clever heroine, along with plenty of surprises. Highly recommended.--Howard Jones, author of For the Killing of Kings One of the most consistently interesting writers.--Charlaine Harris An excellent fantasy coming of age story...Ileth's journey leads her to places of wonder, but also sorrow and loss, and how she copes with the challenges is where the story telling of E. E. Knight shines.--Booklist If you enjoy fantasy, dragons, training, and a wonderful young heroine, I suggest you read this book.--The Reading Cafe Delightfully entertaining...Fans of magic school stories will especially take great pleasure in it.--The Bibliosanctum
