'Tight tense, smoldering, and wonderfully queer' Mike Brooks

The last male dragon. A desperate thief. A bond that will save the world . . . or shatter it.

The first in an epic fantasy trilogy from Sunday Times bestselling author L.R. Lam.

Long ago, humans betrayed dragons, stealing their magic and banishing them to a dying world. Now their descendants worship dragons as gods. But the 'gods' remember, and they do not forgive.

So when thief Arcady casts a spell to steal a powerful artefact and accidentally traps Everen - the last male dragon - in the human world, the consequences are deadly.

Everen soon realises the key to his destiny, and to regaining his true power, lies in Arcady. All he needs to do is convince them to bond with him completely - and then kill them . . .

Reviews for Dragonfall

Dragons have never been so sexy. Lam's triumphant return to fantasy strikes the perfect balance between romance, action, high stakes heists, and betrayal, in a richly imagined world that's brimming with magic and heart. You can't help but fall for this book * Kate Dylan, author of Mindwalker * With a queernorm cast that challenges the roles of gender and sexuality, Dragonfall is a page-turner that keeps you on the edge of your seat with phenomenal worldbuilding and jaw-dropping twists. Leaves you as breathless as flying on dragonback * Linden A. Lewis, author of The First Sister * Lam's Dragonfall is a powerful all-new imagining of dragons and humans and the wild magic burning between them, set in a divided world as brilliantly original as it is convincing. With striking, beautiful prose and characters that will own your heart, this book - and those to follow in the trilogy - are must-reads * Julie E. Czerneda, author of the Night’s Edge series * Tight, tense, smouldering, and wonderfully queer * Mike Brooks, author of The God-King Chronicles * Sumptuous epic fantasy * Publishers Weekly * Dragonfall is fresh and exciting fantasy, full of treachery, romance and kaleidoscopic world-building. You will gladly lose yourself in L. R. Lam's creation * Jen Williams, author of The Poison Song * Dragonfall is a soaring good time from start to finish, and has plenty for fantasy fans to love: an intriguing world, forbidden romance, unique magic, and of course, as many dragons as your heart could possibly desire * Tara Sim, author of The City of Dusk * Dragonfall is a brilliant, beautifully paced page turner of a novel, up there with the best fantasy and one of my favourite reads of the year so far * J.D. Oswald, author of The Ballad of Sir Benfro * Set in a unique and wondrous world, Dragonfall is a soaring and fiery love story that will burn or melt your heart. Lam's prose is delicate and gorgeous yet sharp, and will leave readers pining for the next book * Wesley Chu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the War Arts Saga * A thoroughly enjoyable story which deserves to be very successful * Birmingham SF group * A romance featuring a sexy dragon, stabbing and kissing, what's not to love? * Aliette de Bodard, award winning author of A Fire Born of Exile * With progressive representation and constant shifts of narrative perspectives, Dragonfall is a unique intervention in the fantasy canon * The Glasgow Guardian * Its unique representation of a non-binary co-protagonist...ensures Dragonfall is a stand-out within the fantasy genre, pushing the boundaries of what the canon can look like * The Glasgow Guardian * Beautifully written, immersive, and fantastical, Dragonfall evokes shivers with its commanding prose. At the heart is the relationship between Everen and Arcady, two characters with opposing goals who should not, could not, ever love one another-and yet. Readers, ready yourselves for angst, for longing, for a world full of secrets and whispered promises. Readers, ready yourselves to fall * Andrea Stewart, author of The Bone Shard Daughter *
