Dragons don't take children. And they leave a trail behind. So why do the residents of Pottbarrow keep saying that a big blue dragon is taking and killing their people? Dragonslayer Private Tabitha Dunn is certain no dragon took these people and the plume of smoke rising from the hills is her first clue to the truth.

J E Nice has been writing since she knew what words were and started writing fantasy as a teenager when she got bored of heartthrob vampires. She lives with her husband in Bristol in England, where it's downright encouraged to be weird, open-minded and unapologetically yourself. Writing often happens while sat next to elderly guinea pig Didymus, who reminds her to take breaks from her laptop by regularly Jedi mind-tricking her to the veg compartment of the fridge.
