If you HATE typical hero-saves-the-world fantasy but still LOVE the sarcastic bad-boy, then A Dragon’s Spell is for you! Our princes aren’t the heroes, they’re the villains. And slaves to a powerful dragon. These missions they’re sent on won’t save the world. They just might bring the world a bit closer to its end.
Life is never normal for the crown prince and his twin brother.
It hasn’t been since their mother died and a powerful dragon moved into the kingdom.
Now that dragon has Tarrek and Albree under her control. Sometimes, the twins can pretend they aren’t her slaves, but then she commands them with a powerful spell. The only thing they can do is obey, straight into battle with skilled opponents that can rival them in strength, magic, and skill. It’s fight or die, and they both know they’re screwed … But that doesn’t keep them from trying … most of the time.
Story 1 Fire and Shadow
I’m a prince under a dark and scheming spell – a shadow-walker assigned to hunt his prey.
My target: A girl who can turn herself into a blazing fireball.
But I got too close, and I’m a melted mess with the spell now taunting me. It says I’m alive and therefore, can still fight – as if a shadow can actually take out fire.
Did I mention it’s my birthday this week? What a sucky way to turn sixteen …
Story 2 Shattered Blades
Today I’m not a prince. I’m a rock star.
And my concert is going great until a dreadful dragon casts her spell.
No after party for me. I get to hunt an extremely skilled swordsmen who has the power to clone himself. Nothing like dueling a lethal foe who can overpower me in unlimited ways.
Fight or die, I always say… Not really.
Why do I get myself into these things?
Story 3 Dragon’s Blood
I’m a crowned prince with the power of invisibility, but my life isn’t glamorous.
It’s coated in sweat and sticky with blood ... I’m a slave to a dragon’s spell.
But I’m not alone. The dragon sends her ward with murderous magic to aid me in my mission: Capture an elf with magic-nullifying abilities. Good thing I’m a genius with the bow. But I didn’t expect the elf to have a deadly dragon …
Story 4 The Darkness Within
High school as crown prince is hard enough … Having a mischievous twin brother doesn’t help.
But keeping great grades to prove I’m worthy of my title is made harder by the summons of a powerful dragon.
Why she can’t wait until the weekend for another lethal mission, I can’t say. But it’s in the middle of mathematics she casts her spell, forcing my brother and I to obey.
Our target: A samurai who’s trained in the art of war since she could walk, who can make weapons out of her own bones.
What’s worse? I think I forgot to turn in my book report.
I’m so screwed.
