A Dragon In The Palace Released

A Dragon In The Palace, the second book in my new Dragonbond series has just been released. It continues the adventures of boy wizard Raif and his pet dragon and is set in the same world as the Kormak saga. You can pick it up at your favourite ebook retailer right now. It is currently on sale at $2.99 or the local equivalent although the price will be rising in a week or so.

Here’s the blurb:

Not so long ago, the biggest problem in fifteen year old Raif’s life was finding lost goats. Now, apprenticed to a terrifying sorceress, he is caught in the web of intrigue surrounding the beautiful heir to his home kingdom. And if that was not trouble enough, he is foster parent to an orphaned dragon. Having survived deadly peril on the road to the capital, Raif and his friends encounter new dangers in a city on the edge of chaos.

      1. I may just have to get the digital copy and hardcopy later. I’m reading the Dragon from the desert right now and I cant put it down!

  1. Just a heads up, the new release, “A Dragon In The Palace,” is not linked/listed on the “Author’s profile page” in the Kindle bookstore. Just saying, in case someone’s interested in following up after the 1st book, which is very good. Search another way by: title, “customers who bought this item also bought,” or author name (generates 2.9k titles in kindle store.)

    Enjoyed the first, so thanks for writing the second!

    1. Thanks for the heads up Dj. I have added the book to my author profile now. Hopefully it will be attached soon.

    1. Thanks, Jonathan. You summed up my teenage years there. Of course, the only thing that seems to have changed is there’s less cleverness and more denseness these days. Glad you enjoyed the book!

  2. Dragon in the Palace was wonderful, and I left a 5 star review on Amazon–any information on a third book in the series
    –Greedy Reader

    1. Thank you, I am delighted to hear that and very grateful for the review. I am working on the third book which is tentatively titled A Dragon in the Dungeon. It should be out around the start of October.

      1. October! Look, I greatly enjoyed both Dragonbond books, but I’m going to have to resort to meaningless threats if you take that long.

        1. Thanks for the kind words,Neville. To be fair, October is extraordinarily fast for this series. The first book took me five years off and on, and the second one about a year and a half. Granted there was a lot of other work in between but still… Now that I have settled into the series and characters and cleared the decks of other work, things seem to be going faster.

  3. I’ve just read “A dragon in the Palace”. A bit light on action in comparison to the first part but good read.

    1. Thanks, Bies– and sorry for taking so long to respond. I try and stay away from my computer on the weekends and somehow your comment just slipped past on Monday.

  4. Thank you for the monthly updates–I enjoy them! It sounds like Raif might want to start wearing a mail shirt as protection against assasins’ knives and arrows!!
