Fire with FireDestiny Soria
fantasy, young adult
Two sisters. Divided they burn.
Two sisters raised to be fierce dragon slayers end up on opposing sides of an impending war when one forms an unlikely, magical bond with a dragon, in this exciting, fresh contemporary young adult fantasy.
Dani and Eden Rivera were both born to kill dragons, but the sisters couldn't be more different. For Dani, dragon slaying takes a back seat to normal high school life, while Eden prioritizes training above everything else. Yet they both agree on one thing: it's kill or be killed where dragons are concerned.
Until Dani comes face-to-face with one and forges a rare and magical bond. As she gets to know Nox, she realizes that everything she thought she knew about dragons is wrong. And, with Dani lost to the dragons, Eden turns to the mysterious and alluring sorcerers to help save her sister. Now on opposite sides of the conflict, the sisters will do whatever it takes to save the other.
But the two are playing with magic that is more dangerous than they know, and there is another, more powerful enemy waiting for them both in the shadows.
Destiny Soria's first novel Iron Cast, a YA historical fantasy about magic, mobsters, and two best friends kicking ass in 1920s Boston, debuted in 2016 to critical acclaim. Her sophomore novel Beneath the Citadel is a YA high fantasy about a city ruled by ancient prophecies and four teens who risk everything to rewrite their fate.
Destiny lives in Birmingham, AL, where she spends her time trying to come up with bios that make her sound kind of cool. She has yet to succeed.
