‘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 . . .

Yet the closer the two become, the greater the risk both their worlds will shatter.

Kate Dylan, author of Mindwalker
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
Linden A. Lewis, author of The First Sister
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
Mike Brooks, author of The God-King Chronicles
Tight, tense, smouldering, and wonderfully queer
Julie E. Czerneda, author of the Night’s Edge series
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
Publishers Weekly
Sumptuous epic fantasy
Jen Williams, author of The Poison Song
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
Tara Sim, author of The City of Dusk
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
J.D. Oswald, author of The Ballad of Sir Benfro
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

A thoroughly enjoyable story which deserves to be very successful
Aliette de Bodard, award winning author of A Fire Born of Exile
A romance featuring a sexy dragon, stabbing and kissing, what's not to love?
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
Andrea Stewart, author of The Bone Shard Daughter
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
An extremely readable and delightful first book in an intriguing sounding trilogy
A good read with enough touches of past tropes to engage older readers and enough innovative aspects to interest newcomers. Who knew there was something new about dragons to write about, after all?
Hannah Kaner, Sunday Times bestselling author of Godkiller
Witty, gritty, and vicious fun. It's a tour de force in visual storytelling, and brings out the nuances of consent and autonomy in a digital world. I also loved the heart-pounding, edge of seat action sequences that felt like they were straight out of a movie (honestly, they should make one), and I read it so fast my head is still spinning
Leigh Bardugo, author of Shadow and Bone on Pantomime
A vibrant tale told with surety and grace

The Dragon Scales Trilogy
