About the Author
More About the Author
A native Seattleitte, Kira spent her childhood hiking the rainy forests of the Pacific Northwest and drying out by the fire with a good book and a mug of something hot. She graduated with honors from the University of Pennsylvania, where she met her real life Prince Charming and promptly dragged him back to sunless Seattle. She fell in love with historic, haunted cities in graduate school. Now she writes about the twisted cities of her imagination, where wraiths and shape-shifters stalk the night and love redeems even the darkest heart. When not writing, she can be found drinking inordinately large mugs of Assam tea, knitting wool socks, and raising a wee heroine and hero-in-training.

Hang on tight and get ready to lose yourself in this saga and in the post-apocalyptic world created by The Master of World Building, Kira Brady!
Grace is the type of heroine I always love reading about, one that is strong, independent, kick-butt, and has the I-don't-give-a-f**k attitude. Grace is only human but she battles Aptrgangr and wraiths daily. She wants to protect those who can't protect themselves. Grace had a rough life. Her parents died when she was young and was left on her own defending/providing for herself on the mean streets of Seattle. Around that same time, her situation got worst. Sven Norsgad, a Drekar bound Grace to him as a blood slave making Grace his personal plaything and fighter. After Sven died, Grace wasn't freed but found herself bound to the next Regent, Leif. Grace has a burning hatred for all Drekar after what Sven put her through, and Leif is no exception. Grace has fortified a wall around herself so she doesn't ever get hurt again but the more time she spends with Leif her perspective starts to change...maybe not all Drekar are bad.Read more ›
The heroine is Grace. She's tormented, tortured, bound and yet still burns bright with a fierce determination for freedom, for choice. The word fierce embodies Grace in my imagination. Tiny but fierce. She has a warriors spirit. She strives to defend and protect others from the losses she's suffered. I adored Grace. I hurt for the betrayals and indignities she'd been through... I was rooting for her to let down some of the walls she'd built around herself and give love a chance.
And the hero... Leif. *swoon* He's a scholar and a dragon. He is the leader of the Drekar since his brother Norgard went off the deep end and died bringing chaos and hell into world. There is a lot on his plate to say the least. He didn't ask for responsibility. He's a genius and would prefer to tinker and invent tools to help rebuild civilization. But once he meets Grace his attitude towards ruling adjusts and I liked seeing his strength, protectiveness and intelligence channeled towards helping Grace and ultimately all of Seattle.
There are so many obstacles between them. She's human. He's not. She is slave bound to him because of his brother.Read more ›
