Welcome to a world where stories can be as deadly as poison, and falling in love can get you killed.

YA fantasy debut THE LAST NAMSARA by Kristen Ciccarelli is a heart-soaring, brilliant coming-of-age story about courage, loyalty and star-crossed love, set in a kingdom that trembles on the edge of war.

It also features a dragon-slaying princess, plus dragons (naturally), heart-wrenching romance, and edge-of-your-seat battles . . .

Our gorgeous hardback edition cover is a STUNNING gold-foiled beauty. This dazzling art is based on an original jacket design by the wonderful DAS ILLUSTRAT, based in Germany, and Michelle Taormina at HarperCollins USA, using elements from our gorgeous proof by Dan Smith at Bionic graphics. LOOK AT THE SHINY!

Once there was a girl who was drawn to wicked things . . .

Asha is a dragon-slayer. Reviled by the very people she’s sworn to protect, she kills to atone for the wicked deed she committed as a child – one that almost destroyed her city, and left her with a terrible scar.

But protecting her father’s kingdom is a lonely destiny: no matter how many dragons she kills, her people still think she’s wicked.

Even worse, to unite the fractured kingdom she must marry Jarek, the cruel commandant. As the wedding day approaches, Asha longs for freedom.

Just as it seems her fate is sealed, the king offers her a way out: her freedom in exchange for the head of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard.

And the only person standing in her way is a defiant slave boy . . .

THE LAST NAMSARA publishes in a gorgeous hardback edition and audio October 12th and ebook on October 5th 2017. Pre-order your copy right now!
