Dragon Racer 1 is the first book of a new “All Ages,” Gaslamp, fairy tale saga, by multiple award winning, #1 Amazon bestselling author, M. R. Mathias.
Hovering in the Otherworld above a dystopian land called the Dregs is a place where humans, dwarves, and all the creatures of fae gather once a year to wager fortunes and celebrate the spirit of competition. The place is called Sky Island, for the dragons race around it. Those who risk life, limb, and wing to compete before the gods are granted a kingdom of their own if they win. It is no small thing.
But to race at Sky Island is by invitation only. A dragon racer must first win a Chalice in the realm of men before the gods will even take notice.
Dragon Racer 1
After losing her mother, Sharrah Che has moved in with her widowed Aunt. She and Aunt Sadie work at Guotin’s bakery across the lane and enjoy a decent life living under the king’s protection just off of prosperous Gaslamp Avenue. Not all single women are as lucky in this steam and spring powered kingdom full of poor, prosperous, and sometimes unsavory men. Just when Sharrah is starting to feel normal again, and because she is now of an appropriate age, her aunt decides to take her to the dragon races. From there Sharrah’s life is twisted into chaos after she is turned into little more than a prize for Luumin, a terrifying wizard with eyes the color of fall leaves.
At Dragon’s Keep, while punishing Luumin, angry King Travvingto mistakes Sharrah for a racer in training and orders her to ride the dragon named Azure in an upcoming race. All she has to do is hold on and let dark Anshi win.
But things are never so simple.
