Dragon.jpg“He is Dragon… He breathes.”

After the nightmare in Dubai, Allie and Revik are on the run, dragging the remains of their army to stay ahead of Shadow. Revik knows they can’t run forever. He comes up with a plan––a crazy plan, one that might just destroy everything he and Allie hold dear.

A plan that might mean sacrificing himself to keep his family alive.

Meanwhile, Allie returns to America to hunt Shadow’s network, working with the remnants of the human government to forge a cross-race alliance. Knowing Menlim might kill her husband, that her own leadership team has been infiltrated, as has the presidency of the United States, Allie fights to stop the remaining world powers from being manipulated into nuclear war.

Then Dragon appears, another broken intermediary with unbelievable power. He might just be the most dangerous seer Allie’s ever encountered––including her husband, who Dragon seems determined to hunt for reasons of his own.

NOTE: An alternate version of this book was previously published as part of the “ALLIE’S WAR” series (this version has been heavily revised/edited prior to re-release).

Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.

*Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature readers only. Not intended for young readers.*

DRAGON is book 9 in the Bridge & Sword series. It is also related to the Quentin Black World, and takes place in the wider history/world of the seers.

Next and FINAL chapter in the Bridge & Sword world: SUN (Bridge & Sword Series #10). Or if you’d like to read more about seers, check out BLACK IN WHITE (Quentin Black Mystery #1), which occurs in a version of Earth much closer to our own.

THE BRIDGE & SWORD WORLD is a dark, gritty science fiction and apocalyptic series with romantic (and sexy) elements, starring Alyson Taylor and her partner, dark and dangerous infiltrator, Dehgoies Revik. For fans of gritty, character-driven science fiction and fantasy worlds, filled with twists and turns and backstabbing betrayals, with heroes and villains who can be equally relatable (and sometimes the same people). The Bridge & Sword books span continents and historical periods as Allie and Revik try to save the human and seer races from destroying one another, and keep their friends and loved ones alive in the process.

review

Some stories, some characters just … resonate.  They burrow deep into your brain and just stay there.  And you become more attached to them, and more invested in the outcome of their tale.

And this?  This traumatic, violent, end of days epic love story may be one of the more disturbing ones to get lodged in my head.  But I really wouldn’t have it any other way.

I can’t pretend that I followed all the twists and turns of this addition to the saga until the very end.  Always on edge.  Never in the loop.  Precisely, I suspect, how the author planned it.

What am I going to do when this series finishes?  I’ll put that hurt off until another day.  For now? This will more than keep me hooked.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

About the author

I’m a USA Today bestselling author of sexy, apocalyptic and cyberpunk-y paranormal mystery, alternate history, urban fantasy & supernatural suspense, often with a metaphysical bent.

While it might seem like I have a (perhaps overly?) friendly relationship with my dark side, if you read my stuff, you’ll discover pretty quick that, at base and in my heart, I’m a big, sappy, pie in the sky idealist, and that I always want the light to win, love to win, the good guys to win, compassion to win, the bad guys to be redeemed or at least to find love…even if they have to crawl through mud and blood and crazy sex and betrayal and broken fingernails to get there.

Of course, not all of them make it…but I always hope that they will.

Other stuff: I have a background in journalism and political history, and a Master’s degree in the latter. I love to travel and to interact with different cultures and histories and I’ve traveled a fair bit (although never enough – there are always new places to see!).  I’ve also lived a lot of different places, including all over the United States where I was born, as well as stints in Europe, Australia and now Asia, including a few years in India and now a few in Thailand.

Currently, I live and work full-time as a writer in Bangkok, Thailand, where I have a beautiful view of a Buddhist wat right out the window while I write.
