In Anguis, magic is forbidden.

Dragon Servants Sanna and Isadora Spence live deep in Letum Wood, where persnickety dragons and wars on the borders are the least of their worries.

Thanks to years of simmering tension, the hidden village is destined to crack. Soon. Sanna’s deep love for the giant beasts causes her to make an irreversible mistake, while Isadora’s disinterest leads her to a fateful decision that will change the course of the entire world.

Can the sisters prevent everything they know from falling apart? Or do they allow it to break and pave the way for new growth?

Join these beloved sisterwitches in a story about sisterhood, new magic, and dealing with change.

Impossible to put down.

I met Katie at Miscon 2023, I bought and she signed "Flame" for me.

TBH it's been sitting on my bookshelf since.
The other day I was home sick and the internet went out. So I started reading Flame. I couldn't put it down, even when the internet came back. I finished it that day.

It's the first time in many years I have actually read a book. Usually I listen to audiobooks during my commutes.

I enjoyed the strong female characters and how they didn't take any guff from the males or bullies. I'm looking forward to Flight.

Thanks for bringing back the joy of reading to my life.

BTW I'm not a Young Adult and your book was a wonderful read.

The author creates great believable characters and crafts a great tale in which to get to know them. Different take on dragons and rider than normal as well as the relationship between them. I look forward to reading more!

Beware falling under Katie's spell! This is a great introduction to the world of Alkarra and Katie Cross but once you enter, you may not want to come back. Katie has such a rich and vivid storytelling style that it makes everything come to life. Magical!

Flames is a magical story about witches, dragons and Letum wood. Sanna and Isadora, two sisters with a future settle that may have to face many dangers and changes in order to bring free to their world. Sanna working with the Dragons and Isadora with witches. You won’t be able to put the book down until the end and then you will look forward to to the next part. The audiobook is a masterpiece

Utterly Breathtaking- Ready to Become a DragonMaster!

What an immersive story! The emotions conveyed felt so real, the joy, the fear, the anguish, all of it was so incredible! Fell in love with the dragons and all they offered, as well as the main character(s) and their splitting paths from each other. But they didn't whine, they knew what they had to do and they did it. How incredible!
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet the lovely, fellow dragon-lover Katie Cross at a convention this year in Denver, and what a joy she was! I can't wait to continue to read this series, and explore the other worlds she has culminated so expertly in her writing! I'll be moving on to Flight here shortly!
