Cover Reveal: HEART OF FIRE (Dragon-mage, #1)


It is the 1st of February and the cover reveal of my first novel in a new dragon series …

Heart of Fire

Dragon-mage, #1

Full wrap around print cover for Heart of Fire, Dragon-mage Book One, by Raina Nightingale

Book Description:


Camilla has always been told that humans are inferior. They cannot use magic. If they bond to dragons, they will doom the creatures to extinction. She has never believed a word of it. She has always known that she can use magic, and she suspects it is the elves who harm the dragons by keeping them to themselves. Now, she is presented with the opportunity of a lifetime: a dragon’s clutch is hatching and while she will earn the wrath of her captors if she is caught, she has the chance to see a dragon hatch and perhaps even to Recognize.

Kario’s people have feared dragons since time immemorial. When an unrealistically huge black dragon flies in while she is hunting, she is certain she will die. Instead, her life is changed when Nelexi, Obsidian Guardian of Areaer, chooses her as her final rider. Kario takes the name Flameheart, but she is soon homesick and afraid that she is insufficient to be the partner of a god.

Heart of Fire also contains 8 hand-drawn illustrations by the author, as well as chapter headers and scenebreaks also hand-drawn and designed by the author.

Release Date: 4-16-2023

Quotes from Heart of Fire:

“I have no destiny other than the one I choose for myself. You can’t have been created in order to help me.”

– Camilla, Dragon-mage, Rider of Radiance

“It not unjust, Camilla, but it is not justice. All that is not justice will degenerate into injustice.”

– Alian, dragonmage/were-dragon

“If I had any weapon with which to fight, I would ask you to make me a Dragon-slayer. As it is, I ask only for a safe passage Home and comfort for those whose wanderings are not yet over.”

-Kario Flameheart, Rider of the Obsidian Guardian

“You wouldn’t, Camilla. You couldn’t. You know if you killed me, you’d kill Shimmer, too.”

-Sylvara, Rider of Sleet

About the Author:

I have been writing fantasy since I could write stories with the words I could read (the same time that I started devouring books, too). I now write “slice of life” and epic dawndark fantasy, for fiction lovers interested in rich world-building, characters who feel like real people, and spiritual experiences. I think giant balls floating in space can have the same magic that fairytales teach us to look for in oak trees and stars. I have a lot of universes and while not all of them have giant balls floating in space, most of them have dragons of one sort or another!
