It’s finally here! Embers, the final book of the Scales ‘N’ Spells series is finally out!
It’s time for you to properly meet Nikki. They are definitely a handful, but we love them to pieces.
Just like Gunter.
We knew when it came to giving the solitary, bookish, and sometimes grumpy Gunter a mate, this person would need to be a vibrant, strong character who had the power to force Gunter out of his library. A character for Gunter to protect and cuddle.
Nikki more than fit the bill on that. As a captive of the Jaeggi for years, they’ve learned to be incredibly independent and distrustful, but the Burkhard clan will show them what it means to be loved and part of a family.
Here’s a quick description of the book:
Once upon a time, there was a stunningly gorgeous mage named Nikki.
They were trapped by evil, horrible Jaeggi mages for ten long years until they were rescued by the brave dragon named Gunter.
The grumpy red knight swept in, carrying them off to a fair castle, where they lived happily ever after.
That’s how the story’s supposed to go, anyway. Nikki would really like to have that fairytale ending, please and thank you.
It’s too bad Gunter is oblivious and the Jaeggi are interfering. Nikki may just have to cook up some explosions to help both situations along, because they’re determined to get their happily ever after.
Is there a magic how-to guide on things that go boom?
non-binary MC, Grumpy and Sunshine, it’s basically the air we breathe, Gunter needs a hug, Nikki likes to give them, crippling crush at first sight, Nikki has trust issues, for good reason, Nikki’s determined, Gunter is oblivious, mis-used poetry, Alric and Gunter are once again banned from drinking together, ever, schmoop, wall sex, the tongue thing is awesome, all hail Gunter’s tongue, violence, because bad guys, Nikki feels that explosions are an appropriate response to everything, Cameron and Nikki are explosion buddies, Nikki has mixed feelings on high heels, fairytales do come true
Now, I know a lot of readers get upset when I say this is the final book of the Scales ‘N’ Spells series, but I do have some good news on that front. Starting next year, AJ and I will begin work on a spin-off series focusing on the Valerii Clan (Ice Dragons) in Brazil with an entirely different big bad and new dragons for you to meet.
Does that mean we’ll be hearing from the Burkhard Clan? Yes, probably.
Will we hear from the Lost Clan? Possibly.
Will there be crazy mages and dragon antic? Definitely.
We don’t have any details to release yet. We start working on the first book in the series in February, so we’ll likely have some news in the spring about titles and release dates.
In addition, we do have a short for Ha Na that we’ve written. It needs to go through editing, but if you’d like to read it, make sure you’ve signed up for my newsletter or AJ’s. The easiest way to sign up for both is to answer the important question on AreYouAMage.com.
