A priestess, a dragon god - and a lie that threatens to destroy them all. Celia is about to break her vow.

As the head priestess of the most powerful dragon temple in the empire - Celia is a shining example of knowledge, purity, and unquestioning loyalty to the imperial couple, the legendary dragon gods themselves.

Sworn caretakers of their citizens, the priestesses must awaken the power of the spirit arts in others and guide the next generations.

But all is not what it seems. Everything they've been taught, everything Celia knows, is wrong.

Following Celia's disastrous visit to the capital, she is trapped amidst a chaotic scheme that spans over a thousand years beyond her lifetime... and is now faced with the ultimate betrayal.

Her Imperial Highness seeks to destroy Celia and her people - the very same people who serve her empire without question.

As the other dragon temple's refugees pour in, Celia is forced to decide where her loyalties lie.

Will she make a final stand against a dragon god and protect her family, or will her loyalty to the gods last until her final breath?

Perfect for fans of strong female leads, intricate magic, complex epic fantasy plots and of course, dragons. Be sure to scroll up and grab this prequel now! The Last Stand is a prequel epic fantasy novella to the Empire of the Dragon Gods Trilogy with Book One: The Dragon Princess coming soon. Sneek peek inside!

4 out of 5 (very good)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

A stunning book that shocks you on the first page and weaves an enchanting and gripping story that doesn't show signs of letting go easily. Which is just as well as this is part of an intriguing fantasy series!

Celia pretty much steals the book, from doing things that she shouldn't to doing things that she has no choice over. She is strong and sensitive, which is a winning combination.

This is the perfect book to escape with, enough detail to envelope you in the culture but not too much that you get overwhelmed.

I'd love this to be adapted in to a film along with the rest of the series....we need it!
