About the Book

Original Publication Date: August 04, 2015

Out of all the mysterious boarders who call Sanctuary home, no one is more antisocial or withdrawn than Maxis Drago. But then, it’s hard to blend in with the modern world when you have a fifty foot wingspan.

Centuries ago, he was cursed by an enemy who swore to see him fall. An enemy who took everything from him and left him forever secluded.

But Fate is a bitch, with a wicked sense of humor. And when she throws old enemies together and threatens the wife he thought had died centuries ago, he comes back with a vengeance. Modern day New Orleans has become a battleground for the oldest of evils. And two dragons will hold the line, or go down in flames.

The Hero: Maxis

Max is a severe loner. One of the rare dragon Katagaria, he makes his home in the attic of Peltier House in New Orleans. He doesn't mingle with others often, but he does have special skills that come in handy from time to time. Ruthless and cold, he prefers solitude and speaks to very few-- Aimee Peltier is one of the few. No one knows anything about his past as he likes it that way. There is a belief that he was wounded so badly in battle...

The Heroine: Seraphina

One of the last of her kind, Sera has buried everyone she's ever loved. She trusts in nothing and no one, except in the willingness of others to cut her throat if she ever lets her guard drop. A dragonswan of many secrets, she has survived the centuries by her own guile and fighting skills. If she's going to go down, she will do so in flames, and by taking her enemies with her.

The Story Behind The Story

After all these years, Max finally came to me while I was writing Son of No One. I knew who his heroine was, but it wasn't until I had the family reunited that it all cemented into my mind. 2015 is truly The Year The Dragons Rise.

*Spoiler* Question, it lists jaden,jared,noir, and zebulon as characters in the book but after reading it I don't see them even mentioned in it. Did I over look something?

Stephen, August 4, 2015

    They are all mentioned in it and it directly relates to them and has very important information for their arcs.

    Carl, MB Staff, August 4, 2015

Love this series, Styxx was my favorite, but I think this might replace it. Of course my favorite in the league series is Born of defiance. Love your writing and can never wait for the next one.

Suzie, August 4, 2015

Few more days!!! I have a question. In the wait time i have read and read and read other dh books. In acheron we read about his weadding. I was wondering why in styxx we dont read about that?

Eric, July 26, 2015

    Because Sherri had already written it in Acheron. She didn't think it needed to be covered in Styxx so she skipped over it as the scene didn't add anything new to Styxx's story and wasn't "important" to Styxx. It would have only shown him sad, which we already knew he was.

Can signed books be ordered anywhere for international delivery? The launch party hosts only appear to delivery within the States. Thanks.

Lisa, July 14, 2015

    Premiere Collectibles offers international shipping and they come with collector trading cards.

Aimee is pregnant?

leonela, July 13, 2015

Will there be another excerpt released before the book comes out. Please. Need more!!!!!!!!!

Daniel, July 11, 2015

Question...how come pre-order is only available in the U.S. iTunes iBooks store and not in the Australian one?

Caitlin, June 15, 2015

    That's a decision the retailer makes. You'll have to ask Amazon as we have no idea. It could just be they haven't added it to their store there yet.

    Carl, MB Staff, June 17, 2015

I can not put into words just how excited I am to finally read Maxis' story. :D

Haley, June 3, 2015

I just finish reading the excerpt of Dragonbane and I'm salivating. I can't wait for this e-book to drop. I've been reading this series for years. I am excited Aimee pregnant. And I can't want to find out what going on with the rest of the gang.
