Flint, Flare, Flame

Coming Winter 2021, Swoon Reads/Macmillan

Oksana and Pran weren’t born fire-breathing monsters. But the Vesimaan Empire kidnapped them. Transformed them. Demonized them. 

Now spitting flames and with eyes stained black, they are forced into the army. They must burn anyone who opposes the empire … or be incinerated themselves. Their only comforts are the kisses they steal in shadows as they dream of a life together in freedom.

After a troop of fellow soldiers escapes the copper fortress, Pran and Oksana vow to take action. Oksana is hellbent on disbanding the army and returning home. But Pran is determined to become the army’s new master—by any means necessary—and destroy the empire.

In this land of ashen-gray morals, the more Pran and Oksana chase the murky paths to freedom, the more they torch their ties to each other.
