by Anne Leonard

by Viking Adult


A prince with a quest. A commoner with mysterious powers. And dragons that demand to be freed—at any cost.

Prince Corin has been chosen to free the dragons from their bondage to the Empire, but dragons aren’t big on directions. They have given him some of their power, but none of their knowledge. No one, not the dragons nor their riders, is even sure what keeps the dragons in the Empire’s control.

Tam, sensible daughter of a well-respected doctor, had no idea before she arrived in the capital that she is a Seer, gifted with visions. When the two run into each other (quite literally) in the library, sparks fly and Corin impulsively asks Tam to dinner. But it’s not all happily ever after. Never mind that the prince isn’t allowed to marry a commoner: war is coming to Caithen.

Torn between Corin’s quest to free the dragons and his duty to his country, the lovers must both figure out how to master their powers in order to save Caithen. With a little help from a village of secret wizards and a rogue dragonrider, they just might pull it off. Add Moth and Spark to Goodreads,

I'm so excited for Moth and Spark. I love novels about Dragons, and with it's recommendation to readers of Deborah Harkness and Diana Gabaldon, two amazing writers that I love, I can only imagine the epic and magical feel to it. I love it when fantasy books have that larger than life and historical feel, plus I can't resist books that supposedly are filled with  courtly intrigue and romance!
