STORMDRAKE is available for preorder! Stormdrake, Book I in The Dragon Mage Chronicles, is now available for preorder! The official release date is February 28, 2020. Currently it is available in ebook format through both Kindle and Smashwords. A paperback version of the novel is in the works as well and should be available very soon. Finally, finally this book is available! I am super excited to share it with all of you at last. :)
I do recommend reading the prequel to The Dragon Mage Chronicles, The Magician's Apprentice, before beginning the Chronicles series (although it is not strictly necessary). The Magician's Apprentice is a m/m fantasy novel that begins the story of Jander Teregnan, a young man gifted in manipulating the strange energy his people know as magic. On the road far from home, he arrives in the capital city of Vallerin with the hope of finding a master who will be able to help him understand the arcane forces he can sense and interact with, but not reliably control. Once there, with the help of his loyal companion Gabrielle, he embarks on a journey that leads him into adventure, intrigue, danger, and romance as he becomes caught up in an adventure that will determine not only his fate, but the fate of his entire kingdom.
The Dragon Mage Chronicles picks up a year after the prequel leaves off. It continues the adventures of Jander, Andrei, Boaen, Alluin, and Gabrielle, delving deeper into the mysteries surrounding the dragons, the magic, and the darkness which is consuming Andrei's former apprentice. Both Jander and Andrei discover that balancing their relationship as lovers with their respective roles as master and apprentice is not as easy as it might have initially seemed. This first book in the Chronicles offers new enemies and questionable allies, epic battles and harrowing escapes, as well as a deepening mystery that will continue throughout the rest of the books in the series:
Stormdrake (Dragon Mage Chronicles Book I) by J.A. Jaken
Jander Teregnan has succeeded in his ambition to become a mage-apprentice, but the troubles that face him are far from over. He and Andrei set out on their first mission together as mage and apprentice to investigate a mysterious series of dragon attacks near a provincial city at the edge of the kingdom, where Jander's unique talents may particularly come into play. What they find there turns out to be far more devastating than a mere homicidal dragon, as they are caught up in a conspiracy that will threaten not only their own lives, but the lives of everyone in the kingdom they have sworn an oath to protect.</p>
