Riding Lightning (Paperback)
Maya Rose has a problem. She's the last in her line of dragon shifters, and if she doesn't produce an heir soon, it could be disastrous for her kingdom.
In order to remedy this, her father, the king, has gathered the greatest heroes from across the lands, and set them on a quest to not only save the kingdom, but to win Maya's love.
Should they succeed, they will become her husband and rule by her side. Should they fail to win her love, death is the only answer.
But with so many dashing men willing to do anything to win her hand, how is a girl to choose?
Then again, no one ever said she had to pick just one.
After all, the fate of the realm is at stake, and maybe this time, more is merrier.
Generation after generation, both hope and sorrow hit the two families in this story hard. Gyasi uses the episodic nature to her advantage, in a way that inspires a fevered anticipation similar to the tv show Roots. A moving work that would be a great choice for book clubs and writing classes. - Jessica
