"Fireborne is everything I want in fantasy."--Rachel Hartman, New York Times bestselling author of Seraphina

Game of Thrones meets Red Rising in a debut young adult fantasy that's full of rivalry, romance . . . and dragons.


Annie and Lee were just children when a brutal revolution changed their world, giving everyone--even the lowborn--a chance to test into the governing class of dragonriders.

Now they are both rising stars in the new regime, despite backgrounds that couldn't be more different. Annie's lowborn family was executed by dragonfire, while Lee's aristocratic family was murdered by revolutionaries. Growing up in the same orphanage forged their friendship, and seven years of training have made them rivals for the top position in the dragonriding fleet.

But everything changes when survivors from the old regime surface, bent on reclaiming the city.

With war on the horizon and his relationship with Annie changing fast, Lee must choose to kill the only family he has left or to betray everything he's come to believe in. And Annie must decide whether to protect the boy she loves . . . or step up to be the champion her city needs.

From debut author Rosaria Munda comes a gripping adventure that calls into question which matters most: the family you were born into, or the one you've chosen.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Steve West’s voice is stately and resonant as he delivers the flashback sequences that show Lee and Annie’s shared childhood in an orphanage. Coulson’s Lee and Moll’s Annie are both very likable, and the narrators do an exceptional job expressing the characters’ complex emotions…Moll also demonstrates her skill in the rich Scottish accents she gives characters from the Highlands. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
