Highlighted Release


My name is Thea, and I’m a monster hunter. Or a monster, depending on who you ask…

My dad trained me to be tough and ruthless, so I could replace him someday as head of our shifter clan. Then I discovered my father wasn’t the man I thought he was. So I went freelance instead. Now, I fight for the underdogs my dad used to exploit. Sure, I get paid. But I don’t do it for the money…

So when a rogue werewolf I’m hunting turns out to be innocent, I want to know who framed him, and why. His name is Marcus, and with his broad shoulders and piercing eyes, he can certainly take care of himself. But someone wants him dead. And I want to keep him alive… At least long enough for me to figure out what he’s hiding.

Because Marcus is more than just your average shifter. He’s something much stranger, and much more dangerous. An ancient secret lurks behind his fierce, smoldering gaze.

And once it’s revealed, it could tear this world apart…


New Series!


Monsters lurk beneath the roaring high seas …

When street rat Del stows away on a merchant vessel he’s worried about staying hidden, not sea monsters. But when a kraken attacks, Del is thrown overboard and finds himself stranded on a desert island, one of three survivors. Rescue is impossible when they discover the kraken still lurking in the surrounding waters, desperate for the dragon eggs one of them is carrying.

Del, wealthy merchant’s daughter Etenia, and former dragon rider Lathan must find a way off the island before the kraken finishes them. Del has only ever heard rumors of dragon riders and thought those stories were myths, but now Lathan’s clutch of dragon eggs is their only hope. But Del knows all too well that he can only rely on himself, so how is he supposed to bond with a dragon?

He’ll need to learn quick or the monster in the deep will get him. Help isn’t coming and the only way off the island will be on the back of a dragon. Can Del really rely on his companions and a dragon hatchling? Or will his only hope of escape be to go it alone?

What Readers Are Saying

Richard Buie — Reader

“I loved it!! I am a dragon fanatic and this was a well written, fast paced read! A little different version of dragon communication and attitude than Anne McCaffrey’s books (which I absolutely love by the way!) I would highly recommend this book to any one, any age! Already started on the 2nd book!!!”

S. Martin — Reader

 

 

“Very entertaining! I am looking forward to reading more stories about these characters. The story was paced very well, held my attention and when I had to stop reading I would anticipate my next session. Can’t ask for more from a story.”

Tara B — Reader

 

 

“I loved this book! It is a new spin on the ‘dragon bonding with human’ dynamic. Two people, not one, are chosen by the dragon to be its riders. And when they are a pair as mis-matched in station and experience as Thea and Seb are, the fur is going to fly! I can’t wait for the next books – just got book two and started reading it, hope it’s as good as book one!”

Kindle Customer — Reader

 

 

“I have enjoyed dragons and their world all my life. However, the new direction Ava Richardson has taken is fantastic. I love the interaction between dragon and rider. But, I have always felt there was something else needed, another element to really bring the dragon rider bond full circle. Two riders and their dragon all working together to fulfil their oath was inspiring. I look forward to the continuing story that, Ava has begun to unfold. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves dragons as I do. Ava Richardson has something truly special to give, to all who love dragons and the world they encompass.”

Ava Richardson writes epic page-turning Young Adult Fantasy books. She creates lovable characters and drops them into intricate worlds that are barely contained within your eReader. Her current work is the ‘Return of the Darkening Series’, which features Seb, Thea and their shared dragon, Kalax.
