Description

Fifteen-year-old Alys is not a witch. But that doesn't matter--the villagers think she is and have staked her out on a hillside as a sacrifice to the local dragon.
It's late, it's cold, and it's raining, and Alys can think of only one thing--revenge. But first she's got to escape, and even if she does, how can one girl possibly take on an entire town alone?
Then the dragon arrives--a dragon that could quite possibly be the perfect ally. . . .

Praise For Dragon's Bait

"Wicked wit and charm . . . as well as a gutsy heroine and a sexy dragon."--Booklist

"Alys herself is a worthy heroine, with a capricious gift for irony. A thoughtful mainstream fantasy."--Publishers Weekly

"[A] dark, bittersweet romance."--Kirkus Reviews
