We are overjoyed to welcome Rebecca Kim Wells who will introduce her captivating fantasy debut novel, Shatter the Sky, about a determined young woman who sets out to rescue her kidnapped girlfriend by stealing a dragon from the corrupt emperor.
"In Shatter the Sky, Rebecca Kim Wells has created a fierce, brave, stalwart protagonist and a full-realized fantasy world reminiscent of writers like Tamora Pierce and Robin McKinley, all infused with intersectionality, feminism, and, of course, dragons. This is a fairytale for people who have never seen themselves in fairytales before. Anne McCaffrey for the next generation, and I absolutely devoured it." Mackenzi Lee, bestselling author of The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue
