The Kingdom of Wendar is in turmoil.
King Henry still holds the crown, but his reign has long been contested by his sister Sabella, and there are many eager to flock to her banner. Internal conflict weakens Wendar's defences, drawing raiders, human and inhuman, across its borders.
Terrifying portents abound and dark spirits walk the land.
Two innocents are thrust into the midst of the conflict. Alain, a young man granted a vision by the Lady of Battles, and Liath, a young woman with the power to change the course of history. Both must discover the truth about themselves beforethey can accept their fates. For in a war where sorcery, not swords, may determine the final outcome, the price of failure may be more than their own lives.

"[S]o perfectly cultivated and expressed that you can’t help but be drawn in to read, on the edge of your seat, every chapter and every page." - Fantasy Book Review
"King's Dragon begins the intriguing saga of bastards and sorcerors, clerics and warriors. Deft characterization and a finely rendered range of emotions make Elliott's latest effort stand out from the increasingly crowded fantasy genre...If you've never before encountered Kate Elliott's pen, there's no better place than King's Dragon to start." -CurledUp.Com
"The first volume of Crown of Stars, another complex fantasy saga of political and magical intrigue, bodes extremely well.[...] The saga's world is exceedingly well built (including a working economy, for instance), its pacing is brisk enough to keep the pages fluttering...This certainly could become one of the best multivolume fantasies--fans, take note!"
