Dragonfly and The Glass Swallow
I've just re-covered the British edition of Dragonfly and The Glass Swallow. If you like epic fantasy set in far off lands, then why not put this on your summer reading list? Dragonfly also at a special summer price - just £1.54.
Recent review from a reader (Francesca): 'I got Dragonfly when it was first released and it has been my favourite book since! When I realised that you had also written the Glass Swallow, I was over the moon.
