Hello everyone! I’m here with a cover reveal for the newest novel by Kendra A. Ardnek, and a short interview with the author. Without further ado, may I present:
Lady Dragon, Tela Du
Two girls with one face
Two girls with twisted fate
One in purple, one in red
One shall speak the other’s death
Who shall win their final war?
Lady Dragon or Tela Du?
Amber, the Lady Dragon, has been promised a fifty-year reign over Rizkaland and nothing can stop her from claiming it. But when you’ve lived six thousand years, fifty is such a pitiful number. Only one person can keep her from making this reign permanent – the Tela Du, a girl who shall share Amber’s face.
The last thing Petra wants is a magical world interrupting her plans for a normal life, let alone an ultimate battle against the Lady Dragon with only one prophesied survivor. She has her childhood best friend, Reuben, at her side, but she’s not sure if he’s more of a help or a hindrance right now. Though she’d much prefer to just return home and forget about this whole crazy affair, things change when she discovers that the world has surprising connections to her own family – including her sister who disappeared without a trace two years before. Still, Rizkaland can’t possibly expect her to risk her very life, can it?
We’ve got a short excerpt for you, and then the cover.
Why are you here, Amber?” asked the eldest of the kings, who was only twenty-four himself.
Amber drew herself to her full stature as she folded her arms at her waist and stared the man in the eye. “To negotiate terms of surrender.”
“You surrender?” asked one of the queens.
Amber shook her head and turned away. “Oh, no, that would be silly. You will be doing the surrendering. I’m giving you the opportunity to do it now, peaceably. Because otherwise, I’m not sure you’ll get another chance, at least not unless at great cost.”

And now we’ve got a few answers from Kendra:
Longest book you’ve ever read?
According to Goodreads, it’s David Copperfield, and I’m willing to agree with that. Unless you want to count the Lord of the Rings as one book, which my copy is.
Favorite sea creature?
Favorite flying animal?
Dragons are just awesome all around you know? and can be tailor-made to anyone’s preferences. Like ’em big? Have ’em. Like ’em small? Take ’em by the doezen. Bright colors, dull colors. Evil or good. Fire, wings, you name it. If you want it, the dragon’s got it.
