is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday
(surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a
“crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not
with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And
definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for
with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed
to someone else. Someone who isn’t a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for
an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate
isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to
fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.
adapt to the status quo…well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.

**Read an Excerpt**
On the drive back to school, Bryn reflected on how her life had recently gone to hell. It had all started when flames shot out of her mouth on her sixteenth birthday, proving she wasn’t completely human. Since then she’d been shipped off to a secret school for dragons—the Institute for Excellence—where she was learning how to control her shape-shifting dragon powers. She’d faced discrimination, death threats, and poisoning. She’d been blown up and involved in a battle to the death with a radical Revisionist member—and she’d been there for only a few months.
Though not everything about her new life was bad. She had a sexy boyfriend, Black dragon Zavien Blackthorn, and two good friends, Clint and Ivy. Being a crossbred dragon meant she had both the Red and Blue dragons’ breath weapons, fire and ice, and even though she was the only crossbreed, she could still outfly even the fastest Blue. Of course, that’s why some of the other Clans hated her. She’d upset the natural order of things in this color-coded world, where the Directorate dictated what Red, Black, Green, Orange, and Blue dragon Clan members could do as a profession and whom they could marry. It was absurd. Yet most dragons didn’t question it.
Part of Zavien’s appeal lay in the fact that he headed up the student Revisionist group that petitioned the Directorate to change outdated laws. Bryn glanced at Directorate lawyer Merrick Overton, who was driving the Cadillac SUV hybrid she was riding in. Her classmate and former nemesis Jaxon Westgate rode shotgun. She and Jaxon no longer hated each other. Scratch that: he no longer hated her based on his father’s vendetta against her mother, but that didn’t mean they were friends. Funny how saving someone’s life could turn you from enemies to…what? Not friends. Frenemies, maybe? Who knew? It’s not like she wanted to hang out with him, but there was a weird level of trust between them now that she didn’t know what to do with.
