Hatched: Dragon Defender

The second Hatched book releases August 2022!

Before I finished the first season of Hatched on Amazon’s serial platform, Kindle Vella, I knew Charl wasn’t done telling her story.

This second installment will soon be available and if you liked the first, I think you're going to love it!
