The Kiss From a Dragon
BY C.D. PENNINGTON
A fantasy novel set in the fictional realm of Evorene.
THE KISS FROM A DRAGON centres around the three Proudstone sisters – Cerana, Jana and Esteri. The young women’s lives are turned upside down when Esteri, the youngest sibling, mysteriously contracts an ancient and potentially deadly disease.
Enlisting the aid of a local apothecary to diagnose Esteri’s harrowing condition, the sisters soon realise there is more to this disease than first meets the eye.
The mystery of how Esteri first contracted the disease gives way to an even greater problem – how to cure it. According to legend, the disease can only be cured using an ingredient found from the most impossible of sources – a dragon. The problem is, dragons have not been in existence for centuries.
As the family are forced apart in an attempt to find answers and source an unlikely cure, Cerana finds hope in the form of an enigmatic young woman following a chance encounter.
But the little hope Cerana clings onto is fraught with danger, and she soon discovers there is an even more terrifying story to the disease – one that will have dire consequences for the entire realm should she fail.
How can you treat a disease, when the cure has not been seen for centuries?

I don’t have any trouble finding ideas for my novels.
It’s getting those ideas down on paper and into something that people might want to read – that’s my biggest problem.
