Curated by Terah Edun

Sometimes you have a craving. A craving for lots of magic, mythical creatures, and a few things that go bump in the night. For those of us who like to mix our cravings with the best aspects of our inner-geekdom, we turn to our favorite friends in lands of lore.

Friends like Drizzt Do'Urden of the Forgotten Realms and the sweeping epics of Dragonlance by Margaret Weis. It is those old friends that I had in mind while curating this bundle of new fantasy authors that will sweep off your feet and up into the skies of new lands.

I am proud to be working with StoryBundle and to present Dragons & Darkness, a nine-book fantasy bundle that features legendary dragons and spine-tingling darkness. These nine titles encompass eight unique fantasy worlds from bestselling authors that will leave you salivating for more.

This bundle has it all. SHADOW OF A WINTER KING by Erik Scott De Bie is the ultimate epic fantasy that forces reader and characters to explore the awful things in their pasts and in the process – discover facets of themselves they'd rather lay buried in darkness. While Daniel Arenson's A DAWN OF DRAGONFIRE will leave you aflame for more – more magic, more adventures, and more escapes into a dragon universe alongside human-shifting dragons who are taking on their mortal enemies – phoenixes of the sun.

The New York Times bestselling author Terah Edun brings BLADES OF MAGIC into the bundle – complete with a heroine who gives no mercy and a twisting plot that will have you questioning what's right, what's wrong, and what justice really entails. THORNBEAR by Michael Manning is a story of both friendship and loyalty even in dark times as well as a superbly crafted epic that will have you dreaming of wizards and warriors.

While HIDDEN and HUNTED by Megg Jensen is a different approach in a fantasy genre awash in lore. It'll grab your attention and not let go as you enter the world of the Dragonlands, a place that until now was shrouded in secret and lost in mystery, alongside a young woman named Tressa. Your fate will be sealed with J.D. Hallowell's DRAGON FATE and Brian Anderson's DRAGONVEIN, as pages and pages of unimaginable power and mythical creatures stoke your imagination.

Brian's DRAGONVEIN explores an alternate-France in the post-World Wars. A France with dragons and a soldier attached to the 101st Airborne whose only hope lies within the kingdom of the dwarves. DRAGON FATE by J.D. Hallowell takes you back into heroic fantasy adventure with swords and chainmail as a former soldier takes on renegade dragon riders to save the land he calls home. Oh, but you want more? Then feast your eyes on DRAGONFRIEND by Marc Secchia and the timeless tale of Hualiama and his dragon, Flicker, as they fight a battle to restore a King to his throne and become a legend in their own right as well.

As a special bonus for the three weeks this bundle is live, we're giving away Hidden, the first book in the Dragonlands series, for free. All you have to do is sign up for our newsletter and we'll send the book to you, no strings attached. We also never email you except to tell you about our new bundles!

This bundle features New York Times bestselling authors, Dungeons & Dragons alumni, USA Today Bestselling authors and over half a million words of epic adventure.

If the above write-up isn't enough – NINE books, half a MILLION words, a free BONUS, and fantasy worlds to get lost in - guess what? THERE'S MORE. The authors of Dragons & Darkness have come together to offer one humongous prize to purchasers of their bundle.

Every buyer above the bonus-level will be entered to win the grand prize! A brand-new edition (platform of their choice) of Dragon Age: Inquisition Deluxe Edition.

So that you can not only get lost reading in worlds of dragons & darkness to your hearts content, but game it as well! – Terah Edun
