The Dog Rose Crown
by Laura Sykes
Chained to her Mother’s selfish whims, Ella’s only friends are the Brother Adam, the beekeeping priest, and Kigu, the tiny dragon that she must keep hidden. Times are tough for everyone, and Mother’s ridiculous demands don’t make things any easier. Then late one night, while disobeying Mother’s orders, Ella finds herself caught in a dance with the fey; one from which she may not be able to escape.
