Firefighter Cole Brannigan is on the verge of retirement after 30 years on the job, and a decade fighting dragons. But during his final fire call, he discovers he’s immune to dragon smoke. It’s such a rare power that he’s immediately conscripted into the elite dragon-fighting force known as the Smoke Eaters. Retirement cancelled, Brannigan is re-assigned as a lowly rookie, chafing under his superiors. So when he discovers a plot to take over the city’s government, he takes matters into his own hands. With hundreds of innocent civilians in the crosshairs, it’s up to Brannigan and his fellow Smoke Eaters to repel the dragon menace.
The novel has already been getting praise from the great and good of the SFF community, including:
“An ingenious premise that Grigsby delivers on with intelligence and style. Smoke Eaters is a treat!”
— Jason M Hough, New York Times Bestseller
“It’s exactly as bonkers – and as brilliant – as you’d expect and I look forward to more from this author.”
– Anna Stephens, author of Godblind
“Profane and exhilarating, filled with unforgettable characters and scorching action, Smoke Eaters is an amazing mix of adventure, fantasy, and science-fiction. Grigsby is an electrifying new voice sounding out over the wraith-haunted land.”
– John Hornor Jacobs, award-winning author of Southern Gods and The Incorruptibles
