Ash Kickers

Smoke Eaters is a thrilling, exciting, funny and strangely heart-warming book, and Grigsby’s experience as a firefighter shines through on every page, lending grit and realism to this rollicking ride of a tale in which firefighters become dragon-slayers. It’s exactly as bonkers – and as brilliant – as you’d expect and I look forward to more from this author.”

With ex-firefighter Cole Brannigan in command of the Smoke Eaters, the dragon menace is under control. Thanks to non-lethal Canadian tech, the beasts are just tranquilized and locked up. But for Tamerica Williams, a job filled with action and danger has become routine. She’s so bored she nearly gets her whole team killed, and Brannigan has to step in. When a new threat emerges, the legendary bird of fire – the Phoenix – spreading fire like a plague and whipping dragons into a frenzy, it’s a perfect task for Williams, but killing the Phoenix just brings it back stronger. Is that too much excitement, even for Williams?

Praise for Sean Grigsby

“An ingenious premise that Grigsby delivers on with intelligence and style. Smoke Eaters is a treat!”
Jason M Hough, New York Times Bestseller

“I love dragon stories in which the dragons are real monsters, laying waste to everything around them; and I love novels with protagonists who aren’t callow young adults learning that they’re chosen ones. Smoke Eaters has terrific dragons, and a hero with some miles and experience on him, plus great writing and a wicked sense of humor. I flew through it.”
– Alex Bledsoe, author of The Hum and the Shiver and Burn Me Deadly

“Sean Grigsby has conceived what promises to be a brilliant and harrowing series. Dragons have returned, bringing fire, revenant spirits and ash in their wake. Cole Brannigan, a grizzled no nonsense fire-fighter, is there to stand in their way. 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

“I’ve been waiting for a book like this for years. Original, exciting, Smoke Eaters is a red-hot page-turner.”
– Adam Christopher, author of Empire State and Made to Kill

Smoke Eaters is a thrilling, exciting, funny and strangely heart-warming book, and Grigsby’s experience as a firefighter shines through on every page, lending grit and realism to this rollicking ride of a tale in which firefighters become dragon-slayers. 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

“This smoking debut is a shot of adrenaline to the urban fantasy genre. Grigsby’s knowledge of firefighting combined with hot dragon action and blistering humor create an irresistible romp of a read.”
– Jaye Wells, USA Today Bestselling author of the Prospero’s War series

“This red-hot debut will torch off all your skin and leave you in the burn ward. The skin grafts won’t take, and you’ll die of a massive infection after an agonizing month of pain unlike anything you can imagine. Also dragons.”
– Patrick S Tomlinson, author of Gatecrashers and Children of the Divide

“A fun, fast, foul-mouthed thrill ride with more than its share of real surprises and pathos.”
– Spencer Ellsworth, author of A Red Peace

“Rollicking pulp action around a deep, dark heart brimming with barely-contained rage. The book balances brutal deprivation and violence against moments of pride, joy, and sadness. Even pitted at deadly odds against one another, the women of Daughters of Forgotten Light form powerful relationships that shine against their bleak world. The book never apologizes and never pulls a punch, and neither do its characters.”
– Caitlin Starling, author of The Luminous Dead

“Put your helmet on! Grit, grease, and fast-paced futuristic action, complete with hardbitten women throwing energy boomerangs while speeding on motorcycles, makes this a riveting ride.”
– Cat Rambo, Nebula nominee and president of SFWA

“High octane and hard hitting. Daughters of Forgotten Light is exactly what I want from sci-fi: badass women getting it done… with unapologetic grindhouse glam.”
– KC Alexander, author of Necrotech and Mass Effect: Andromeda: Nexus Uprising

“Grab your energy boomerang and get ready for a wild ride! Grigsby’s latest book is a full-throttle nightmarish sci-fi Mad Max: Fury Road. It’s violent, intense, and packed with passion as exiled women fight for their very right to exist.”
– Beth Cato, Nebula nominee and author of Breath of Earth

“An exciting story that breathes new life into the urban fantasy genre.”
– Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Grigsby’s world is vividly rendered and full of engaging detail (dragons don’t have wings as in the stories, their victims linger on as ghostly spirits). As a romp, it delivers by the gallon drum.”
– Irish Times

“Read while listening to a thunderous thrash-metal playlist.”
– Financial Times

SEAN GRIGSBY is a professional firefighter in central Arkansas, where he writes about lasers, aliens, and guitar battles with the Devil when he’s not fighting dragons. He grew up on Goosebumps books in Memphis, Tennessee, and hosts the Cosmic Dragon podcast.
