Get Ready For Valkyrie Bestiary, a New Paranormal Suspense Series by Kim McDougall

A pest-controller with a soft heart can easily end up with an apartment full of rescues. Even more so, in a city over-run with fae creatures. When Kyra Green finds a baby dragon in need of help, she doesn’t want to bring him home. But until she can discover why someone is trying to kill all the dragons, she won’t let him out of her sight.

Rough Draft Teaser

This new series takes place in a post-apocalyptic Montreal, a world where city-states are the only havens in a landscape that has been ravaged by magical wars. Our hero, Kyra Greene, runs her own business, wrangling fae pests. But an exterminator with a soft heart finds herself the caretaker of a whole menagerie of exotic critters.

In this scene, Kyra has just fought and wounded a poacher she found trying to trap a thunder of dragons. One little blue dragon keeps getting in her way.

I raised my sword for the killing blow.

And the clumsy blue dragon bumped into me again.

“Quit it!” I said turning my attention away from the unconscious poacher.

The dragon sat back on his haunches and watched me. His stubby wings flared open and closed like bellows breathing air into his lungs. He stood no taller than my hip, with dark blue scales on his limbs grading to lighter blue on his pear-shaped belly. He had the big, copper eyes of an anime character and a blunt snout, speckled with silver freckles. A soft fluff of blue feathers crested his head.

He was ridiculously cute.

“This is your fault.” I pointed my sword at the poacher. The little dragon wagged his tail.
