FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AND THEN THERE WERE DRAGONS
FANTASY, ADVENTURE, CRIPPLING SOCIAL ANXIETY, AND A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF WEIRD
Hell claimed Amanda Grey's soul. Someone should have checked the return policy.
For Amanda Grey, stopping the all-encompassing Apocalypse fated to plunge mankind’s entire existence into never-ending darkness ... just kind of sucked. Sure, she managed to capture every demon set loose on New York City. And yes, she ended up thwarting an evil angel’s plans to destroy humanity. But she also lost her sister, her apartment, and—oh yeah—Amanda Grey totally died and got her soul banished to Hell as a result.
Luckily, she’s not the type to take that kind of thing lying down.
In the second installment of Alcy Leyva’s Shades of Hell series, And Then There Were Dragons [Black Spot Books, July 30, 2019] thrusts Amanda Grey into a whole new world of weird as she ventures out into the fiery wastelands, decrepit cities, and Olive Gardens of the afterlife in search of her sister. As the penultimate entry in the Shades of Hell series, Amanda will come face-to-face with the truth behind the demon Shades, as well as a destiny she sure as hell didn't ask for.
Leyva’s And Then There Were Crows established Amanda Grey—a recluse with crippling social anxiety—as an unwilling hero during the End of Days. In her next adventure, Leyva brings the same twisted sense of adventure to And Then There Were Dragons, which sees Grey coming into her own. With a little hellfire—and some timely help from some unlikely characters from her past—Amanda Grey must fight off the violent hordes of Hell in order to save the soul of her sister, finding her own true potential—and the closest thing she can find to redemption—in the process. This new journey serves as both a stage for self-reflection and the basis for a new life through death, and sets the stage for what’s to come in Amanda’s next chapter.
“I really wanted to evolve Amanda Grey as a character in Dragons,” says Leyva. “I wanted to explore what happens when someone who has been bound by social anxiety sheds those chains and comes into her own. To me, this sequel is the next step in Amanda Grey's journey to rewrite her story and become stronger as she faces everything that’s thrown at her—from losing her family, to conquering her inner demons, to taking on the very powers of Hell itself.”
