Revin is a reliant and tenacious woman, one of the only femailes who hunts and trades wild dragons. A chance to capture a rare golden dragon sends her on a quest to a small village far to the north--deep into uninhabitable mountains—in the heart of a fierce winter.
The village of Awakening’s very existence is a paradox that is only the beginning of surprises that await Revin. A stranger she calls “Blue Eyes” brings up feelings she’s never experienced and a woman, the leader of the village, is oddly familiar though they’ve never met before.
The journey becomes more than just the hunt as Revin unravels a conspiracy behind a ceremony, The Gathering, and something called the Time of the Burning. The situation becomes dire when she learns that the ritual may involve her and the golden dragon.

Not just for fantasy lovers.
I don't usually read fantasy but was attracted to this novella. It's a short read (according to Kindle, at my reading speed it took about 1-1/2 hours), but it has just about everything. There's a little romance, a mystery, and a tough woman heroine. There's also a golden dragon, a spirit world, and a secret. The settings are well done and easy to picture, and the plot carried me through to the satisfying ending. I really enjoyed it and will pick up more fantasy novels in the future.
Peter Cruikshank weaves a wonderful tale.
I found this Novella to be very enjoyable reading. Ashes of the Dragon is a well written story with excellent character development. Peter is a wonderful storyteller, and this novella provides some background information for the Dragon-Called book series. If you love medieval fantasy, good story telling, and enjoyable characters, then this is the perfect novella for you.
