OVERRIDE

Forged in Fire

Sarah Jane Beauhall thinks she's getting her life in order. The blacksmith turned dragon slayer has it all figured out—little things like dealing with the political intrigue of dragons who secretly run our world and learning to wield the magic that she has been given by none other than Odin, who has been fighting the dragons for millennia. And then there is the matter of coming to terms with who she is…and how to build a life with her partner, Katie. All these things are forced into the background, however, when a magic-wielding serial killer starts prowling the Pacific Northwest. All of his victims have ties to Sarah.
 
Sarah will have to unravel the web she finds closing around her as a powerful necromancer and a crazed blood cult known as the Dragon Liberation Front work to tear apart everything she holds dear. Forged in Fire is the third title in J.A. Pitts's urban fantasy series
