Forged in Fire

Sarah Jane Beauhall (Volume 3)

John A. Pitts

Tor Books




Sarah Jane Beauhall, 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. And all of his victims have ties to Sarah.

Sarah must 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 volume in J. A.Pitts's compelling urban fantasy series.

I kept Katie back and to the right of me as we followed the she-troll into the clearing. Here the snow was deep enough to see the paths the troll had made and to see where she was heading. Even with the sheep slung over her...


Praise for Forged in Fire

“Fans of the first novel will find this one equally enjoyable, as Pitts mixes familiar urban fantasy tropes with some new twists.” —Publishers Weekly on Honeyed Words

“Dark urban fantasy with some clever touches that should appeal to urban fantasy fans.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A hip, urban take on dragons and dwarves packed with great one-liners. Add to that, a sexy blacksmith in Doc Martens. It's about time we had a fantasy heroine like Sarah Beauhall!” —Kay Kenyon, author of Bright of the Sky, on Black Blade Blues
