A Wild and Unremarkable Thing - A Novella by Jen Castleberry #YA #Fantasy

Wild and Unremarkable Thing
Jen Castleberry

YA Fantasy

years have passed since a Fire Scale scorched Cayda’s village.
Fifteen years of beatings, of bare kitchen cupboards and sloppy
swordplay. Fifteen years of biting her lip for her father’s cane
while her younger sisters did the same for the grimy patrons of the
village brothels. Fifteen years of staring steadfastly after beauty
in an increasingly ugly world.

with hair shorn and breast bound, Cayda marches into the Summer Alps
as Cody, a hopeful Champion seeking a dragon-slayer’s reward, with
the full weight of her family’s survival on her shoulders.

the road between poverty and prosperity is rife with beasts,
betrayals, and baser temptations. Sensible Cayda soon discovers that
she is not the only Champion with her eye on the prize, or the only
one wearing a disguise.
monsters, gods, and royalty hot on her heels, Cayda must ask herself
if victory is worth sacrificing her identity for – or her life.

Wild and Unremarkable Thing pits girl against dragon in a stunning
blend of Greek mythology and medieval lore. Readers will not quickly
forget the diverse cast or the thrilling, sexy ride!

Castleberry resides in Virginia Beach with her husband and pets. Her
background is in Communications and Animal Welfare. All of her pets
