Fire with Fire
Raised to be fierce dragon slayers, two sisters end up on opposite sides of the impending war when one sister forms an unlikely, magical bond with a dragon in this standalone YA contemporary fantasy that's perfect for fans of Slayer and Sorcery of Thorns. Dani and Eden Rivera were both born to kill dragons, but the sisters couldn't be more different. For Dani, dragon slaying takes a back seat to normal high school life, while Eden prioritises training above everything else. Yet they both agree on one thing: it's kill or be killed where dragons are concerned. Until Dani comes face-to-face with one and forges a rare and magical bond with him. As she gets to know Nox, she realizes that everything she thought she knew about dragons is wrong. With Dani lost to the dragons, Eden turns to mysterious and alluring sorcerers to help save her sister. Now on opposite sides of the conflict, each sister will do whatever it takes to save the other. But the two are playing with magic that is more dangerous than they know, and there is another, more powerful enemy waiting for them both in the shadows.

"Fire with Fire is the book equivalent of the best kind of action movie--the kind that gets in all the elaborate stunt sequences and fraught adventures, but also allows for enjoyable characters, nuanced relationships, and perhaps even a bit of intergenerational cooperation."--Tor.com "Every Destiny Soria book is a gem, and this one is certainly the most fiery."--Buzzfeed "[An] exciting, inclusive fantasy with a dash of romance.... Hits all the marks for an absorbing and high-spirited read."--Kirkus "A gripping tale filled with incredible metaphors, fitting pop culture references, and hilarious punchlines"--School Library Journal "Soria's fantasy ably balances entertainment and substance as she traces both girls' journeys, giving dragons a voice and taking a hard look at empathy along the way."--Booklist
