We’ve come to the end of the first Fate – Fire – Shifter – Dragon series. It’s been a quite the ride! Thank you for taking it with not only with me, but also with Rysa, Ladon, Dragon, Billy, and the people of the Dragon’s Legion. Readers are why I write. Thank you!
The Burning World:
The world’s going to die. Whole nations burn.
How? The Fates saw dragons. They just saw the wrong dragons.
In the final, pulse-pounding installment of the Fate – Fire – Shifter – Dragon series, fate abandons the people of the Dragon’s Legion — and the world. While death rains from the sky, a fog shrouds Rysa’s ability to future-see a path out of the apocalypse — and to help Daisy as she manifests a terrifying, new Shifter ability.
When an unlikely hero joins the Legion for one last battle, all might not be lost. But they quickly learn that they’re fighting not just in the present, but also in the past and the future, as well. Sacrifices were made. Heroes will be lost. Who will stop the Burning World?
Book Five: ALL BUT HUMAN
Can a Fate and her dragon lover live a normal life?
Rysa Torres survived the hell of her Fate activation. She survived the weight of healing the wounds inflicted on her fiancé Ladon’s tattered soul. So how could her final year as a normal college student at a normal university be anything but… normal?
But sometimes the ordinary masks chaos. Sometimes, monsters lurk in crevices so deep not even a Prime Fate like Rysa—or bloodhound Shifter like her friend, Daisy Pavlovich—sense the coming attack.
When the worst Fates and Shifters on Earth come calling for one last dance, Rysa must fight—and embrace the darkness within her paranormal heritage.
Will her heart—and her soul—survive?
All But Human:
Oh, and there’s nifty new covers on the entire series! We’ll be loading the new covers to the websites over the next few days.
I also changed the numbering on BONDS, BROKEN, and SILENT to better reflect how they fall in the Fate – Fire – Shifter – Dragon series. They now have their own number! ALL BUT HUMAN (available early 2015) will now be #5.

“Kris Austen Radcliffe has done it again, another FIVE STAR review for her third novel in a trilogy that I am now such a huge fan of. These books are worth a read.”
Book Three: FIFTH OF BLOOD
An insane Shifter stole Rysa’s talisman, jacked her body, and caused her abilities to nova. Now, she wastes away in front of Ladon’s eyes and he can’t stop the power that’s eating her alive.
Watching her anguish triggers flashbacks. When Ladon’s soul ruptures, only Rysa holds the cure he needs. But she’s too far away to stop what’s eating him alive.
With the help of the newly-healed, newly-invincible Derek, Rysa runs from the worst Fates and Burners on the planet as she desperately tries to heal Ladon—and herself. Can she solve their problems—and recover her talisman—before the long immortal find their prey?

Rysa’s out of control abilities are eating her alive. No one—not Ladon and Dragon, nor their sisters—dare stand within thirty feet of the lethal power her body exudes. But when Ladon’s ruptured past consumes his mind, only Rysa holds the cure he needs.
But she’s out of his reach.
And she’s wasting away.
To make a bad situation worse, an old Fate family caught Rysa’s scent. Now she must find the answers to their problems—and recover her talisman—before a Roman Emperor finds his prey.
With the help of the newly-healed, newly-invincible Derek, Rysa plays a game of cat and mouse with the worst Fates and Burners on the planet. And maybe—just maybe—they will all come out alive.
To celebrate the coming release of “Fifth of Blood” at the end of this month, I’m answering questions about the universe, how I created it, and the characters. Today, I’m talking about Rysa’s ADHD.
Rysa, the heroine of the Fate ~Fire ~Shifter ~Dragon universe, is based on a real young woman with real Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The ADHD symptoms Rysa shows—the jumping from one topic to the next, the inability to sequence tasks or events, the internalizing of social difficulties—are all based on the experiences of one young woman who is particularly dear to me.
The female ADHD voice is uncommon in fiction. These aren’t the girls who save the world.
I thought it was time for that to change.
The barriers thrown up by ADHD often hide specific and wonderful talents. The young woman Rysa is based on has a way with languages, but finding her talent takes extra effort, both on her part, and on the part of the people around her.
Rysa, for her part, is the same way: She’s smart but information slips by. Too many things happen at once and she gets overwhelmed. And she most definitely internalizes all the disapproval heaped on her while growing up in a world that frowns on attention issues.
Breaching those barriers is Rysa’s story. It’s the character’s true story, under the world saving. And it’s why she’s the Fate ~Fire ~Shifter ~Dragon protagonist.
