Sunday Series Spotlight: The Dragon Born Academy by T.L. Christianson

Cracked Open

Dragons, bonded mates, and irreversible decisions.

After a car accident left my only parent – my father in the hospital, I was swept away to the Dragon Born Academy by my estranged grandmother.

If I had to be there, I’d be an observer of this place with its rituals and superstitions… after all, everyone’s made it clear I don’t belong.

But then it happened… and Ashe Carrick my impossibly irresistible bondmate happened.

Being Cracked Open changed everything… Who I thought I was, WHAT I thought I was…


The words alone bring to mind monsters and princesses in castles.

I am the princess and the monster they locked away. However, my story has no damsels in distress, waiting to be rescued.

It’s self-rescue time, and I’m done playing nice.

Over Easy

Exciting, angsty YA with dragons, a taboo romance and mystery!

As the school year continues, I’m digging more and more into my family history. It’s been shrouded in darkness for too long. But the more I poke into my mother’s shadowed past, the more I wonder if history is repeating itself.

Along my way, I’ve found an unlikely ally in fellow Prime Logan Brooks. And while my partially bonded mate, Ashe, is away serving in the Dragonborn Militia, Logan is here for me. He knows all the right things to do and say…

As my feelings develop for both, but I know I can’t lead the other on. I thought I was meant to be with Ashe… but maybe I have a choice after all.

I’m solving this Dragonborn puzzle one piece at a time. I just hope that it isn’t tearing me apart as I do.

Hard Boiled

A hidden world, secrets, love, betrayal… and dragons.

I was an unschooled world traveler until the you-know-what hit the fan.

Reality? Gone… yanked out from under me like a cheap Ikea rug.

Here are the doozies: Dragons exist in this whole other world! And bondmates exist. Yeah… I’m now bound to a heart-throb Prince to the Dragonborn—Ashe Carrick. Only, the gap is kind of thing for him.

When I end up at the Dragonborn base, Briony, Ashe is there! I’m trying to resist his gorgeous baby blues and focus on other more important things… like George! He’s the only one who has answers about my mom, her research, and the dragon realm. According to him, she might be alive! So this is my new obsession and I won’t stop until I get to the bottom of it all!

Hard Boiled is written in dual point of view. Fall into this emotional continuation of the Dragon Born Academy!

Frying Night

Portals, bondmates, and a dragon world.

I thought that my biggest problem was the unfinished bond between me and Ashe… but I was wrong.

We’ve done the impossible and crossed through a portal into the world of dragons – the same place where my mother’s been trapped for the past fifteen years.

With this lavender sky, orange sun, and a freaking planet hanging above us, it’s clear that we’re no longer on Earth. Our biggest problem is finding our way back… right?


If my mother who was an expert couldn’t find a way out of this place, who will we?

Sunny Side Up

Blood, grit, and tears…

When the group from Earth returns home from the dragon realm, each of their lives begins to unravel. While Ashe’s career goes up in smoke, Sydney’s kidnapped from under his nose.

Kept drugged in a prison cell, Sydney meets the Dragonborn that have been following her. Although they’re treating her well, she knows they’re after one thing – a Prime baby.

Amidst a growing rift among the Briony Dragonborn, Ashe sets out to find his bondmate.

But when tragedy strikes, will love be enough?

Or will Sydney and Ashe lose the bond they’ve fought so hard to build?
