5 Out of 5 Stars 

Kathy Dawson Books is pleased to announce a rich medieval fantasy novel from an author whose work has been called “TRULY ORIGINAL . . . FANTASY AT ITS BEST.”

In the Time of Dragon Moon 
A perfectly crafted combination of medieval history, mythology, and fantasy, set on Wilde Island, featuring  Uma Quarteney - a half Euit and half English girl, who has never been fully accepted by her Euit tribe - and Jackrun Pendragon - a fiery dragonrider with dragon, fairy, and human blood.
Beware the dark moon time when love and murder intertwine


All Uma wants is to become a healer like her father and be accepted by her tribe. But when the mad queen abducts her and takes her north, Uma’s told she must use her healing skills to cure the aging infertile queen by Dragon Moon, or be burned at the stake. Uma soon learns the queen isn’t the only danger she’s up against. A hidden killer out for royal blood slays the royal heir. The murder is made to look like an accident, but Uma, and the king’s nephew Jackrun, sense the darker truth. Together, they must use their combined powers to outwit a secret plot to overthrow the Pendragon throne. But are they strong enough to overcome a murderer aided by prophecy and cloaked in magic?


Fallon's Review:

In The Time of the Dragon Moon is about a girl named Uma who has never really fit in among her people. Her mom was english and her tribe sees her as an outcast. The thing Uma wants more then anything is to be like her father and become a healer for her people. The problem is only men are healers among her tribe. So Uma dresses like a boy so while she apprentices maybe no one will notice.

Uma's father finds himself taken by the King and Uma goes with him. The Queen is in search for a healer who can help her conceive another heir to the throne. Soon Uma is discovered and catches the attention of the Prince who is not the nicest of sorts. She also catches the attention of Jackrun the Princes cousin. How will Uma stay alive and also give the Queen what she desires when her own father could not?


There are Dragons and Fey and a magical story that unites them all together. The prophecy tells of a heir to the throne who will have Fey, Dragon and Human blood. The Wilde Island was an enchanting place and Uma discovers who she is in the time she spends there.


Ok now for how I felt. In the Time of the Dragon Moon was my first book I have read in Janet Lee Carey's series and this was everything I wanted and so much more. I love this book and will be buying the rest of the series to read. I knew this was a standalone built off the world, so I had to have it as soon as I saw this beautiful cover with the Dragon on it. Carey's writing is enchanting and magical and you will want to devour every word. I was taken along on this fast paced adventure and left fangirling when it was over. This is a must read!

In the Time of Dragon Moon -- a tale of Love Magic and Murder

Praise for Janet Lee Carey’s new Fantasy

“The author’s world-building is detailed and fascinating, and Uma is a strong, admirable heroine. This is a must-purchase for libraries owning the earlier installments and a great choice for where teen fantasy is popular.” –School Library Journal 

“Humans, dragons and fey coexist on Wilde Island, but this uneasy peace masks a simmering, mutual distrust that surfaces after the English army abducts an Euit healer and his daughter to cure the aging queen's infertility—failure is not an option.” – Kirkus Review

~In the Time of Dragon Moon is a story of courage and romance that readers will not soon forget. While Uma’s struggle to help the queen and save her people is intriguing, the depth of her character reaches much further, exploring issues of race, gender, and identity. The politics of Pendragon Castle and Wilde Island offer gripping mystery and adventure, while Uma’s relationship with Jackrun—and even her interactions with her father’s dragon, Vazan—create a rich and insightful protagonist. The text will be a sure favorite of fans of high fantasy. —Meghann Meeusen. VOYA review


Praise for first two books of the Wilde Island trilogy; Dragon’s Keep and Dragonswood

~ALA Best Book for Young Adults
 “A remarkable achievement.”  –Lloyd Alexander, author of the Newbery Medal winner The High King

« “Nonstop action may keep readers glued to this page-turner, but strong writing and character development are what will make it linger.” –School Library Journal, starred review

« “Stunning, lyrical prose.” –Booklist, starred review
« “Painful, cathartic and cautiously hopeful; a fairy tale for those who have given up on believing in them, but still yearn for happily ever after.” Kirkus starred review

« “The political intrigue, mythology of Merlin, and romances. . . will have readers racing toward the end and then going back to savor the events more slowly.” – SLJ, starred review


About Janet
Janet Lee Carey grew up in the bay area under towering redwoods that whispered secrets in the wind. When she was a child she dreamed of becoming a mermaid (this never happened).She also dreamed of becoming a published writer (this did happen after many years of rejection). She is now an award-winning author of nine novels for children and teens. Her Wilde Island Chronicles are ALA Best Books for Young Adults. She won the 2005 Mark Twain Award and was finalist for the Washington State Book Award. Janet links each new book with a charitable organization empowering youth to read and reach out. She tours the U.S. and abroad presenting at schools, book festivals and conferences for writers, teachers, and librarians. Janet and her family live near Seattle by a lake where rising morning mist forms into the shape of dragons. She writes daily with her imperious cat, Uke, seated on her lap. Uke is jealous of the keyboard. If Janet truly understood her place in the world, she would reserve her fingers for the sole purpose of scratching behind Uke’s ear, but humans are very hard to train.
