When dragons rise from the earth, firefighters are humanity’s last line of defence, in this wild near-future fantasy.

Firefighter Cole Brannigan is on the verge of retirement after 30 years on the job, and a decade fighting dragons. But during his final fire call, he discovers he’s immune to dragon smoke. It’s such a rare power that he’s immediately conscripted into the elite dragon-fighting force known as the Smoke Eaters.  Retirement cancelled, Brannigan is re-assigned as a lowly rookie, chafing under his superiors. So when he discovers a plot to take over the city’s government, he takes matters into his own hands. With hundreds of innocent civilians in the crosshairs, it’s up to Brannigan and his fellow Smoke Eaters to repel the dragon menace.

Praise for this book

"I love dragon stories in which the dragons are real monsters, laying waste to everything around them; and I love novels with protagonists who aren’t callow young adults learning that they’re chosen ones. Smoke Eaters has terrific dragons, and a hero with some miles and experience on him, plus great writing and a wicked sense of humor. I flew through it." - Alex Bledsoe

"I’ve been waiting for a book like this for years. Original, exciting, Smoke Eaters is a red-hot page-turner." - Adam Christopher

"An ingenious premise that Grigsby delivers on with intelligence and style. Smoke Eaters is a treat!" - Jason M Hough

"Profane and exhilarating, filled with unforgettable characters and scorching action." - John Hornor Jacobs

"Smoke Eaters is a thrilling, exciting, funny and strangely heart-warming book, and Grigsby’s experience as a firefighter shines through on every page, lending grit and realism to this rollicking ride of a tale in which firefighters become dragon-slayers. It’s exactly as bonkers – and as brilliant – as you’d expect and I look forward to more from this author." - Anna Stephens

"This red-hot debut will torch off all your skin and leave you in the burn ward. The skin grafts won’t take, and you’ll die of a massive infection after an agonizing month of pain unlike anything you can imagine. Also dragons." - Patrick S Tomlinson

"This smoking debut is a shot of adrenaline to the urban fantasy genre. Grigsby’s knowledge of firefighting combined with hot dragon action and blistering humor create an irresistible romp of a read." - Jaye Wells
