Smoke Eaters is an amazing mix of adventure, fantasy, and science-fiction. Grigsby is an electrifying new voice sounding out over the wraith-haunted land." - John Hornor 

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.

                       DRAGONS! Firefighters v dragons! It's a dream come true!
Written in first person POV, Smoke Eaters follows firefighter Cole Brannigan, who's about to retire from the regular fire service when he learns he can breathe dragon smoke and is forcibly recruited into the Smoke Eaters, the elite dragon-fighting unit. There he returns to the level of a rookie, having to learn everything again from scratch.
The dragons are excellent, but the wraiths really stole the show for me - genuinely creepy and more than a little terrifying. Smoke Eaters mixes human betrayal and greed with a worldwide plague of giant scalies with a penchant for human flesh.
Fun, exciting, heart-warming, firefighters get to be the heroes we all know they are as they battle dragons!
