Harbinger (Dragonrider Legacy #2)
by Nicole Conway
Publication Date: August 14, 2018
Victory is written in the blood of the brave. As the armies of the Tibran Empire continue to march across Maldobar, a path of scorched destruction and despair is left in their wake. Even with the formidable princess, Jenna Farrow, leading the charge, the strength of the dragonriders is waning. Tibran victory appears inevitable—especially after Princess Jenna and Prince Aubren are taken hostage by the infamous Lord Argonox. Separated from her brother and tortured for information, Princess Jenna refuses to bend to the iron will of Argonox. But her strength and resolve may only last so long. Held prisoner in his dark tower, it would take a miracle to set her free—or perhaps a pair of demigods and their dragons. With revived dragonrider legend, Jaevid Broadfeather, at his side, Reigh must now make a choice: face the truth about the origin of his dark powers, or turn his back on world in need. But throwing off a lifetime of shame and self-doubt is not so easily done—especially when the cost of failure means the destruction of the world. The long-awaited hero has awakened. The ancient spirits are stirring. The dark goddess has chosen her champion. But is he ready to embrace that rite and become the HARBINGER Maldobar needs him to be?

PRINCESS JENNA FARROW – Character Discussion
I don’t usually hit it off with female narrators – reading or writing them. In fact, in the past, I have dutifully avoided writing from the perspective of a female narrator because I just find it uncomfortable. Why? I’m honestly not sure. But that wasn’t the case for Jenna. From the start, she was comfortable. She felt real. I really hope readers will come to like her as much as I did.
Jenna is strong. She’s fierce, brave, and takes her dragonrider oath very seriously. But she’s still a woman—so I had to find a way to convey her strength without compromising her humanity or her femininity. She’s a little rough around the edges because she’s spent most of her life surrounded by men after losing her mother at a young, formative age. She’s more comfortable in pants than skirts because she wants to dress for functionality not fashion. She struggles with anxiety and self-doubt. She’s in denial about falling in love everyone expects her to. She has a temper, but a deeply empathetic heart. She loves her family fiercely and would give anything for them. After getting to know her, for me, I began to agree more and more with Felix’s choice to make her queen over Aubren.
Originally from a small town in North Alabama, Nicole moves frequently due to her husband’s career as a pilot for the United States Air Force. She received a B.A. in English with a concentration in Classics from Auburn University, and will soon attend graduate school.
She has previously worked as a freelance and graphic artist for promotional companies, but has now embraced writing as a full-time occupation.
Nicole enjoys hiking, camping, shopping, cooking, and spending time with her family and friends. She also loves watching children’s movies and collecting books. She lives at home with her husband, two cats, and dog.
