Author Vanessa Lanang, who makes her home with her family in Los Angeles, California, has created the young adult fantasy book ‘Fireheart,’ a coming-of-age story geared towards readers aged 12-17. She tells the story of Kaliyah, who is sworn to slay the dragon that took her mother’s life. But, even with the skills of generations of slayers coursing through her veins, she’s not prepared for Ryu, the one boy who can make her question everything she believes. When the Dragon Akademie orders an unwarranted execution of two slayers, Kaliyah is shocked by the revelation of their corrupt rule. Seeking vengeance for her mother, she forges an alliance with Ryu. With dangerous lies uncovered at every turn, Kaliyah and Ryu’s worlds converge, stoking the flames between them. But one dark secret they both share could rip them apart…if it doesn’t destroy Kaliyah first.

‘Fireheart’ is currently available on Barnes & Noble, Bookshop, Kobo, and also Amazon at
