"A debut novel that retells Pride and Prejudice in a world where creatures are dragons, hobgoblins, lamias, and gryphons are commonplace, HEARTSTONE takes Austen's classic tale and turns it into something new, engaging, and imaginative"-- Provided by publisher. They say a Rider in possession of a good blade must be in want of a monster to slay-- and Merybourne Manor has plenty of monsters. Aliza Bentaine has already lost one sister to the invading gryphons. So when Lord Merybourne hires a band of Riders to hunt down the horde, Aliza is relieved her home will soon be safe again. She doesn't expect a clash of wills with dragonrider, Alastair Daired, nor the mystery that follows them from Merybourne Manor... something far more sinister than gryphons.
