She’s an outcast. No-one would ever believe her story—
—if she dare tell it anyway.
A young girl stumbles upon a wounded dragon in a cave while she’s hunting for small game.
Is the fate the dragon offers her better than what she has?
Amelia feels like a nobody in an unforgiving world. Her alcoholic father beats her. Her mother abandoned her. Each day, anxiety threatens to break her. She learned early on that if she was going to survive, she’d have to fend for herself.
When she finds the injured dragon, she’s convinced his flames will scorch her dead the moment she gets too close. She has to find a way to survive, yet again. Will she be able to do it on her own—or can she trust a dragon enough to help her escape her miserable life?
In a brilliant fantasy of romance and adventure, new author Megan Dayton weaves a splendid tale of betrayal, epic battles, and impossible love.

“A sweeping novel of love and loss, city and country, growing old and staying young. Waiting for Zoë is a thoughtful look at the ability of grown men and young women to confront change and absorb life’s most challenging moments,” writes Mark Stevens, author of Antler Dust: An Allison Coil Mystery. Waiting for Zoë is a genre-bending character driven, mainstream novel that explores a person’s ability to endure in the face of tragedy—and love. James R. Ament says, “It’s a love story, but it’s not a romance. There are underlying religious themes, but it’s not a philosophical book. There’s a little political commentary here and there, but it’s not about politics. It explores some very serious themes, but there are light moments and humor, too.” Set in Wyoming, Colorado, New York City, and Southern California, it makes the reader ask the hard question: who is in charge of creating ourselves? Ament says, “I had this story in mind about a young person who apparently has everything going for her, but then her life falls apart. The question is: Does she get it back? And if so, how?” And from writer Stephen Knapp, Evergreen Newspapers. “The characters are sharply defined and appealing, and the dialogue flows smoothly and moves the narrative along at a comfortable pace. The settings and situations are neither contrived nor trite, and the conflicts are at once challenging and accessible. In short, there’s nothing within Waiting for Zoë that marks its author as a newcomer to the literary stage,”(Reprinted with permission of Evergreen Newspapers).
