About the Authors

G.R. MACALLISTER, author of the Five Queendoms series, also writes bestselling historical fiction under the name Greer Macallister.

A regular contributor to WRITER UNBOXED and the CHICAGO REVIEW OF BOOKS, she lives with her family in Washington, DC. SCORPICA is her epic fantasy debut.



Alex Green is a young girl in a world much like ours, except for its most seminal event: the Mass Dragoning of 1955, when hundreds of thousands of ordinary wives and mothers sprouted wings, scales, and talons; left a trail of fiery destruction in their path; and took to the skies. Was it their choice? What will become of those left behind? Why did Alex’s beloved aunt Marla transform but her mother did not? Alex doesn’t know. It’s taboo to speak of.
Forced into silence, Alex nevertheless must face the consequences of this astonishing event: a mother more protective than ever; an absentee father; the upsetting insistence that her aunt never even existed; and 
watching her beloved cousin Bea become dangerously obsessed with the forbidden.
