About this author

David L Dawson is the writer of The Fall and The Sky Is Falling, the first two parts of an explosive new dystopian quartet. He also wrote the novella series Snow White and Trip, as well as the upcoming middle grade Book of Fire trilogy. Upcoming projects include The Girl from Yesterday, a dystopian/scifi/vampire romance novel

The first part of my Sleeping Beauty inspired serial is out today. The Blood Dynasty Chronicles has forbidden love, intrigue, tragedy and vampires. It took me a long time to get it finished. I actually started this in June last year. Things got in the way, though; I wrote the sequel to The Fall and the Snow White series and went on my first holiday and a dozen other things.

The Fall - Chapter One (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 03, 2012 03:48AM
Description: Read the first chapter of The Fall, for anyone who loves The Hunger Games or just loves reading a good story. In a post apocalyptic world ravaged by the gods Ben Casper lives in a crumbling shopping mall called The Glass Palace with his family. He's just come back from a rites of passage into the brutal outside world that officially makes him an adult. Now he must get married and be trained to take over from his father as Mayor. Except he sees things differently now; he falls in love and makes a friend in a member of the Felum, a vicious human/cat hybrid tribe. He doesn't want responsibility. Only he might have it thrust upon him when he becomes embroiled in a conspiracy to kill the gods; a plot that could lead everyone he loves into mortal danger... This is the first volume of The God Slayers Trilogy
The Book of Fire (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Apr 02, 2012 04:15PM
Description: On a world where 99.9 per cent of the population have magic Cressida Widdershins often feels left out because she's about as magical as a turnip. But when a school trip presents her with a magic book she feels her time has come. Unfortunately dark forces are also after the book; shadow beings with vast powers and their assassin, a man who can turn people to stone. The phrase "be careful what you wish for" springs to mind... This is the first volume in the Cressida Widdershins series.
