Prepare to be entranced by this multi-layered, feisty story - a masterpiece of world-building on a complex and engaging scale.
Three women - Ali, Merindah, and Dee - and their three dragons live on different worlds. Each world is imperilled, and each woman can act to stave off the danger, but only at enormous cost to herself. Add to this the tiny but rather important fact that they all share the one soul, and you begin to realise the enormity of the challenge ahead of them. As in the best of

This is a GEM! Patton's world building skills are incredible and her vision of the characters and their lives is amazing. The story is deep and intense and sets the stage so well for the coming novels. It pulls you in and takes you to not just one world, but several. We are introduced to three women who are so much more than they seem, and the connection they share that has such depth. I'll be watching for more from this author. Well done!

I highly recommend the high-magic fantasy Ochre Dragon. It's immersive escapism for grown-ups.

The setting is a magical universe full of worlds and facing a future cataclysm of destruction or rebirth. The individual worlds we get a glimpse of are dying. The surviving humans are quietly desperate, fighting to survive on the limited resources remaining. Ali lives in a domed city, sealed off from a poisoned world by a totalitarian authority. Merindah lives in the upper caste of a world where hope

My favourite books are intelligent and entertaining, with complex characters, fantastic settings and gripping storylines. Ochre Dragon ticked off all those requirements and more.
Patton has created a delightful cast of complex mostly female characters who are not always who they seem to be. The principle characters Merindah, Ali and Dee live in different places, and maybe even different worlds, yet they are inextricably linked through a beautifully developed mythology concerning the fate
