The Dragon of Ynys
by Minerva Cerridwen
Genre: Clean LGBTQ Fantasy
Every time something goes missing from the village, Sir Violet makes his way to the dragon’s cave and negotiates the item’s return. It’s annoying, but at least the dragon is polite.
But when the dragon hoards a person, that’s a step too far. Sir Violet storms off to the mountainside to escort the baker home, only to find a more complex mystery—a quest that leads him far beyond the cave. Accompanied by the missing baker’s wife and the dragon himself, the dutiful village knight embarks on his greatest adventure yet.
The Dragon of Ynys is an inclusive fairy tale for all ages.

This was such a wonderful story. If you’re young at heart, you’ll really enjoy this story. Snap and Sir Violet were absolutely amazing. (Seriously, how can you not love a friendly dragon, and such a kind knight?) The characters were so diverse, and it was nice to see so much representation of the LGBTQIA+ community outside a romance. I would absolutely love to read more of their adventures! A refreshing, uplifting read, and I can’t recommend it enough.
