Hatchlings Curse by Helen Henderson
Coming November 26, 2014

Lord Branin Llewlyn is a dragshi, a human who can exchange bodies with a dragon. After millennia of waiting...and searching, Branin and his dragon counterpart, Llewlyn, have found their intended mates.

For the dragshi, the freedom of flight comes with a price. Now Branin has to find a cure for the childlessness of his kind. Cryptic references to mating flights add hope, but dark references about the deaths of suitors threaten not only his life, but the dreams of all dragon shifters.

Even if the curse is broken, another threatens Branin’s plans for a family. The firebrand leader of an outlaw band, Lady Broch of Ky'Port, means to take Anastasia’s place at Branin’s side. Broch refuses to share Branin—even if it means killing Anastasia. Which would mean Branin’s death also, for if Anastasia dies, so does he. For like the true dragons, the shifters mate for life in this world and the one beyond.
