Prairie Fire

By E. K. Johnston

As Owen and Siobhan begin their stint in the Oil Watch, they leave Trondheim behind and confront the ins and outs of military life.

The good: their backup team of firefighters, medics, and smiths will always have their back. The bad: the Canadian government (and some of Owen's superiors) may or may not want Owen dead. The ugly: you may think you've seen dragons, but no other dragon compares to the Chinook. The sequel to the critically acclaimed The Story of Owen.

  • With starred reviews from Booklist, Kirkus, and Publishers Weekly, the first Owen book made a huge impression. Sales are off to a strong start and Kate Johnston is well on her way to becoming a breakout star in the YA world.
  • Like the previous book, this one is funny and poignant, quirky and insightful all at once, with Siobhan's unique but relatable voice as its anchor.
