Blazewrath Games Book Information
Lana Torres has always preferred dragons to people. In a few weeks, sixteen countries will compete in the Blazewrath World Cup, a tournament where dragons and their riders fight for glory in a dangerous relay. Lana longs to represent her native Puerto Rico in their first ever World Cup appearance. When Puerto Rico’s Runner—the only player without a dragon steed—is kicked off the team, she’s given the chance.
But when she discovers that a former Blazewrath superstar has teamed up with the Sire—a legendary dragon who’s cursed into human form—the safety of the Cup is jeopardized. They are burning down dragon sanctuaries around the world and refuse to stop unless the Cup gets cancelled. All Lana wanted was to represent her country. Now, to do that, she’ll have to navigate an international conspiracy that’s deadlier than her beloved sport.

When I found out I was creating content for Blazewrath Games, I became excited! I couldn’t wait to share my interpretation of Amparo Ortiz’s action-packed tale! Lana Torres is indeed a woman out to represent Puerto Rico in all its glory. Of course, nothing made me happier than representing Lara’s mission through this moodboard!
While I discovered a small number of photos to represent Lana’s journey, this doesn’t lessen the journey she takes in representing La Isla! I’m proud to say that Blazewrath Games is a powerful read! Everyone will enjoy this powerful Latinx book!
