The World of Albiyon

Welcome to the world of Albiyon - the setting for The Flames of Albiyon series by Jean Z. Menzies - ft. more info on the books and bonus content.

A century since the monarchy was overthrown, the country of Albiyon has become a haven for its citizens, the young scholar Adairia included. Raised within the Albiyan university’s walls she has dedicated her life to the pursuit of knowledge. Preferring to hole up in the library than seek adventure elsewhere, she has grown accustomed to her comfortable routine… until the day everything changes. When she unwittingly awakens a sleeping dragon’s egg, Adairia is thrust into unfamiliar territory. Never having dreamed of dragons she is forced to seek out guidance from the exhilarating Isla, last direct descendent of the royal family and companion to a century-old dragon. Together they must navigate the surprises to come; for beyond the prospect of a new-born dragon Albiyon is about to face a dangerous conspiracy that threatens the peace of their realm.


Flames of Albiyon is a story of friendship, love, and acceptance that celebrates queer identity.

Extract from An Introduction to Dragons

'There are four known species of dragon. The cthonic, pyratic, aetherial, and hydratic. Both cthonic and hydratic types are believed to be extinct as a result of interbreeding with the two more dominant genera. The cthonic seems to have died out first, with the last known male specimen mentioned in records dating back more than nine hundred years, but no more of its kind have been registered since the drake’s presumed death. No one is quite certain as to when the hydratic breed died out as they have notoriously been the most difficult species to keep track of, preferring to live deep underwater, away from most land-dwelling creatures. There are records of their kind existing as recently as four hundred years ago, however.'
