About the Author
Amparo Ortiz was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and currently lives on the island's northeastern coast. Her short story comic, "What Remains in The Dark," appears in the Eisner Award-winning anthology Puerto Rico Strong (Lion Forge, 2018), and SAVING CHUPIE, her middle grade graphic novel, comes out with HarperCollins in Winter 2022. She holds an M.A. in English and a B.A. in Psychology from the UPR's Río Piedras campus. When she's not teaching ESL to her college students, she's teaching herself Korean, devouring as much young adult fiction as she can, and writing about Latinx characters in worlds both contemporary and fantastical.
Reviews

"The best way to get nerds like me invested in sports is to add dragons, and that is something Blazewrath Games does beautifully. Featuring a heart-pounding, inventive competition and a compelling, global conspiracy, Ortiz knocks it out of the park with this debut."
-Rachel Strolle, Teen Services Coordinator, Glenside Illinois Public Library District

"Blazewrath Games lingered behind my eyelids in cinematic flashes: Witches and wizards! Dragons! Life and death stakes! Ortiz delivers it all with dazzling imagery and a heroine who wins the gold cup for personality and voice. This is an incredible debut and marks Amparo Ortiz as an author to watch in the YA arena. "
- Karuna Riazi, author of The Gauntlet and The Battle

"Rich in magic, history, and ride-or-die friendships, Ortiz's debut blazes into dragon canon bringing with it complex identities, a love for Puerto Rico, and fiery Sol de Noche dragons! I'm excited to see what Ortiz does next!"
-Mia Garcia, author of The Resolutions

*"An intriguing take on identity that will speak perfectly to both fantasy fans and realistic readers; recommended for any library."
- BOOKLIST, starred review

"In a nonstop, dragon-roaring adventure, this mash-up of magical realism and coming-of-age story will keep readers enthralled until the last page."
- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"Part coming-of-age, part magical adventure, dragon fans are sure to enjoy this fast-paced and inclusive book."
