Isle of Dragons
by C. Greenwood
I was there the day the Sheltering Stone fell. The day an ancient curse was unleashed and the Ninth Isle, the final refuge of dragons, was swallowed up by the angry ocean. For centuries my people, the winged dragonkind, have protected the dragons, bonding with them and sharing the skies together. Now both races face extinction.
I made it happen. I meddled with the magic that doomed my home island. And now that magic consumes me. But it isn’t too late. If I can learn to control the power that has invaded me I might survive long enough to find the lost mountain that legend says can restore the legacy of my people. But greedy pirates and cruel Gold Ship Voyagers bar my way. And my only ally on this desperate quest is a beast some call the mad dragon—an eater of men. Can I bend both the dragon and my newfound powers to my will before time runs out? Or will the last hope of dragons, the memory of a fierce race, die with me?
