Dragonstone Excerpt


     “Great. First royal dragon egg stolen from Chalvaren in ten thousand years and the damn thing’s already hatched.” Kort Elias grimaced and stared at the remnants of the Aurora eggshell. When he crouched down and touched the enormous object—he could have easily crawled inside—it crumbled to dust in his hands. “Worse, it’s been at least a day, maybe two.”

     A thieving mercenary had brought the egg here to this planet of humans, one dimension hop away from Chalvaren, and Kort had required a wizard’s help to teleport in pursuit. The queen his mother forbade him to give chase, but when Kort discovered the double-crosser took the egg from the royal hatchery, Queen Elissabet’s edict paled before the need to recover the dragonlet. Also, ignoring his mother’s wishes was a lifelong sport at which Kort particularly excelled.

     He picked up three black dragon scales, smelled them, manipulated them in his fingers then held the fragile scales up to the sunlight: they were translucent, iridescent…baby dragon scales. “Where’d you go little one?”

  1. I think I wanted to hug Kort when I read that last line “Where’d you go little one?” That is just such an endearing comment for a man to say (although I do wonder how quickly baby dragon’s grow after 2 days?) . Great story.

  2. “ignoring his mother’s wishes was a lifelong sport at which Kort particularly excelled.” Love that line! And the descriptions of the eggshell and dragon scales are very vivid.

    1. Thanks, PT. Kort is such an interesting guy. He loves his mother so much, but they’re like oil and water.
      Watching them navigate their way through The Kingdom of Chalvaren, in Dragonstone, and in Chalvaren Rising has been quite an eye-opener.

    1. Thanks so much Aurora. Great that you understand the conflict, and that your heart is melting for the dragonlet. He really is a special character. I’m glad everyone is keying in on him.
