Alone, lost in a strange forest, Yksi, a half-dragon child, searches for a way home. But is there even a home to go back to? With fuzzy memories of a night of terror, her family gone and an insatiable hunger pushing her forward, she struggles to survive in a land where creatures of fables and nightmares lurk behind every corner. 

But who can she trust when the only one speaking her tongue is a voice that guides her deeper into the forbidden forest. And the only one who shows her kindness is a mortal enemy of her kind. All the while the untamed dragon inside her grows stronger, and every day that Yksi relies on her dragonling for survival pulls her further away from her humanity. 

Witness the birth of a reluctant hero in this epic tale of dragons and men. Set in a rich, high fantasy world where any skill can become magic this dark fantasy story will take you on an emotional journey through Faeriedawn. Both Yksi and her new found friend will have to grow up quicker than expected and fight for what they believe in if they hope to survive in this gripping coming of age story.

@bjpatt Ha ha ha, no dragons in the erotic romance :) Just the same world... :)
                              Vamps - I'll be starting Ep. 2 soon, the editor is still working on the first one...

@bjpatt Oh, and I don't have a diagram like this for the vampire one, but it would be larger than the dragons ;) I think I should go for some typing course or something ;)

@jcharker Wow.  That's insane.  Have you been working on this alone or with others?
bjpatt bjpatt Jun 17, 2013
@jcharker That's quite vast.  I can easily see it took a decade to come up with such ideas.  Now I want to see the series!  :)

@jcharker Ah.  Got it.  See, if I had my Kindle with me (it has my notes and highlights), I would have known that.  You present it fine.  Anyone who's actively reading your story and piecing together the hints would probably know that.

I love that she snaps on the bug in her moment of rage.  Very nice touch.
                              I'm gonna guess this occurs soon after volume I of Dragon Reborn.
                              Possible typos on pg. 1:
                              Starts inching ITS way to freedom
                              That thoughT distracts me
