Draco’s Child is a young adult novel (ages 13+) published by Thistledown Press.
Varia lives with her family on the Kettle, a distant, mysterious planet that has become home to a group of humans fleeing a polluted, dying Earth. With half of their group missing and their crops failing, the settlers have no choice but to accept the help of Specto, the star child, a powerful entity who offers them survival–at a price.
Varia is troubled by the strange transformation afflicting the followers of the star child, but she doesn’t know what to do until she finds a baby dragon. With a fully-grown dragon, she will be able to find the lost settlers and chase away the star child. But only if she can keep it under control. Her quest is complicated when she too begins to change into something new…
Draco’s Child explores what it means to grow up in a hostile world where the only constant is change, and what you become depends on what you believe.
