Heir To The Dragon King. It is undisputed that dragons are extinct, except for strange animals like Komodo dragons and other creatures with odd features. Supposedly, they never existed. Suppose, just suppose, that they did exist, once upon a time. This is the story of what might have been the last interaction between people and dragons. It is also the story of loving couples, kings, queens, and disputes between brothers over a throne and a beautiful duke's daughter. It speaks of the enduring power of love and forgiveness and their power to heal. I wanted to provide an alternative to some of the stereotypes of dragons, and of people, too. If you want to let your imagination explore these possibilities, please read more!
