Spirit of Dragons

(2012)
The Dragon Wars
A novel by

 
Centuries ago, dragons roamed the land but they were not the foul, evil creatures of legend. They were masters of magic, intelligent, and kind. They taught man, they watched over the human communities living in the shadow of their lairs and protected them. But there were humans jealous of the dragon's mastery, they preached hate, they used stolen magic to kill. Before the dragons truly realized the threat against them, dragon slayers had nearly destroyed the breeding population. But the slayers also targeted the humans who called the dragon friend. The remaining dragons along with their human allies fled to find a safe haven.

Realizing the breeding population would never recover, the dragons combined their magic and set in place spells which could not be broken. Spells that allowed a soul of a dragon to bond with a human, allowing the dragon to experience life. They became the Kindred.

Lathan is a child of that magic. He bonded with his dragon spirit, Aro, when he was nine. The Kindred do not have surnames, when they bond with their dragon spirit, they take on the name of the dragon, a separate and unique personality, a brother, a kindred spirit.

Unfortunately, the human mind was never meant to know the vast knowledge of the dragon. Lathan Aro suffers sensory overload. The dragon's mastery of magic pushes Lathan closer to insanity every time he uses his magic. He is king of a dying people and vows to find the answers for their survival. In the year 1066, in England, on the same battlefield as William the Conqueror invades and defeats the Saxon King Harold, Lathan is fighting for his life to return his quest prize to his people, a lost spell book of ancient dragon magic.

Mirranda Thompson is from modern day Houston, Texas but she is alone in this world. Her parents were both murdered when she was a small child. Mirranda graduated with a degree in police sciences and has reached the rank of detective, hoping to solve their cold case. Mirranda's parents were very wealthy but growing up she discovered her father wrote his will in such a way that she would be provided for completely and constantly protected. She is a black belt in martial arts and an expert with a katana.

On October 14, 2011, Mirranda's 30th birthday, her father's will decrees that she receive a gift from him. It is a book, written in Latin, with a faint image of a dragon on the front and a pouch with six crystals of various colors. When she looks at the crystals they glow with their own light and she suddenly finds herself thrown backward in time, arriving where Lathan Aro fights a losing battle against the enemy of his people.

The Draoi are druids of black magic, they use the magical life-force of the Kindred to fuel their spells. Lathan Aro is at his limit. If he casts anything more, he will lose his sanity. But Mirranda's sudden arrival changes all that, giving Lathan the power he needs to defeat the Draoi and
allowing them both to escape.

Lathan does not understand the gifts Mirranda possess, how she can stop the pain of his cursed existence. He senses great magic within her but cannot define it. To his horror she claims she is from a future where magic doesn't exist, where dragons are only myth. Does this mean his quest will fail?
