    One of my Favorite!

    Timothy Zahn is a writer that can pull you into a world that you never want to leave! Writing with just enough detail to allow you to visualize the worlds and their characters all on your own. This is a book for anyone who enjoys a good sci-fi story.

    In Dragon and Thief, Jack Morgan wants nothing more than to move on with his life and forget that he was ever a con man and thief. But, space and a virtual simulation of his late Uncle Virgil have other plans for him. While hiding out on a deserted planet because of a crime he didn't commit, Jack is audience to a battle that would change his life. As he walks through the wreckage of one of the fallen ships he finda a dragon.

    Draycos and his host are part of an advance team for their war torn peoples, on their way to a new home and a new life, or so they think. When their advance team arrives they are betrayed and attacked. Not only are they unsafe, Draycos learns that the evil his people sought to escape has followed them. Being the only survivor of the advance team for his people and very near death without a host Draycos sees a young human. Perhaps his only hope of survival.

    Draycos, Poet Warrior of the K'da, soon twines his fate with that of Jack Morgan, reformed thief. Draycos needs a host, Jack needs help, what they get is each other.

    Enjoy the story of two different beings as they start to unravel a plot that could destroy both of their worlds if they don't stop it.

    Dragon and Thief is the best

    If a dragon jumped at you and vanished into thin air. Jack Morgan has to keap him and help after he went onto his back. While at the same time runing from Braxton University security for a crime he did not commit. When he proves he did not commit the crime he gets in an even bigger pickle then ever thought he could. This is a wonderfull book full of adventure and fantisy. I would recomend for any one who like fanticy or adventure and needs a good laugh

    Way too much fun

    I bought this book because I`m a fan of Zahn`s work in the Star Wars universe. I didn`t realize it was a teen/children`s book until I read the back cover. While this may be a quick read for some, this book is a superbly enqoyable book that never seems to drag. I can`t wait to read the next book in this series. This book is worth checking out.

    fun young adult SF

    His parents died years ago and his only living relative Uncle Virgo recently passed away, leaving fourteen year old Jack Morgan by himself except for the virtual essence of his deceased guardian. Jack has been set up to take the fall for stolen valuable cargo. He is an easy frame, as he is guilty by association or in this case blood, as his late uncle was a known con man. Jack flees to a remote planet, but in the skies observes a fight with one of the combatant ships crashing near him. The only survivor of the wreck is the K¿da dragon Draycos. Jack might have felt he had plenty of troubles, but he soon learns what it¿s like to have the weight of the world on your back. Draycos exists either as a two-dimensional "tattoo" on his host¿s skin or as a three-dimensional dragon. His current host died during the attack and with no one else around, he persuades Jack to become his new host. This unlikely pairing of a warrior poet with a bungling teenage thief leads to adventures neither anticipated when they joined at the hip. Clearly targeting the young adult audience, though the older Norton readers will enjoy the novel, DRAGON AND THIEF is an exciting science fiction adventure story. Readers will appreciate the relationship between the intelligent experience dragon and the exuberant youth, which makes for a fine time for the audience. The worlds seem real and the joining seems strangely plausible requiring author Timothy Zahn to bare his back so his fans can see his tattoo. Harriet Klausner
