Dragons in the Starsby Jeffrey A. Carver
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Dragons in space? A preposterous legend. But when star pilot Jael defies an abusive ship's master and rigs "the mountain route" through the hyperdimensional Flux, the dragons indeed appear--and challenge her to duel. If she escapes, she would be wise never to return. But the currents of the Flux are fickle, and when fate steers her this way again, she finds Highwing the dragon under sentence of death for the kindness he showed her. Only Jael can intervene--and so she must, for the sake of one who risked his life to save hers.
A genre-bending novel of the Star Rigger Universe, from the Nebula-nominated author of Eternity's End and The Chaos Chronicles.
Original print publication by Tor Books. Also available in Dragon Space: A Star Rigger Omnibus.

Dragons in the Stars is a wonderful romp throught the realms of science fiction and fantasy. A must read for any dragon lover. beautifly blended from the best parts of sci-fi and fantasy. One of the few books to make me cry. Claws at your heart and tears it to pieces.
I purchased this book accidentally. I'm not a fan of dragon tales. This story started out pretty good but headed downhill before the halfway point. The main character, Jael, had way too much teenage angst. Not sure it added anything to the tale. It was not realistic that she would agree to try a device offered by a strange male right after the tramatic similar situation. All the description of the flux travel got very old about hafway thru.
