It’s been twelve seasons since Elias Hawkes and Annie Tolen were married. Makala Hawkes has retired and Elias has assumed the title of StarHawke Tycho. While daughters Emma and Olivia have brought a new level of happiness and fulfillment into their lives, although it will be short-lived, as they secretly prepare for the birth of their son, who, as the legends declare, will bring about the Return of the Great Dragon.
The Second DragonHawk War has moved underground. The StarHawke Tycho and his Hawkkur Legion continue to seek out the Dragon Hunters wherever they can find them. While the Trade remains unwilling to believe the old legends of the Star Empire are being fulfilled, DragonHawks from all over the Star Trader Galaxy are making their way to the Tycho Trade Station, seeking the protection of the Tycho Drakkon as they prepare for the Return of the Great Dragon.
The StarHawke Tycho knows the path forward will not be easy. He has prepared his Hawkkur Legion as best as he can. His fleet has the most modern starships and his troops are the best trained and best equipped fighting force in the galaxy, a mighty army of fanatical warriors filled with a renewed purpose as they await the birth of StarHawke Tycho’s son, reverently referring to him as the Great Dragon.
As the tension within the Star Trader Galaxy reaches a dangerous level, the StarHawke Tycho steps forward in an attempt to broker peace with the Major Families, the Planet Corps, and the Frontier Council. But the peace is shattered by an event that threatens to truly rip the Star Traders apart once and for all. Will it be enough to alter the course of history? Or is the Return of the Great Dragon inevitable?

About the Author
I retired from the U.S. Navy in 1992 as a Senior Chief Machinist Mate, MMCS(SS). Since then I have been working in the training and development field while I work on my writing. I was born in Houston, Texas, but grew up in Baytown, just down the road. I graduated from Ross S. Sterling High School in 1971. As soon as I could I joined the Navy, retiring 21 years later. I was assigned to the Machinery Division, Generator Gang on USS Forrestall, CVA-59, Auxiliary Division on USS Detroit, AOE-4, where I also qualified as Machinist Mate of the Watch in the Aft Engineroom. I was a Company Commander at RTC Orlando, Fl., leading six companies of recruits through Navy Boot Camp before volunteering for submarine duty in 1981. I served as Auxiliary Division Chief on the USS John Adams, SSBN-620 (Gold) out of Charleston, SC; a Ship Control Instructor and a member of the Curriculum and Instructional Standards Office at the TRIDENT Training Facility at the Bangor Submarine Base, WA; and as the Auxiliary Division Chief and Maintenance Coordinator on the USS Aspro, SSN-648, in Pearl Harbor, HI until we retired in 1992. My wife Cindy, our three sons David, Will, and James, and I moved back to the Houston area after I retired. We wanted the boys, who grew up in Navy towns - Norfolk, Orlando, Charleston, Bremerton, and Pearl Harbor, to have an opportunity to learn about our families. So we moved back into the middle of them! I started by “civilian” career as an Instructional Designer and Training Developer in the oil and gas industry where I am still employed. At least until I sell enough books... As for the writing, I’ve been writing the DragonHawk Saga for some time now, albiet in bits and pieces from writing endeavours that were primarily designed to entertain myself during long underway times. There’s ten main stories in the Saga, some of them are already partially written. I hope you enjoy them!
