I have a dangerous secret. I’m more than a human, but less than a dragon.
My name is Isobel Drake. I thought I was the only one of my kind, a freak pretending to be human. But when a dragon warrior unexpectedly appears to demand my help, I realize for the first time in my life that I’m not alone.
Like me, Tam appears human. Like me, he’s hiding his true nature. Too bad he’s made it clear that I’m a lesser creature. Yet he needs me because of my unique skills.
I was raised as human. I know my city inside and out. My brand-new business advertises that I can find anything, or anyone. He wants me to help him recover a stolen dragon egg. At first, I turn him down. Not only is he trouble, but he can’t even pay me! Then the arrogant jerk tries to blackmail me. Nice try, but no.
But then, I find out more about Tam’s quest, and I can’t turn him away.
There are others determined to find the egg: evil vampires and sinister mages who lust after all that a captive dragon can give them. The power to heal. The ability to walk in daylight. Boosted magical powers. They’ll resort to savage methods to keep what they’ve stolen. The fate of a helpless hatchling lies in my hands. I can’t turn my back on a vulnerable dragon child.
To save her, I’ll have to work closely with Tam. I just hope I don’t kill him first.
The Dragon Thief is the first novel in an thrilling new urban fantasy series set in a world where humans and dragons have been at war for thousands of years.
