The second of the Pit Dragon trilogy, (first is Dragon’s Blood, third, A Sending of Dragons) this science fiction novel takes place on another planet–Austar IV–where great dragons are fought in pits. This is the story of a young bond boy Jakkin and his girl/friend Akki who unwittingly become involved in a plot to blow up one of the great dragon pits. I wrote these books because I love dragons. Jakkin and Akki are based on my children who are now in their thirties. Austar is of course named after Australia, which was a penal colony for the British two hundred years ago. I hope in the future to write a fourth book–if I can come up with a plot! There have been British, Danish, German and Swedish editions of the book and the Science Fiction Book Club edition which was an omnibus of all three books.
See the Rambles review.
Available in the Harcourt paperback and the SFBook Club edition.
