About Dragon

In the wake of a devastating encounter with an age-old terror awoken deep in a lost underground city, Kaelyn Scabaren emerges as the lone survivor, unearthing a hidden wellspring of sorcerous abilities as a Soka. In the scarred realms of Avengarde, where dragon swarms once decimated the fabled races of elves, dwarves, humans, and enigmatic Outcasts, many mysteries and dangers remain.

While Avengarde shudders beneath the onslaught of unnatural storms, a malevolent darkness grows in strength, fueled by centuries of festering vengeance. Now, it gathers an unstoppable force that makes the dragon swarms of the past mere drops in a fierce downpour.

Struggling to master his newfound powers, Kaelyn battles his inner demons, haunted by his inability to save his fallen cousins. In his journey, he encounters an assemblage of unlikely allies, each driven towards a common destination from different paths the fates have set them upon. As they confront ghosts from their pasts, nightmares become a reality.

But, an ancient and formidable dragon named Bas’agh’duhl awakes from his slumber, ready to bring about their destruction, resurrecting dragons and unleashing unfathomable devastation upon Avengarde once more. Will Kaelyn and his mismatched comrades stand against the encroaching doom, or will they succumb to the unfathomable tide of darkness that threatens to consume them all?

This is my first novel and, obviously, the first time asking for Beta Readers. Since I’m also a web designer, I thought I could put everything here to use as a central point. If you’ve been doing Beta Reading for a long time, forgive my newbie-ness. For everyone else interested, I’m asking for honest, constructive criticism, and it doesn’t have to be feedback on everything about the book.

To see if you have any interest in reading the whole novel, here is an intro and the first three chapters. If you like them, please come back to this page and fill out the form, and I’ll get you a pdf, epub, or hardcopy version of the novel. The general time commitment is 4-6 weeks for feedback if you can.

Much appreciation to all!
