Dragons! These two tales are about two very different dragons, one fiery with fury, one quiet in her passing.
HEART OF ICE by Anna Madden is set in a secondary world and is about a dragon of the water who is in pain after her hatchling has been murdered. This is her path to vengeance, filled with a fury that can not be contained. Published in Zooscape.
AND THE RED DRAGON PASSES by Emily Randolph-Epstein has a contemporary setting and is about the passing of an old dragon and the need for a human who loved her to sing her soul beyond that she might not remain stuck to this physical world. The story goes deeper, dealing with the main character’s view of who she is and her attachment to the dragon who always saw her real self. Published in Zooscape.
