Note: Updates going forward are going to be titled Drakin: The Orphans of Haven Update!!!.
As most of my readers know, I finished writing Drakin’s sequel soon after the Story of Raiya came out. I’m presently on the 6th draft, having run it through a couple of editors and spelling/grammar check software. This is without a doubt the most ambitious book I’ve ever written. In the past, I’ve kept my plot lines straightforward and fairly simple. Now I have multiple characters with internal and external struggles and a couple divergent plotlines.
The title “Drakin: The Orphans of Haven” has been finalized and I’m happy to announce that the cover blurb is also complete:
“The nightmares never end for Radley Zall. After years of struggling for survival during the Red War, he finds himself deporting wayward dragons to the Exclusion Zone. The horrors of his past have left him a broken man, slowing killing himself in a bottle of whiskey. It’s a wearying existence that many former soldiers have been subject to since the war ended, but for Radley, that is all about to change.
Throughout his life, Radley’s hatred of dragons has been unmatched until one evening when a small one shows up on his doorstep. The pathetic creature is emaciated and begging for shelter.
For reasons Radley can’t explain, he feels compelled to help her. That uncharacteristic decision will change the course of his life forever. His fight to keep her safe lands him deep in a plot to reignite the Red War after ten years of peace and wipe out the few remaining dragons on Earth. The demons of his past have come back to haunt him. If he is unable to silence them, the fragile peace humanity spent thirty years fighting and dying for will be lost.”
We still don’t have a release date yet, but stay tuned. We are working on it! We have not started the cover or the legal parts of the book. As such, I don’t expect it out before the fall. So it may be a ways off, but be ready. The world Raiya and Jagger have helped create will soon be revealed!
