Jack Morgan 13 has a dragon on his back – literally. The warrior K’da species are symbiotes, can only live six hours without their humanoid host. Draycos 30s is the sole survivor of the three ships destroyed scouting for their refugees, and Jack is the only possible choice. They may be an odd couple, but together they’re more than the sum of their parts. They are destined to travel far and wide, facing many perils – human, alien, and other, as they seek justice and safety – Jack for himself, and Draycos for his people.
I can still remember the first time I picked up a copy of this back in 2003, I wasn’t really a fan of science fiction at the time and I credit Dragon and Thief by Timothy Zahn as the reason why I really started reading the genre. I don’t think there was a single thing I didn’t love about this book.
It may be classified as YA, but I really don’t think it reads like it is. It’s full of some great characters and a fantastic plot that I was unable to put down once I had started. It’s been almost 13 years and this is still one of my favorite science fiction books of all time.
I was really excited to find out they were re-issuing it after so many years, hopefully, it will introduce a new generation to the series and one of the best authors in the genre. And while I liked the original cover, I think this new one is just beautiful. I’m really looking forward to picking up a copy of my own and I hope they keep releasing the rest of the books in the series.
