The Dragon Eater

The Tharassas Cycle: Book One

J. Scott Coatsworth

Raven’s a thief who just swallowed a dragon. A small one, but still …

Now he’s growing scales, the local fauna is acting strangely, and his world is shaking itself to pieces. And his familias, Spin, is no help at all.

His best friend Aik has been pining for him for years, and things are coming to a head. A guardsman and a thief? That would be &ellip; messy. And there’s also Aik’s judgmental ex Silya, who hates Raven and is facing a magical coming-of-age problem of her own.

The unlikely trio must deal with strange beasts, alien artifacts, and a sentient silver sphere. If they don’t figure out what’s happening to Raven and the world around them, it might be the end of everything.

When events spin out of control with world-ending consequences, what’s a thief to do?

J. Scott Coatsworth

J. Scott Coatsworth writes stories that subvert expectations, that seek to transform traditional science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary worlds into something new and unexpected. His writing, whether romance or genre fiction (or a little bit of both), brings a queer energy to his stories, infusing them with love, beauty and power and making them soar. He imagines a world that could be and, in the process, maybe changes the world that is, just a little.

A Rainbow Award-winning author, Scott’s debut novel, Skythane, received two awards and an honorable mention. With his husband, Mark, he runs Queer Sci Fi, QueeRomance Ink, Liminal Fiction and Other Worlds Ink. Scott is also the committee chair for the Indie Authors Committee at the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA).
