Wyja, Senior Dragonkeeper of the Upper Abramshire Academy, tends to young dragons and keepers alike. Each group challenging, and exhausting, in their own way. Unwelcome change sets in when dragon birthrates drop to dangerous levels. No one knows why. Can Wyja solve the problem before it’s too late? An excerpt from The Last Dragonkeeper: The End of Dragonkind? “Is it true?” one of the other girls said. “About no more dragons?” Wyja wished she could sooth and reassure them, tell them things far out of their control would be all right. But only for a second. This was not the time for coddling young keepers far past such niceties. “Relas speaks truth,” Wyja said. “The dragon birth rate is dropping. We’re trying to figure out why. Anyone else heard rumors from home?” They all muttered, glanced at each other, and shook their heads. Only Relas and Leela stayed quiet. Wyja raised her eyebrows and held out one hand. Leela finally spoke. “My parents are farmers, down in the great flatlands. They’re afraid they won’t be able to trade without the dragons. For fish or wood or healing herbs, many of the things they need.” Wyja hoped this was a chance worth taking. Letting the situation get much worse was definitely too much to risk.

A wonderful read." —Mary Logue, author of the Claire Watkins mysteries"…impressive…ambitious…Mindy Mejia is a talent to watch." —Sheila O'Connor, author of Where No Gods Came and Sparrow Road A zookeeper fights to save the animal she loves, even as her own life crumbles around her… Meg Yancy knows she may be overly attached to Jata, the Komodo dragon that has been in her care since it arrived at the zoo from Indonesia. Jata brings the exotic to Meg’s Minnesotan life: an ancient, predatory history and stories of escaping to freedom. A species that became endangered soon after being discovered, Komodos have a legacy of independence, something that Meg understands all too well. Meg has always been better able to relate to reptiles than to people, from her estranged father to her live-in boyfriend to the veterinarian who is more concerned with his career than with the animals’ lives. Then one day, Meg makes an amazing discovery. Jata has produced viable eggs—without ever having had a mate. Faced with this rare phenomenon, Meg must now defend Jata’s hatchlings from the scientific, religious, and media forces that converge on the zoo to claim the miracle as their own. Finally forced to deal with the very people she has avoided for so long, Meg discovers that opening herself up comes with its own complications. And as she fights to save the animal she loves from the consequences of its own miracle, she must learn to accept that in nature, as in life, not everything can be controlled. Mindy Mejia’s gripping debut novel highlights the perils of captivity and the astonishing ways in which animals evolve.

When a train crash destroys a shipment of mysterious dinosaur bones that might be the source of dragon myths, something forgotten whispers from the past... Judith Mills is a scientist who discovered the bones in the remote North, and determined to save whatever might be left. Creek Morgan is a Native Indian railroad mechanic troubled by nightmares he doesn't understand, while Eva Reed is a grieving young woman whose husband lies comatose in a hospital bed.

In the last moments of a winter night, their lives are changed forever when the freight train carrying the dinosaur bones crashes in an isolated forest. But Creek's elderly great-grandmother remembers disturbing fragments of a Native Indian legend going back to the ancient days of the tribe, and cryptic clues written on an abandoned city apartment wall echo warnings few understand. For a tiny group of ordinary people, courage and compassion will be their only weapons against revenge, corruption and greed. For the Dragon's Keeper is coming, and the line between myth and reality is about to be wiped away forever...

The Traders have forgotten their promises, weary of the labor and expense of tending earthbound dragons who were hatched weak and deformed by a river turned toxic. If neglected, the creatures will rampage—or die—so it is decreed that they must move farther upriver toward Kelsingra, the mythical homeland whose location is locked deep within the dragons' uncertain ancestral memories. Thymara, an unschooled forest girl, and Alise, wife of an unloving and wealthy Trader, are among the disparate group entrusted with escorting the dragons to their new home.

Return to the world of the Liveships Traders and journey along the Rain Wild River in this standalone adventure from the author of the internationally acclaimed Farseer trilogy. Tintaglia the blue dragon has lost interest in the stunted dragons that emerged from the cocoons of Maulkin's Serpent Tangle. Dragons are fiercely practical about survival of the fittest, and now that she has produced her own batch of healthy hatching serpents Tintaglia no longer provides for the weak creatures abandoned near Trehaug, the main city of the Rain Wilds. The Rain Wild Council is as ruthless as Tintaglia: Deciding that the pack must be relocated they begin to recruit their least useful citizens to tend the beasts and escort them upriver to better hunting grounds. Because of their proximity to the acid waters and vapours of the Rain Wild River, Rain Wilders are born with deformities that shorten their life expectancy and must wed young and reproduce early if their family lines are to survive. Thymara is long past marriageable age. Having been born with too many abnormalities she should have been exposed as an infant, but her father chose to keep and raise her, against his wife's wishes. When Thymara's mother hears that the council is seeking tenders she grasps the chance to be rid of her wild, ugly daughter. But Thymara shows just as much enthusiasm at the prospect of adventure and grabs the opportunity to travel with the dragons. But the youngsters that will herd the dragons are as ignorant as the beasts themselves - both completely unaware that they are being sent into an exile rather than to a sanctuary.
