To all of the people commenting about NG Soldiers wearing fleece indoors at the Capitol...

Please show me on this doll where the mean 1SG touched you.

Seriously, these people are sleeping on a marble floors in 30 degree weather. I know its enjoyable to make fun of the Guard, but does it really trigger some of you so much? Almost seems like you are jealous of them for having leaders that don't micromanage everything. Please go back to commenting on USAWTFM, or more likely ranting at the VFW, about how your Army career was the hardest.

[OT] Two years ago I responded to a prompt β€œYou're a powerful dragon that lived next to a small kingdom. ... As the kingdom fell to invaders, a dying soldier approaches you with the infant princess, begging you to take care of her. Today, the Dragon’s Scion book 1, Dragonflame, is a published novel!

Hello everyone!

To repeat what the title said, (and get the full prompt, since it wouldn’t quite fit), two years ago I responded to this prompt:

[WP] You're a powerful dragon that lived next to a small kingdom. For centuries you ignored humanity and lived alone in a cave, and the humans also avoided you. As the kingdom fell to invaders, a dying soldier approaches you with the infant princess, begging you to take care of her

Well, I took that idea and decided the β€œinvaders” weren’t of the β€œAcross the mountain” kind and instead were the β€œfrom another world time,” and thus was born The Dragon’s Scion, a trilogy of books dealing with the the dragon-raised and empowered princess’s war against the alien invaders. Book one, Dragonflame, is out now, with more to follow in the coming months! Read the blurb below!

---

Tythel thought growing up under the wings of the last dragon, Karjon the Magnificent, would be the most unusual part of her life. It was only the beginning.

Finally, she’s come of age to begin her transformation into a half dragon. But just as the ritual completes, a steel ship bursts from the clouds, killing the dragon and tearing her world asunder.

The attack leaves Tythel alone and on the run from the alien invaders. The same ones that conquered her world and killed her parents sixteen years ago. The rightful heir to the throne and the last draconic being, Tythel must use every tool at her disposal to survive and teach the aliens a lesson forged in flame.

They should have let sleeping dragons lie.

Dragonflame is an epic science-fantasy adventure.

FAQ

Audiobook/Print Copy?

Print Copy is coming soon. For audiobook, nothing yet announced, but I’ll update if there is one!

Is this science fiction or fantasy?

Both, but in a different direction. Most science fantasy deals with science fiction tech and space wizards, and while I love me my space wizards, this goes the other way - the technology is powered by magic, the aliens use their own magic that isn’t just Sufficiently Advanced Technology, and the entire story takes place on a single fantasy world that the aliens invaded.

Length?

Dragonflame clocks in at just about 95k words, which makes it about 300 pages in print.

Elves and Dwarves?

Not exactly. There are the Sylvani and the Underfolk. Sylvani are woods-dwelling people, but they also ha
