I do want to know what's going to happen, but I'm going to have to think about it. I don't like to reward authors for this type of shenanigans. If there had been a short explanation at the beginning of the book I may not have bought it. Honestly I don't know.
In all fairness the story is well written, good characters, engaging. I may wait until all is written and get the boxed set, or however it gets packaged.
It is 1920. It looks like the real 1920, and feels almost like it too. But in Rose Palmer’s world, dragons are real. Well, were real. They are thought to have died out in the Mesozoic era, leaving only fossilized skeletons and stones with markings on them that are thought to have been caused by dragon fire. Rose wants to be a paleontologist so she can study dragons and try to unravel the mysteries surrounding them.
When she goes to visit Mr. Teedle, the curator of he dragon exhibit at the Museum of Natural History, he shows her the museum’s newest acquisition, twelve dragon eggs from the Dragon National Monument. Rose expects them to be fossils. But then she and Mr. Teedle and another visitor, a stranger, have a group vision of a dragon hatching. It seems to have originated from one of the dragon eggs.
After some confusion, they come to the conclusion that the egg wants Rose and the stranger to be its parents. There follows a couple of days of
agony as they decide whether they will and work on where they will keep he egg while it is waiting to hatch and try to work out how they will get the museum to allow them to have the egg.
The characters are really engaging, especially Virgil the unhatched baby dragon. I am looking forward to reading the next books in the series.
I love the premise of ancient eggs hatching.
I give Dragon's Egg five stars!

A large clutch of dragon’s eggs are found and are distributed around several museums.
Everyone believes they are fossils as of course dragons died out millions of years ago.
A couple of students come along to see the eggs and get adopted by an embryo who has been ‘resting’ in his egg since he his parents died. He is telepathic and identifies them as substitute parents for the ones he lost and thus restarts the process of hatching. Whenever they go away he screams so loud that everyone in the museum wing gets terrible headaches. So the students need to stay close.
A fun cosy novella with a new and different premise.
