Dragonmarsh: This is a short story by Barbara Lieberman. I got a kick out of this story. It is about a spoiled little girl who has to go to an old
family estate with her mother as punishment for breaking the law. After learning some very interesting things about the estate and her family,
she has to decide if she wants to help a dragon trapped in a book.
Dragons of Pandryl: This is a prequel story by Raven Williams related to her realm jumpers series. I've read the first 3 books of her series, and loved this short story. Not only does it relate to the series, but it has a lot of depth for a short story. A dragon falls in love with a human girl and has to learn how to deal with not only prejudice against his kind, but how to take care of her and be with her. The story is complete and has no cliff hangers.
Of Dragons and Men: This is a prequel story by Guy Donovan related to his Dragon's Treasure Series. I have not read the series, so don't know how well it relates, but I found it interesting that the dragons are being actively hunted and are dying out because they are loners. A king has to try to raise a daughter that has a handicap, maybe something similar to autism? while a pregnant dragon tries to survive long enough to bring her young into the world. This story left me curious about the rest of the series.
A Dragon's Treasure: This is a short story by Ellie Lieberman. This story left me a little sad. It is about a baby dragon that hatches all alone, and doesn't understand what he is or what he is capable of. In his search for a place to belong he endures terrible treatment and abuse. He also finds a thief who teaches him a little about life.
Animus: This is a short story by Kindra Sowder. I found this one very interesting. It is about a dragon riding general that gets betrayed by her own troops. The dragon is a companion and part of the story, but not the focus of the story which makes it interesting to how the story develops. There are a couple of other species thrown in, and the story is complete but still leaves you wondering what happens next.
A Bucket of Fish: This is a short story by Jena Baxter. This story is about dragons and people living side by side, but not so comfortably. Dragons and people can bond, but once a person calls a dragon either they bond or the person is killed. This makes it a powerful commitment, but some people start to take the bond for granted and abuse their dragons. I know, who would think to do such a thing? crazy but it happens. Unfortunately, for the bonded dragon they don't have much choice once their bonded. This abuse leads to lots of problems, and some major consequences. This story is about a boy that befriends a dragon and grows up to love her, and what he is willing to do to be with her.
In all this is great collection of stories about dragons that while leaving you curious about the world's the authors created it does not leave you feeling like something was missing. All of the stories are well done with the story lines complete, and not chopped up. I usually do not enjoy short stories because I usually feel like pieces of the story are missing or cut out to make the story short, but with this collection that is not the case. Some of them could be fleshed out into novellas, but do well in their current form. There is some violence, no sexual content, and I recommend this for 13+. Most of the stories can be read in one to two days.
