Transcript of Dragon 2.0 Web Display
“I became the very air; I was full of stars. I was the soaring spaces between the spires of the cathedral, the solemn breath of chimneys, a whispered prayer upon the winter wind. I was silence,and I was music, one clear transcendent chord rising toward Heaven. I believed, then, that I would have risen bodily into the sky but for the anchor of his hand.”
(Hartman, 2012, p. 448)
“He did not know the truth of me, yet he had perceived something true about me that no one else had ever noticed. And in spite of that—or perhaps because of it—he believed me good, believed me worth taking seriously, and his belief, for one vertigi-nous moment, made me want to be better than I was.”
(Hartman, 2012, p. 257)
“He was impugning my virtue. I ought to have been offended, but for some reason the idea tickled me. That could be my next career: instrument of torture! Seducing prisoners, and then revealing my dragon scales! They would confess out of sheer horror.”
(Hartman, 2012, p. 163)
“We were all monsters and bastards, and we were all beautiful.”
(Hartman, 2012, p. 450)

The Dragon Diaries
From Deborah Cooke, the author of the Dragonfire novels.
Zoë Sorensson is basically normal, except for the fact that she's a dragon, and the only female dragon shapeshifter of her kind. But Zoë is at the bottom of the class when it comes to being Pyr and her powers are not manifesting, so she's sent to a Pyr boot camp.
Zoë quickly realizes that the Pyr are in danger and boot camp is a trap. The Mages want to eliminate all shifters and the Pyr are next in line-unless Zoë and her friends can work together and save their own kind.
