Dragon Race Blurb

Texas-sized adventure in a diverse sports novel for people who hate sports.


When her family’s dragon rescue falls on hard times, seventeen-year-old Cassidy Drake defies her father and enters the Great Texas Dragon Race to win the $250,000 prize. This legendary race is physically and mentally demanding, with racers’ deaths just part of the “fun.”

During the five grueling legs across the Lone Star State, Cassidy and her untested rescue dragon maneuver harrowing obstacles and solve complicated riddles to unlock each new leg. All the while, FireCorp, an energy corporation built on dragon exploitation, does its worst to destroy her chances of winning—they’ll even kill her if they must. With her skittish pistol of a dragon, winning (or just surviving) will be tough unless Cassidy can team up with her fellow competitors.

But who can she trust? Tentative alliances, a handsome rival, family secrets, and harsh wilderness will push Cassidy to her breaking point.

If she loses,

FireCorp will buy up her family’s rescue and exploit their dragons for profit.

But if she can win,

Cassidy will not only save her beloved wyverns and drakes, but she’ll gain a platform to denounce FireCorp for their atrocities against dragons worldwide.
