The dragons have come and gone since the Pliocene epoch when Wooly Mammoths roamed with humans during the ice age. For many of the I and E generation in the Americas and parts of Europe, it was something to avoid being taken by them to their world. But many knew the stories they told, the things they saw and missed, and in this world of social media, the child coming home, reborn as a shifter. For 16-year-old Nathan that was his reality. For 11 years he's not only avoided getting grabbed but helped others avoid a similar fate. But a black dragon was watching him grabbing him only to lay low in the nearby woods, something they did to pick out who'd they take. It did that for 10 years, more than 3 times longer than usual. His actions and the amount of time he had avoided them made him a sort of celebrity in his town in the midwest. But one day that black dragon made its decision, he was to be her hatchling. When they're usually marked the child could turn to protective mode, running from home to prevent drawing attention to other children for the picking, and that's what he did, right to where they last landed. Luck, choice, a possible spell in those claws, whatever you may think doesn't matter. A black dragon never misses its mark. With agility unsurpassed by the other types they're almost impossible to avoid. But these dragons didn't breathe fire, were a threat, nor in any way the size of a 747 max. All they had that was unique from other creatures was a highly evolved brain with the intelligence of a human and a heart of platinum.
Demons and humans had been at war for centuries, vying for control of the world of Rathnos when the dragons appeared. They burned everything in their path as they quickly conquered continent after continent with their immense strength and magical power. The demons realized the strength difference and surrendered, but the humans fought on. A hero rose among them and slayed the Dragon King's mate. But the hero was overwhelmed and humanity's forces crumbled. Now, a dozen years later, dragons rule the world, with demons as middle-class and humans being the lowest of the low, slaves and sometimes food. An academy has been built, to train the young in their powers. This year, the Dragon King's son is attending, the Dragon Prince, Kanox. Follow Kanox, his demon best friend, and two human slaves as they progress through this academy and face danger after danger once graduating. ~~~~~ Notes: The dragons are shifters so they can take on human forms. Blood, death, swearing.
You'd think Ivan had a hard enough time because he was born with only one arm, but his mother wasn't in the hospital when he was born. Instead, she found herself in the middle of a cult, thankfully she had enough sense to let a dragon take her newborn, and the dragon took him to a hospital. Eventually, they found him a foster home, who cared for him well. The dragon that took him all those years ago never left his side. Whenever she could, she was by Ivan's side. However, in this world, she could make him a shifter. Ivan's foster mom understood that. However, she knew that one day, usually in a year's time, Ivan would return home after it happened. Ivan, however, seemed to have an interest in something that goes back to ancient Greece. Something that would more than likely affect those he met.
