The global war ended two hundred years ago, not with a bang, but with a whimper. Nations fought until resources were almost completely exhausted. By the time a cease-fire was called, the ability to return to the pre-war industrial era was nearly impossible. With the lack of resources, humanity declined to a quasi-medieval society of city states. Now 200 years later "Metalmancers" or those with the ability to control and shape metal have started to appear. With these Metalmancers and their abilities to salvage and possibly operate pre-war technology, forces have started to come into play to vie for control, once again sending this scarred planet into war. Mand and Val are two such Metalmancers who have been living on their own for the past several years. With new forces in play and old enemies on their trail, will they be able to lean on each other to survive this new emerging world? ** It's really hard to fly a dragon made of metal. They could of made a bull, a horse, or really any simple device that could haul a wedge-shaped plow, but someone insisted that they try and build a bloody dragon. That someone now had her hands wrapped around Mand's waist and was having the time of her life. "See, I told you this was a great idea," Val exclaimed. "We'll have that field done in no time!" "You're not the one trying to steer this thing," Mand returned. "Now be a good sister and lower the tail so we can get to work." Mand felt Val shift her weight and suddenly become very still as she began to concentrate. Inside the shell of the dragon, a complex system of gears began to whirr and rotate. The dragon's tail began to curve beneath the belly of the construct, until the wedge-shaped tip curved towards the ground. Mand had her work cut out for her as well. She focused her mind on pumping the dragon's wings to keep aloft. The descended tail made the whole operation twice as taxing as it was before. The tail clicked in place and Mand began their pass towards the field below. "Are you sure this will work?" she questioned her sister. "It's my butt too," Val pouted. "You should have more faith in my plan!" Mand brought the dragon closer and closer to the earth. She began to sweat as the ground inched closer. Finally, at the edge of the field, the tip of the tail sunk into the soft earth, plowing a furrow as the dragon swooped along. When the dragon reached the far end of the field, Mand pumped the wings to get them back in the air. It was only when she brought the dragon around for another pass that she realized how hard she was breathing. "See, I told you this would work!" Val shouted happily, kicking her legs out as they approached the field once again. Mand felt darkness overtake her.

"They are of a mighty beast. They are not such creatures that can be tamed - they must be eradicated or so will we." Although the words rang clear to her, she was not one to head such a warning. For centuries they have lived among us. Creatures sometimes as small as a wrist's girth to so gigantic as to be a mountain-eater. They can often devour animals or humans whole and out of their breath spurts fire. They are known by many a name: wrym, drake, wyvren, or most commonly draca. There are many who hunt these beasts for fame, glory, or simple protection. There are even more so who fear the draca. And yet still, there are others who have managed to tame and even ride the draca. These souls who have been granted such an impossible privilege are known as the Draca Ryders. Brünhild, a girl of but nineteen years, is the sole heir of her small village's only blacksmith. In addition, the hamlet in which she lives is one of three on the entire island of Stakhlijan. Despite the close community, Brünhild wishes not for a quaint life. Instead, she has dreams of becoming a draca ryder who serves directly under the king. Getting there, of course, will not be easy; especially not for someone such as her. However, the banishment of the Second Prince, the discovery of a draca egg long thought to be extinct, and war threats from a neighboring kingdom may just be the motivation Brünhild needs to become the heroine she always dreamed of. A story of adventure, war, and comedy with just a touch of romance, Draca Ryder is a story about being true to who you are no matter the circumstances. Contains mature content including but not limited to: violence and (possible) gore, crude and explicit language, some sexual content (?) Also available on Wattpad
