Secrets of the Legend Chaser
Here's the summary:
Nothing is ever as it seems when you're chasing a legend.
Davi is a boy with a unique goal. Centuries ago, dragons nearly went extinct. Now he's taken it upon himself to bring them back. When he overhears talk of a secret hoard of eggs, a legend passed down from dragon to hatchling since their retreat, of course he's going to search for it. And he's taking the peasant girl Ayin, the street thief Char, and the young dragon Spark along with him.
Miles away, a lonely king has finally found his son, the prince who went missing five years ago. Or has he? The shy boy can't recall being a prince, and he's certainly not cut out for the job.
Davi soon finds out that chasing after a legend isn't as epic as it sounds. He isn't the only one who wants the eggs, and not all the remaining dragons are accepting of the three humans. A responsibility he's been avoiding for years is now coming back to haunt him. Everything seems to be falling apart, for both him and the king...
The last thing Davi wants is to go back to who he used to be. But as the tension mounts, he doesn't seem to have a choice.
Right now my word count is close to 30,000. My goal is about 75,000, which is just a bit shorter than the first Harry Potter book. If anybody's interested, the songs Prodigal by OneRepublic and Syndicate by The Fray almost seem like they were written for this story.
Besides, who doesn't want to read a book where a street thief fights a dragon with frozen biscuits?
