|A BIOTECH RACE AGAINST TIME TO DEVELOP MILITARY-GRADE DRAGONS. (Sequel to Domesticating Dragons)
Genetic engineer Noah Parker has at last landed the job he’s long coveted: director of dragon design for the Build-A-Dragon Company. With a combination of genetic engineering and a cryptic device known as the Redwood Codex, he and his team can produce living, breathing dragons made-to-order. But sales of dragons have plummeted, and the Build-A-Dragon Company will have to find new revenue streams if it hopes to stay in business.
A contract to develop dragons for the U.S. military promises a much-needed lifeline. Yet the specs are more challenging than anything Noah has ever designed. Worse, he learns that a shadow company headed by former CEO Robert Greaves has stolen the dragon-making technology to make a competing bid. Noah’s dragons will face off against those of his old adversary. It’s a head-to-head design competition, with the ethical future of domesticated dragons hanging in the balance.
Full of thrilling invention and discovery and show-stealing dragons, this one is for every reader who’s ever dreamed of riding or at least training their very own winged beast.
Praise for Domesticating Dragons
A Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Book of 2021
With characteristic verve, Koboldt contrasts the playful adventure plot with the eerily dystopian setting and a searing examination of corporate greed and ambition. Fans of inventive speculative fiction are sure to be pleased.
A fun read, with an engaging cast of characters, not the least of which, unsurprisingly, are the dragons.
–Ernest Lilley, Amazing Stories
Koboldt does a fantastic job… a fantastic, and definitely different, follow-up to his debut trilogy. I’ll take more of this, please!
