Dragons of Esternes series
As the life of a slave goes, Kantees doesn't have it too bad. Being responsible for a racing dragon means her existence is more than just drudgery and fear, even if her life is at the whim of her masters and their rules.
As a runaway slave, Kantees isn't safe anywhere but the need to find out who'd pursuing her, and why, drives her back to her first master.
Free at last from those who harass her and hold her back, Kantees finally searches for her own people in the mountains of Esternes.
But what she finds brings her face-to-face with a power she can neither comprehend nor fight, and when it takes away her future everything seems lost.
As Kantees tries to build an army against her enemy, trouble strikes at her from every side, and it seems she's doing it to herself.
