Starlighter Cover

Here is the cover of Starlighter, the first in the four-book Dragons of Starlight series from Zondervan. Scheduled for release on April 1, 2010, it is designed for young adults. Although the story involves dragons, it's not related to any other series I have written.

Following is a description of the story. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Jason Masters has heard his older brother Adrian’s tales about dragons kidnapping humans. Supposedly, almost one hundred years ago, a dragon stole away several humans and enslaved them on its own planet. These Lost Ones, as Adrian called them, live terrible lives as cattle. Yet, the Underground Gateway, the portal to the dragon planet, still exists somewhere, and a secret society of the same name has long tried to find it so they can rescue the Lost Ones.

When Adrian leaves to find the portal, Jason takes his place as the Governor’s bodyguard. Although the government has tried to cover up the evidence, he learns that the legends are true, and after being accused of murder and learning that Adrian’s life is in danger, he has to conduct his own search for the portal, a journey filled with danger and intrigue.

Aided by a gifted young lady named Elyssa and an eccentric escapee from the dungeon named Tibalt, Jason ventures into the wilderness to locate Adrian and the Lost Ones. Yet, what he finds on the dragon planet proves to the biggest surprise of all. Koren, a lonely slave girl, is a powerful being called a Starlighter, the slaves' only hope for survival and rescue, though most refuse to believe that their ancestors ever came from another planet.

I have a couple of questions (some being contridictal
First of all, is Starlighter a dark fantasy? The cover makes it seem so.
Second, I love it, the cover is awsome, so is your books.
Third of all, is it a SCI-FI, the dragon has their own planet and the like?
Thanks and am eagerly wanting that book, (almost drewling at it, love you work emensily

Israle, I wouldn't call it dark fantasy. There are some dark elements, but nothing like horror.

I wouldn't call it Sci-Fi, because it really can't happen no matter how far technology advances. I think it's squarely in the fantasy category, though some might claim that it has sci-fi elements.

Thank you for the compliments!

Galadriel, yes, May of 2010.

Wow, looks good. I've read DIOM, Oracles of Fire, and Echoes from the Edge, so if this is as good as those books (I think it will be!) then I cannot wait to read it! Way to go, Mr. Davis!
