A tale of a woman and her stardrake…
Kayla's parents had always told her that they would get her a stardrake when she was older…
They died and never did.
Now, on the verge of graduating from StarCorps Academy with her PhD, Kayla decides the time is right and volunteers for a service drake raising program.
It lasts one year.
At the end, she must return the stardrake so it can be trained and paired with an owner who needs it.
Expecting it to be all cuddles and cuteness, Kayla is unprepared when she is given Barnabus, a bundle of trouble. He turns her life upside down, putting her whole academic career in jeopardy.
Will she even last the year?
If she does, how can she give up something she has started to love?
Inspired by a true story, The Stardrake Effect, is an emotionally resonant coming of age tale stuffed with laughter, friendship, spaceships and heartbreak.
