Excerpt from “Steampunk New Year” by Jessica Lucci:
Fire-breathing reptiles with iridescent wings wider than the Erie Canal swooped through misty clouds above mountain trails. These ancient creatures thrived and survived in the quiet isolation of introversion. Peacefully they ate toasted grape vines and coffee beans and drank heavily from steamy ashy rivers. The natural fuel for their inner fire kept them strong and content.
Rose Hillway of clan Draca Fitzmaura stretched her long talons and scratched equations into black sand. The increased activity of men and their airships had not gone unnoticed by her. She was unlike most of her kind: curious rather than content, forward-thinking rather than history relying. She dreamed and sought answers. Her clan trusted her unique skills for what they were.
The Dragon Highlands had been under surveillance of Man as of late, and this concerned her. Her shy compatriots noticed too but resolved to ignore the irritation in hopes it would go away.
Rose Hillway knew it wouldn’t.
