9780765337948: Dragon Heart: A Fantasy Novel

In Dragon Heart, Cecelia Holland, America's most distinguished historical novelist steps fully into the realm of fantasy and makes it her own.

Where the Cape of the Winds juts into the endless sea, there is Castle Ocean, and therein dwells the royal family that has ruled it from time immemorial. But an eastern Empire has risen, and its forces have reached the castle. King Reymarro is dead in battle, and by the new treaty, Queen Marioza must marry one of the Emperor's brothers. While Marioza delays, her youngest son, Jeon, goes on a journey in search of his mute twin, Tirza, who needs to be present for the wedding.

As Jeon and Tirza return by sea, their ship is attacked by a powerful dragon, red as blood and big as the ship. Thrown into the water, Tirza clings to the dragon, and after an underwater journey, finds herself alone with the creature in an inland sea pool. Surprisingly, she is able to talk to the beast, and understand it.

So begins a saga of violence, destruction, and death, of love and monsters, human and otherwise.

From the Inside Flap:

"You got your castle, your princess, your dragon ... But wait. This is from one of today's most acclaimed historical novelists, author of Jerusalem, The Firedrake, and The Great Maria-Cecelia Holland, the queen of lean and mean. So it's a real castle, a real princess, and a real dragon. And a real hell of a ride."
-Terry Bisson, author of Any Day Now

Where the Cape of Winds juts into the endless sea, there is Castle Ocean which is either haunted or simply alive, and therein dwells the royal family that has ruled it from time immemorial. But there is an Empire growing in the East, and its forces have reached the castle. King Reymarro is dead in battle, and by the new treaty, Queen Marioza must marry one of the Emperor's brothers. She loathes the idea, and has already killed the first brother, but a second arrives, escorted by more soldiers. While Marioza delays, her youngest son, Jeon, goes on a journey in search of his mute twin, Tirza, who needs to be present for the wedding.

As Jeon and Tirza return by sea, their ship is attacked by a shocking and powerful dragon, red as blood and big as the ship. Thrown into the water, Tirza clings to the dragon, and after an underwater journey, finds herself alone with the creature in an inland sea pool. Surprisingly, she is able to talk to the beast, and understand it.

So begins a saga of violence, destruction, and death, of love and monsters, human and otherwise.

From the Back Cover:

"Holland's vision is constant and her books keep going deeper. This time she takes the sea dragon and the castle by the sea and plunges them right into your unconscious. It's like Hemingway doing Merwyn Peake, only really it's not like anything else: it's Holland doing her thing."
-Kim Stanley Robinson, author of Shaman: A Novel of the Ice Age

"It takes a woman to reach the heart of a dragon as Cecelia Holland does in this dazzling account of a wild, inarticulate princess and a monster bent on destruction. The intrigues, the loves, the pitched battles that unfold in the crumbling kingdom she draws in Dragon Heart are as powerful-and as real- as any in her brilliant historical novels."
-Kit Reed, author of Thinner Than Thou and What Wolves Know

"Dragon Heart is a novel infused with the rhythms and magic of the sea ... and it's none of it the way you thought it was going to be. At the core of this whole magical construct are a girl and a dragon. The girl is both more and less than human, while the dragon is wholly unhuman-and wholly a Man, in his arrogant power; in his fiery rage; and most of all in a fierce loyalty which transcends love. This is a wonderful story, and a wonderful book."
-David Drake, author of Redliners
