Y. Dragonborn 7/10
Natiya has the Queen dragon egg as a jewel in her navel. She has kept it hidden in the 10 years since the evil dragon emperor Rashad murdered all her family, and all the other dragon scholars and their books and scrolls. Kiril is a dragon Hunter who seeks and kills dragons. He sees Natiya belly dancing in a tavern and is overwhelmed by his attraction to her. Her realises she is the Natiya he has been seeking in behalf of the emperor who wants the Queen egg. Kiril plans to kill the queen egg and kill the emperor, who also murdered all his family, and has ruled like a mad tyrant for over 100 years. So Kiril works to get Natiya to trust him, yet falls under her spell himself. They make love then she is captured by the emperor. She sees he keeps his copper dragon chained and escapes. Kiril helps her birth her Golden Queen and they fight the emperor. His copper exchanges bodies and then kills Rashad in the dragon body. The Queen, Kirril, and Natiya decide to stay to rebuild the country with justice and strangely American political concepts.
A flawed story, but fun.
