'So much fun ... adorable characters, seductive dragons, narcissist cats, crazy imagination and lots of wisdom' LIAN HEARN
An exciting new adventure filled with diverse characters, strong heroes and heroines and wild creatures from the bestselling author of White Tiger.
Corporal Jian Choumali is on the mission of a lifetime - security officer on one of Earth's huge generation ships, fleeing Earth's failing ecosystem to colonise a distant planet.
The ship encounters a technologically and culturally advanced alien empire, led by a royal family of dragons. The empire's dragon emissary offers her aid to the people of Earth, bringing greater health, longer life, and faster-than-light travel to nearby stars.
But what price will the people of Earth have to pay for the generous alien assistance?
In this first book in a brand new series, Kylie Chan brings together pacey, compelling storytelling and an all-too-possible imagined future in a tale packed with action, adventure, drama and suspense.
'Scales of Empire is not your average sci-fi adventure. This genderbending inter-stellar romp is full of delightful surprises that kept me enthralled from start to end. I am dragonstruck! TRACI HARDING
'So different to her other books, but unmistakably Kylie Chan ...Imaginative, epic, and heaps of fun, while still exploring thought-provoking and important themes.' ALAN BAXTER
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The first instalment in Kylie Chan’s Dragon Empire trilogy takes place on a resource-depleted Earth, where humans are forced to colonise nearby stars for survival. While Corporal Jian Choumali is training for her job of a lifetime, she meets a race of highly intelligent, telepathic, physically alluring alien dragons who appear remarkably benevolent … at first. Chan’s action-packed story is so wonderfully entertaining, well-crafted and original, it almost begs the question: why aren’t there more fantastical sci-fi romances about smart, sexy space dragons?
A good start
Very much looking forward to the next book.
Loved this story, the exploration of humanity through alien/fantasy (dragon) eyes and the beauty of self-choice. Looking forward to the next instalment. Particularly looking forward to seeing how Oliver ‘s story develops.
I loved the book can’t wait for the next one.
Kylie is one of my favourite authors
