Publisher Description

Man has warred for centuries with the reptilian race called "Basics". The winner of each bloody encounter has made slaves of the loser—but in this far-future conflict each side improves its slaves with genetic engineering. On Aerlith, men have bred Basics into fearsome troops; on Coralyne, Basics have developed grotesque mutant human warriors. The mysterious Sacerdotes watch and wait for Aerlith and Coralyne's final contest.

Hugo Award winner, 1963.

Dragon Masters

I love this story. I have read this book over so many times through the years since I first read it. I wish that a sequel had been written regarding the the repair of the basic ship and the adventures of searching for other worlds of mankind.

Now for my second wish… audio

This is one of my favorite science fiction books of all time. The dialog and the conflicts (both on the field and off) are absolutely top-notch. He doesn't actually describe the dragons much, just a sketch, but it's enough for someone with imagination. I've read this book several times over the years and enjoy it more each time. It used to be published alongside "The Last Castle", another great book.
