Destiny’s Forge Book 1 in the SF/vampire series Children of The Dragon by Theresa M. Moore, published by Antellus. Honor and duty, espionage and revenge, space adventure and vampire romance in the 23rd century. A stranger from another planet finds her fate changed by destiny in her quest to track down a war criminal from her world.
Based on a series of short stories created by the author from 1988 – 1995, the first book is a full novel of adventures of the series heroine against the backdrop of high adventure and space opera inspired by many of the TV series and films of the last century. “I was influenced by such classics as Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica, and films like Forbidden Planet, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and The Time Machine,” she said. “I wanted to craft an original adventure from elements and themes familiar to readers, of good vs. evil, and came up with something which almost exceeded my expectations.”
The Children of The Dragon series is a chronicle of the Xosan, living vampires from the planet Antellus who were once human but were transformed by a dragon’s blood. They are stories of science fiction, fact and fantasy, myth and history, tragedy and triumph; linked together by the theme of the vampire as hero.
