Why had his mother tried to kill him? What had he done to deserve death? Raven looked up at the sky. Tears trickled from the dragon’s eyes, making the stars and sliver of moon dance and blur. Raven fled from the family longhouse the moment he was born. Wounded both physically and emotionally from his flight, he finds refuge in the company of Audrey, a human whose plane had crashed in an isolated mountain valley. The seasons pass, and Raven grows closer to the woman as he reaches his full size. He hopes and prays that one day he’ll be strong enough to take Audrey to where she most wants to go, a place called London. But what will she do if they ever reach the city? Raven is the darkly beautiful dragon who features in the urban fantasy series, ‘Penny White’. This novella is his origin story.
