    Once upon a time, long before man walked the Earth, dragons ruled the world, masters of all they surveyed. When mankind came into existence and geometrically multiplied, the dragons were hunted down and thought to have become extinct. Eventually, they were found in fairy tales and the remaining dragons that lived among humanity kept it that way. They shape change into human form and do business with humans, but know never to trust or befriend them.

    Peter Dela Sangre, a dragon that spends much of his time in human form, is conflicted about human beings as he went to school with them and only kills them to eat. When he mates with a female dragon who feels nothing but contempt and disdain for humanity, he loves her enough to respect her wishes until the day comes that he refused to kill the brother of a woman he ate.

    Alan F. Troop has done for dragons what Anne Rice has done for vampires and Laurell K. Hamilton has done for werewolves by making his creation so realistic and endearing even though they eat people. THE DRAGON DELASANGRE is an exciting fantasy set on modern day earth that hooks the audience whom reaches out to Peter for enduring so much pain in his young life. Fantasy and horror lovers will have a feast reading the first novel in what looks to be a great series
