ABOUT

Joshua McCune's gritty and heart-pounding novel is a masterful reimagining of popular dragon fantasy lore set in a militaristic future reminiscent of Paolo Bacigalupi's Ship Breaker and Ann Aguirre's Outpost. Chilling, epic, and wholly original, this debut novel imagines a North America where dragons are kept on reservations, where strict blackout rules are obeyed no matter the cost, where the highly weaponized military operates in chilling secret, and where a gruesome television show called Kissing Dragons unites the population. After a high-school prank goes horribly wrong, Melissa Callahan becomes an unsuspecting pawn in a war between man and monster, between family and friends and the dragons she has despised her whole life. Talker 25 delivers action, adventure, fantasy, and a reimagining of popular dragon lore.

Book Description

"Wakey, wakey, everyone."
It's Monday. I think.
Technically, I've been here a week.
Feels like forever.

Melissa Callahan has always hated the dragons. They destroyed her mother, her family, her home. And now she's been charged with collaborating with them, with being an insurgent, and she's been thrown into a cell to . . . well, to what? Think about her nonexistent crimes? Think about how great her life once was? Think about James and her father and her brother and the lies? Think about escaping, when everyone knows that's impossible since the ice stretches forever and the cold is unbearable and the dragons can't hear her anymore.

Melissa Callahan is OTG. Off the grid. And so is Talker 1 and Talker 2 and Talker 3, 5, 7, 11, 22, 26 . . . all of them talking, constantly talking, into the void. All of them waiting for an answer.
