George R.R. Martin – The Ice Dragon

Noch bevor George R.R. Martin das Lied von Eis und Feuer schrieb, brachte er die Kurzgeschichte „Der Eisdrache“ heraus. Diese wurde jetzt als Hardcover-Buch verlegt. Zwar wurde die Geschichte schon mehrfach in Geschichtensammlungen verwurstet, z.B. „Tolkiens Geschöpfe„, aber dies ist die vollständige Fassung und somit einen Blick wert (?)

The ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear, for no man had ever tamed one. When it flew overhead, it left in its wake desolate cold and frozen land. But Adara was not afraid. For Adara was a winter child, born during the worst freeze that anyone, even the Old Ones, could remember. Adara could not remember the first time she had seen the ice dragon. It seemed that it had always been in her life, glimpsed from afar as she played in the frigid snow long after the other children had fled the cold. In her fourth year she touched it, and in her fifth year she rode upon its broad, chilled back for the first time. Then, in her seventh year, on a calm summer day, fiery dragons from the North swooped down upon the peaceful farm that was Adaras home. And only a winter child — and the ice dragon who loved her — could save her world from utter destruction. The Ice Dragon marks the highly anticipated childrens book debut of George R.R. Martin, the award-winning author of the best-selling series A Song of Ice and Fire and is set in the same world. Illustrated with lush, exquisitely detailed pencil drawings by acclaimed artist Yvonne Gilbert, The Ice Dragon is an unforgettable tale of courage, love, and sacrifice by one of the most honored fantasists of all time.

The Ice Dragon kann bei Amazon bestellt werden.
