“DRAGON’S DEN is a well-written science fiction novel with vivid and intriguing characters tangled up in fascinating plot twists. I felt like I was there in this fictional world, experiencing it through the eyes and thoughts and emotions of the main character, Raza. This is one of those small books you read in one sitting and want more. You can also read DRAGON’S DEN inside the award-winning anthology COSMIC SCULPTURE, which is a real bargain because you get one novel plus over a dozen SF/fantasy short stories with it.” ~ reviewed by Amber Sparks for Roserock Reviews [FIVE STARS]

“Karazamon ‘Raza’ Toa Kalandyn was a 153 year old dragon. He was 6’6″ tall with black hair, gray eyes and half-inch long very prominent fangs. Raza was the Master of Martial Arts at the Talakara Temple. He was also a member of the Sooran Guard, the elite warrior class of the temples. As such, he prepared to help his father’s investigation into unauthorized shipments of the mineral with a secret formula: M-3. Mistress Tirakareez Toa Lodicann, Kareez, was a 24-year-old dragon with light brown hair, sapphire eyes, and delicate white fangs. Her name means Little Fire Dragon and her training in martial arts has resulted in a lethal telepath that is true to her name. Kareez also traveled with Raza’s father to the temple to quietly assist with the investigation. Raza does not know his own talents. With his crystal knife, he is the solution to the source of the shipments. Kareez has detected the sorcery and between them, they are a formidable force, that is, if pheromones can stay out of the way. In DRAGON’S DEN, Terri Branson has brought us a dragon world for the science fiction aficionado. Her characters are in bright colors right before your eyes, and her world is so real you need a coat to cut the snowy cold. I am excited to see that more dragons are in the publishing future, because this story is out-of-this-world wonderful. It is hard to wait on pins and needles for the next exciting adventure. These dragons are truly a keeper.” ~ reviewed by Brenda McCoy for Coffee Time Romance [FIVE STARS]
