Dragon and Soldier is the second of Timothy Zahn's Dragonback novels, and the first sequel to Dragon and Thief . It is a thriller, set partly on two Earthlike planets and partly aboard an intelligent spacecraft, and following two protagonists on an unsuccessful investigation: the human youth 'Jack Morgan' and his dragonlike partner 'Draycos'.

On another note, just to keep things clear, I am a guy who just happen to be good at writing, (at least in my own opinion).

Next, if you haven't realized, I'm a type of person who says it how it is and that does get me in trouble, a lot. But I learned to just shut my mouth and don't say a word, which for some reason also gets me in trouble.

The only other thing that I can tell you about what I like about stories is if the story is good or not and that I will read any rating, no matter what is in it, be it blood, gore, guts, going from one place to another, fighting evil, or saving a world against impenetrable odds, what ever, if its good that is, if the writing is bad then the story won't make any since and that only brings a headache.

The Saint George and the Dragon legend describes the saint taming and slaying a dragon that demanded human sacrifices; the saint thereby rescues the princess chosen as the next offering.

Only a kernel of the legend occurs in the ancient hagiography of Saint George dating to the 7th century or earlier. Here, a monarch referred to as "dragon of the abyss" persecutes the saint. The dragon-slaying may have been transferred from the legend attached to St. Theodore .

The earliest known narrative of the full dragon episode is an 11th-century Georgian text. " Iconographical " artistic depictions that match the story in its important elements occur in the contemporaneous period in Georgia , corroborating the legend's possible origin there. The dragon-slaying St. George (without the princess) existed much earlier.
