9780062121936: Talker 25

Debut author Joshua McCune's gritty and heart-pounding novel is a masterful reimagining of popular dragon fantasy set in a militant future reminiscent of Paolo Bacigalupi's Ship Breaker and Ann Aguirre's Outpost. The Horn Book called it "absolutely gripping and absolutely horrifying."

It's a high-school prank gone horribly wrong—sneaking onto the rez to pose next to a sleeping dragon—and now senior Melissa Callahan has become an unsuspecting pawn in a war between Man and Monster, between family and friends and the dragons she has despised her whole life. 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 secret, and where a gruesome television show called Kissing Dragons unites the population. Joshua McCune's debut novel offers action, adventure, fantasy, and a reimagining of popular dragon lore. "The story packs significant punch."—Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover:

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 and thrown into a cell to . . . well, to what? Think about how great her life once was? Think about all the lies? Think about escaping? No, not 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 are 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.

About the Author:

Joshua McCune was born on a navy base in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He grew up in London and Washington, D.C., went to college in Texas, and got married in New Zealand. He worked as a telemarketer, an SAT instructor, and a robotics engineer before becoming an author. He currently lives in San Antonio, Texas, with his family, writing stories of people and places just beyond the reach of planes, trains, and automobiles (but not dragons).
