A boxed set of two Star Rigger novels:

Dragons in the Stars -- When star pilot Jael LeBrae rebels against an abusive ship's master and dares to fly "the mountain route" through the Flux--the hyperspace navigated by riggers--she dismisses the legend claiming that dragons lurk waiting to duel unwary riggers. But appear they do, challenging Jael to a fight to the death. Thanks to the wisdom of a dragon named Highwing, she survives the encounter and returns to starport wiser and stronger. But she hardly expects that fate will bring her back to that realm, to defend Highwing against a darkness that seeks his death.

Dragon Rigger -- War engulfs the dragon world, fueled by an unseen foe--a creature of terrible power, known as Tar-skel, "the Nail of Strength." Tar-skel seeks to shape all of space and time into a web of power and death. The Dream Mountain, source of knowledge and life to all dragons, is held by the enemy; and yet, a single hope burns in the dragons' hearts. Led by Windrush, son of Highwing, the dragons await the "One," whom prophecy says shall come from outside the realm--the One who will challenge the darkness. That "One" is Jael LeBrae, human star rigger. Once before, Jael aided the dragons in their struggle. Now she must return to face at last the terrible wrath of Tar-skel. And according to prophecy, the cost of changing the realm is Jael's own life.

Science fiction with mythic dimension, from the Nebula-nominated author of Eternity's End and The Chaos Chronicles!

Individual novels appeared in print from Tor Books. DRM-free omnibus edition.

Review Quotes:


"Carver writes powerfully and clearly." --Booklist

"An interesting and entertaining blend of genres." --Don D'Ammassa, Science Fiction Chronicle

"Carver's prose effectively lends a spare yet evocative resonance to the draconian realm. Like a good stage performer, this story should leave its audience wanting more." --John Bunnell, Amazing Stories

"Carver is a strong SF writer, with a good feel for both the hard SF elements and the people he populates them with... he is not only comfortable working with fantasy elements, but able to succeed at the tough job of melding them into a science-fictional environment." --C. von Rospach, Amazing Stories


"A refreshingly unique setting and excellently realized characters." --Publishers Weekly

"Dragon Rigger is a most excellent adventure that would make a grand movie.... there is immense verve, energy, momentum, and power... the reader stays with Carver all the way." --Thomas A. Easton, Analog

Outstanding read! I had to force myself to put it down, if only to make the read longer. The story has everything. Honor, courage, faithfulness, betrayal, and friendship. Not to mention the good versus evil struggle. This is one of those books I'll read again.
