The Chronicles of Dragon: The Hero, The Sword and The Dragons (Book 1)
by Craig Halloran
Nath is a man destined to be a dragon. In order to become a dragon, he must save the dragons and avoid killing if he can. Meddling with other races tends to trip Nath up.
"The way of men is not the way of the dragon," his father warned. Yet, unable to control his fascination with the world of men, elves, dwarves, and even the despised orcs, Nath tends to get caught up in their affairs.
