Dirt by C.C. Hogan | Indie Sci-fi and Fantasy
If Johnson Farthing thought that life as poor cart pusher in the coastal town of Wead-Wodder was going to be his lot in life, then he was about to get a rude surprise. When his beautiful younger sister Rustina is kidnapped along with the daughter of the country's ruler, Farthing chases them across the world of Dirt carried by an incredible Sea Dragon and accompanied by a strange magician. But this is just the start, and soon what began as an adventure, will plunge them all into war. Dirt is a world where dragons are an intelligent, cultured people, magicians cannot destroy mountains with a magic wand and the heroes have no wish to become tyrannical kings and queens. But through all the dramatic events, the battles for life and death, Dirt is a place of humour, love and ultimately, the quest to find a home. Behind the Story On the face of it, Dirt is another High Fantasy, but there are some very important differences. Firstly are the dragons. They are huge, but they don't blow smoke.
