The Tale of Euan Redcap.
All Euan Redcap wants is not to mess things up for his sister’s birthday party. Fate, however, has different plans as he stumbles into the clutches of the crazed Mrs Zachariah, the captain of dragon ship, The Drunken Molly. Kidnapped and made to be the ship’s fetcher, Euan is forced to struggle for his survival. When Euan is used as human bait in an effort to catch the great dragon, White Sow, things go from bad to worse. Especially when Euan learns that dragons are slowly dying out, due to the dragon hunters, which will, in time, affect the very way of life of his people. How can Euan share his newfound knowledge with the world? And can he stay alive long enough?
