The Wake of the Dragon: A Steampunk Adventure

The Wake of the Dragon: A Steampunk Adventure - Jaq D. Hawkins Coming out of an opium induced hypnotic allure can be enjoyable or catastrophic depending on the conditions around the dragon at the time. Air pirates, riding an airship, lighter than air - looking for the goddess Aide, in an opium dream - find it exhilarating in a strong wind.
This book tells of an adventure where the captain of the ship, a mysterious fellow, enjoys the dragon so much he becomes the merchant of stolen crates of opium. Jaq D Hawkins describes the lifting of the crates so well the reader can imagine their own involvement in the procedure. As the adventure includes a farmers daughter, a clerk asked to spy, a captured guard, and a mysterious vagabond the story moves right along through complications, and surprises to it's astonishing end.
