Carleah and Jagunth by Amy Brennan
Carleah went straight to the dragonet and wrapped her arms around the soft green neck, burying her face against Jagunth’s warm hide… Jagunth curved her neck around and rested her nose on Carleah’s shoulder.
It occurred to Carleah, with a pang of sadness, that her dragon wouldn’t be able to do that for much longer. Even now, she was really too big. (Chapter four, Dragonchoice 3)
Carleah is the daughter of green rider C’los, though she was brought up by her mother at the Harperhall at Kellad Hold. She Impressed Jagunth from Shimpath’s clutch in Dragonchoice 2.
Amy’s lovely painting captures this tender moment between dragonet and rider.
