Dragon Defender - Terry Fortun
Young Shirai wakes up in the world of Lu' Cel with no idea who he is. Shirai has been changed into a half-man, half-dragon hybrid, and suffers from amnesia. He wanders the dark paths of a world he does not know, attempting to uncover his past and the reason for his new hybrid form.
Shirai is befriended by three others, all seeking something, and the four of them set off to wander Lu' Cel in search of Shirai's past. Who is the young hero? And where did he get the magical sword in his possession? There are much grander questions in this new world, though-questions about a war that has ravaged Lu' Cel for ages. Can the foursome find peace, and where does Shirai's lost identity fit into it all? Can this lost dragon being become a victorious dragon man-perhaps even a Chosen One in Lu'Cel?"Dragon Defender takes the reader to a world of good and evil, magic and mystery, where Shirai-part dragon, part man-finds himself the reluctant Chosen One. The friends he makes on his quest to save Lu' Cel do not regret joining him. You won't either."
