Excerpt: “Lord Bai’s Discovery”

Dragon's Lure cover (main)

Lord Bai crossed his arms over his broad scaled chest and shook his head.

“It’s against my religion.”

Old Lao’s eyebrows pushed the wrinkles on his forehead to the crown of his head. “Since when did you become a Buddhist? And what path permits you to eat an ox and not a horse?”

“Not Buddhist—Jewish,” the dragon lied. “It’s very common where I come from.”

“And where is that, exactly?”

The dragon looped his tail in a vague westerly arc. “Very common,” he repeated.
