Fiction: The Scarlet Tortoise Expedition

book cover showing sailing ship, crescent moon, sunset, purple hills, waves, with the title The Scarlet Tortoise Expedition

Would you give first aid to a wounded dragon?

Or would you run for your life?

Captain Hunt thinks they should run. He brought the expedition to this remote, mysterious island to find and save a highly endangered giant tortoise, not to get everybody killed!

But the others disagree. The dragon may look big and bad and dangerous, but they can’t bear to just stand by and watch it die. Even Terry, the expedition’s artist and youngest member, finds his fascination overcoming his fear.

One way or another, they’re going closer. Even if the species they end up needing to save turns out to be their own!

“The literary equivalent of dark chocolate…I didn’t want it to end.”
