Publisher's Summary

Dragons do not cry. They control their emotions. This is what all dragons were taught, but I am now the only one alive to remember this lesson...

Meet Vincent, a most unusual dragon.

For thousands of years he’s been trapped - forced to spend what’s left of his existence among us in the form of a human for a crime in which he was unjustly convicted. When a new love arrives unexpectedly, Vincent discovers that the only way to find happiness is to revisit his violent past and to confront his uncertain future.

From a world that’s been hidden from view to a history that if acknowledged would end in torture and death, Vincent’s tale is a timeless one, both epic and intimate - as fierce as a dragon’s breath and as delicate as its tears.

Haunting, heartfelt, and sometimes funny, Vincent discovers that even through tragedy, the things we most often try to avoid are those that make us human.

    "Think Interview with a Vampire, but with Dragons"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Only Human to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed both versions


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Only Human?

    Mehalek's ONLY HUMAN takes you on a journey through Vincent's past lives and loves as he navigates his present incarnation and the darkness that follows him throughout the ages.


    What about DJ Donnelley’s performance did you like?

    He used many believable voices in order to make each character unique.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Like many of the episodes within Vincent's life, the ending of Only Human made me cry and stayed with me long after I finished.


    Any additional comments?

    The theme of love as redeemer permeates the book, It is a refreshing mix of fantasy, romance, and horror.

    Story
    ""Game of Thrones" meets "Interview with a Vampire""

    "Only Human" takes you on a journey through time. It's narrative is fast paced and the its characters are intriguing. It is a cross between the fantastical world of "Game of Thrones," and the epic tales of love, loss, longing and betrayal in "Interview with a Vampire." A tale that illuminates human nature in a way that can only be told using magical creatures.
