Toma and Nuk are two young boy in a medieval village. Almost twenty, they are grown together and at one point their child games turned into sex games: they kiss and rub, still like two child who fight in the ground. They don't know that there is more, that they could do other... And then they find a dead knight and a dragon's egg near him. The little dragon who exits from the egg chooses Toma as companion and Toma suddenly is responsable of a little life.

This is a very short story but fortunately Vic Winter has just written the second part, Here There Be Dragons 2: Squire. I think that the setting is pretty realistic (if you could define realistic a story with a dragon...), and from the beginning I have had the feeling to read an Arthurian Cicly type of story. I have had previously the opportunity to read something setting in a fantasy world by Vic Winter (in the Winter Garden Anthology), and I have to say that Vic Winter has a fairy touch in his writing. I'm waiting to read more.

Book description
Childhood friends Toma and Nuk tend to play when they're not working, just like they did when they were children together. When they find the body of a dead knight in the woods, they know it's no game, and try to do what they can for the poor man's body. They find something else while they're burying the knight, something far more mysterious, and special. When their new find turns out to be a dragon egg, Toma decides to help the animal, befriending it and taking care. He and Nuk have no idea what it will take to keep their new charge, and themselves, safe. Can they find a way to stay together and keep the dragon alive?
