…From now on he’s got two hearts beating in his scale-clad chest,
and two mighty wings on his back. In the faraway planet of two moons,
he was born again as a dragon……but would it make him any less human?

The Dragon Inside, a bestselling series by Alex Sapegin, is comprised of a total of four books: 

– Becoming the Dragon
– Taking Wing
– A Tale of Violence
– Three Wars 

It is a saga of portal traveling, bodily transformations, reincarnation and epic combat, but first and foremost a story of discovering and reclaiming one’s true self.

Having unwittingly stumbled into the site of a scientific experiment, Andrei gets teleported to the faraway planet of Ilanta, inhabited by both human and supernatural beings. In this new world, he will encounter all kinds of exciting adventures and grim challenges, mastering his newly developed magic skills, befriending orcs, elves and dragons, fighting the good fight, and eventually continuing on his quest for justice reincarnated as a dragon.

It was obvious right from the get-go that destiny had something unique in store for Andrei Kerimov, a small-town teenager who survived a direct stroke of lightning which left him with immunity to electronic devices and extraordinary magic powers just waiting to be released.

Teleported to the fairytale world of Ilanta, Andrei gets no cordial welcome: he is captured, chained up and sold into slavery but not before he accidentally activated an ancient artifact and set free Karegar the Dragon who would later become his mentor and foster father. When fatally wounded, Andrei chooses to undergo an ancient ritual to be reborn as a dragon, a.k.a. a Master of Heaven.

He will have to go a long way before settling into his new body and mastering his newly acquired powers. On his way, he will make loyal friends and bitter enemies, going through fire and ice, defending the right and taking the weak under his wing. Little does he know though that he is destined to play a central part in an epic conflict soon to break out where the future of the two planets, as well as his now-faraway homeland, would be at stake…
