Dragon and Judge (2007) is the fifth SF novel in the Dragonback series, Following Dragon and Herdsman. In the previous volume, Jack, K'da and Alison herded the Erassvas and Phookas through the forest. They outmaneuvered the Malison Ring mercenaries several times.

Then Frost drove them to the river with a forest fire. Unfortunately for the mercenaries, Uncle Virge was lurking in the river and damaged the transport vessel. Jack and his friends then left the planet in a very conspicuous manner.

In this novel, Jack Morgan was a con artist before he met Draycos. Now he is a young man who hosts a K'da.

Draycos is a K'da, a species that is symbiotic with other beings. Draycos can spread himself over Jack's body like a tattoo. Draycos is also a warrior-poet with the mission of warning his people of the ambush that killed his comrades.

Alison Kayna is a thief and spy. She had escaped with Jack from the Malison Ring mercenary unit on Sunright. Now she has become the host of Taneem.

Taneem is a K'da, but knows little about her species. She had been a symbiont of an Erassva on Rho Scorvi and thus lacked education and training. Now she is Alizon's symbiont.

Uncle Virge is a simulated personality within the computer on Jack's ship. He is a copy of Jack's Uncle Virgil. He has most of Virgil's skills and quirks, but cannot override orders from Jack.

Maximus Frost is a Colonel within the Malison Ring mercenaries. He is a rogue, on the payroll of Arthur Neverlin. They apparently arranged the ambush of the Shontine/K'da advance party.

In this story, Taneem is learning to read. She learns the lessons with some difficulty because of the idiosyncrasies of the language. Draycos supplements her reading with stories of the K'da and their Shontine hosts.

Jack is trying to hack into another Malison Ring computer system, but it locks him out. Alison offers to help, but Jack is mot willing to give her have access to the communicator. He still doesn't trust her.

Jack and his friends need to discover where the Shontine and K'da are planning to meet with their contacts in this space. They assume that their enemies know the rendezvous point. Now they have to pick another Malison Ring station to try again.

Uncle Virge tells them the location of the two nearest stations. Although Montenegro is closest, Jack tells him to go to Vers'tekim. When asked why, Jack says that he wants to go to Semaline, which is on the way to Vers'tekim.

Virgil had often stopped at Semaline. When he went to the bank at the spaceport, Jack was always left behind. Now Jack wants to see what is inside Virgil's lockbox.

Arriving a Semaline, Jack goes to the bank with Draycos spread on his skin. Before he reaches the bank, however, three natives smell his scent and declare him a Jupa. They take him -- despite his protests -- to their home in a desert canyon.

Later, Alison goes to the bank to find Jack, but without success. She does retrieve the items within the lockbox, but two men accost her and take her prisoner. They fly her off the planet to a spaceship, where Colonel Frost confronts her. She is told to break into a safe.

This tale gives Jack some important information about his parents. Alison also gains information about the Shontine/K'da rendezvous. Taneem learns a few lessons about being a K'da warrior.

This story advances Jack and Draycos toward their contact with the Shontine/K'da. The next volume -- Dragon and Liberator -- may complete their mission. Read and enjoy!

Recommended for Zahn fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of high adventure, alien customs, and youthful agents.

Awesome series, I read this because I was such a fan of all of Timothy Zahn's Star Wars series. And although the protagonist is a young boy it was still highly thrilling. The dragon is such a new an interesting concept from what people are used to. And the adventure is different in each book, though the characters are the same, they continue to get more interesting! Each book has a different setting and theme on various planets with dynamically creative aliens.

The Dragonback series is in my opinion a wonderful adventure for young adults of all ages. The Dragon and Judge is the fifth in the series and I am still captivated by the story and the message that it shares with the reader. Jack and Dracos are becoming more than a team. Together they are better than they could have ever been alone. In this book Jack discovers who his parents really were, Judge/Palidins, and they died trying to fight for the rights of a species that wouldn't have a voice otherwise. Jack risks his life trying to do the right thing and Dracos is hurt in the process, which up's the emtional stake. As a contrast Jack's friend Allison from earlier books is on a mission of her own retrieving information about Dracos' people. As she builds a relationship with her dragon, she finds herself making choices she would not normally make. I can't wait to read the next book!

This is a really great dragon story. Very different from all the other boy+dragon stories. Very enjoyable.

In this the fifth book of the series, Zahn does something that he's very good at. He separates his characters and has his two stories running parallel. While Jack and Draycos are finding out what really happened to Jack's late parents, Alison and her symbiant find themselves back on the slave planet of Dragon and Slave: The Third Dragonback Adventure (Dragonback). Alison has been captured by The Malison Ring in order to help them obtain the information of where Draycos's people will arrive. Once again, the relationship between Draycos and Jack takes a new and unexpected turn. A must read.

This entire series is vetted as for "young readers" and while it is not a complex, deep philosophical book it kept my interest through out and I am 54 so this is one I have shared with my thirteen year old and we have been equally satisfied with it.

Me because it was entertaining enough and not in anyway condenscending in tone and to my thirteen year old as the main character is fourteen. LOL.

I recommend the entire series

Overall, a pretty good book, much as a reader might expect from Timothy Zahn. I do think that the final three books of this series (Herdsman, Judge and Liberator) are slightly weaker overall than the initial three.

Worth the read.
Even though these are supposed to be young adult books, I really enjoyed them.
