Not sure if this thread is still active. I'm new to the site. But anyway, I am looking for a book from the 90s, I guess YA Fantasy. I remember the cover was 2 dragons one black one white battling. The main character was a young white dragon, one of the first born in a while. I think there was a female too, and they were the hope of the next generation.
But the clan of dragons met the black dragons and began fighting. It turns out whenever a black dragon falls so does a white dragon. The battle between them is their doom. It's kind of a sad end of dragons book in a way.
I'm not even sure why it sticks out in my mind so much, but I would really like to find it.

Have done searches to no avail, but figured this was as good a place as any.

I have no idea, but @Lady Ty is quite the dragon expert...
Dragon addict, but not expert JR  ;D  Sorry, Brand  I tried hard to think of a book that may fit, but no luck.
You never know with this thread, it is always worth trying, people come back ages later with an answer so who knows.  Maybe @Elfy has a suggestion? He is our supreme library master.
I had a thought about this. E. E. Knight did a series that may be it.

@Elfy you are a marvel,and jogged a long ago memory. Is this familiar, Brand?

Think I need to seek these out for a re-read.


No, that's not it, unfortunately. while I can't be positive, I am pretty sure it was standalone. I thought it was at first. I appreciate the help. This has been driving me crazy for years. It had to be the early 90s when it was out.

Anyone know if Fletchers Manifest Delusions has only paperback editions or is hardcover just rare?

On Amazon there only seems to be Paperback. The only hardcover I've found was in Russian.
Slow and steady wins the race.

Yup only released in paperback in English. I would suggest that if you find a real copy in paperback you buy it. Not only is it a cracking read but there are a finite number in existence and the original publisher will not re-release it.

Of late, I’ve been recollecting old fantasy novels from the early 1980’s that I read as a young teen but for various reasons my collection was lost. Anyway, there’s one novel that I’ve been unable to remember the title or author. It was a standard fare adult swords and sorcery theme with a protagonist searching for a magical item to save the world. The only detail of the plot I can remember is that it involved a male searching for a box and a way to open the box. Near the end of the novel, the box was opened and contained a magical velvet or leather gauntlet or glove. Ring any bells? Yeah, I know, it doesn’t sound exciting nor a lot of information to go on. But it’s been eating at me to identify the book. Thanks!
