Read the book once in the late 90's The only things I can remember are:

  • Dragons were some sort of war machine (built and maintained, rather then real, living creatures)
  • A bunch of somewhat magical creatures working in a factory.
  • The pilot of the dragon has small needles inserted into their arms.
  • Lastly, I'm associating the color green with the cover.

Anyone got any ideas?


I'm not sure but all that comes to mind is The Iron Dragon's Daughter. I'm not sure if it is the same book.

  • That's the one, thank you. Don't remember particularly enjoying it back then, but it has been bugging me for a while, going to give it another shot. – AerusDar Aug 1 '13 at 5:44
  • The Dragons of Babel takes place in the same world, and is quite a good read. – JohnWinkelman Aug 1 '13 at 14:54
