The Drache Girl: Bessemer
It was the size of a small pony, covered in scales the color of polished steel. Every step it took was a study in grace, and from the tip of its whiskered snout, past its folded wings, to the tip of its barbed tail, it seemed to just flow along.
“They look as though they’ve never seen a dragon before,” said the dragon.
Bessemer the dragon appears more in The Drache Girl than any other book in the series. He is right there on the first page, and what's more, he's grown up enough to talk. He's a regular character in his own right. Part of the story of the series is his growth of course, but I found him particularly fun to write in this book.
