Dragonkin, Being a History of House Targaryen from Exile to Apotheosis, with a Consideration of the Life and Death of Dragons is a book written by Maester Thomax. There is a picture of Balerion the Black Dread done in coloured inks in the book, meaning that he may be one of the dragons Thomax writes about.

A known copy survives in the library at Castle Black.[1]

A Feast For Crows

Dragonkin is one of the stack of books that Samwell Tarly brings up from the library beneath Castle Black, along with the Jade Compendium which Maester Aemon had commanded him to find.[1]

Making his way toward the armory Sam drops both books as he goes to catch Gilly by the arm. The Jade Compendium is undamaged but Dragonkin had come open as it fell, and a few pages had gotten muddy, including one with a rather nice picture of Balerion. Sam curses himself for a clumsy oaf as he smooths the pages down and brushes them off. He delivers the stack of books from the library to Aemon's chambers.[1]
