About the book
Coming July 2017: a stunning new edition featuring cover art from Laura Ellen Anderson!
Firedrake, a brave young dragon, and a lonely boy called Ben are united as if by destiny. Together, they embark on a magical journey to find the legendary place where silver dragons can live in peace. With only a curious map and the whispered memories of an old dragon to guide them, they fly across moonlit lands to reach the highest mountains in the world.
Along the way, they discover extraordinary new friends in unlikely places, and a courage they never knew they had. Just as well, for the greatest enemy of all is never far behind them – a heartless monster from the past, who's been waiting a very long time to destroy the last dragons on earth.
A big-hearted story of heroism, friendship and adventure.
“... a magical story that will leave you wanting more ... Unputdownable ... I give it 110 out of 5 stars!”
