It may be an imaginary world Prineas has created, but it’s an absolute truth she’s captured in this story: Different doesn’t mean dangerous. I love that line! And that is Rafi’s guiding belief in life. Join Rafi and new friend Maud in their search for dragons and so much more. This smoothly written fantasy novel parallels real life so brilliantly and just like Prineas’s last novel, has strong, steadfast, highly likeable main characters that I couldn’t help but fall in love with.— Susan
“An adventurous dragon tale that delivers an emotionally satisfying ending.” —Kirkus
Fly with the dragons in this stunning fantasy from Sarah Prineas, author of the acclaimed Magic Thief series!
Rafi Bywater is unlike anyone else. The people in his village don’t trust him because he spends too much time in an abandoned dragon lair. When a stranger, Mister Flitch, accuses Rafi of being “dragon-touched,” Rafi sets off to discover the truth about dragons—and about himself.
On his journey, Rafi befriends a brilliant scientist, Maud, who has secrets of her own. Together they search for dragons while escaping from a dangerous dragon hunter, engaging in a steam-engine car chase, and figuring out what Mister Flitch really wants with Rafi. And, oh yes, they do find the dragons.
Sarah Prineas delivers a sweeping adventure filled with glorious dragons of all kinds!
