Staff Reviews

A charming, lighthearted fantasy about found friends and being who you want to be... even if you don’t know who that is yet. I immediately fell in love with every character and found the story a perfect blend of heartwarming and humorous. It begins with witches and features royalty, a dragon exterminator who wishes he wasn’t, dragons galore, and even an evil wizard. It was everything I wanted it to be. Perfect for fans of the How to Train Your Dragon movies!

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Last Unicorn comes a new novel with equal amounts of power and whimsy in which a loveable cast of characters trapped within their roles of dragon hunter, princess, and more must come together to take their fates into their own hands.

Dragons are common in the backwater kingdom of Bellemontagne, coming in sizes from mouse-like vermin all the way up to castle-smashing monsters. Gaius Aurelius Constantine Heliogabalus Thrax (who would much rather people call him Robert) has recently inherited his deceased dad’s job as a dragon catcher/exterminator, a career he detests with all his heart in part because he likes dragons, feeling a kinship with them, but mainly because his dream has always been the impossible one of transcending his humble origin to someday become a prince’s valet. Needless to say, fate has something rather different in mind…
