Publisher's Summary

Master storyteller and NYT best-selling author Chris d'Lacey has woven a brand-new epic fantasy with the story of the first dragons sent to Erth and how their fates became entwined with humankind's.

A Wearle of dragons set out on an expedition from their home planet and was never heard from again. Now a new Wearle, determined to find the first, has come to the place its creatures call Erth. Gabrial, who still has the blue scales of a young dragon, is eager to prove himself and to find his missing father. But when Gabrial causes an accident that results in a baby dragon going missing, he'll have to prove himself worthy of remaining with the Wearle at all.

Across the scorch line, most Hom, or humans, live in fear of the dragons. But a boy named Ren is too fascinated to stay away and will soon find his fate intertwined with that of the dragons. When conflict erupts between the dragons and humankind, Ren does the unimaginable, crossing into dragon territory. Will he be able to gain the dragons' trust and prevent an all-out war?

NYT best seller Chris d'Lacey sweeps listeners off on an extraordinary adventure bursting with majestic creatures and one boy with the heart of a dragon.

Not for the faint of heart

I groaned at first when the book starts with a long list of characters, foretelling a difficult listening. I listened twice. Despite arrogant stupidity among those in charge, dragons are saved by a human boy. This is NOT “How to Train your Dragon”. Lots of death. On to the next book.

Fascinating

I love Chris D’ Lacey’s work. I’m still working on reading his The Last Dragon Series. But jumped right into this and loved it! The character development, the clashes between dragons and the Hom and the dark eyes!! Just wonderful. I truly enjoyed this and look forward to reading the next book!
