Peter Clark can build a robot from scratch and pick a lock in two minutes or less. But he can’t figure out why his mother left or why his grandma refuses to talk about her. When Uncle Dominick shows up on Peter’s twelfth birthday with a letter that hints at answers and an incredible story about dragons, Peter follows him, determined to find out the truth about his mother’s disappearance.
What he finds is a reality far different from what he ever could have imagined – where dragons live in hiding, hunted by poachers for their magical parts, and a small group of men and women work tirelessly to protect them. These are the Dragon Defenders. Peter’s uncle is one. So was his mother. Now it’s Peter’s turn.
I recieved a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I enjoyed this novel, it was different and a nice quick easy read. I never felt confused and I liked the characters. The story progressed nicely and was easy to follow.
I love the idea that there is more to the story than anyone yet knows, not even the dragon defenders know all it it. Much more to discover in the next one.
Peter was a great main character, we learned with him, which I always love, he was adventurous and helped his new friends even when they had done wrong. Even when his world is turned upside down he does what he feels is right.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series and will be reading more from this author.
4 out of 5 stars
