The Third and Final Dragon Book

DragonGoldFrontcoverI’m thrilled to announce that Firefly Press have asked me to start work on the third and final book in my Dragon trilogy. This one will be called Dragon Red.

Best-selling Dragon Gold was highly recommended by the Tir-na-nog prize and has had probably the best reader review I’ve ever had, from Milo Jackson aged 8, who said:

I was dazzled by this story.  It is amazing.  I’ve never read a better book in my life!  It’s the best story a boy could read!  I’ve put Dragon White on my Christmas list.

The dragon series is set in modern day Wales and follows the exploits of Harri.  While working on a school project to design a model dragon that can fly for 10 seconds, he is given a dragon egg. He is warned that dragons can be quite a handful. The warning proves to be true – keeping a pet dragon a secret is not an easy task.

Two other characters loom large through the trilogy. The first is Ryan’s Dad. Ryan maybe Harri’s best friend, but Ryan’s Dad has a need to win even if it means battling against a ten year old boy!

The second character is Imelda. Is she really a witch? She’s not a flying broomstick, horror film type Dragon-White-book-cover-v1ewitch, but she certainly knows the old ways and how to make potions that work!

Book 2, Dragon White, came out last autumn and left us with two dragons imprisoned in St Gertrude’s Tower. Two frustrated, locked up dragons can only mean trouble and there is going to be a lot of that in the final book!

Start reading them now so you’ll be ready for when Dragon Red comes out next spring. If you have read them and loved them, then a review on Amazon would be hugely appreciated! ?

Also available as Kindle downloads.

I will be in Cardiff on Saturday with my publishers, Firefly Books. I’ll be reading from my Dragon books, showing how to draw dragons and signing books. Come for such and stay for stories and illustration from the wonderful Laura Sheldon, Dan Anthony and Huw Aaron. It’s going to be a wonderful day.Firefly-Storytelling-A4-Poster-v2
