‘Here Be Dragons’ is a fabulous fantasy adventure tale holding hands with an enticing romance. Ellie Morgan is 16, she lives on the edge of Snowdon, texts her friends and helps her mum as a support member for the mountain rescue team, she is stubborn, loyal and has caught the eye of a strange boy. As the menacing hidden world of Snowdon sweeps ever closer to Ellie, there are times when she makes some risky and potentially perilous decisions and I wanted to hold her back, to shout out a warning to her. Sarah Mussi has written an intriguing mix of contemporary and ancient, and they balance together beautifully. There are translations of Welsh where necessary and a map of the Snowdon area at the front of the novel. This is Book One of ‘The Snowdonia Chronicles’ and with battling dragons, ancient curses and a thoroughly modern heroine, I look forward to the next in the series. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Here be Dragons by Sarah Mussi

Ellie Morgan wants a boy who's all hers. Just for once, it would be nice to meet someone that Sheila (the cow) hadn't got her claws in to.A remote farmhouse on Mount Snowdon is hardly the ideal setting for meeting anyone - unless, of course, you count her best friend George or creepy Darren (which Ellie doesn't). But when a boy, glimpsed through the mist and snow, lures her up to the Devil's Bridge, Ellie realises the place she knows so well still has its secrets ...The stronger her feelings for this strange boy become, the more she is in danger: a battle as old as Snowdon itself has been raging for centuries and now Ellie's caught in the middle. Something has left its lair. It's out there stalking her. Who ever said true love was easy?
