LoveReading View on Dragon Rider

This a special 10th anniversary edition of Dragon Rider, a terrific magical adventure that will set your imagination off on a rollercoaster of emotions and ideas.  We were captivated and spellbound by the power of the story and the quality of the narrative and I’m confident that children from 8 upwards and adults too, will devour it.  You don’t have to be a fan of fantasy or of stories with dragons in it to love it.

A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher    To dream of flying is one thing, but to fly on the back of a dragon is a dream really worth having! Believe me, you'll have the journey of a lifetime with the marvellous characters on board, sharing what will seem like a thousand adventures, all rolled into one.
Brilliant!

Dragon Rider Synopsis

Firedrake, a brave young dragon, his loyal brownie friend Sorrel and a lonely boy called Ben embark on a magical journey to find the legendary place where silver dragons can live in peace for ever. Along the way, they discover extraordinary new friends and a courage they never knew they had. Just as well, for the greatest enemy of all is never far behind them - a heartless monster from the past who's been waiting a very long time to destroy the last dragons on earth.
