LoveReading View on 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!
