LoveReading View on The Dragon Whisperer

Silver medal Winner at the International Moonbeam Children's Awards 2013 for Best Book Series & shortlisted for the Scottish Book Award 2010.

A delightful, frothily fanciful story full of dragons, superstitions, epic battles and the kind of adventure that becomes the stuff of legends. Eleven year old Quenelda’s father is Commander of the Stealth Dragon Services and all her life she has longed to join him in the desperate fight against the hobgoblins. But no girl has yet won a place in the Stealth Dragon Services Battle Academy on Dragon Isle. Can Quenelda, with her very special skills, be the first?


The Dragon Whisperer Synopsis

Quenelda has always had a magical bond with dragons, and her greatest wish is to fly one and fight alongside her father in the war against the hobgoblins. Root, on the other hand, wishes only to avoid the fearsome creatures, so the role of Quenelda's esquire is the last thing he needs. But an unexpected friendship is forged, and when Dragons Dome is besieged by a deadly plot, this unlikely duo must find a way to defeat the dark forces. Epic battles, whispered legends and soaring magic combine in this breathtaking debut fantasy, with black and white illustrations by David Wyatt.

The Dragon Whisperer is the first in the Dragonsdome Chronicles which is followed by Flight to Dragon Isle and continues with Dragon Lords Rising.
