King Furius is dead and his son has fled with only his father's sword and a pendant of the dragons. He thinks it might be OK when a older dragon rescues him, but poor Dagan hurts a young dragon accidentally and nothing he can do will win the dragons back. But Dagan refuses to give up and proceeds on the most dangerous trip anyone, human or dragon, might undertake. He is going to find a way to heal the young dragon if he dies trying and that is a definite possibility.
This is such a wonderful book and series, with the never ending action and stay up late with a flashlight under the covers reading to find out what happens next. If you are lucky enough to get the audio narrated by the wonderful Fred Wolinsky than you are really in for a treat, and it is well worth the money at 18 and a half hours long that will go by in a blink. Mr. Wolinsky can transfer you right in to Authia and you can be part of Dagan's small group, all with his voice, oh and what voices he can come up with for each character. This is such a wonderful story no matter which format for you choose, and I hope you love it as much as I do.
