A Wearle of dragons set out on an expedition from their home planet and was never heard from again. Now, a new Wearle, determined to find the first, has come to the place its creatures call Erth. Gabrial, who still has the blue scales of a young dragon, is eager to prove himself, and to find his missing father. But when Gabrial causes an accident that results in a baby dragon going missing, he'll have to prove himself worthy of remaining with the Wearle at all.



Across the scorch line, most Hom, or humans, live in fear of the dragons. But a boy named Ren is too fascinated to stay away, and will soon find his fate intertwined with that of the dragons. When conflict erupts between the dragons and humankind, Ren does the unimaginable, crossing into dragon territory. Will he be able to gain the dragons' trust and prevent an all-out war?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Jonathan Keeble launches into this tale with gusto, using a plethora of vocalizations that include screeches and roars. His urbane British accent gives the dragons a distinct air of majesty despite their ruthlessness…Keeble balances the tones of the diverse characters with crisp diction and consistency, making this first installment of a new series a treat for both the mind and ear.” AudioFile
“D’Lacey manages to make the implausible seem possible.” School Library Journal
“A rousing adventure with sweeping aerial action scenes and a tense mystery at its center.” Publishers Weekly
“The creative spin on the intersection of dragon history and prehistoric humans is interesting and the action engaging.” Kirkus Reviews
