Product description

The final installment in Chris d'Lacey's NEW YORK TIMES bestselling Last Dragon Chronicles! Now in paperback! David Rain and the Pennykettle dragons embark on their final adventure. . . . On Earth, dragons and darklings are trapped in a bitter, unresolved conflict. But at the dawn of history, something is working to bring about a change. A mysterious force is rewriting timelines, turning what was once legend into startling reality. . . . Under the control of the wicked sibyl Gwilanna, the evil Ix have taken over and infected all life-forms with their Shadow, creating a darkling army. Voss, the leader of the army, has captured and imprisoned Gawain, one of the last dragons in existence, and is using him to seek a dark energy buried in the heart of the Earth. Desperate to stop the Ix, the Pennykettle dragons summon David and Rosa, two mysterious travelers from the future, for help. But together, are they powerful enough to prevent Voss and the darkling army from destroying the world AND restore life as it should be?

Review quote

Praise for the Last Dragon Chronicles: "Chris d'Lacey's writing is sometimes exciting and sometimes silly. But that seems in keeping with the worlds he created -- one that seems almost real and one that is beyond imagination." --THE WASHINGTON POST "D'Lacey's characters are realistic and engaging. . . . A page-turner." --THE HORN BOOK REVIEW "[T]he story, with its involving and thought-provoking plot full of clever little dragons, mystical polar bears, and spiritual and ecological aspects, will appeal to many fantasy lovers." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL
