Description

Twelve-year-old Liam Finley doesn't expect anything good when he is forced to move from Dublin to his stepfather's large country house on the edge of the wild woods. But after the first night there, Liam abandons his fears of dreary boredom when he discovers that fairy tales haunt his new home. Has he truly discovered a dragon egg? The house's old blind gardener Michael Moran claims to know Liam's secret destiny, which lies in an enchanted Otherworld. He says Liam is the next Guardian of the Gold Breathers, a champion of dragons. Time is not on Liam's side. Can he complete his three tasks to prove himself as Guardian before the paths close between his world and the Guardian's land? Liam wants to believe the mysterious tales of Michael, but should he instead seek shelter in the practical kindness of Hannah, the housekeeper who calls Michael's stories "rubbish"? Liam's heart tells him to trust the things of magic, but it's the humans he can't be sure about. Themes in this story include losing a parent, family relationships, dealing with guilt, overcoming challenges, facing your fears, and standing up for what is right, even when it costs you something.show more
