This is an absolutely delightful book for adults and children alike. Young Yoshiko starts his new school, makes lots of new friends but starts to feel a little different from the other dragons when he begins to change colour every time he feels stressed. Not helping the stress is the local bully Igorr from another clan, a youngling that is often bullied by his own father. I actually liked the way this character grows throughout the story.
Yoshiko finds out he is destined to help save the land of the dragons and restore their lost crystals. Without spoiling anything the way in that Yoshiko learns of his destiny and the training he undertakes are again written so well. You can see every dragon character in your head and it’s easy to imagine this as a film.
The story is written in a way that makes the book flow really fast, I read the book in just a few days. A good story, strong characters what’s more to ask?
I would heartily recommend this book to anyone
