Dragons and Puberty

When Marc hits puberty, something inside of him starts to change. The first thing he notices is that heat doesn't hurt him. No burning stoves, no fire, nothing. He talks about it with his friend and, like any other 11-year-old boy, they're both so excited because they think he's developing superpowers. However, there's so much more to it than that.

Steve, a new kid, introduces him to Victor and Marc learns there's more to him than he could ever imagine. He has dragon blood within him that's been dormant for seventy-seven generations. But humans fear dragons or desire their blood for healing. Because of this, dragons are being hunted and Marc finds himself in the middle of a centuries old feud between dragons and humans.

DRAGONKYN reads more as middle grade than young adult, but it's full of action and is a new take on dragon stories. I liked how it all starts at puberty, when the main thing Marc should be worried about is the change of his voice. Instead, he's developing powers and learning exciting secrets.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of fantasy and dragons and for those who like an easy read that's full of action.
