In the second book in the Dragon Kingdom of Wrenly graphic novel series, Ruskin, Cinder, and Groth are back for another exciting quest, this time to save a group of cursed shadow dragons!

A royal errand brings Ruskin, Cinder, and Groth to Shadow Hills, home to the most mysterious creatures in all of Wrenly—the shadow dragons. Legend says that shadow dragons are hostile to outsiders and cannot be trusted. But that’s not how it seems to Ruskin and his friends.

In fact, nothing is quite as it seems in Shadow Hills. The young dragons have been sent there by sinister forces that believe Ruskin is destined to rule over all of Wrenly. These same forces will do anything to prevent that from happening…even if it means putting the entire kingdom at risk. Will Ruskin and his friends see through the deception and learn who they can really trust before it’s too late?

In this second installment of Dragon Kingdom of Wrenly, Ruskin is on a royal errand to find lava rocks to stop a deadly firestorm from destroying the kingdom when he and Cinder find their way into Shadow Hills. Here the land and dragons are cursed. There is no color, and everything is a struggle, as if they are living underwater. The only dragon immune is Ruskin who remains scarlet.

Shadow Hills is a fast paced adventure quest that finds Ruskin back with his dragon friends of Crestwood. Cinder accompanies Ruskin to find the mystical lava rocks, but they are trailed by another dragon, jealous of their friendship. This dragon creates all sorts of mayhem for our heroes.

As I’ve come to expect with this series, the illustrations are just as telling as the words themselves, sometimes expressing more of the story to the readers. Early independent readers will delight in the fast-paced nature of the story and will love the playful nature of the dragons. Even my ten year old loves the stories, devouring them in one sitting. I highly recommend it!
