"Reminiscent of both McCaffrey's Pern books and Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain, this lively adventure will be just the thing for dragon lovers too young for Christopher Paolini's Eragon (2004). Mella and Roger are sympathetic, distinctive characters, and Thomson's richly descriptive writing creates a fantasy world readers will want to revisit." -Booklist
