All the ingredients of a perfect fantasy: adventure, magic, unusual heroes and of course…dragons
Kieran Larwood, author of The Legend of Podkin One-Ear
A dragon-shaped retelling of the darkest legend of them all!
In a world of dragons, song-spells, pipers and battles, Patch Brightwater is a boy in disgrace. Thrown in jail for playing a forbidden spell, he is no one’s idea of a hero. But only he knows a deadly truth: the evil Piper of Hamelyn is on the loose.
So it’s up to Patch — with the help of Wren, a girl cursed to live as a rat, and Barver, a fire-breathing dracogriff — to stop the Piper of Hamelyn unleashing the catastrophic End of the Skies.
Three accidental heroes versus one legendary villain — an epic adventure is born.
Perfect for fans of The Hobbit and Terry Pratchett — A Darkness of Dragons if the first fiery tale in Songs of Magic, an epic fantasy series inspired by The Pied Piper of Hamelyn.
