School Library Journal

An inspirational new dragon series from d’Lacey. The Wearle are a group of dragons who have come to Earth, seeking the remains of an old colony and laying claim to the mountains as their new domain. To keep the unwanted out, they burn a boundary into the ground and set up patrols. The dragons are referred to as “skalers” by the Kaal, the tribal group that shares the area, and an uneasy existence is established between the two cultures. The people of the Kaal hate the dragons and fear the borderlines, except for Ren. Ren is different. He’s fascinated by the dragons and looks for as many chances as possible to observe their behavior. Eventually, he discovers a way to cross the boundary without being detected. Gabrial is a blue dragon who lost his father in the first colony. He is assigned to protect a young mother and her offspring but is punished when his failure proves fatal. Gabrial is now desperate to reclaim his honor. Soon, the paths of Gabrial and Ren collide in ways neither could ever imagine, as they dare to challenge the biases in both their worlds to show the commonality between man and dragon. A list of characters and a glossary are included to aid readers’ navigation through this new realm. VERDICT An exciting read for dragon lovers and fans of d’Lacey’s “The Last Dragon Chronicles” and Tui T. Sutherland’s “Wings of Fire” series.—Sabrina Carnesi, Crittenden Middle School, Newport News, VA
