Rise of the Dragon Moon

By: Gabrielle K. Byrne

Cinematic pacing, gorgeous worldbuilding, and lush prose will immerse readers in this coming-of-age adventure in which a fierce girl tackles insurmountable odds with wit, strength, and heart.

The Queendom of Gall stands alone in a frozen world, paying an annual tithe to the ancient Dragons that offer the land its only heat. When dragons kidnap the Queen, Princess Toli decides to brave the frozen landscape to rescue her mother. But it will be more treacherous than Toli could have imagined—snow leopards are on her trail, and dragons stalk her. For they cannot allow Toli to reach Dragon Mountain, where long held secrets await.

Toli will need the help of her sister, her best friend, and the unexpected kinship of a baby dragon to save her mother and determine the future of Gall.

Princess Toli is heir to a frozen Queendom at the mercy of voracious dragons who must be paid a tithe each year in order to avoid bloodshed. Yet blood was shed when Toli was younger—her father was killed by dragons in front of her, and Toli’s hatred of them burns as bright as the fire in the dragons’ mouths. Inexplicably, the Dragon Queen her Princess Toli is heir to a frozen Queendom at the mercy of voracious dragons who must be paid a tithe each year in order to avoid bloodshed. Yet blood was shed when Toli was younger—her father was killed by dragons in front of her, and Toli’s hatred of them burns as bright as the fire in the dragons’ mouths. Inexplicably, the Dragon Queen herself snatches Toli’s mother and whisks her away into the Dragon Mountain, throwing the Queendom into panic. Do the dragons want war? Peace? Or something else? It’s up to Toli, along with a baby dragon she found hidden in a cave and two of her closest friends, to embark on a dangerous journey into the depths of the Dragon Mountain to uncover truths hitherto unknown. A heavily articulated fantasy middle grade offering that may very well have readers rooting for the dragons, who seem to seethe and swirl off the pages. Fans of Erin Hunter’s “Warriors” series will enjoy the world-building of this quest-driven tale.
