The Dragon Whisperer
|Series:||The Dragon Whisperer|
Quenelda has always had a magical bond with dragons, and her greatest wish is to fly one and fight alongside her father in the war against the hobgoblins. Root, on the other hand, wishes only to avoid the fearsome creatures, so the role of Quenelda's esquire is the last thing he needs. But an unexpected friendship is forged, and when Dragons Dome is besieged by a deadly plot, this unlikely duo must find a way to defeat the dark forces. Epic battles, whispered legends and soaring magic combine in this breathtaking debut fantasy, with black and white illustrations by David Wyatt.
Imagine you could talk to dragons...

Lucinda Hare was born in Scotland and spent her childhood years roaming the local woods with her dogs, imagining worlds where wolves, knights and dragons battled in deep forests. She now lives near Edinburgh with her husband, who competes for attention with a large menagerie of rescued cats, dogs, guinea pigs, rabbits, and escaped battery hens. Lucinda specialises in cruelty cases and animals with behavioural problems, and friends often comment that she can weave magic and talk to the animals - a real life 'whisperer'! The Dragon Whisperer is Lucinda's debut novel.
