Poignant and incredibly powerful,
Ness not only entertains but leaves
us deep in thought.
Yesterday, a Dragon kidnapped me
from my cage in a zoo.
Stolen from her jungle home and sold to a zookeeper, Pip knows only a world behind bars, a world in which a Pygmy warrior and her giant ape friends are a zoo attraction. She dreams of being Human. She dreams of escaping to the world outside her cage.Then, the Dragon Zardon kidnaps her into a new life. Pip rides Dragonback across the Island-World to her new school - a school inside a volcano. A school where Humans learn to be Dragon Riders. But this is only a foretaste of her magical destiny, for the Dragon Assassins are coming. They have floated an Island across the Rift and their aim is nothing less than the massacre of all Dragons. Now, the courage of the smallest will be tested to the utmost. For Pip is the Pygmy Dragon, and this is her tale.
Dragon lore, shape shifting and a world of enchantment make for fine reading in The Pygmy Dragon by bestselling author Marc Secchia. This is Secchia at his best, spinning a paranormal narrative that is beautiful and moving, with a host of dynamic characters that will quickly find their place in the hearts and minds of his readers. Not least of all, young Pip, who makes a wonderful protagonist. Faced with the harsh realities of the world about her, she’s level headed and intelligent, but Secchia delivers her as a diamond in the rough with room to grow and it’s the evolution of her character which makes her so appealing. The most loved devices of fantasy are to be found within Secchias tale, but it’s his ability to create evocatively imagined worlds that make his books so endearing. There is rich detail when the plot demands it, but never at the expense of pace, whilst an overarching air of mystery prevails throughout.
A simply superb YA Fantasy with broad appeal, Secchia continues to make his mark on this ever popular genre and we have no hesitation in recommending The Pygmy Dragon as an exceptional read.
