The reviews are coming in!

“...fresh mythical depictions of dragons and fairies (fae) weave their magic on the mind in an enchanting, page-turning way. Intertwined concepts such as facing fears, growing up, and fitting in are well-suited to the intended audience and allow the reader to relate and connect well with Bradley. The story is carefully plotted with an intensity that builds and unfolds with talented pacing.”
- The Children's Book Review

“Despite its magical elements, Bradley’s quest matches well with every adolescent’s need for self-understanding, coming to terms with their family, and finding a life path. His leap into maturity is especially well handled: The odyssey is both suspenseful and deeply moving.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“A compelling cast of characters with rich backstories round out this fantastical story of a scared kid learning to stand up to bullies and be true to himself.”
- Booklife (review includes spoilers)

“Magic, mystery, family secrets, and danger abound in this fast-paced, coming-of-age fantasy novel—the third book by author Patrick Matthews centered around dragons. The novel teems with drama from the first page, and readers will be swept up by intrigue and action.”
- Children's Book Review
