Every twenty-five years, the king of Gerbera is eaten by a dragon.
It is tradition.
A deal's a deal, after all. One king every quarter-century, and in exchange, the dragons leave the villages of Gerbera alone. But when the king dies on Dragon Day, the Fates choose a new replacement--Blue, the twelve-year-old stable boy. Everyone's certain it's a mistake. Blue doesn't even have a proper name, let alone the proper skills to fight off any dragons. To make matters worse, when Blue reaches Dragon Mountain, he learns instead of being eaten by a dragon, he must become one.
In order to save the world.
With the aide of his reluctant, acrophobic dragon rider, the new dragon, Blue, works out the whole flying thing to race to the other side of the world, where war is breaking out at the hand of the madman, Chancellor Cudek. Blue soon meets a pair of unlikely allies: a girl who's wanted for treason after her new Magic's run off, and an enemy soldier boy who can't decide which side he's on, at the risk of his family's safety.
As the first war cannons fire, Cudek's found a new way to steal forbidden Magic and put all the dragons to sleep. Bound together by the Fates themselves, the four new maybe-friends must each face their own demons and find the will to trust one another before their world is torn apart. In order to defeat Cudek's army, Blue and the others must each find the courage to play their part--before Cudek puts the dragons to sleep permanently.
Told in multiple points of view (with an emphasis on Blue's story), DRAGONBOY BLUE is 65,000 words of a coming-of-age MG fantasy, written as a stand-alone novel with series potential. It would likely appeal to fans of THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON, THE RANGER'S APPRENTICE series, and the KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES series.
