The Harry Potter of the Dragon World.
Julia Suzuki weaves a delightful tale of being different, getting bullied for it, and still becoming comfortable enough in your skin to be yourself; and she did it all with dragons. Though I still have a ton of questions (mostly about the Hudrah and their basket), I was instantly drawn into the world of Dragor and the daily lives of dragons. I hope to read more of Yoshino and his adventures.
Here Be Dragons...Hidden in a mist-filled valley, far away from the habitation of man, live the last of the world's dragons. Divided by clan but united by the need to conceal themselves from humankind, these creatures, supposedly of myth and fairy tale, live ordinary lives, while ever aware that discovery will almost certainly be their undoing. Centuries ago, a great war spelled the end of their slavery to mankind. But in separating themselves from the rest of the world, the dragon clans have paid a heavy price. There is an emptiness in the Land of Dragor that did not exist before, and all the elders feel it. Disharmony runs rife. The dragons have vowed never to leave Dragor, but the youngest of them grow restless and superstitions abound. So when a strange egg is laid, all fear what will come of it. Could Dragor be about to meet its saviour? Or its destroyer?
