Marc Mondragon lives with his mom in Rifle, Colorado. He is always getting in trouble or having crushes on the pretty girls. He rides his bike and likes to spend time with his best friend, Luke. Strange things start to happen to Marc, he can’t get hurt, he heals fast, and he has strange dreams about dragons. Marc is one of the few people that has ancient dragon DNA. Things happen fast and Marc finds himself in a new world. He needs to trust new friends and learn about the new powers he has and he needs to learn about the power within himself that connects all dragons.

This was a great read, I could not put it down. It was a refreshingly clean book. The story was fast paced and full of interesting characters. Good and evil is clearly defined. I can’t wait to use it for Book Talks and introduce the students to this book. I read it in one sitting, cheering for Marc the whole time.
