The first time a hunter came for him, Bradley was only nine years old. That was three years ago, and he barely escaped.
Now, he doesn’t remember them. He doesn’t know anything about hunters, or dragons, or even magic. As far as he’s concerned, he’s a regular kid living in a regular trailer park.
He’d better figure it out soon.
The hunters are coming and his world will never be the same.
A Note From the Publisher
"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 (critic's choice, 8/25/2020)
"Bradley's Dragons is a magical journey that has a great message on handling bullying. It was an exciting adventure that my son couldn't put down."
- Creative Child Magazine (winner of their 2020 Children's Book Of The Year award)
"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."
"This book is seriously awesome! 5 stars are rare for us, yet we'd give this one 7 if that were possible. Seriously, I could barely put it down - great characters, good plot lines, enough depth, and breadth to really get into it. And finally, a tale told fully that will have you biting your nails and turning pages as fast as you can."
