When two strangers walk into Rafi’s village with thinly veiled threats against Rafi’s father and his weaving loom, a mysterious accident injures one of the strangers. Then, Mr. Flitch, the owner of a wearing factory in the city arrives, accusing Rafi of being “dragon-touched”, insisting that Rafi surrender to him. Instead, Rafi runs away and is befriended by Maud, who seems to know much more that’s Rafi. Together the two search for answers and maybe for — dragons!
Prineas writes a fun, light dragon story with enough action and adventure to please young readers.
