QUEST MAKER

The Last Dragon Charmer #2

Synopsis:

First sent to slay a dragon, now he must make a pact with one...


When mysterious magic transported Caden and Brynne from the Greater Realm to seemingly normal Asheville, North Carolina, they were shocked to discover it was home to the most dangerous villains ever banished from their homeland. And that a great and powerful Elderdragon rules them all.


Now they suspect that dark forces are conspiring on both sides of the magical divide between their world and this one. The Elderdragon gives out a quest: uncover the dangerous plan and protect the Greater Realm from banished villains hungry for revenge. Because if the villains find a way home before Caden and Brynne can, everyone they love may be in danger.


With its perfect blend of wit, action, and heart, Quest Maker will captivate readers young and old, and remind them of what it truly means to be a hero.

When I was younger, I’d listen to music and roller blade in circles. Sometimes, I would get up at dawn so I could listen to music while I’d swing back and forth on my swing set. Eventually, the wheels fell off my rollerblades  and my swing chain broke from overuse. So now that I’m all grown up,  I like to listen to music and walk in circles.

“McKay juxtaposes hoary fantasy tropes against 21st–century reality with verve. A sometimes–amusing, sometimes–thrilling, and always entertaining sequel that hints that math might be used for evil and the mystery lunch might pack a deadly surprise.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“McKay does a fine job of building both of Caden’s worlds and populates them with a diverse array of sinister and heroic characters…[a] continuation of a series that fantasy readers will enjoy.” (School Library Journal)
