Publisher’s Description of The Dragonet Prophecy (Graphic Novel)
“Not every dragonet wants a destiny … Clay has grown up under the mountain, chosen along with four other dragonets to fulfill a mysterious prophecy and end the war between the dragon tribes of Pyrrhia. He’s not so sure about the prophecy part, but Clay can’t imagine not living with the other dragonets; they’re his best friends. So when one of the dragonets is threatened, all five spring into action. Together, they will choose freedom over fate, leave the mountain, and fulfill their destiny — on their own terms.”
My Goodreads Review
Clay and the other four dragonets of destiny have grown up under the mountain, protected from harm so they can fulfill their prophecies destiny to end the war between the dragon tribes of Pyrrhia. Clay and the other dragonets can’t imagine life without one another so when one dragonet is threatened, they all escape the mountain together. From there they will begin to discover some of the truth about the war, the prophecy, and life in Pyrrhia. Through it all, the original five dragons will remain loyal to one another.
This graphic novel version was a delightful read, though I suspect it might be hard to understand the finer details of the story if you don’t read the original novel before the graphic version. I enjoyed the creative graphics and the way they were used to tell the story. The illustrations are well done and the dragons are fantastic characters.
My Rating: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
