The day Ansel's mother died was the last day that he spoke. His father was quick to remarry and start a new family. He was also quick to sell Ansel into the service of a dragon hunter when the time came. Ansel is perplexed when his new master tells him that there is no such thing as dragons, but understands that it is not his place to question. But when evidence at a mountain village points to the dragons being real, can Ansel summon enough courage to be a hero?

Author Philip Reeve has created a fantasy story that plays with the tropes of dragons. It starts off as historical fiction, but when the dragon is introduced, it becomes very clear that this is high fantasy at its best. An excellent junior book.

I loved this book so much that I finish it in around 3-4 days. I love the characters and how the main character was mute which now that I think about reading the book gave the author some thing to add to the end.
