The Ice Dragon is an enchanting tale of courage and
sacrifice for young readers and adults by the wildly popular author
of the #1 New York Times bestselling Song of Ice and Fire
series, George R.R. Martin. Lavish illustrations by acclaimed
artist Luis Royo enrich this captivating and heartwarming story of
a young girl and her dragon.
In the world of A Song of Ice and Fire the ice dragon was a
creature of legend and fear, for no man had ever tamed one. When it
flew overhead, it left in its wake desolate cold and frozen land.
But Adara was not afraid. For Adara was a winter child, born during
the worst freeze that anyone, even the Old Ones, could
Adara could not remember the first time she had seen the ice
dragon. It seemed that it had always been in her life, glimpsed
from afar as she played in the frigid snow long after the other
children had fled the cold. In her fourth year she touched it, and
in her fifth year she rode upon its broad, chilled back for the
first time. Then, in her seventh year, on a calm summer day, fiery
dragons from the North swooped down upon the peaceful farm that was
Adara's home. And only a winter child-and the ice dragon who loved
her-could save her world from utter destruction.
