Wizards are at war in this thrilling conclusion to the Dragonborn series, hailed as "reminiscent of Lloyd Alexander" by Publishers Weekly.

When diabolical wizard Ash escapes from her prison, the fate of the world falls to wizard apprentices Sam and Tamrin. But old magic is fading fast, and even with their faithful dragon Starback by their side, they may not be able to stop Ash before she razes their home.

Sam and Tamrin find an unexpected ally in Tadpole. Tadpole isn't a wizard or even a hero, and he only ventured aboveground to see the stars. But destiny has other plans for him. Tadpole must find the courage to fight Ash, or all the magic in the world could disappear forever.

The epic Dragonborn quartet concludes in this sweeping story that expertly combines classic fantasy sensibilities with fresh storytelling, and it is sure to appeal to fans of Angie Sage and Cressida Cowell.

Toby Forward is the author of the acclaimed Dragonborn series, which begins with the Carnegie Medal-nominated Dragonborn and continues with Fireborn, Doubleborn, and Starborn. He also wrote the picture book The Wolf's Story, the middle-grade novel Traveling Backward, and several other books for children in his native England. www.tobyf...
