Dragons of Darkness

Antonia Michaelis, Anthea Bell


From the author of “Tiger Moon”, this is the fantastical tale of the invisible prince Jumar who sets out to free his country, Nepal, from rebels, intertwined with the story of Christopher, a shy boy from Germany who is magically transported there to search for his brother, apparently kidnapped by the same rebels. Together Jumar and Christopher begin a dangerous journey through the wilderness of Nepal that turns into a journey of initiation. Fighting the beautiful but deadly dragons that beset the country, the two boys learn that in order to change the world they need to change themselves first.
