Synopsis

An all-consuming story of revenge, redemption and dragons from the twice Carnegie Medal-winner Patrick Ness.



"On a cold Sunday evening in early 1957, Sarah Dewhurst waited with her father in the parking lot of the Chevron Gas Station for the dragon he'd hired to help on the farm."



This dragon, Kazimir, has more to him than meets the eye. Sarah can't help but be curious about him, an animal who supposedly doesn't have a soul but is seemingly intent on keeping her safe from the brutal attentions of Deputy Sheriff Emmett Kelby.



Kazimir knows something she doesn't. He has arrived at the farm because of a prophecy. A prophecy that involves a deadly assassin, a cult of dragon worshippers, two FBI agents - and somehow, Sarah Dewhurst herself.



From the bestselling author of the Chaos Walking trilogy comes a heart-stopping story of fanaticism, hope, bravery and impossible second chances, set in a world on the very brink of its own destruction.



"Exhilarating and heart-stopping." Russell T Davies



"Gloriously original and unpredictable ... Mind-bending in the best possible way." Observer



"A clever, complex and completely engrossing story." The Times



"[An] extraordinary story of fate, power and redemption ... He is a remarkable talent." Daily Mail



"Ness shows that although monsters exist in every world, many wish to overcome them; and even in the smoking ruins of civilisation, there is room for hope." Guardian



"Revenge, redemption, the Cold War and dragons. Another great tale from the master with the best opening line of any book this year." Simon Mayo



"You can always rely on Patrick Ness to surprise you, and this beautifully written urban fantasy doesn't disappoint ... an immersive, rewarding read." Independent



"Never less than gripping ... full of charm, intriguing characters and awesome, cinematic set-pieces." SFX



"An incredibly touching, powerful and startling read." Female First



"A provocative Cold War-set tale of dragon worshippers, parenthood, and the apocalypse." Entertainment Weekly



"Gripping until the end." Irish Times
