Deadweed Dragons: The Complete Series Publisher's Summary
Life and death is a delicate balancing act - and only the brave survive.
Dragon eggs are disappearing from the High Mountains aeries. The South Kingdom seeks to replicate the dragon riders of Torvald to stem the Deadweed that strikes out like living beings. They’ll pay the Dragon Traders handsomely for every egg they capture, for only dragon fire has proven effective at turning back the invasive plant.
Until the deadly scourge magically returns with a vengeance.
From the moment 15-year-old Dayie washed ashore as an infant, everyone recognized she was different. Animals took to her instantly. Wounds healed, and plants grew larger in her presence. But after she’s blamed her for the vicious Deadweed attack, the villagers sell her to the ruthless Dragon Traders for fear of her powers and mysterious origin.
When Dayie makes the dangerous mountain climb and steals a dragon egg, she winds up with more than she bargained for when the dragon hatches and bonds with her before she can return. She’s forced to hide the hotheaded young dragon or risk losing him to merciless patrols or the Deadweed creeping ever southward.
But he’s soon discovered when the Deadweed attacks and their rescuer reveals the magic behind the ever-spreading menace. Now, Dayie must either give up her dragon or take her place in the Training Hall of Dagban, where bonding is misunderstood and discord between dragon and rider reigns.
In order to embrace her destiny, Dayie must find balance in this epic dragon fantasy.
They must either stand together, or the Kingdom will fall.?
The combination of Dayie’s magic and dragon’s fire has halted the advance of the Deadweed. But it is not defeated. Now, a new enemy lurks on the horizon. Water Wraiths sweep in from the sea, cutting their way inland, and assisting the invading plant’s onslaught deeper into the land.?
Killing everyone in their path.
The new strategy against the Deadweed has proven effective, but Dayie grows weaker each time she uses her powers. It can only be a temporary fix. When she and her dragon Zarr are invited to train with the High Mountains’ Dragon Riders, Dayie eagerly accepts the opportunity. But it’s far from a warm welcome as the tight-knit riders of the High Mountains distrust the outsider and her unusual power.
When the High Mountains leader suggests a compromise, a schism in the ranks threatens to tear the group apart. The loyal few must convince both dragons and riders of the Southern Kingdom to join forces against the Water Wraiths.
But Dayie won’t be much use to them if she can’t figure out how to balance her magic usage and avoid depletion.
To survive the growing menace, the Dragon Riders must set aside the things that divide them and unite.
Before it’s too late...
Their only hope for their future is to unravel her past.
The Southern Kingdom is overrun with Deadweed and what remains lies scorched by dragon’s fire. Plagued by the choking menace and targeted by attacks from deadly Water Wraiths, Dayie has no choice - master her magic or succumb to it. But when she and the Dragon Riders seek help from neighboring Torvald, they find a kingdom under siege and come to a heart-wrenching realization.
They will not win the fight.
The only option to restore the wasteland that was once their home is for Dayie to travel to a mysterious site that may hold the key to her birth and the tremendous power that drives the Water Wraiths. But what she discovers is more terrifying than the enemies she already faces.
Armed with a link to her past and the song of the sea in her heart, Dayie must confront the truth of her birth in order to wield the full strength of her magic against powerful and untamable foes.
Before all hope is lost.
