Drake’s kingdom is in trouble — a terrible earthquake has destroyed Bracken’s crops! A magical Spring Dragon has the power to save the kingdom and regrow the crops, but he lives deep inside a secret fairy world. To find the Spring Dragon, Drake must pass a series of tests given by a Dragon Master named Breen. But the fairy world is full of confusing tricks and mysterious riddles! Can Drake save his kingdom?

{My thoughts} – Drake gets to go on his first adventure with Worm alone. He doesn’t get to take any of the other Dragon Masters or Dragons with him. He isn’t sure about it at first but he thinks if it can help save the Kingdom of Bracken then it is worth it.

When Worm and him arrive in Inis Banba it is nothing like Drake had imagined. He meets the new Dragon Master named Breen and she tells him that her Dragon Fallyn won’t meet with him unless he travels through the Fairy Mound alone. She goes with him for most of the journey, but she isn’t able to help him. He goes through many different tests and some tricks, but eventually he makes his way through to meet Fallyn.

Given that he is able to prove that he is pure of heart and that he doesn’t want to use Fallyn’s magic to cause trouble or chaos, Fallyn agrees to go back to Bracken and help.

This was a really nice addition to the series. I enjoyed meeting the new Dragon Master and Dragon. I enjoyed getting to know Drake and Worm more. I really like this series as it is really well written. The story and the illustration go together nicely.

I look forward to reading the next book in the series when it is released!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
