In the ninth book, a Dragon Master named Mina arrives at the castle. She tells Drake and his friends that her kingdom in the Far North Lands was attacked by a magical Ice Giant. Everything there was frozen — but Mina escaped! Only a fire dragon can unfreeze her land and defeat the terrible Ice Giant. But Rori and Vulcan are no longer at the castle! Can the Dragon Masters find them in time to help their new friend?

{My thoughts} – In the last book we learned that the Dragon Masters had a visitor. Her name was Mina and she is a Dragon Master from the Far North Kingdom. She had come asking for their help to defeat a Ice Giant. She said that they needed a Fire Dragon to defeat the Ice Giant.

This came as bad news to Griffith and the remaining Dragon Masters. Rori the Dragon Master to the only Fire Dragon they had had run off with Eko and Neru. They decided that they would have to locate them and see if they could talk Rori into coming back to help them, help Mina. Mina went with them and they were able to get Rori to help.

When they got to the Far North Kingdom they learned they were in for more then they’d thought. There was so much ice everywhere, and it was so cold. Rori wanted to use her Dragon to melt all the ice, even the ice on the people. She didn’t think that she could cause a bunch of harm. Ana had her Sun Dragon use her sunlight to melt the ice off as many as she could during the battle. The Ice Giant was using Mina’s Dragon to battle them. Once they got control of Mina’s Dragon back the battle went much smoother.

They were able to do a lot by working together as a group. They just needed to play up to the strengths of each Dragon. This helped them in the end.

Towards the end of the book Griffith was told by King Roland that he was going to be replaced. But then Mina dropped a letter from the air for King Roland from her King. It changed the Kings mind. The best thing that came out of it is that Rori decided to stay and train with her friends, instead of going back to be with Eko.

I look forward to continuing this story in the next book!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
