Profile Picture

Dragonhaven is a first-person narrative story of a teenage boy who lives at a dragon preserve. Most of human society doesn't think much of dragons, so they're no longer around in most of the world. In Dragonhaven, Jake rescues an orphaned baby dragon. He raises the dragon, and realises that dragons are much more than most of the world seems to think. The entire book is written in Jake's voice--the voice of a teenage boy.
