Liz Flanagan’s Dragon Daughter, which won both the Leeds Book Award and the Calderdale Book Award, has been a firm favourite. But. Wait ’til I tell you that the second book of the series, Rise of the Shadow Dragons, is due for publication in May 2020.
And to top that off, My Book Corner can exclusively reveal the cover for Rise of the Shadow Dragons, illustrated by Angelo Rinaldi and designed by Alison Gadsby.
I’m loving the energy and fierceness of Rinaldi’s illustration.
And if that wasn’t enough… we are holding a great giveaway over on our Twitter account, where you could win a signed copy of Dragon Daughter, book 1 in the series.
Rise of the Shadow Dragons is the exciting follow-up to Dragon Daughter for middle grade readers. Jowan has only ever wanted one thing: a dragon of his own. He has waited for this moment for as long as he can remember. But the Hatching Day ends in heartbreak, shame and disappointment, with Jowan in self-imposed exile, his dream in tatters. Jowan’s adventure is only just beginning. A chance meeting with another outcast, Winter, and an astonishing discovery could lead him to exactly what he has always wanted. He needs to act fast though – a volcano is stirring, battle lines are being drawn and his world is in flames.
Can’t wait to see this one fly on to the shelves in May!
