I’m very excited to announce the launch of my new middle grade series, Unlegendary Dragon! If you love Epic Zero, then I know you’ll love this series, too! The fantasy genre has always been a favorite of mine, and I had a blast putting a new spin on classic fantasy elements while bringing it up to date.
Here’s the description for book one, Unlegendary Dragon – The Magical Kids of Lore
From the bestselling author of Epic Zero comes a soaring new series about a misfit kid who is destined to protect the world as a mighty, legendary dragon!
12-year-old Connor Pendridge is moving… again. This time, his mom thinks their lives will be better in Lore, a sleepy island town off the coast of New England. Connor doesn’t want to start over at yet another new school, especially in a place as boring as Lore. But as he quickly learns, Lore isn’t as boring as it seems.
That’s because fantastic creatures appear that only he can see—from fairies at school to goblins in his front yard. Connor thinks he’s going crazy until a mysterious woman reveals his true destiny and hands him a dragon amulet containing the magic of Excalibur, the legendary sword of King Arthur. Now Connor must use the amulet to transform into a mighty dragon in order to stop an ancient, evil sorceress from conquering the world! Connor doesn’t know the first thing about being a dragon, but with the help of Merlin, his magical mentor, and his new friends who can turn into mythical creatures themselves, will he take flight as the legendary dragon of his destiny—or flame out as the most unlegendary dragon of all time?
Unlegendary Dragon is the first book in a hilarious, action-packed series that will entertain kids 8-12, reluctant readers, and adults. Unlegendary Dragon includes 8 stunningly illustrated character profiles and is perfect for fans of Percy Jackson, Wings of Fire, Harry Potter, and Fablehaven.
