Bradley’s Dragons

Written by Patrick Matthews

Publisher’s Synopsis: The Hunters are Coming

The first time a hunter came for him, Bradley Nash was only nine years old. That was three years ago.

Now, he lives with his family in a Florida trailer park. He doesn’t remember the attack, doesn’t know anything about hunters, or dragons, or even magic.

As his twelfth birthday approaches, however, his peaceful life starts falling apart.

The hunters are coming, and if Bradley doesn’t figure out exactly who and what he is, everything he’s ever known will be destroyed.

“The novel teems with drama from the first page, and readers will be swept up by intrigue and action.” —The Children’s Book Review
