Book overview: Myths have long held that darning needles are nothing more than the Devil’s own mouthpieces. In exchange for being transformed from dull, gray, wingless grub bodies into beautiful winged dragons, they carry the Devil’s evil whispers to the ears of men, women, and little children everywhere. Nigel is the largest, strongest, and brightest blue dragonfly ever to emerge from the water and the first to break this pact. He defies the Devil’s minions and refuses to play part, but can a simple, single darning needle hope to stand against ol’ Scratch himself and change the fate of all his kind?
