Dragonkin Book One, Wyvernwood - Bailey Robin Wayne
THE FIRST VOLUME OF A MAJOR FANTASY TRILOGY.
“Dragonkin follows admirably in the tradition of Watership Down, Redwall and other fantasies in which creatures heroically face obstacles with the best qualities of their breed. The world of Dragonkin ratifies Robin Bailey's Nebula Award nomination by presenting a fantasy of the highest order. Miss it at your peril!” —John Vornholt, Bestselling author of The Troll King
The time of the dragons has passed, and a New Age is coming—one dominated by a race called “Man.” Wyvernwood, a deep and mysterious forest in the land of Engmar, is the last known refuge for the descendants of the great and majestic dragons that once ruled the skies. And with them have come most of the remaining mythological and magical creatures of the world.
But there is no stopping the gradual encroachment of Men. It is clear to all the creatures of Wyvernwood, especially to the dragons, that if they are to survive, a new home and refuge must be found. Somewhere lost in the dangerous outer world, prophecy says, are three ancient artifacts called the Diamond Dragon, the Glass Dragon, and the Heart of All Dragons. When the three are united once again, they will point the way to a new home. Yet who will dare to seek such a place?
Harrow, Chan, and Luna are three young dragon triplets—two brothers and a sister, born of the same nest. Prophecy says that one of the three will rise to lead the dragons to a new home—but which one?
