Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke June 22, 2009

Posted by Aubri in Adventure, Fantasy, week 1.


My sister has been trying to get me to read this book for a long time and I finally got around to it. Dragon Rider follows the story of Firedrake, Sorrel, and Ben. Firedrake is a dragon who’s valley is being taken over by humans and Sorrel is a brownie who lives with Firedrake. They set of in search in The Rim of Heaven which is a valley that is said to have dragons living in it. Soon they meet Ben, a homeless human boy who comes along with them. They travel to many places in search of the Rim of Heaven until they finally get to the Himalayas. But through many unfortunate events Nettlebrand, a golden creature that looks like a dragon, has followed them and plans on hunting and killing all of the dragons on earth. Nettlebrand’s servent, Twigleg, befriends Firedrake and his group and travels with them as Nettlebrand’s spy but soon he begins to really like Ben and wants to stop working for his master. But their problem cannot be fixed that easily. The group with have to fight enchanted ravens, cold weather, mountain dwarves and eventually has to defeat Nettlebrand if they ever have a chance to find The Rim of Heaven. This is a really cool adventure story and is a really fun read. I recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy and magical creatures.
