Cover for 'Dragons' Truth'

When two young boys decide to skip school and seek adventure one day, they end up finding much more than they ever bargained for. More than the dragon and the mountain of riches they see at first, one of the boys finds the entire course of his life changed.

That boy, Larry, finds himself at the center of an adventure bigger than anything he'd ever dreamed of. And when Larry's continuing adventure begins to effect his schoolwork, and then his teachers and his entire school, Larry's not sure what he's gotten himself into. When the effects of that seemingly innocent day begin to spread throughout - and then to threaten - his entire nation, Larry is forced to take action or face the destruction of the entire human race as a result of a single day of hooky.

Join Larry as he grows from a little boy into the last chance for survival that humanity may have, and find out just how complicated a happy ending can become...

  • In which we hear the story of how Ghadshyk first met the human wizard Merle, long ago, and tried to explain the folly of learning the surface of a subject without working also to find its depth and background.

  • In which Larry gets a taste of the magical security system protecting Ghadshyk's home, Ghadshyk explains the often-overlooked relationship between studying Algebra in middle school and leading a long, happy, and fulfilling life, and then we hear the story of Ghadshyk's second meeting with Merle and learn that Merle is on the verge of either immortality or death.

  • n which Larry receives notes from his teachers about a meeting scheduled between them, his parents, and his dragon tutor, and then we hear the story of how Ghadshyk first revealed his scandalous relationship with a human wizard to the dragon community.

  • In which Larry's teachers reveal their intentions for his future education, and his parents reveal their continued disinterest, none of them realizing there's a dragon in the room.

  • In which Ghadshyk's influence on a few local teachers becomes a national phenomenon that threatens to bring the economy to its knees as people everywhere become passionate about going back to school, and Merle first reveals that an army of dragons is on its way to destroy America, then agrees to teach Larry everything there is to know about dragons, so that humanity will have some small chance against them.

  • In which Larry learns nearly everything humanity has ever put down in words, and the dragons invade America, with no man-made weapon even able to slow down their fiery path of efficient destruction.

  • The final episode, in which Larry confronts the dragon Bryyt, whose arrogance and hatred has poisoned dragon teachings for millennia while holding humanity back from enlightenment, and then shows Merle how sharing enlightenment and universal truth with humanity can only make things better, changing even violent criminals' lives in an instant.

I enjoyed the book, but I have a problem with the "all ages" rating. Over a hundred million people dying horribly is not a 'family friendly' concept. Nor is sneaking it into what starts as a story about a twelve year old boy. I enjoyed the philosophy. I think Gail, ...
At the two thirds mark I thought you were simply channelling the 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull' book. The Raid was a bit of a surprise given the frozen time bit. You had a real chance at some characters and you went way over the top with the philosophy of knowledge. Seems ...
I really enjoyed this book, and although at times it felt like an after-school special, it persevered in its message and really made me think. The only problem I had is that the end didn't feel like the end. There was no "The End" or anything, it feels very incomplete. ...
I made it to the end because there's a lot of good stuff here. However, starting with Episode Three, Ghadshyk became preachy and long-winded, and not only got away with it but was admired for it. That was hard to believe. Oddly enough though, the thing that annoyed me the ...
Great book concept and narration, it just begs to find out who the kid was though...
