As soon as she is old enough to join, fourteen-year-old orhan Ileth runs away to the ancient human-dragon fortress to become a novice dragoneer. There, she has to fight her rich peers for her place in the world, and soon she is sent away to look after a sickly old dragon with a mysterious past. But even that is nothing compared to what she must face when she is forced to take the place of a dead dragoneer and care for his imprisoned dragon in enemy lands. From the author of the Age of Fire series, NOVICE DRAGONEER is a classic coming-of-age story for dragon fans old and new.
