This book is about how humans are invading the dragons' land. They need to find a new place. A dragon named Firedrake goes on a quest to find the Rim of Heaven. A brownie goes with him. On their way they meet a boy named Ben and also a super villain named Nettlebrand. This group meets a sea serpent that helps them travel. They meet a djinn with 1,000 eyes. He gives them clues about the Rim of Heaven. Along the way they also meet a dragonologist who helps them. Will they find the Rim of Heaven? Read the book to find out!

I think this book is good because it has lots of adventure and it's exciting. My favorite part is when Nettlebrand melts. I like this part because he finally got what he deserved! My favorite character is Ben because he is nice.

I recommend this book for 2nd grade and up because it has some long and hard words. It is a really great book and I think you should read it to your kid.
