The Dragon's Pearl Trilogy
YA Contemporary Fantasy
The world against dragons. One girl against the world.
There are dragons in the Arizona Mountains, and only Alita Drake knows it. No one believed her at three years old when she stumbled across them during a family picnic. They certainly wouldn’t believe her now.
Not that she’s allowed to tell anyone anyway—her dragon, Yackros, made that clear. The other dragons can never know about the human who now visits their hidden forest, and humans aren’t supposed to know about dragons.
But nothing stays secret forever.
Now Alita must accept that she alone can save her dragon from the dark clutches of Ruxsiu, a false king acting as ruler. Finding the true dragon king can save her best friend, but it isn’t something she can do alone. She must convince her boyfriend to help despite his disbelief in dragons and trust a strange old librarian in the race to save the only relic that can fix everything—the dragon’s pearl.
Alita accomplished what she set out to do: save Yackros, free the dragon king, stop the pearl from being tainted.
But no action is without consequence.
With the pearl destroyed, Fyazum can't lead. War looms for the dragons, and while the king and Rohesia leave in search of answers, Alita must deal with problems at home—starting with explaining dragons to her parents, avoiding bullying at school, and moving on after Max. Yackros may be free, but Alita isn’t.
Although Séraphin was thwarted once, he is quickly regrouping, and his intention is clear. He will rule all dragons, no matter the cost. Alita must stop him, but the only ally she can find is one who threatens to capture her wounded heart, something Alita doesn't know if she's ready for.
Plagued by strange visions and still learning to control her bond with Yackros, Alita will have to find her inner fire, along with answers only the lost pearl can give, or risk losing everything as Séraphin takes the kingdom.
