What happens when an evil black dragon becomes your ally?

Snatched from the street by a young black dragon, Satia seems destined to end her life as a snack. But her position as a menu item quickly changes when her black dragon captor runs into two young red dragons and a wanna-be Dragonlord. In a quick twist of events, the black dragon is transformed into an ordinary teenaged boy. Always one step ahead of their pursuers, Satia makes a bargain with her captor: her life in exchange for her help. But now she must live up to her end of the bargain. With no magic and only the strength of two humans, how will Satia outwit the Dragonlord and his minions?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 6-8

Satia, a girl raised by thieves, is in the wrong place at the wrong time when she is kidnapped. Septimus, the dragon who has snatched her, is transformed into a boy by his mother's magic in an effort to save him from the High Dragonlord Thordane's army, and she is taken captive. Septimus and Satia strike a bargain: he will help her return home if she will help him free his mother from Thordane's grasp. While the book is packed with magical creatures and exciting battles, it is weak on characterization. The strongest one is Satia, who uses her skill at lying to talk their way out of many a tricky situation. With short chapters and accessible language, this story will appeal to young fantasy lovers and is a good choice for reluctant readers.-Michele Capozzella, Chappaqua Public Library, NY
