The Dragon Hunter's Handbookby Adelia Vin Helsin
Few manuscripts survive from
Forget whatever you have learned of dragons, within these pages is the true tale of their cruelty and their savagery. Dragons are the original denizens of Hell itself, and once cast out of that fiery place by Satan they set about colonizing the earth, slowly mustering their strength in remote mountain strongholds of Kathmandu and Tibet.
Few manuscripts survive from the Middle Ages, and none so strange and perplexing as this journal of a young woman, found among the oldest papers in the library of the famous Van Helsing dynasty. Adelia of Trøenso is the family’s ultimate fighting ancestor, whose fate it was to save the world from a whirlwind of dragon flame. It was she who tied the Van Helsing destiny to fighting evil, a destiny that has afflicted the family since 1352.
Answering a plea for help, Adelia journeys to Tibet to fight the greatest foe humanity has yet faced, a powerful she-dragon known and her teeming brood. Armed only with fragments of dragon lore Adelia is forced to make an unholy alliance and seal her family's fate.
The Dragon Hunter's Handbook demonstrates the supreme skills and strategies needed to dispatch this cursed scaly breed, and chronicles Adelia's feud with the the most powerful adversary imaginable, the Ancient.

It is a famous book. I like all the details of the book. This book reminds me of a movie (Eragon) and of Spyro (the video game).
I loved this book. The dragons were realistic and the drawings were MAGNIFICENT! I read it two days! Jordan, 9yrs
My son who is 9 years old bought this book with his allowence money and has not put it down. He is always finding something new to show his family and friends. He always has a good imagination and this book allows him to imagine even farther.
I was given this book as a gift because I liked the previous books by this team, and it sat on my coffee table for over week before I even took a look at it. When I finally did, I was blown away! This book is not for little kids. It is edgy. It is the real thing!
The illustrations were so powerful I couldn't wait to turn the pages, and the story is brilliant! Hollywood could base a movie on this book and have a blockbuster, hands down. It's better than 90% of the crap out there sold to us as entertainment.
I heartily recommend this book to anyone, whether you enjoy fantasy or not. A ripping yarn!!
