Overview

Daniel and Beatrice Cook race to unravel the mysteries of the Dragon Prophecy — and save the world’s dragons from an evil that could destroy them.

Brother and sister dragonology students Daniel and Beatrice Cook are looking forward to returning to their studies with Dr. Ernest Drake and Erasmus, their half-dragon tutor. But what they learn is that the evil dragonologist Alexandra Gorynitchka, who is bent on controlling (or destroying!) all the world’s dragons, is searching for the fearsome Hammer of the Dragons, an ancient weapon that can kill hundreds of dragons in a single stroke. So it is up to Dr. Drake and the children to pursue her to the Lost Isle, where Alexandra is amassing a large army of enslaved dragons. There the siblings learn of the Dragon Prophecy, which says that the return of the Hammer of the Dragons can only be stopped by two children "wise beyond their years in the ways of dragons." Could Daniel and Beatrice be the children in the prophecy?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Desiree Solso
What is the S.A.S.D. you ask? Why it is the Secret and Ancient Society of Dragonologists. Dragonology students Daniel and Beatrice Cook, along with their mentor Dr. Drake and trusty young dragon, Torcher,set out on the final chapter of the dragonology chronicles. The final book in the series starts with a bang, when Daniel and Beatrice's house is set on fire, their parents are missing and they are kidnapped by the evil Alexandra Gorynytchka. Soon they discover her purpose is to rid the world of all dragons by finding and striking an ancient hammer that will instantly stop the heart of all dragons. Through mysterious and ancient clues, Daniel, Beatrice and Dr. Drake set off to save the dragons and to stop Alexandra. With the help of Koa, one of the only remaining dragons on the island, the eye of the dragon, and their own cunning the team of dragonologist find the hammer, only to discover that Alexandra was following them the entire time to lead her to the hammer. After a fierce battle over the open pit of an erupting volcano, with the help of more ancient dragons the hammer is destroyed. Soon after, Daniel and Beatrice are reunited with their parents and the fate of future dragons and dragonologists is changed in a surprising way. The book is filled with suspense and mystery. It has beautiful illustrations throughout. Many of the dragon names are complicated and hard to pronounce. Young readers who like to read about fantasy and dragons would be sure to enjoy this book. However, reading all four books in order would add to the suspense and mystery in the fourth book. Reviewer: Desiree Solso
