About The Book

Bradley’s Dragons

Written by Patrick Matthews

Publisher’s Synopsis:

The Hunters are Coming. The first time a hunter came for him, Bradley Nash was only nine years old. That was three years ago.

Now, he lives with his family in a Florida trailer park. He doesn’t remember the attack, doesn’t know anything about hunters, or dragons, or even magic.

As his twelfth birthday approaches, however, his peaceful life starts falling apart.

The hunters are coming, and if Bradley doesn’t figure out exactly who and what he is, everything he’s ever known will be destroyed.

“The novel teems with drama from the first page, and readers will be swept up by intrigue and action.” —The Children’s Book Review

Bradley’s Dragons is an amazing middle grade novel set in a world where sometimes people become dragons; sometimes they don’t, which makes for a very interesting family dynamic and hard choices. In some cases, family leave their non-hatching children with other families and never see them again. In Bradley’s family, he finds out they have done this many times before, but this time around with him and his younger sister, his parents are waiting to see if they hatch and will choose to continue to raise them even if they don’t. We find out there are four types of dragons in this world: swamp dragon, sky dragon, cave, and sea.

One of Bradley’s parents is a swamp, the other a sky dragon. Most of the book centers around Bradley trying to figure out how to hatch and trying to find his little sister’s best friend who goes missing. Some pretty exciting parts involve dragon hunters as well.

Bradley’s Dragons is an exhilarating story that will grip you by the first page and keep you reading right up to the end. The chapters are the perfect length for your average middle-grade reader, and they won’t be intimated by the size of the book or the number of chapters.
