All was still in the valley of the dragons. Mist had drifted in from the sea nearby and was clinging to the mountains. Birds twittered uncertainly in the foggy damp, and clouds hid the sun.
A rat came scuttling down the slope, fell head-overheels, tumbled down the moss-covered rocks and picked herself up again.
‘Didn’t I say so?’ she muttered crossly to herself.’ Didn’t I tell them?’
Snuffling, she raised her pointy nose, listened, and made for a group of crooked fir trees at the foot of the highest mountain.

Along the way, they discover extraordinary new friends in unlikely places, and a courage they never knew they had. Just as well, for the greatest enemy of all is never far behind them – a heartless monster from the past, who's been waiting a very long time to destroy the last dragons on earth.
