Have you ever imagined a world with dragons? Wyrmeweald is place where dragons live on Earth, but it is a threatening place for humans. Still, humans risk their lives to get rich by getting a Wyrme egg. They call themselves Wyrmekeith, and only a few of them came back from there. This story is about a teennager named Micah who went to Wyrmeweald unprotected to get a Wyrme egg to get rich and to win a girl he loves named Seraphita. However, a black cloud came over to his head as he walked in to the Wyrmeweald, and he was in danger quickly. He needed water badly, and he was really close to death, injured, and unconscious. Suddenly, when he was almost dead, a man helped him. He woke up and saw the man. He was in shock and pushed back, but the man calmly said, “No need to be scared, I will save you.” Micah thanked him, and he got water and drank it. The man walked to him and asked his name. Micah answered and asked his name, which was Eli. Micah quickly found out he is a tracker. Suddenly, pain came on unexpectedly, and blood came out of Micah’s injury like an army. Eli told Micah that he would take him to a woman called Jura who knows how to heal injuries. They moved on and got to Jura. When she saw Eli, she welcomed him, but when she saw Micah, she kept saying Wyrmekeith with a rude tone, but she still healed him. Micah quickly discovered that Jura is a Wyrne rider assassin who hates Wyrmekeith. She had a bad experience with them, and she thinks they are bloodthirsty people. However, Eli kept protecting Micah by saying he is not a Wyrmekeith. Eli and Micah became friends, and Eli told Micah if he doesn’t go with him on his journey, he is a Wyrmekeith. Micah was forced to follow him because he saved him, and he accepted, and they started their journey the next day. They went through tons of unexpected dangers, and on the way, they found a woman who was a Wyrme rider assassin called Thrace. They found out that bandits were going to steal an extremely rare Wyrme egg. Together, Micah, Eli, and Thrace went to fight back the evil bandits and protect the rare Wyrme egg, allowing it to hatch in its home. It was a sweet victory!
I looked at the books and found this one, and then I held it and read the summary of this book. I saw the word “dragon,” and I really like dragons, and I also like that it is a fantasy. I thought the book would be phenomenal, and it was after I finished reading the whole book. The plot was terrific, and the book used good words. Also, the way that the author wrote it made it better and better. I think the best part of it are the friendships and the fighting scenes because the author describes them with lots of emotions and action which made me excited. Then I checked the book on the internet and found out it is a series book. I told myself I am going read all of them. This book, I think, is good for people who are 6 grade or up because it had hard words and complex sentences. So now go buy it or borrow it, and sit down and read! I hope you, too, will have wonderful feelings reading this book. In the end, I hope Stewart and Riddell will continue making the series and make more books like this one!
