First in the series of Dragon Child quests we join Tia as she is abducted by Dragons who are out to seek revenge for the theft of their precious diamonds by the group of cruel witches who now rule the kingdom of Tulay.
Tia was born a human child but was raised by the dragons and considered herself a dragon child in all that she could do –other than being able to breath fire and other dragon things.

A band of travelling Traders come to Tia’s village and have much news about the terrible things the witch known as Malindra is doing to all the animals in the closest town called Drangur.
One of the young dragons does not like Tia and her friend dragon friend Fin very much and sets out to always torment both of them. One night she overhears Torkil and his friends talking about her. She finds out the terrible truth that her human mother is one of the dreadful witches who rule Tulay.
Tia decides that she will prove to Torkil and his friends once and for all that she really is a Dragon Child and makes plans to take back all the gems the six witches have in the possession.
She sets out to go to Drangur early one morning and finds she meets some very unusual people on the way who would rather she did not make it into Drangur.
Her dragon friend Finnn comes to her rescue and so the pair set out to get the first of the jewels back no matter what…….
And so the first of the six adventures begins which will delight the heart of every young girl from 6 to 10 years old who love dragons, demons, hero’s and of course adventure.
