About this ebook

Dirk is a budding boy wizard who hatched as a dragon and has a ring that turns him back into one. For his summer vacation, he's leaving Roman Britannia on a secret journey to tell the dragon who raised him she's free from a curse.

He doesn't realize he's being tracked by his worst enemy, the sorceress who abducted him as a baby and blames him for her husband's death. Treacherous Ethelda thinks Dirk has her fiendishly powerful wand and she'll do anything to get it back. The Roman Army wants the Wand of the Black Sphere, too, worried Ethelda will use it against them, and they're looking for Dirk, the last one seen with it. But Dirk's halfway around the world dealing with monsters and magic they couldn't imagine.

Packed with intrigue and humor, this final book in the illustrated Dragon Lad trilogy joins <em>The Thirteenth Egg</em> and <em>Tale of the Talisman</em> for spectacular storytelling.

I liked the book. Its great for middle schoolers and has all the elements to make it a fun read for 13 yr olds. I've not read the first 2.parts to this trilogy and its really recommended that one follows the story in right order. Part 1 and 2 deal.with Dirk our hero hatching from.a dragon's egg and his journey to find his human parents. The time period is set during the Roman period and there are references to Nero and Christ's crucification. The descriptions of the town and its archaeology, as well as the bathing houses commonly found during that period is really well done. Its a very informative book and capsulates life in Roman period well- their agriculture, travel, making weapons and their army life. It also talks about evils of indiscriminate killing of animals amd.to.look after our forests. This story takes off from Dirk finding and adjusting to his real human parents. He wants to take final journey to.meet his dragon.mother and pass on a message to her. Mak
