Known and loved by readers for her adventure stories wrapped around some of history's most fascinating and turbulent times, Karleen Bradford has this time written a rich and multi-layered fantasy.

On one level, Dragonfire is the action-packed story of Dahl, a stable boy who must conquer the evil Usurper to regain his kingdom. At another level, Dragonfire represents a boy's struggle to come to terms with himself - including his other, more disturbing side. Full of dragons, demons and believable, multi-dimensional characters, Dragonfire is an unputdownable read.

"Dahl's final battle with The Usurper is one of the most thrilling encounters with the shadow in children's literature ... Dragonfire offers an unforgettable experience of initiation." - Maclean's

"...an intelligent and entertaining fantasy for young readers." - Quill & Quire (starred review)
