E-arc provided by Edelweiss and HarperCollins. Thank you so much!

So, I'm a thirty-something woman who, now and again, loves her some MG fiction. Soooo, when I saw this listed, read the synopsis and got a good look at that cover, I knew I had to read it. I've been in a dragon mood lately, and this one satisfied my craving.

This story follows Rafi, who is different than other kids with his dark eyes and flaming red hair. When shifty things start happening to neighboring villages, some strange peop

I received this book as an ARC from the publisher and absolutely loved it!!

Such a unique and fun read! Very age appropriate as a middle school novel. Epic adventure with dragons galore!!

Rafi has always been a little different, but he and his father scratch out an existence in their small village, where his father weaves cloth. When two suspicious looking characters, Gringolet and Stubb show up at their door and talk about cottages in a neighboring village being set on fire, Rafi treats it as a threat. His angers flares... and Stubb is badly burned. This brings a visit from Mr. Flitch, the owner of the biggest factory in Skarth, who claims that Rafi is "

DRAGONFELL is a fun middle grade that addresses being different and not fitting in easily in the context of a fantasy with dragons. Rafi has always been a little different. He has trouble in school not being able to read, and his appearance is odd enough that the villagers are never quite sure of him. When some new people show up in town, they declare that Rafi is dragon-touched and must come with them.

Rafi does not want to g

"It feels like flying." From the first page of this middle grade adventure book the author has us right on the edge of the fell feeling the wind lift us up.

For the middle grade child, male or female looking to discover their own unique spark of talent and a place where they belong. This book takes us on a journey of self discovery in a time when Dragons are disappearing and industry is taking over.

Highly recommended as a good read.
Deena Lipomi
Rafi wonders what happened to the dragon that used to preside over his village until a fire strikes, he is accused of being "dragon-touched," and he sets off on a journey for his own safety while learning what happened to the dragons and what he really is. This somewhat predictable middle grade novel is a good choice for dragon lovers and those seeking a light fantasy.

I havered a bit between four and five stars, because I was pretty tense for a lot of the story and so couldn't actually enjoy it as much as I would have liked...but now I know how things work out, that won't be a problem when re-reading!

For a kids fiction novel it kept me interested but wished that it would go more in-depth with the dragons. Overall it was an okay read.
