Publisher's Summary

How does the world end? It ends in fire.

On a cold Sunday evening in early 1957, Sarah Dewhurst waited with her father in the parking lot of the Chevron gas station for the dragon he’d hired to help on the farm.

This dragon, Kazimir, has more to him than meets the eye. Sarah can’t help but be curious about him, an animal who supposedly doesn’t have a soul but is seemingly intent on keeping her safe from the brutal attentions of Deputy Sheriff Emmett Kelby.  

Kazimir knows something she doesn’t. He has arrived at the farm because of a prophecy. A prophecy that involves a deadly assassin, a cult of dragon worshippers, two FBI agents - and somehow, Sarah Dewhurst herself.

From the best-selling author of the Chaos Walking trilogy comes a heart-stopping story of fanaticism, hope and impossible second chances, set in a world on the brink of its own destruction.

Fair

I’m a big fan of Ness, but this is not as good as his other work. It falls a bit flat towards the end and tries to leave a forced opening for a sequel.

Enjoyable and worth your time

I like Patrick Ness. It's a shame he has his own back catalogue to contend with whenever I read his latest. How do you surpass greatness (Chaos Walking trilogy)! This is very good Self-contained but could be the start of a series. Audible, get Chaos Walking for us please!

Needs to be Rerecorded

The book is brilliant but the voice recording is so bad I couldn't get past the first 10 minutes.
