            Scorch Dragons (Elementals, #2) (EPUB ebook)

            By Kaufman, Amie

            '[A] CLIFFHANGER ENDING LEAVE[S] READERS WANTING MORE' -- Kirkus on Ice Wolves After the fateful battle between the ice wolves and scorch dragons, Anders and his twin sister, Rayna, have been reunited. But there's no time for celebrating. Anders and his wolf friend Lisabet are hi...ding away in the mountains of Drekhelm under the watchful eye of the dragon high council. They are perceived as threats, and only the leader of the dragons can keep them safe.Then the temperature in Drekhelm starts to drop throughout Vallen, threatening the lives of the Scorch Dragons. Suddenly, the dragons suspect that the two young wolves are spies for their old pack-that they helped them steal a weather-altering artifact called the Snowstone. The artifact puts everyone including Anders' twin sister, Rayna, in terrible danger.Desperate to broker peace, Anders enlists the help of a few new flame-breathing friends to stop the wolves' next plan of attack. Together, these former rivals must go on a perilous journey to find the scattered pieces of the Sun Scepter, the only artifact that can counteract the Snowstone. Because if either device goes unchecked, all hope for a truce will be lost.New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman delivers the thrilling second installment in this epic middle-grade fantasy series about a world where powerful magical shapeshifters are locked in a conflict that has spanned generations. PRAISE FOR SCORCH DRAGONS:'I found a satisfying fantasy world like none I have read before - one in which dragons and wolves take human form and have magical powers. One of the strengths of this book is the exploration of the idea that truth is a matter of perspective - that there are two (or more) sides to every story. There is no clear enemy, the conflict arises from the tension between the dragons and the wolves, and the reader can empathise with both sides, even though many of the adults in the story cannot ... This is a great book for middle-grade readers 8-12.' - Reading
