The day fire and ice erupt from the sky, everything changes forever for twelve-year-old Theo. He discovers that dragons are real when Lamia, a three-headed monster, kidnaps his sister. A witch and a talking magpie help him open the portal to Dragon Village, a land he knows only from myth, a place filled with terrifying creatures. A young woodland nymph befriends him when he arrives. He must learn to trust his instincts as he searches for a way to defeat Lamia before the dragon sacrifices his sister. In his journey, he uncovers secrets that reveal that only he can save the mystical land.
In this book, you will discover some of the terrifying creatures from Bulgarian and Slavic mythology. Some you may know by other names: Samodivi are Veelas from Harry Potter fame, only here they’re shown as supernatural creatures of the forest.
Baba Yaga, Harpies, and other creatures find their way into these pages, as well as the dreaded Lamia.
Dragon Village is known as Zmeykovo in Bulgarian folklore. This is the place where all mystical creatures live during the winter, only to return to the human world in the spring, on March 25, Blagovets. The Unborn Hero of Dragon Village brings to life the creatures who live there and give readers a look at a mythology and culture the Western world is not familiar with.
Praise for Dragon Village
“Dragon Village is a beautiful book in every sense. I read the book with my two children and we were all enthralled by the story. The author blends elements of Harry Potter, Tolkien and the medieval poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight with Slavic mythology to create an original, engrossing tale.”
“This is a book that will appeal to both boys and girls as it is filled with adventure and magic. Many positive messages can also be taken away from this story such as; together you’re stronger and that love is a more powerful force than hate.”
“This book brought back so many fabulous memories. It is family night – sitting by the fire around my father’s recliner. The story books he chose to read were always fantastic tales of worlds that dwell within in the realms of imagination. This is one of those stories!”
“In addition to learning more about the rich Bulgarian mythology and folklore, the book offers an adventurous story and characters the keep you interested until the very last page. A great read for the whole family!”
