The Dragon Defence League Series

Your father was a dragon slayer. You must become one too.

But what if dragons aren’t the real enemy?

Four dragon-filled adventures set in beautiful New Zealand.

I haven’t seen my 7-year-old son so excited about a book since Harry Potter.


Nathan is shocked to learn his father is dead, and even more shocked to learn he was a dragon slayer. Everything he thought he knew about his father was a lie. But he has no time to think about what it means before he is whisked off the the Alexandra School of Heroic Arts to train as his father’s successor. At school, Nathan and his new friends soon learn: dragons are not what they thought, neither is the schoolmaster, Claus Drachenmorder, and Nathan’s dad might not be dead … yet.
