Dragons exist. They’re ferocious. And, in this novel from C. J. Hill, they’re smart: before they were killed off by slayer-knights, they rendered a select group of eggs dormant so their offspring would survive. Only a handful of people know about this, let alone believe it—these “Slayers” are descended from the original knights and are now a diverse group of teens that includes Tori, a smart but spoiled senator’s daughter who didn’t sign up to save the world.

The dragon eggs have fallen into the wrong hands. The Slayers must work together to stop the eggs from hatching. They will fight; they will fall in love. But will they survive?

GEORGE AND THE DRAGON, with the word CAMP tacked up underneath

Reviews

Praise for Slayers

“Part urban fantasy, part superhero tale, this adventure is full of action, drama, and humor, with just a touch of romance.” —Publishers Weekly Online

“This promising new series may feature dragons and a reeducation camp for contemporary youths who have mythological roots, but the character development, plotting, and ethical quandaries make this more than a worthy equal of the works of Rick Riordan or Christopher Paolini.” —Booklist

Praise for Janette Rallison:

“Rallison’s writing is zippy and light as well as frequently humorous; teens looking for a breezy read with a fairy-tale bent will lap this up, and they may gain a little useful perspective on relationships and loyalty at the same time.” —BCCB
