Humans were thought to be extinct. Victims of a curse that turns them into dragons, Jaxx is surprised to find a human infant in the province of Oescienne. Despite his misgivings about her appearance and what this could mean for an ancient prophecy that could break the curse on the humans forever, he assumes responsibility for her.
Raised by her mother and her dragon mentor, Jaxx, Jahrra knows all about the legends and sagas of Oescienne. When she gets to school, however, she has a hard time fitting in. Although she makes two friends, she has a hard time dodging bullies.
Seeking out adventure with her friends, she's unaware of the fact that she is being followed. As the truth unravels and she discovers her destiny, she realizes there are secrets her mentor has been keeping from her - and she'll have to fight to earn her place in the world.
With an ancient prophecy hanging over her head that some people do not want to see come to light, how can one win one's place in the world and dodge the danger lurking around every corner? Will Jahrra discover her role in the prophecy in time to save her world and herself?
An intriguing fantasy adventure that takes a while to develop, but is worth the read. The characters are well-created, and the plot is complex and interesting. Readers who like fantasy, mystery, adventure, and dragons will enjoy reading THE FINDING.
