Beschreibung:

Think of yourself out of your comfy chair and your nice house with the roads and the streetlights outsideand the ceiling overhead low enough that a fifty-foot dragon can't stand on her hind legs and not bump her headand think yourself into a cavern full of dragons. Go on. Try. Jake lives with his scientist father at the Makepeace Institute of Integrated Dragon Studies in Smokehill National Park. Smokehill is home to about two hundred of the few remaining Draco australiensis, which is extinct in the wild. There are five million acres of the Smokehill wilderness and the dragons rarely show themselves. Jack's never seen one except deep in the park and at a distance. They stay away from the Instituteand the tourists. But dragon conservation is controversial. Detractors say dragons are much too dangerous and much too expensive, and should be destroyed. Supporters say there is no record of their doing anything more threatening than eating sheep, there are only a few hundred of them left at best and they must be protected. But they are up to eighty feet long (plus tail) and breathe fire. On Jake's first overnight solo in the park, he meets a dragonthe thing that he would have said he wanted above everything else in the world. But this dragon is dyingdying next to the human she has killed. Jake knowns this news could destroy Smokehill. The dead man is clearly a poacher who attacked first, but that will be lost in the outcry against dragons. But then Jake notices something even more urgent: the dragon has just given birth, and one of the babies is still alive
