Aqua and Rios are bored, which is always a recipe for disaster. They decide that taking a trip to visit Nickel would be a ton of fun, so they hop on a boat and go sailing down the river. Niagara Falls separates the two kits from their destination, not that they’re aware of that fact, and their fun adventure quickly turns into a desperate fight for survival.
Dragon Adventure switches families from the huge family of Mercury and Dane to that of William, the head of a neighboring Land Region and his two fosters/sons Aqua and Rios, two very active water dragons. We had met them before when William came for Council meetings and sought Dane and Mercury’s help with bringing up his two young dragons (a rare feat as young dragons have a tough time reaching maturity).
Here its that very immaturity that gets them into trouble and sends them off on an adventure to visit Nickel. William makes for a great scary and understanding father figure and the two maturing kits are endearing and great to get to know on a deeper level.
I loved that Mell Eight brought her readers a better understanding of why the dragons aged so slowly (staying young or small as a matter of survival didn’t occur to me until she laid out a perfectly logical explanation. There’s also another cute character introduced here as well.
The story breezes along as it should for 34 pages. Its cute, sweet and a great side adventure to the main body of stories in this series. Loved it.
Cover art by Aisha Akeju contains part of an element of the story. I like the dragon footprints.
