Genre:  Tween/Middle Grade Fantasy

Book Description:  Marc Mondragon is your average teenager: always getting into trouble, crushing on the pretty girl in school. But when strange things begin happening to his body, Marc is thrust into a new world where dragons are no longer just fairytales. Now knowing he’s part dragon, Marc joins a group of Dragonkyn who call themselves Sorceron. As Marc discovers new powers within himself, he starts to wonder how much he can really trust his fellow Dragonkyn. After the leader of Sorceron orders the rest of the group to kill Marc, he flees. But when he discovers that people are going to attack the Sorceron, Marc is faced with a dilemma. Will he try to help the Dragonkyn who tried to kill him?

My thoughts: To be a boy going through puberty is a hard enough, to add dragon ability growing pains makes it much more difficult.

Marc is teen living on the poor side of town. It's just him and his mom. He is chased by the local police man, just because he can, and he has few close friends. Then he begins to have sore throats where he belches fire, sever acne, nodules on his shoulders, and intense pain. Life went from bad to worse in a short period of time.

Turns out Marc has dragon DNA.  There are men out to kill him, but he has some amazing powers.  He turns out to be part dragon with compassion.  Marc is a cool kid.

This is a fun book for the tween reader. It has action and adventure, plus dragons. Because dragons are cool and a huge drawing point for boys. This book may be something for the reluctant reader to check out, there is sure to be something that will make them want to continue reading.

The book contains violence.
