Ashtown Burials I: The Dragon's Tooth


Thanks to FuseEight for the link.

Wow! Is this a book trailer or a movie trailer? It's a book trailer for N.D Wilson's Ashtown Burials #1: The Dragon's Tooth. I predict kids will run to the catalog to place a hold after viewing this movie-like book trailer. Bravo, N.D. Wilson!

From the Hardcover edition


Synopsis from Random House

"For two years, Cyrus and Antigone Smith have run a sagging roadside motel with their older brother, Daniel. Nothing ever seems to happen. Then a strange old man with bone tattoos arrives, demanding a specific room.

Less than 24 hours later, the old man is dead. The motel has burned, and Daniel is missing. And Cyrus and Antigone are kneeling in a crowded hall, swearing an oath to an order of explorers who have long served as caretakers of the world's secrets, keepers of powerful relics from lost civilizations, and jailers to unkillable criminals who have terrorized the world for millennia.

N. D. Wilson, author of
Leepike Ridge and 100 Cupboards, returns with an imagination-capturing adventure that inventively combines the contemporary and the legendary."

Borrow The Dragon's Tooth from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.
