In the first book, Grace moves to Hong Kong with her mum and new stepdad, and amidst settling in to her new life, Grace discovers the existence of dragons. Together with her new friends, Grace has to uncover a plot threatening to abuse the dragons’ powers. In this sequel, Grace learns that the villain is searching for an ancient relic to control the dragons.

Little E says, “This series is fast-paced and exciting. I rooted for Grace, who is relatable and resilient. I also like that the action takes place in cities like Hong Kong and Paris." Big E adds, "The story's premise is unique while the illustrations by Truong are stunning and adds to the excitement of the interesting storyline.” We recommend this graphic novel for tweens and those older.
