A classic fantasy quest - with an exciting dinosaur twist - from the creator of the Laws of Magic series and the Quentaris Chronicles.

When Queen Tayesha threatens to conquer all seven kingdoms of Krangor and thus break the ancient bond between the saur and the land, one young noble vows to stop her. Adalon's promise sets him on a perilous quest. He and his loyal friends, Targesh and Simangee, must find a safe haven, far from the queen's bloodthirsty soldiers. Beyond a river of fire, a lost castle beckons. Mysteries and magical wonders await the three friends at the castle – but awakening ancient magic brings its own dangers.

Praise for The Chronicles Of Krangor 1: Lost Castle

“It was good because it had a lot of the things kids of my age group would like. It has a variety of characters and an excellent journey to out of this world destinations! I really liked it.”

Tom St John, age 9, Random House Book Buddies

“I loved this book by Michael Pryor! It was great in every part of this book… If you had book awards this book should come first. I want more!!!!”

Hugh Pearce, age 9, Random House Book Buddies Club

“It was so good I couldn't put it down. I liked it because it's full of action.”

Oliver Stump, age 10, Random House Book Buddies

“One of the best books I've ever read! I loved it.”

Joshua Brown, age 9, Random House Book Buddies

“Those familiar with the Quentaris and Laws of Magic series will enjoy a new book from this master fantasy writer. But it's clearly aimed at younger readers, tapping into their fascination with dinosaurs and love of fantastic stories. And it's short enough to engage even reluctant readers. It's an excellent introduction to the world of fantasy, and engaging and enjoyable read best suited to 8-10 year olds.”

Good Reading
