Deltora Quest meets Dinotopia in this classic fantasy quest from the bestselling Australian author of Blaze of Glory!
While Adalon and his friends Targesh and Simangee gather supporters at the Lost Castle, the mad queen and her ruthless general continue to wage war on the Seven Kingdoms of Krangor.
It is only when Simangee finds a legend in an ancient text that the rebels begin to hope once more. Do the Missing Kin of the saur really exist? Can the three friends find the winged saur and convince them to join their cause before it's too late?

PRAISE FOR KRANGOR BOOK ONE:
'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

'I thought that the book was very creative and I think it's really good. My favourite characters are Simangee, Adalon and Targesh. When I was reading it it was so good I couldn't put it down.
