Firedrake, a young dragon, receives a frightening warning one night: Humans are planning to destroy the valley in which he lives! All the dragons must flee. Their only refuge is a place above the clouds called the Rim of Heaven, which may not even exist. Firedrake boldly volunteers to go ahead first. As he embarks on his journey, he meets Ben, a runaway boy. Together, the boy and dragon make their way toward the Rim of Heaven, all the while running a step ahead of Nettlebrand, a monster who will stop at nothing to hunt down Firedrake. Their quest will truly become an adventure like no other.
This is an excellent book in its own right, but the narrator makes the audiobook truly exceptional. The characterizations and voices were fantastic. We all (ages 6, 9, 40 and 41) loved it.
My son is 9 and he (we) loved the book. The narration by Brendan Fraser was great. We loved the many different voices and the excitement he read into it. This book was worth every minute spent listening to it.
I love Brendan Fraser I can't believe he is doing this he is my favorite actor
