Dreams are the fire that warm the soul.
Everyone at school thinks that Evie broke her ribs in a car crash… Evie doesn’t talk about why she was adopted and why she really needed an operation.
Because some things should never be said.
Now, she is safe and even has a souvenir from hospital – a piece of rib bone, which she carves into a dragon. And it comes to life at night in Dragon-dreams, helping Evie to heal, giving her strength.
But some things cannot be fixed. Some things are too terrible to be forgiven. Sometimes, revenge must be take and it seems the dragon is the one to take it, while Evie looks on.

Thank you so much for this incredible book! I am 32 years old and it filled my heart with light, warmth and hope. Everybody needs a dragon and people like you, who can tell how to get one! Especially the ones who seem to be helpless. The Bone Dragon can help to survive.
Compliments from germany,
Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know how much you liked it! It’s absolutely made my day.
Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.
All best wishes,
Lexi (& the Dragon, who sends a smoke ring of appreciation)
