Rick Ferno is descended from King Arthur, he’s the son of the sky Dragon, and prophesized future King of the planet. On top of all that, he’s destined to fight a powerful Dragon known as Pavane, for the fate of the universe. In the foreword of Jaylen B. T. Kroupa’s new science fiction series with its thematic concerns about the teenage life, Rick Ferno & the Battle of the Dragons, Rick describes himself concisely: “The name’s Ferno. Rick Ferno, to be a matter of fact. I’m fourteen years old, and I live in Miami Florida. If you saw me, you’d think I was an average ordinary kid. Except if you were a girl, you’d be trying to desperately flirt with me…”

To continue, the battle of the Dragons has exploded over the last several months, with Pavane’s army growing in numbers, and surrounding every stronghold. Rick and his friends must soon leave school to embark on another long and perilous journey, to the most unreachable places on earth. The four seem focused and determined, but Rick has been bitten by the love bug, and Dawn, struggles with the thought of joining her father. Young Rick soon discovers that there is a riddle-like prophecy concerning him, but what he finds doesn’t put his mind to ease–and as the problems become more complex (chaotic, in fact), he becomes a young man who must take charge of the situation. Then, when things start to look up, Pavane appears at the school with a dire warning for his enemies. The Immortals are coming…

Brilliantly narrated, fast-paced, and hilariously documented, the story of Rick Ferno lives on in this, Kroupa’s second book, The Immortals. With a brand-new plethora of characters and terrifying monsters, the world of Rick and his posse of extraordinary teens grows even more unpredictable. Succeeding The Breath Of A Dragon, this story grabs the imagination with killer hawks, hypothermia in a forest, and the secrets of the universe that propel it to an electrifying finish. In the contest of youth, magic and legends of books that hope to capture teenagers’ imaginations today, Rick Ferno’s saga runs in the lead of the pack.
