A tale of dragons and disaster that “masterfully blends fantasy, teen drama, and a strong message of environmentalism into a white-hot narrative” (Kirkus Reviews).
In small town Virginia, Chloe McClellan’s sophomore year of high school is rapidly turning into an epic fail. First, she becomes the target of the queen of the It-Girls in gym. Then, she’s struck by lightning . . . and that’s when things really start to get weird.
There are disconcerting gaps in her memory, and freaky weather seems to follow her everywhere. Either she’s going insane, or her accident has awoken a terrifying creature from mythology, triggering the final countdown to the extinction of humankind. Rising sea levels, droughts, earthquakes, tornadoes—far below the earth’s crust, imprisoned in ancient slumber, the elemental powers of the land grow restless . . .
Chloe finds unlikely help from a trio of male classmates: the captain of the football team, a flighty stoner with a secret, and an enigmatic transfer student who longs for the sea. All the while, she struggles with the growing realization that dragons exist, and she and her friends may be the only ones who can stop them.
In the first book in the epic new Tipping Point Prophecy series, global dragon mythology is reimagined against a backdrop of ecological disaster, high school angst, and the power of the human spirit when working in accord with the elements.
“A cautionary modern tale about climate change and pollution. The realistic, adolescent dramas buffeting [the] clever protagonist . . . are just as well-crafted as the passages on Chinese mythology and five-clawed, flying beasts.” —Slate
