They call him
But Greg Hart can’t slay a dragon. He’d be lucky towin a fight against one of the smaller girls at school.His only real skill is that he can run faster than anyother twelve-year-old boy in his class, a necessity,since that’s who he’s usually running from. Oh, it’s notlike he’s never been the hero at the center of anadventure. It’s just the kind of adventures he’s beeninvolved with have always been the made-up kindhe’s written about in his journal.Now the magicians of Myrth have yanked Greg into astrange new world, where the monsters he must runfrom are far scarier—and hungrier—than anything he’sever run from before. He tries to tell everyone there’sbeen a mistake. Ruuan is a very large dragon, whileGreg, on the other hand, is neither large nor a dragon.He’s barely much of a boy. Unfortunately, suchtrivialities could never stop the people of Myrth frombelieving Greg will rescue King Peter’s daughter fromRuuan. After all, Greg has been named in a prophecy,and no prophecy has ever been wrong before.Why, Greg wonders, does he have to be at the heartof the first one that is?
