In Search of Lost Dragons by Elian Black'Mor and Carine M

I was a bit surprised about what this book is.  I thought it would be a quest to rescue dragons.  It's a quest all right, but it's trying to locate their lairs and resting places and notating how many kinds there are.  It's really quite fascinating.

Diamond Book Distributors and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published so check with your local bookshop or comic book store for a copy.

It reads like non-fiction.  It's done in journal form and the narrator/illustrator travels over Europe through the middle east and even into Saigon.  He discusses the legends about each dragon and draws pictures of their bones as well as pictures of them in flight.

The world of dragons has been written about for years but this graphic novel names more than I've heard of and even suggests they are behind some natural disasters.  I found that interesting.  

My favorite parts of this novel are the full page color illustrations.  They take your breath away!  Check it out at your local store and I'm sure you'll want to take a copy of this book home with you.  If you have an interest in dragons, it'll please that need, too.
