Here be dragons! Win the epic Dragon Rider series by Cornelia Funke

To celebrate the release of the third book in the series, The Aurelia Curse, we're giving three lucky winners the chance to get their hands on all three of these thrilling fantasy adventures...

Hands up who LOVES Dragon Rider? From the author of Inkheart, the first book in the series introduced us to brave young dragon Firedrake and his Dragon Rider companion Ben on their journey to find a place where Silver Dragons could live in peace for ever... all the while pursued by a cruel monster intent on destroying Dragonkind. 

Dragon Rider has now been adapted for the big screen in a major animation with a stellar cast including Felicity Jones and Patrick Stewart, available on Sky Cinema - and following the success of its bestselling sequel, The Griffin's Feather, we're so excited for Firedrake and Ben's adventures to continue with the third book in the series coming this October: The Aurelia Curse.

A vast, mythical creature is emerging from the depths of the ocean - the Aurelia. All magical creatures are connected to its life force, and if ithe Aurelia is hurt or killed, all these beings will be wiped out. It's up to Dragon Rider Ben and the silver dragon Firedrake to protect it at all costs... or face the end of the world as they know it.

We've got three sets of all three books in this magical series to giveaway! For the chance to win, simply answer the question below and leave your details by the closing date of 11pm on Tuesday 26 October 2021.
