by J.D. Oswald
Part of the The Ballad of Sir Benfro series
Dreamwalker is the first spellbinding novel in the new epic fantasy series from J.
D. Oswald - The Ballad of Sir Benfro. In a small village, miles from the great cities of the Twin Kingdoms, a young boy called Errol tries to find his way in the world.
He's an outsider - he looks different from other children and has never known his father.
No one, not even himself, has any knowledge of his true lineage.
Deep in the forest, Benfro, the young male dragon begins his training in the subtle arts.
Like his mother, Morgwm the Green, he is destined to be a great Mage.
No one could imagine that the future of all life in the Twin Kingdoms rests in the hands of these two unlikely heroes.
But it is a destiny that will change the lives of boy and dragon forever...And so begins The Ballad of Sir Benfro - the unputdownable tale of the great dragons returning to the kingdom of men.
Breathtakingly compulsive and beautifully written, The Ballad of Sir Benfro is for readers hooked to the world of George R.
R. Martin's Game of Thrones and those longing for the next Tolkien film adaptation.
Dreamwalker is followed by The Rose Cord and The Golden Cage.

Review by wyvernfriend
A Dragon and a Prince born on the same day, both have to hide from the whole truth about themselves, the leader of the main religion on the world wants all the power but he is working at it slowly.It was a bit meh in parts but not too bad, this book is setting up the characters and the conflict, it will be interesting to see what happens next. I just wasn't all that moved by the story and the bad guys were all but twirling moustaches. I could see potential in the book and it did keep me reading but it felt like there was something missing, something that could be more, a greater depth that the author hadn't dived into and I missed it.
