The Dragon's Egg
(Relics of Mysticus, #3)

By: H.B. Bolton
Release Date: May 1st, 2014
Genre: MG Mythology/Fantasy

My Review: (4/5 stars*)

The Dragon's Egg continues following the adventures of Evan and Claire across the mythical realms. It's the third novel in the Relics of Mysticus series, and definitely the most exciting installment yet. Middle grade readers will enjoy taking the journey and visiting the different mythology Bolton incorporates.

This time around the siblings dive into Arthurian myth and travel to the world of Medieval Legends. It's here they face off with new foes, encounter faeries, learn more about their totem powers, and search for Emrys (the great wizard Merlin) who is feared to have been captured by The Lady of the Lake who seems to be in cahoots with Alamaz. It's again left up to Evan, Claire, and their impish sidekick Dunkle to locate the dragon's egg relic so that they can restore order to the realms.

As a lover of Arthurian legend I was really happy with how the author wove the lore into the story. Each medieval reference had me wishing for more. Every Relics of Mysticus novel improves upon the last with the siblings maturing, more built-in history, world expansion, and fun adventures. We're even given a huge secret reveal that ties into how Claire and Evan can enter Sagaas which gives us something to look forward to in the future. By the last page you're left hooked for the next.

The Dragon's Egg is an exciting fantasy young adult read. It has a great balance of action and magic that'll keep readers coming back for more. Bolton spins myth in a really fun way. This series has been a pleasure to read and I'm eager to see where she takes these heroic characters in The Mummy's Amulet!


Sure, the glass castle floating over Evan’s head is a little unsettling, but that’s the least of his worries. With each step inside the Dungeon of Dreadful Dreams, he must battle against his worst nightmares. One after the other, wispy smoke-filled bull sharks come at him—he must remember they’re only illusions pulled from his imagination by those dreaded shadowlike hands. If only the vengeful dragon circling above was also an illusion and didn’t have his mind set on destroying the one person who can control him: Emrys. 

Inside the castle’s glass tower, Emrys sleeps in an eternal slumber, and Evan’s uncertain whether he can save the great wizard. Especially now that Emrys’ former student, the Lady of the Lake, has joined forces with the cunning immortal Alamaz. Together they have already stolen the Dragon’s Egg, but their greed doesn’t end there. The Siren’s Pearl calls to them, and that means only one thing…Atlantis is in trouble.

Join Evan, Claire, and Dunkle—along with a few other unlikely heroes—as they travel across the realm of Medieval Legends, float through the Ancient Isle of Avalon, plunge inside the Dungeon of Dreadful Dreams, and be there when Atlantis rises once again.
Geared toward readers of middle grade fantasy.
Perfect for fans of Percy Jackson.
