Children are disappearing from the city of Seddon without a trace. The city gates are locked and guarded, but still the children disappear. One night, Seeger and his friend Boyd are taken and they at last understand the mystery. The abductors are using dragons!

Two days later they arrive at the city of Midrash, where everything serves the military machine – including children who are forced to become soldiers. In a world in which they are daily confronted with violence and the loss of innocence, Seeger and Boyd struggle to maintain their humanity and their friendship. Their only hope of escape lies with a unique gift Seeger has discovered – but one which he must keep secret from his captors. He can speak to dragons.

  1. From the postscript on Child Soldiers by Rev Tim Costello, Chief Advocate, World Vision Australia

    We recognise the invaluable role that public campaigning – and books such as this – that bring  the reality of child recruitment to public attention – have in keeping this important issue in the international media and in influencing change.

  2. Lynn Stringer, author of The Verindon Trilogy

    Beast-Speaker is a fantasy adventure that, although confronting, also has hope, heroes and courage.

  3. Kayla Daking, aged 15

    Beast-Speaker is a compelling novel that I couldn’t put down after I started reading it. With a well-developed plot and characters you’ll come to love, it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read, if not the best.

  4. Rosanne Hawke, author of Wolfchild, Across the Creek and The Leopard Princess

    What an innovative way to give a voice to child soldiers! Yet there is a lightness here that pierces the dark.
