Book 1, Season 1 - 2nd EDITION (June 2016) - A fantastic tale of love, war, friendship and dragons! Follow the journey of Johnson Farthing as he races across an ocean carried by a beautiful sea dragon to rescue his sister from slavers. But this is just the beginning, and his world and that of his friends is about to change forever.If Johnson Farthing thought that life as poor cart pusher in the coastal town of Wead-Wodder was going to be his lot in life, then he was about to get a rude surprise, and not necessarily a good one.Once it becomes clear that his beautiful younger sister has been kidnapped along with the daughter of the Prelate, his life is completely turned on its head. Farthing has to rush across a vast ocean and a huge continent carried by an incredible Sea Dragon and accompanied by a strange magician if he has even a chance to save his sister Rustina.And very strangely, neither the rich Prelate nor his chief of police seem keen to even lift a finger.Dirt, the first book in a huge, continent spanning saga where dragons are an intelligent, cultured people, magicians cannot destroy mountains with a magic wand and the heroes have no wish to become tyrannical kings and queens.vBut through all the dramatic events, the battles of life and death, Dirt is a place of humour, love and ultimately, the quest to find a home."I told Truk you would be slacking off the minute he turned his back," shouted the old fool, Barkles, who sold greasy vegetable pasties from a dusty stall on the corner. "Young people can't be trusted, I told him. I was right too.""Shut your face, Barkles," Johnson shouted back as he grabbed his coat from his hand cart and put it around his shoulders to ward off a faint chill in the sea breeze. "I have been down that hole every day non-stop for nine days, and you know it too, since you have been feeding me your disgusting pies for most of them.""Pastries, slacker. Not Pies; Pastries.""I thought pastries were just posh pies?""Can be.""Well, yours ain't posh. So they are definitely just pies.""Ain't seen you complaining!"Find out more at www.AWorldCalleDdirt.comThe Dirt Webiste brings you even more information about this incredible world:Full Details of all the booksCharacter DescriptionsArticles on the geography, history and culturePronunciation GuideMaps of the worldThe articles are written in-character and any information that might spoil your enjoyment of books you have yet to read are protected with spoiler alertsPlus, on some articles, C.C.
