This book was really good it captured my heart in seconds into the book, at times I had to put it down as it wasn't that interested but I pushed on and I finally got a shocking and a brilliant adventurous ending, an ending like no other.
This is about a girl that starts off as a slave and then later becomes a dragon keeper, the first ever girl dragon keeper. The dragon gives her love and a name and she returns the dragon with respect and a person to look after him. Not every day a slave becomes involved with such an adventure as this.
This dragon called Danzi teached Ping the ways and life of the world, he also has this really special stone, a stone which must be taken on a journey towards the other side of the land to the ocean, a place where this stone has to go across to the little island in the ocean. Ping lived on Huangling Mountain, in the middle of the Han Empire. The Dragons was locked away in this cave there was tons there but only Danzi and the stone was left, therefore little Ping was determined to save this last dragon Danzi, so she did, herself and the dragon flew away with the stone. Then Danzi crashed and broke his wings, inevitably unable to fly.
This is what mad the journey so long for the pair, and the stone was precious to Danzi, and when it is lost Danzi is in need of getting it back.

Her tyrannic master is a cruel drunk who neglects his duties as Imperial Dragonkeeper and under his watch, the Emperor's dragons have dwindled from a magnificent dozen to a miserable two. When one dragon dies, only the ancient and wise Long Danzi remains. His fate seems sealed - until Ping comes to his rescue in a moment of startling bravery that reveals her destiny as a Dragonkeeper. Pursued by the Emperor's forces and an evil dragon hunter, Ping, Danzi, and a rat called Hua, set off on a remarkable journey across the kingdom. Bound for the Ocean, they carry a mesmerising, beautiful dragon stone that must be protected at any cost. Surviving dangers of all kinds - a shape-shifting necromancer, and a ritual sacrifice among them - the trio finally arrive at Ocean, Danzi's final place of rest. But as her dragon-friend leaves Ping forever, the dragon stone reveals its spectacular secret...
