'Josh and Clare are complete strangers, two teenagers who meet by accident in the middle of the night at the Geelong Showgrounds. Through no fault of their own they are set adrift in a Hot Air Balloon and borne by the prevailing winds to a small island in Bass Strait, the home of the two dragons, Myvanwy and her son Sweet-Pea.
Despite helping the dragons in their hour of need the two are held captive and grow together in a virtual paradise until they prove themselves once again and are inducted into 'The House of Dragon.' When the castaways finally do return home again their parents are too blind to see that their children have changed forever ... The story is set in the current era using Geelong and surrounds as a backdrop as well as the Furneaux Islands of Tasmania.' (Publisher's blurb)
