Dragons

Dragons are a real part of Fantasy and can be found in so many books and tales.  I thought I would dedicate a page to them!

The word dragon entered the English language in the early 13th century from Old French dragon, which in turn comes from Latin draconem (nominative draco) meaning “huge serpent, dragon”, from the Greek word δράκων,drakon (genitive drakontos, δράκοντος) “serpent, giant seafish”. The Greek and Latin term referred to any great serpent, not necessarily mythological, and this usage was also current in English up to the 18th century.

The Dragon in Idi & The Oracle’s Quest is a shape-shifting Dragon who changes herself into a woman and sings to hypnotize people to come to her, so that she may kill them and eat their hearts.  She is known as the Shee-Dragon.

Dragon 2

Check out Steve’s new Dragon book series – it’s fab!

I guess Game of Thrones now hosts the most famous dragon of all times, Drogon.
