Dragon Knight Chronicles Book 1: The Awakening by Andrew Wichland.
'This book is an awesome re-imagining for preteens. It has elements of fantasy and sci fi. It revolves around friendship, bravery, following your heart and becoming a hero the world needs.'
Today is Alec-Ryuu’s thirteenth birthday. And he takes his final test in preparation for joining the resistance against the dreaded and powerful Black Dragon.
Nonmagical beings have been forced into hiding by the dragon’s rule, and Alec-Ryuu’s small village lives under the constant threat of exposure and enslavement. Alec-Ryuu, or Ryuu as he prefers to be called, is not your average human. He is the son of a being of great power—stronger, smarter, and faster than friends and rivals alike.
A gold-embroidered box in a cliffside cave sits waiting for Ryuu and his friends. The box’s contents offer the strength to finally strike back at the Black Dragon, should the young warriors have the opportunity.
But that opportunity may be over before it begins. Emissaries of the Black Dragon have discovered Ryuu’s village, and the time has come for the ultimate choice: surrender to a life of slavery, or fight—and possibly die—for freedom.
A fascinating mix of fantasy, science fiction, and mythology, Dragon Knight Chronicles begins the story of Ryuu’s struggle against the most powerful being in the galaxy.

She shows them 8 bracelets and says, you will know when time is right when they receive their bracelets. Make sure they grow big and strong and don't tell them about me until they are ready. And do the same with the other two as well, separate them and until they are ready don't tell them about each other.

The storyline is continuous with other books of the series. This book is the introduction and start of the adventure.
All the characters are unique and different from each other and the author Andrew Wichland had described them perfectly. The Ninja training and test were also interesting to read and made the book must-read. There are parts in book that are filled with emotions and sensitivity that will make you emotional too. The imaginary Air hockey game and riding surfers will take you to the next level of imaginations that you will enjoy the fullest.
