Dragonwatch is the first novel in the Dragonwatch series by Brandon Mull. It was released March 14th, 2017.
In the hidden dragon sanctuary of Wyrmroost, Celebrant the Just, King of the Dragons, plots his revenge. He has long seen the sanctuaries as prisons, and he wants nothing more than to overthrow his captors and return the world to the Age of Dragons.
The two children are sent to Wyrmroost, and get appointed caretakers due to the cause of the dragon rebellions. Raxtus tries to prevent Kendra and Seth from becoming caretakers in order to protect them, and Celebrant tears down a perch where the caretakers handle dragons. However, the defenses of Blackwell Keep are weak, so Agad the wizard believes that appointing them, as completely mortal caretakers will strengthen the defenses. However, after riding to Terrabelle, with Henrick, they find out that it may lie with Ryland (Somber Knight), who tells them that it there a hidden scepter connected to a magic medallion they own. He tells them to go to Dromadus, who is is his lair. They journey to Dromadus' Lair, and go in the lair. The dragon sends them into the Path of Dreams, where the scepter should be. After walking there, they fall asleep and experience their own separate dreams. After meeting up in one dream, they go in a hidden maze, and have only 5 minutes. Seth's tiny friend, Calvin, leads him to the scepter just in time for the two children to wake up in time. They give the scepter to Henrick, who gets chased into one of the Safe Huts in the preserve. Seth comes up with a plan to rescue Henrick and persuades Knox, his cousin to come to Wyrmroost through a magical barrel. Meanwhile, he rides Tempest, the Griffin to distract most of the dragons. After Knox gets the scepter, Seth gets sent back to Fablehaven (preserve) through the Fairy Queen's Realm. However, Kendra has to talk to Celebrant alone, and Seth still yet hasn't came back. She manages to talk to the dragon, and shames him, and even turns her back on Celebrant. In the end, Seth comes back and Wyrmroost, still alive.
