Fans of the Dragonbound series may have noticed that a new edition of the first three Dragonbound books has been released and the first edition books discontinued. Here’s why.
The Dragonbound series was originally planned to be middle-grade fantasy, and the first edition covers reflect that. However, the exciting fourth adventure, which will be published soon, has swayed more toward the YA audience. The length and fast pacing are the same, but the story in book 4 gets a little darker and more gritty with a hint of YA romance. Sensitive parents may want to pre-read Dragonbound IV: Red Dragon before approving it for children under 12. Due to this change in tone of the 4th book, we at Wonder Realms Books have re-branded the covers to reposition the whole series for the YA and general fantasy market.
Feel free to contact Wonder Realms Books through the contact link on this site with any questions about the change. The author, Rebecca Shelley, would also be happy to discuss the new branding with anyone who wishes to speak to her.
