Ferno the Fire Dragon: Series 1 Book 1 (Beast Quest)
About this deal
Due to the location of the Chamber of Pain in the Western Ocean, only three Beasts could reach the battleground: Ferno, Sepron, and Epos. When the city began to collapse after Ravira's defeat, the Fire Dragon and Flame Bird flew away, reuniting with the villagers (recovering from being Hounds of Avantia) and Tom and Elenna, flying in circles over the group.
Epos moved over Ferno, dropping down and grabbing the dragon's horns with her talons, pulling his head around until Ferno reared up and slashed with his claws. He pitted himself against Nanook, rearing his head back and releasing a stream fire on the Snow Monster, being met by the Beast's shielding arms, but badly singeing it. He approached the Metal Warrior and released a jet of fire on the Henkrallian Beast, who tried to fly away, but fell to the ground as his wings melted. The Beast explained he was unaware what had come over him, with Tom quickly explaining what the venom had done to him before the group left to pursue Falkor and Berric.When Mortaxe was defeated, the Beasts were released from the magic of the arena, with Ferno taking to the air. Out of desperation for their best warrior being killed, King Hugo and Aduro would accept Tom's offer to attempt to free the Beasts. When Malvel struck Tom's shield with a sleep spell, the magic travelled through the tokens to all of the Beasts, and as such Ferno fell dormant with the others.
He released another blast of flame on the water, draining the Evil Beast's power further as the lake shrank. Ferno landed and allowed the two young dragons to climb onto his back, personally taking them to the mountains deeper in Rion to train. Six fearsome beasts have been cast under an evil spell by the Dark Wizard Malvel, and are destroying the kingdom of Avantia.
An evil wizard has enchanted the magical beasts of Avantia – only a true hero can free the beasts and stop them from destroying the land. As such, when Tom duelled Nemico and the evil version of Tom matched the true warrior of Avantia admirably, Tom resorted to summoning Ferno to assist him.
The two Beasts slammed together again, Ferno sinking his fangs in Epos's shoulder, disengaging as Maximus was almost knocked off, rolling away but accidentally making the wizard fall, barely able to hang onto the saddle. The Fire Dragon arrived with a jet of flame as he descended on the battleground, enraging the watching Malvel. A large dragon Beast, Ferno is one of the Good Beasts of Avantia who helps defend the realm from harm.The Beast thrust his head at Tom, but Tom grabbed onto his chin to move towards the collar, causing Ferno to writhe his head to dislodge his enemy. Ferno's fire was also strong enough to melt Nemico's leather shield and fling Arax against a rough mountainside. An evil wizard has enchanted the magical Beasts of Avantia - only a true hero can free the Beasts and stop them from destroying the land. Like the other Good Beasts, Ferno attended Taladon's funeral in spirit, channelling his grief and anguish through his token in Tom's shield as the former Master of the Beasts was taken into the Gallery of Tombs. As Ravira relied on the light of the moon for her power, Tom hoped to be able to block out the moonlight.
