Three Words to Describe the book: Mysterious, Dangerous, Ending

My Review: Four books in this series and all have been full of adventure, espionage and dragons! This well written series is perfect for adventurous readers and those who love a good mystery and learning more about dragons.

Dirk Dilly is a Mountain Dragon with some brilliant abilities. His human friend Holly is also incredible but more because she is friends with a dragon and this is a very rare occurrence! They meet in Book one when Holly’s cat goes missing and she hires Dirk, not realising he is a Dragon. More adventures follow and the pair make an unlikely but successful crime fighting duo!

It’s a Wrap is the fourth and final book in the series and it is exciting, mysterious and thrilling. Buchanan is back and plans to lure Holly and Dirk into a trap. Set in the glamourous Hollywood Hills, there are new dragons to meet and sticky situations for Holly and Dirk to emerge from- but will they be victorious this time??

It is always sad to see a series end, we will miss Dirk, Holly and Mrs Klingerfilm, who makes a surprising arrival in L.A. as well! Such a super series and perfect for adventure seekers!
