I believe the book in question is probably older because I think I found it in my grandparents stacks when I was younger. I’ve scoured them several times since and couldn’t find it but they have a lot of turn over. It definitely seemed older due to the condition of the book and the paper if I’m remembering correctly. At the very least I don’t think it was a book specifically written with children in mind as the target audience.

Anyways, I think the book centered around a young man or older boy who I think found a dragon egg. This was the last egg or there hadn’t been dragons seen in a long time so a party was gathered to take this egg to the hatching grounds or something like that. The only specific I can remember for sure is from one scene where the party is climbing a mountain. There was specific imagery of the party members being tied together with the large knight type guy at the bottom and the spindly main character leading the way.

I remember something about concern that if the knight was to slip the rest of the party might not be able to support his weight and if the young man at the top slipped and knocked the other central party members loose the knight guy might not be able to catch them all.

  • could it be one of the witcher book though i have not read the books,but something similar happen in the netflix adaptation of that book.

This one is about a girl, not a boy, but the rest of the synopsis may overlap with your description?

When Kale, a slave girl, finds a dragon egg, she is given the unexpected opportunity to become a servant to Paladin. But on her way to The Hall, where she was to be trained, Kale runs into danger. Rescued by a small band of Paladin’s servants, Kale is turned from her destination.

    This book has come up a lot while I’ve been searching but I’m pretty sure this isn’t it. The characters in the book I’m looking for weren’t riding dragons like they do in Dragonspell. Thank you for the response though. Commented Jul 21, 2020 at 9:23
