What's in a name?

I have been thinking for some time about changing the name of Alex Frost: Overearth to something more catchy and descriptive. So here it is...

Alex Frost and the Dragons of Overearth

Hopefully it works and it tells you a lot more about the story!

Here is the current synopsis:

All Alex Frost wants to do is get home without being coated in mudballs by the school bullies... again! But events are already set in motion that ensure mudballs are the least of her worries.

When strange events begin happening around her, Alex's parents reveal to her that they are dragons hiding on Earth from an evil tyrant. When other dragon children begin to disappear, she is sent to a world called Overearth to train in the dragon arts. With the help of an ancient human wizard, Merlin, and her dragon teacher, Erbas, Alex and the other dragon children learn how to shape shift, breath fire, fly and control the elements.

Alex's best human friend, Lilly, visits Overearth during the Christmas holidays. But the sanctuary they are staying at comes under attack and Lilly is snatched in a case of mistaken identity. With her friend's life in danger, Alex disobeys her parents and sets out in an attempt to rescue Lilly. Guided by Erbas, Alex must cross a strange world, battle dark legions and face an ultimate sacrifice in order to save her friend's life. But at what cost to her and all of dragon kind?

I welcome any and all comments!
