From the introduction:
Do you like dragons? It's an innocent question, really. No reason for asking at all. Except there is, for you're going to be spending the next ten years in the Legends of Spyro. That's right, you will live life among the dragons.
There will be peace, followed by conflict, in turn followed by peace, before finally descending into conflict once more. It's a very 'up and down' sort of location. It would be unwise to underestimate this world, however, as the villains found here have great powers beyond the reach of most people. But you're not most people, are you?
