Dragons' Wrath is a novel by Justin Richards from the Virgin New Adventures starring the fictional archaeologist Bernice Summerfield. The New Adventures were based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. Dragons' Wrath was the second New Adventure featuring only Bernice after Virgin lost the licence to publish original Doctor Who fiction.

The novel features the Knights of Jeneve, a far future off-shoot of the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce, a fictional organisation from the Doctor Who television series with headquarters in Geneva, although this is not made explicit for copyright reasons.

Plot[edit]

Bernice meets the Time Lord Irving Braxiatel and soon becomes involved in the hunt for a jewel thief who is after a rare artefact.
