Two Blurb's which one do you pick??

I am constantly trying to improve the marketing of my work and need your help.
Below are two blurbs I have written. The purpose of a blurb is to capture readers imaginations in the hope it will intrigue them and then they will want to read the book.

I need your help.

Please comment and tell me which one you like the most and would encourage you to read a book if you read that as the blurb?

Blurb One

This is the Journal of Fire and the first of six stories known as the Chronicles of Elementary. It was written on a world similar to your own by a young boy named Dragatu (dra-gar-too).

He was visited by a warrior who miraculously appeared to him out of thin air. This warrior was bigger than any man, wore armour of gold and had a very unique sword. He told Dragatu he was the Creator of the universe.

Because of Dragatu’s courage, strength and desire to help the people the Creator offers him a special gift and tells him to lead the people. Dragatu chooses the gift of the Dragon and this incredible gift allows him to create fire with his thoughts making him very powerful. 

Dragatu is a triplet and his brothers are also offered gifts by the Creator. One chooses the gift of the Unicorn and can commune with nature. The other chooses the gift of the Phoenix and can heal people. With these gifts they are also told to lead the people.

Their family also has to protect and keep secret a unique book called the Book of Prophecy. The Creator told them it can only be read by certain people because it contains powerful information about the future.

However the brothers are very different and tensions begin to emerge about how to lead the people and if everyone should be able to read the Book of Prophecy. These tensions peek and a struggle for power begins…

Blurb Two

The words made no sense to him so he closed the book. Prophecy? More like delusions. He returned to his room and wrote in his journal that the Book of Prophecy had to be a lie. Time past and the memory of what he read faded.

Then one day many years later he re-read his journal and saw that the prophecy had come true. With this revelation he becomes obsessed with getting the book, no matter what the cost…

Join Dragatu in this unique adventure about how the prophecy came true, how he and others gained special gifts of power and how his actions to get the Book of Prophecy changed the world forever...

Please leave a comment as to which you think is the best blurb.

Thank you.
