Description

There is also another thrilling fact that you get to find out in this book and that is the fire tear, the one thing that Liz uses to give her precious clay dragons life. The aura from this fire tear, that gives life to these dragons, is kept in a snowball in her freezer. However, she doesn’t let David find that out just yet, as she only tells him that this snowball in the freezer is just a memory from past events. Zanna

Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: An ice spike through the chest is what does in David, the protagonist himself. Yes, it is gut-wrenching. It was very full of good moments! It was also very full of bad moments. It kept raising my expectations and then letting me down. I can't hope to describe everything that let me down in this book. It has intriguing world building, but it treats its dragons grotesquely, and their society seems unhealthy in more than one sense. I often found myself gritting my teeth at yet another gross description. The ultimate sin though was that I hated the characters too much. There were a very few characters to root for, half of whom suffered and died horribly, and everyone else was wretched. There wasn't a sense of people trying their best. The sense was instead that the cast was made of awful characters suffering in the societies they were making awful. Also, why do all dragons have to have whirling jewel eyes? Can we just never get away from Pern? Come on, man. It gets old. You get to read a lot more about David in this story, as he has finally returned into everyone’s lives after quite the long time and is beginning to get closer to everyone again. What’s even more interesting about the story in this book is that you are about to meet a few more dragons than the clay ones that Elizabeth creates and brings to life. We have reached the fifth book of The Last Dragon Chronicles series and this story might be the most exciting and suspenseful yet as a terrible danger has threatened the entire world and it is up to our favorite characters to save the day again.

the Mark of Oomara by Kitrei-Sirto, literature

The Last Dragon Chronicles is a series of seven children's fantasy novels written by Chris d'Lacey. The books follow a college student, David Rain, as he discovers the existence of living clay dragons in the house he lodges at. This series currently includes the novels: I was recently thinking about what's the worst book I've ever read, and the answer is the Fire Within. Before you go forward, here's a picture of the cover. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Fire_Within_cover.jpg Wound That Will Not Heal: The Mark of the Oomara. By the fourth book, though, Zanna's arm is better. I began this series, since I read anything my 11 year old grand daughter is reading :-) While it's not up there with Harry Potter for me, d"Lacey has woven a fascinating story based on the premise that dragone once ruled the world, and they had a special connection to certain humans.

At the heart of the books is an environmental message--and the melting of the polar ice caps is one of the main plot turning points. For me, the idea that the dragons' return could save us relates to my own hope that human imagination can stretch us to find new ways to heal what we have been destroying. You also get to meet another thrilling character in this book, Alexa. She is David’s daughter and the author is giving us hints that Alexa might just be the only person, who will have what it takes to bring down the mighty Gaia and save countless lives in the process. As you read this book, chapter by chapter, you also get to read a thing or two about the Arctic in every chapter as you get to find out, piece by piece, what exactly happened in this mysterious place as this knowledge still remains a mystery to many. Few Surprises The book initially opens with the introduction of a seer’s apprentice, called Agawin as there is a mysterious story following this character that will begin to unravel completely later on in the story. For the time being, you get to read about the evil Ix as they have consumed countless lifeforms and are growing a deadly army made for destruction. Punctuation Shaker: Dragons are fond of the traditional apostrophe (see: Things like "G'ravity" and "G'lant"). Ix go for the exotic and rarely-seen ː, in things like Ixːrisor and Premːix.The series begins when David, an Ordinary College Student, starts looking for a place to stay during his term. He finds a woman named Elizabeth "Liz" Pennykettle, who is renting out part of her house on a street called Wayward Crescent. David moves in with her and her ten-year-old daughter, Lucy. Liz is an artist — she makes clay dragons, and even gives David a dragon of his own, whom he names Gadzooks. As David settles into life with the Pennykettles, he starts noticing strange things — movement in the corner of his eye here, the feeling of being watched there, and odd noises everywhere. Through his adventures with Lucy, he soon realizes that there is more to the Pennykettles than there seems. Some of the dragons they make are just statuary, but some of them are alive. David refuses to believe this at first - but his sudden inspiration to write stories, and Gadzooks' own pen and paper, soon force him into believing that there is more to Wayward Crescent than meets the eye. In a world between Earth and Ki:mera, called Co:pern:ica, lives a twelve-year-old boy named David. He and his friend Rosanna spend their days in the librarium, a museum for books, with the curator, Mr Henry, and the mysterious firebirds that roam the upper levels. Two-Part Trilogy: An inverse of the way it usually happens - the first two books form a more complete and coherent story, with the third one being more separate. This story is definitely a next-level one as things have greatly changed for the characters inside, as they visit new worlds, meet new characters, encounter new and more dangerous threats, and generally bring you more and more exciting reading material, which you just can’t resist if you have come this far. Three Parts

The fifth book, Dark Fire, sees David and Zanna teaming up with a group of dragons to stop an ancient evil that has been awakened. The book delves deeper into the mythology of the dragons and introduces new characters and plot twists that will keep readers guessing until the very end. David is soon dragged deep into the secret history and world of dragons. Liz and Lucy are among the last protectors of the world's dragons — descendants of Guinivere, a maiden who befriended the last "true" dragon. Dragons aren't the big beasts they once were — now, they must take clay bodies. But they still have dragon's sparks, deep down. And David and the Pennykettles must protect them from all who would do them harm! As such, people who hated the first book tend to hate the sequels even more while audiences that fell in love with ‘The Fire Within’ have only good things to say about the rest of the Last Dragon Chronicles series. Mirror Universe: Every main character in Fire World has a counterpart on Earth. It's also Lampshaded in-universe. The Ark: In Fire World, the Librarium becomes one during the flood, complete with animals and plants.The Chosen Many: Liz and Lucy aren't the only descendants of Guinevere running around, and on the flipside, Gwilanna isn't the only nasty sibyl... One thing that I only liked about this book were the dragons themselves. They may be just clay (with magical powers) throughout the plot but whatever. They're the reason why I even started reading this book in the first place. And the prospect of having seemingly alive clay dragons is kinda fascinating. The characters are likable and entertaining, if one-dimensional, but it's disappointing that you don't really learn anything about David. It's implied he's a geography student, it's implied he plays the guitar, he's caring, he's definitely creative, and definitely very awkward, but that's about the extent of what you learn about him. The relationships the characters form are quite cute, though the romance is underdeveloped. But then, I don't really expect developed romance from a children's book. Throughout the entirety of the novel, a prevalent theme becomes evident; We all have a fire within us, and it is called creativity. This message is expressed in every essence of The Fire Within. The protagonist, David Rain, finds his fire within while discovering inspiration. David manages this only with the help of his special dragon, Gadzooks who often writes ideas down on the notepad he was kilned with. David receives inspiring ideas from Gadzooks only in his imagination. Or does he? Aside from the beginning and the very end, the human kid has no point-of-view scenes. He's just a pawn the dragons literally toss around. The baby drake has no point of view scenes, period. The teen dragon is worried about adult things, like losing his honor and courting a female. Not relatable for the target audience, very much.
