    Wonderful adventure from start to finish!

    Mommy Bookworm's Thoughts: I thoroughly enjoyed this book right from the get-go all the way through to the end. Like Dahlia states below, I don't really like having to wait for the next book to come out, but I guess that's the life of getting sucked into a series!! I tend to stay away from many series type books, but I truly enjoyed Dragon Stones and I look forward to the other books in the series! The descriptions of the dragons and characters in the book are very good and believable! My daughters and I read this together on our Nook Color and took turns reading each time. They were able to increase their vocabulary and we had fun reading it. We laughed and cried along the way and were shocked at some of the things revealed in the story. It was a great page-turner, full of dragons, dwarfs, humans, dragon riders, sprites, evil necromancers, close calls, magic and mystery with every chapter!

    The information received from the publisher has this classified as Young Adult/Fantasy. However, I believe that children ages 8+ would truly enjoy the story. Daisy is 7 years old and she did sometimes get distracted as we were reading aloud, but she still enjoyed the parts she did listen to and pay attention to along the journey. Teenagers could definitely read the book on their own and enjoy it - if they enjoy dragons and magic!

    Dahlia Bookworm's Thoughts (11 years old): I like how the book caught my attention right from the Prologue and kept my attention through the whole book. I like how the map is in the front of the book so we could look at the map when it mentions different places in the book. I do not like that there is a cliffhanger and I have to wait a while before the next book comes out. I like how they had troubles in each place they went and still got away. I like the dragons and characters in the book. I can read it mostly on my own with a little help with some words and names. I would recommend it to kids of all ages and grown-ups too, especially those who like dragon stories.

    Daisy Bookworm's Thoughts (7 years old): I like how there were dragons in the book. I like the adventures they went on. I like some of the surprises in the story. I don't like how I have to wait for the next book to find out what happens. I think the names in the book are funny. I got to learn some new words because we took turns reading the book. I would recommend it to other kids too because it is a fun story.

    Zoe's Book Reviews

    Dragon Stones is a wonderful book with great characters, my favorite character is Sela. It would be really cool to ride a dragon.

    In Dragon Stones a young boy named Elias and his grandmother live in a little town it the mountains when Elias is out getting some honeycomb he finds a strange stone. He shows it to his grandmother and she tells him to hide it. Then the imperials come, he must run.

    Kristian Alva wrote a wonderful book with lots of imagination. Anybody and everyone will love this book.
