    Good Book!

    After the completion of my summer reading book, Dragons of the Lost Sea I had found it to be a reasonably good book. I was lookng for a fantasy fiction type novel and I got just what I was looking for when reading this book. I wouldn't go so far to call it one of my favorite books, but it was a bearable summer reading book for me. The book had a lot of reference to Chinese mythology, and Chinese mythical creatures.This, I thought made the book somewhat original and unique.The main characters in the book are, Shimmer, an exiled dragon princess who is trying to rescue her dragon clan's stolen sea from the evil water sirit, Civet. The other main character is an orphan boy by the name of Thorn. Shimmer and Thorn are first presented to each other when Shimmer is passing through a small village(Thorn's home). Shimmer admires Thorn's unusual kindness towards her. Which she thinks to be uncommon seeing that she has profiled humans as being the most rude and vile cratures on the planet. In seeing this she rescues Thorn from his abusive foster father, and allows him to accompany her on her quest. Together they work together to try and overcome Civet's superior dark, magic powers.I thought this was a bood book, but to me it seemed that it was meand for a younger audience. Most likely best fit for kids around the age of ten or twelve. Maybe then it would have been a great deal more enjoyable, but to me it was still a good book. Again I thought it was a good book, and was made interesting with its Chinese mythology and fantasy. It is also a very good example fo a classical fantasy novel. I would mainly recommend this book to kids of a younger age, just because, to me, it seemed that it was meant for a younger auduence. Even so, it was still an enjoyable book that i think many people would enjoy.

    Great book

    I've read this book three times, and enjoyed it every time. This book seriously doesn't deserve all of the negative comments.

    Dragon of the Lost Sea (Dragons of the Sea Series)

    I don't really remember why I picked up this book, but I can assure you I wish I hadn't. This book is extremely hard to read, and I love reading. The plot drags on and on and the story itself barely makes any sense. Wasn't worth the read at all.

    Dragon of the Lost Sea (Dragons of the Sea Series)

    This book was such a bore....the story dragged on for what seemed like forever and doesn't make sense. This book is good if....wait, no....this book isn't good for anything. Unless maybe you need something to burn in the fireplace.

    HORRIBLE

    I don't know what you people consider a good book but this is NOT one of them. I had to read this in ILA class and my whole class hated it. It made no sense and was as boring as watching paint dry. The charatcers are not believable and it's hard to tell whose talking. The worst book I have ever read, by far.

    This is a Great Book!

    Laurence Yep is my favorite author. He is very descriptive, and makes his books interesting.This book was about a Dragon, sent away from her clan.The evil Civet took away her sea to destroy her own home town. Shimmer met Thorn, and they became th best of friends. At first, Shimmer does not trust Thorn. She learns to trust him near the end.

    GREAT BOOK!

    This book is completely awe inspiring with it's weaving tale of two figures, a orphan boy name Thorn and a banished dragon princess name Shimmer. This book is absolutely wonderful with its comedy and enchanting storyline. I recommend this book to all people over he age of 7.

    This is a great book about a dragon's friendship with a little orphan, human boy named Thorn. They were on a mission to get some magic pebbles from the evil Civet. Will they ever get them? You will have to read the book to find out.
