Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Foucart
The fourth book in the "Dragons" series picks up story threads begun in previous books, bringing the story arc forward. Zanna is still trying to get over the death of her partner, David Rain, while raising their little daughter Alexa. Yet her part-sister Lucy refuses to believe that David is actually dead, and that he somehow survived that disastrous day in the Arctic. She points to his still-living dragons as proof, but no one will listen. When her theory receives no support from her sister or mother Liz, Lucy enlists the help of Tam Ferrel, a reporter with an interest in David's disappearance after the publication of his bestselling children's books. Meanwhile, in the Arctic, three polar bears are on a quest to save the world and one of them has a deep secret that affects the rest of the characters. Fans of the series up to this point will enjoy the continuation of the lives of their favorite characters and the many secrets that begin to reveal themselves through the course of the novel. However, the book does not stand alone well, with many sections being hard to follow without already knowing something about the world and characters. Reviewer: Kathleen Foucart
School Library Journal

Gr 5-8

In this sequel to Fire Star (Orchard, 2007), university student David Rain has disappeared on a research trip to the Arctic and is presumed dead. His landlady, Liz Pennykettle; her daughter, Lucy; and his girlfriend, Zanna, mother to his five-year-old daughter, are devastated. Lucy is convinced that David is not dead and is determined to find him. She contacts a local journalist, Tam Farrell (read Lin?) to help her. Her potter mother's clay dragons are real and can come alive. Meanwhile, powerful alien beings called the Fain, who use mind control to gain power, have returned to Earth. They had used this planet as a breeding ground for dragons, but all of the original dragons have been destroyed except Gawain, who lies sleeping in a rock waiting to be awakened to activate the Fire Eternal, or creation force. An evil offshoot of the Fain, the Ix, wants to harness the force for evil. Wise polar bears, an ancient witch/raven, a shape-shifting cat, Arthurian imagery, and a terrifying "darkling" all contribute to a wild, sometimes confusing ride. Threats of global warming and ecological disaster frame the action. Readers will need to read all of the books in the series in order to grasp the evolution of the plot. The characters, with their various magical abilities, are well drawn, and the collection of G-named clay dragons, each with a special job, provides a whimsical touch. A worthy addition to books on dragon lore.-Quinby Frank, Green Acres School, Rockville, MD

    Loved it

    I loved everything anout this book but I especially loved the ending and I'm not gonna be a spoiler but the ending melted my heart. I love Alexa and Zanna and I also think Tam and Lucy should go out cause I mean he jumps through vertecs to ehat coulf be certain death for her which I think is so romantic. If you haved read all 3 first books continue I almost did not want to continue cause of Dabid and all but in this book micles happen and not everything is what it seems

    Fabulous book!

    I think The Fire Eternal is a great book! More people should read it. It's very exiting and a quick read! I also recommend reading the rest of the series, but in order. It's a great series!

    Blown Away

    I'm amazed at how fast this series has grown. From thin children's book to very large(and very heavy) teen/kid book, it's impressed me, made me laugh and made me cry. If you don't like a fiction twist on real life, then don't read the whole series. But if you do like that kind of stuff, it's amazing. You'll love it, I promise you. And you know, I bet you your favorite character will become...<BR/><BR/>Uh, actually, that might spoil everything.

    Coming from a kid

    This is a thrilling series and Chris D'lacey captivates you more with every book. It's not just some dumb fantasy dragon book, it's a mystery of the arctic with characters that change in each book. It's fun and I have read this series like a trillion times. I wish i owned Snigger and the Nutbeast and White Fire. My favorite characters are Lucy and David. And don't forget Snigger! hrrrrr!

    Best of the series

    This is 'hands down' the best book in the David Rain series! The mystery and suspence of the story is thriiling! It makes you think, every sentence, about what's going to happen next. The details are great, the setting is perfect, I can't name one mistake this book has in it and I've read it seven times! I'm already trying to get the next book in the series 'Dark Fire?' on hold. This book is pure genius and Chris D' Lacey is the best author in the world from my point of view!

    WOW!

    WOW! This book had to be the best in the whole series. There was suspense, drama, mysteries, and a great ending. I can't wait for the 5th book.

    Wonderful Book - Highly Recommended

    This was a great book from the start. Non-stop action & very interesting to follow the story line to the end. I read this book in a weekend because it was a book that I just couldn't put down.

    A Student Review

    I recently read The Fire Eternal, a fantasy by Chris D¿Lacey. The book is very interesting. There is a lot of detail and it leaves a lot of problems unsolved. In this book the dead rises and enemies turn to allies. The book is very hard to understand if you haven¿t read the rest of the series first.<BR/> Chris D¿Lacey is very mysterious. He always leaves questions to be asked. He uses a wide expanse of vocabulary that most people wouldn¿t understand. He always answers his questions with an even more interesting one. After the first few chapters, there is almost always a lot of suspense.<BR/> Anyone that likes dragons, polar bears, magical beings, and a lot of suspense should read this book.

    Best in the Series

    This book had the kind of mystery that I loved in The Fire Within, but still had the type of fantasy from Icefire and Fire Star. I read The Fire Within on recommendation from a friend, and ended up spending whole weekends just sitting and reading these books.
