Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for the Last Dragon Chronicles:
"d'Lacey's characters are realistic and engaging. . . . A page-turner." --THE HORN BOOK

"Chris d'Lacey's writing is sometimes exciting and sometimes silly. But that seems in keeping with the worlds he created -- one that seems almost real and one that is beyond imagination." --THE WASHINGTON POST

". . . [T]he story, with its involving and thought-provoking plot full of clever little dragons, mystical polar bears, and spiritual and ecological aspects, will appeal to many fantasy lovers." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
At birth, our hero is given an average name, David. He thinks he lives a normal life with his mom and dad. Yet, he dreams weird and terrifying nightmares that lead the family to an adventure where they discover their true identities and how they must play a part in saving the world. Well maybe...This story gives young readers an imaginative way to perceive how the universe began utilizing several concepts of creation from mythological to biblical to evolution. Upon learning of David's unique characteristics, Counselor Stromberg suggests sending him to the librarium to seek relaxation, but reality dictates that this strange building and overseer, Mr. Henry, educate David not only on the love of books, but it also watches him change from an adolescent into a young man literally overnight. David's companion, Rosa, helps him to seek the truth and finds herself alone when the decisions become harder and harder to make. This action-packed fantasy delves into the young readers imagination and curiosity into where do we come from and what lies behind and ahead of us. Some adults may find it offensive to their religious beliefs. I feel this strong and complicated plot driven novel and large range of scenarios keeps us from getting to know the cast and their motivation without rereading parts over and over again. I do appreciation the original story line, and the book is well written. This book is part of the "Last Dragon Chronicles" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
