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 - Kasey Giard
For author Chris D'Lacey, the "Last Dragon Chronicles" really began with a hungry squirrel. Little did he know that in telling the squirrel's story, he would ultimately stumble upon a whole world of dragons. Together the D'Lacey's reveal the origins of this bestselling series, from its humble beginnings as a story about an acorn shortage, to the development of the clay and real dragons and the dragon world beyond. The authors comment on various scenes from the books, revealing the inspiration leading to the development of characters and themes, giving fans a behind-the-scenes experience they can take back into their next readings of the beloved dragon stories. It is as easy to fall in love with author Chris D'Lacey as it is with any of his characters. Readers will enjoy exploring how an author develops a story, and indeed how that story sometimes takes unexpected turns, becoming something more than the author's initial concept. Reviewer: Kasey Giard

I've read a lot of reviews saying it has nothing to do with the series. It says on the cover that its a companion. I think it is a very useful guide to the series.

"Fireclan will never be taken" dragonstar spat. Then the ground was cleared as he fought goldenstar with all his might. "Go back where you came from. I still have all nine of my lives" dragonstar's gaze struck fear in the heart of goldenstar. "Youll never win. Ill lose all my lives before you take my clan. You are just like Tigerstar." "Im nothing like him" goldenstar's pelt bristled with rage. "Prove it goldenstar leave now before anyone else gets hurt. Or I swear by Starclan I will... TO BE CONTINUED ON THE FIRE WITHIN
