Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Publisher's Weekly Review of Ferno the Fire Dragon (Beast Quest #1):

This boy-vs-dragon tale, the first in the BeastQuest series, makes for an ideal pre-Hobbit read and sword-and-sorcery introduction. Tom lives in the village of Errinel with his blacksmith uncle; his mother died when he was a baby, and his father left not long after for a quest from which he never returned. When the crops in Tom's village start to burn and the horses turn up dead, villagers begin to suspect a curse. Tom (for whom "the closest he came to thrilling quests was when he ran errands for his uncle") volunteers to travel to see King Hugo and enlist his help.
The author packs a great deal of action into this brief tale. When Tom arrives at the palace, he learns that problems extend well outside his village--others report tidal waves and blizzards, all thought to be the work of "the Beasts." The king reveals that the Dark Wizard Malvel is to blame, and recognizes Tom as the son of Taladon, entrusting the boy with a silver key that can unlock the charmed collar on Ferno the Fire Dragon and release the beast from Malvel's control. This debut tale in an episodic chain of one-beast-per-volume battles (Tom successfully completes the inaugural quest, of course), makes for a promising start to a fantasy franchise with a likable yound hero and a refreshingly wide-eyed, old-fashioned approach to the genre.

Meet the Author


Adam Blade is in his late twenties, and was born in Kent, England. His parents were both history teachers and amateur artists, and Adam grew up surrounded by his father's paintings of historic English battles which left a lifelong mark on his imagination. He was also fascinated by the ancient sword and shield that hung in his father's office. Adam’s father said they were a Blade family heirloom.

Sadly, Adam does not have his own Ice Dragon or Ghost Panther. But he really wishes he did!

    Another great edition to the series

    I just couldn't wait until I got my hands on this book. After reading all the other books in the Bbeast Quest series I just couldn't hold all my excitement when it was time for me to get my very own copy of Soltra the Stone Charmer. When I started reading I just couldn't stop. The story line was great and the book was thrilling. I also loved how the character's personal live was used to make the story line even more thrilling. This book is also great for sharing with friends because mine love this series. So if you haven't bought this book yet you should. I can't wait for the next book.
