Talk about a great book! You would never think that Monkey and Shimmer become friends. Cool twist. I just love how Shimmer sence of pride gets her into trouble. When you are an outlawed dragon trouble is the last thing you want. WOOPS! I think I've said to much. Well I hope you love this book as much as I do!

Dragon Steel I would say that this book is a good book to read. And the fact that the book is unrealistic is not of any importance because it was not meant to be so. The fantasy novel, Dragon Steel was written for enjoyment by the author Laurence Yep. Laurence Yep has also written at least 25 other novels most of which are based on a fictitious Chinese family in America that face real historical problems. But Dragon steel is a book that was written with characters that are similar to the Chinese characters that represent years, major attributes, wisdom and other such things. The Dragon Steel book is not officially considered to be part of a quadriplegic series but there are three other books that consist of a number of simultaneously continuing events it would be the second book in a set, the first being Dragon Of The Lost Sea. The following two books would be Dragon Cauldron and Dragon War, which I have not read yet. This book would be a good book to read because it interacts with the reader and keeps him or her interested throughout the entire book with new minor conflicts occurring all the time, and ever-growing suspense. As problems are solved there are always more problems occurring in the story. And while only half of the chapters have cliffhangers the whole story flows incredibly smooth. The story is about a dragon who was exiled from her clan when she was little more than a child, The sea in which they lived has been captured by a powerful witch who keeps it in a pearl that allows her to change into a mist this allows her to often escape capture the exiled dragon princess is fortunate enough to capture the witch with tools that prevent her from performing offensive magic. That is where the last story ends leaving Dragon Steel to take its place. Dragon Steel she finds her clan containing many thousands of her kin has been made outlawed and put in a low class where even THIER queen who is ill near death must pull her share. Once more they are exiled by her own uncle the high king. In her uncle¿s kingdom she must retrieve heavily guarded items needed to restore their sea with little more than the forces of herself and one friend, which she must free from one of the most often patrolled dungeons the king has. They must also battle unknown and unexpected horrors and solve puzzles to get the items they want in a limited amount of time. Overall the book is well written relaxing and entertaining to the reader and is not hard to understand. The author who wrote the book did so in such a way that things go at a nice pace but still gives detailed descriptions about almost everything rather than spending a whole chapter on one small thing and making the story seem to drag along. This is an excellent book to read even if you have not read Dragon of the Lost Sea because there is a detailed poem at the beginning of the story that tells the reader about previous events.

I read this book out of sequence. It was so good that I want to read the other three. My local library only carries the one book, and I plan to ask them if they can order the other three, as well. I highly recommend this book not only to children but also to adults. I am an adult. I am 45. I enjoyed the book, and I know a 53 year old who also enjoyed the book, so as you can see, it appeals to all ages. It is dramatic and points out how important dreams are and how important friends are. I highly recommend it.

The magical world of Dragium is an underrwater kingdom where dragons and other mysterious creatures live I am thorn the eldest dragon. Now our world is under the reign oh the evil wich Evilen. She has the land under an evil spell wich rises the dead creatures of the sea they eat live dragons. It is up to me and my ary to stop her evil reign and return the planet to its natural beuty. The planet will soon die if we dont do somthing. The day has finally come the day we will fight for our planet. I will essemble the troops in exacly one hour. We have atleast two hundred miles to swim. It hes been an hour the troops and I start our trip we should get there in three hours. In the middle of the underwater mountain range we came accrost an army of the dead creatures they fought fearlessly but we were stronger than them. Finaly we got to the Kingdom of Raugh. When we got there we had to sneak up on the guards it was to easy they died fast. We spread our selves thout the castle massicuring any evil being we could find. Then the armys came it was tough and I lost ten men but we won but there was still the wich she was very powerful and would be hard to find . It took forevera but we finally found her. we fought for days befor we beat her. we had to go get Monkey so we could restore the land. He worked his spell and the land was restored.
