When Jonah Drake and Ffyrnig, the Red Dragon of Wales, defeat the demons of the Underworld that attack Hereford, everyone in the area thinks that normality will return. But within two days there is the dreadful news that the Night Creatures have swarmed towards London. Accompanied by SAS Air Troopers, who ride eight of the Lesser Dragons of the Marches, Jonah and the Great Dragon fly to London, where they find that they must fight a monstrous water serpent. But the streets around St Paul's Cathedral and the Millennium Bridge are deserted. Where are the Night Creatures? When the demons are discovered, the dragons use their firepower to try to drive them back underground. But an appalling accident happens. The UK's only hope now of ridding the country of the Night Creatures comes in a stray remark made by the Great Dragon. Much against the Prime Minister's better judgement, Jonah and Ffyrnig must fly alone to the Arctic to look for help.

The exciting saga of Jonah and The Last Great Dragon -Ffyrnig - continues with The Menace of the Night Creatures. Although this can be a stand alone, it would be much more informative if the first book - Legend of the Heart Eaters - is read first.. Having not read the first book, I felt I had missed the basic information and understanding related in the beginning story. Jonah was approached in Wales by the SAS Air Troopers imploring him to call upon the Great Dragon - Ffyrnig - in attempt to save London from the Underground Creatures set loose by the battle of the dragons. Fearfully, Jonah's realized he must go alone to approach Ffyrnig since no body else could do it. The dragon's help was direly needed. It was the only chance of saving London. With her quick wit and uplifting manner, Erin was a great help to him last time. This time she could not help for fear of what it would do to her parents. Could he really face Ffyrnig alone? Would the dragon or anyone be able to save London? Jonah woulld soon be shocked to discover there were more dragons - more than anyone would have ever imagined! Could Ffyrnig persuade them to assist? Would the dragons let SAS help? This is an action-packed tale with a few unusual, interesting "spins". Creatively written, it keeps the reader's interest to the last page. The content is too violent for younger elementary age children. I would recommend it for ages 11 to 15. All those who are dragon fans will love it! The dragons are very endearing and, at times, humorous, yet, retaining their ferociousness. The author has aptly described the scenes and has brought the characters to life. The Book Cover is a good fit as is the Title. My review of this book offers a strong Four Stars rating.
