I'm only 14 and I read this book when i was 12 years old.I usually don't read books but whenever I started reading this book I couldn't put it down.It is so far my favorite book.As I read this book it was like a movie inside my head.My first thought about this book after I read it was that they should make a movie about it just like Eragon.So far I haven't found a book I like better.I found this book at a library at my school when I had to do a book report.At first I asked for Eragon but there was none so the librarian showed me THE SAINT OF DRAGONS.I think this book deserves 5 stars.I'm in 9th grade now turning 15 next month and I'm doing another book report about it. Plus in this way I don't have to read another book.But even if I read another book this year, I would rather review this book and use it instead.(BUT I THINK THEY SHOULD MAKE A MOVIE ABOUT THIS BOOK!!!)

The author is my neighbor :) their daughter is really nice. I knew he was a screenwriter but I didn't know he was an author until thus.

"The Saint of Dragons," by Jason Hightman is the first book in Harper Collin's unique "Saint of Dragons" series. While it is happy in some parts and sad in others, this book is action-packed from the beginning to the end! Do yourself a favor---READ THIS BOOK!

As a girly girl I would probably say dump it. But I like books so much that whatever I judge the title 'boy or girl' that side takes over and reads. This caught my eye BECAUSE of the title. I like books of magic, magical creatures, ect. ect. To say it a bit more frank would be impossible. From the few pages I have read I say it is fascinating.

Uber rad-tastic/ amazing! That is how I would describe this book. It was set in modern times, which was was unexpected. However, this made it even more interesting and different. Imagine walking among dragons and not even realizing it? I could not put it down. I read it in one day. I'm ordering the second book, Samurai, right now!

All you need to to is get past the first chapter, and after that, i couldn't put it down!!!! I read it instead of watching TV, and read it in one and 1/2 days (i woke up at 5:00AM to finish it). The Saint of Dragons is an amazzzing book! Definatly one of my faviorites! i would reccomend it to anyone.

I agree with one of the other writers at first this book was just plain boring, but as I got further into the story I couldn't put it down! When I finished I had to go out and get the second book 'Samurai'. I finished it in three days and now I can't wait for the third!

To tell the truth i seriously didn't like this book as it started out. It reminded me too much of Harry Potter as most books do nowadays. I was practically fed up with people writing about poor little orphan boys who found 'the light' -so to speak- and were taken off on a magical adventure. It had been done, and i didn't want to read about it again. So i put it down. A week later i thought to myself i'd seriously would have wasted my money if i didn't force myself to read it, so i did. Read it i mean. As the plot thickens, the story unwinds, we get to know the main characters a lot more, and we are introduced to fun, excitement, adventure, love and comic relations between three main characters. Three charaters who probably contrast one another quite a bit i must say. The whole idea of the story was brilliant. I wont go into it to create spoilers, but most things i loved about this book was the story, the plot, the charaters and the history. Every night i was up till late reading until i was able to finally turn the final page. I gave this book four stars for a few particular reasons. 1. I was slightly disappointed by the rushed ending. I thought it could have been expanded, but i'm sure we'll know more when the next book comes out. 2. Some points in the language was questionable. I'm not the best person to speak of mistakes in language and grammar, but i thought certain things could have been looked over more carefully. Overall, i thought the book was excellent. I was never bored whilst reading it, and don't see why others should be. It was filled to the brim with everything a good children's book needs and i'm proud to say i look forward to the sequel: 'Saint of Dragons Samurai'.

I'm gob-smacked by the extremes in the reviews. I loved the story in which the pace never let up, and thought the prickly relationship between father and son one of the best features of the story.

I picked this up reluctantly, not being an avid fantasy reader generally, and accidentally really liked it quite a bit. It's just hard to evaluate because it doesn't fit the usual mold of hero-on- quest-in-barbaric-world. It's a non-stop action story for children, who will start wondering where the real dragons are right now. I got it on a table with adult books, which is not where it should be.

I think that about sums it up. I didn't know what to expect when I picked this gem up, but I definitely didn't expect what I got. This is not your standard fantasy book. For one, it's set in the modern age, and not in some 'magic school' hidden away in the neverlands of England, but in Central Park New York, in Venice, Paris, Russia and London. But more than that, the book is very quirky, and it doesn't take itself too seriously. It's not like Lord of the Rings, which tried real hard to convince you that Middle Earth exists. This is a book that assumes you suspended your disbelief when you plunked down your $16. And the wild implausibilities of the story are most of the fun. In a way, the book reminds me of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and James and the Giant Peach. And if some of the book's references go over the head of the average twelve year old (or twenty-four year old), then so what? It's the perfect opportunity to break out the online encyclopedia. At least this book doesn't talk down to kids.

This may sound weird for it being a fantasy, but this book reminded me of Men in Black because of the different look at our own world. I really enjoyed it. It's made for a younger crowd than me I think, but I like that it was simple to understand, so whatever. Plot is twisty and cool and especially the villains are very different, that's the thing that makes it a must-get. Good, filled with action, well done.

I didn't know until after I read it that the story is about the real world, in modern times like now. The dragons are not like dragons, they're like evil people who hide the fact they look like dragons. Awesome idea. Very fastly paced.
