Dragons, polar bears, the arctic north and ancient legends collide in the third book in Chris d'Lacey's Dragons series! Here's our book review.

Author: Chris d'Lacey

The third novel in the dragons series starts with David off in the arctic with his girlfriend Zanna on a research project and writing a new novel in his spare time. Then things get crazy with polar bears, the Pennykettle dragons, the evil Gwilanna and a new star that heralds... something big. What's up in this book? Find out with our review.

Danger! Drama! Dragons!

David's new story starts coming to life, a Pennykettle mystery begins unfolding, ancient legends about people, dragons and bears rear their head and even more strangeness abounds as the fire star approaches! Picking up the pace, this book is crammed with action as everything builds towards a final confrontation between the forces of good and evil, bears and dragons, and fantasy and normality.

Golly! Gosh! Gadzooks!

If you've read the other books in this series, prepare to be amazed as everything comes together in this one! It's an intense ride that barely gives you time to catch your breath before it's all "Grar! Polar bear eating your face!" again. Fire Star is a must-read with an incredible ending that will leave you waiting for book four - Fire Eternal.


Perilous Polar Problems

It's a must-read for fans of the series, but can leave new readers confused since there's barely any introduction or explanation. It just dives into the action so it really helps to read the earlier books first. It also feels like it's supposed to be the end of a series that has been changed to let the author write more dragon stories.


Bottom Line

While a bit confusing for new readers, Fire Star is a treat for series fans. It will leave you craving more of David, Zanna, the Pennykettle dragons and the mysterious... well, you'll have to read it to find out.

    I'm drowning in my own sorrow, I feel trapped in this dark place, Hoping for a better day tomorrow, I just need time and space, Or is it too late? My happiness has already been replaced, Now my heart is out for debate, Does anyone see ## ####? For gods sake, When you look in my eyes all you see is rain, It's my loss and Satans gain, Why am I letting him win? I'm not the type to ever sin! I'm breaking down, It's to late to turn this around, But what more am I really needing? I have friends and family that love me And in school my education is succeeding, It's so dark why can't I see? This depression is taking over me, This is a horrible sight, Is it all in my head? Taking medication every night, I can't sleep rolling around In my bed, "I can't take this I'm done fighting myself"  is what I said. This chemical imbalance in my head caused by fighting with oneself is taking over my health, Have I truly givin up? Playing this role is tough, Being happy I have learned to pretend, But faking a smile everyday is not enough, I try to think positive, But things pile up on me and become to rough, The story of my life is this the end? Stomach tied in knots, eyes bottled up, Now depression is my new best friend, I feel like I've been driving on the same road for days, and finally hit a dead end, I've never done anything to hurt anyone, this isn't fair, Someone help me is anyone there?!? I'm dying for help, Where is the warmth and light? These things to me are unfelt, There it is, I see the light, Standing here I sigh, As it comes towards me it's so bright, it's shining in my eyes and BAMM!  God has saved me once again, I get a second chance , For love and romance, My life is renewed, I get to start fresh start new, Now i can do things I never got to do, And its All thanks to you, My guardian angel sent from above, Here to guide me with all of your endless love, You were by my side this whole time. And guided me through , For that matter, Now and forever, I will always love you
