The Fire Eternal Book Review

The Fire Eternal Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Feb 17, 2010
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

The fourth book in the Last Dragon Chronicles is finally here. Kidzworld reviews Chris D’Lacey’s fiery new novel The Fire Eternal.

The Fire Eternal Rating: 4


Author: Chris D’Lacey

Even though five years have passed since David Rain’s death, his friends and family are still dealing with their loss. His partner, Zanna, still writes letters to him every Valentine’s Day as if he were on vacation. Sixteen year old Lucy, on the other hand, hasn’t given up hope. She’s sure that David is still alive, trapped somewhere in the frozen Arctic.


Born from a Letter

Lucy emails Tam Farrell, a super cute journalist, hoping he can help find David and prove to the world that he’s still alive. But David’s case is a mystery. There is no record of his past, where he lived or who his parents were. It seems like his existence began with a letter he sent to Liz Pennykettle asking her for a place to stay. To get a little background information on David, Tam gets closer to Zanna. He pretends to be a customer at her new age shop, The Healing Touch. But it doesn’t take Zanna long to figure out Tam’s hidden agenda.


The Dying North

Meanwhile, things are changing in the north. Global Warming is hitting at full force: the ice caps are melting, the polar bears are starving and storms are brewing. At home, everyone can feel this shift, even the dragons that live in the Pennykettle household. And David’s 5 year old daughter Alexa may be the north’s only hope.


The Bottom Line

The Fire Eternal by Chris D’Lacey is an adventurous story that follows two separate storylines at once: some chapters venture to the dangerous north, and others follow the lives of the Pennykettles, the Rain’s and their dragons. This book is a fantastic read, but we recommend you begin the series with book one, The Fire Within.

    Dragon Powers - Hot or Not?

    • Hot. I'd love to have dragon powers.
    • No way. I'm way cooler as just me.
    • Maybe, but only if Fu Dog is my guardian.

Like seriously, its okay to be girly, it's not like it's a bad thing. Why is everyone so determined to seem like a boy/tomboy? Being girly is just as good as being a tomboy. Agreed.
