Discover the mystery of the dragons and polar bears in our review of Chris D'Lacey's Icefire novel!

Title: Icefire
Author: Chris D'Lacey
Ages: 9+
Rating: 3


Ancient legends of polar bears, dragons and a tear of fire collide in Chris D'Lacey's Icefire! Read on for our review of the secrets and adventure in this novel!


Magical Dragons

David's a student and a writer living with Liz Pennykettle and her daughter Lucy in a house packed full of clay dragons. But, there's magic in the air and it's more than the fact that Liz's dragons are secretly alive! Before he knows it, David is up to his eyebrows in ancient legends about polar bears and the frozen tear of the last dragon in Icefire, Chris D'Lacey's sequel to his popular novel The Fire Within.


Peculiar Houseguests

Living with the kooky Pennykettle family isn't David's idea of a good time, especially when he keeps getting pulled into weird adventures with clay dragons that they insist are real! And, when a magic polar bear shows up, things get really weird. Ancient legends, old enemies, weird coincidences, wishing dragons, strange magic and a hedgehog make Icefire a busy book!


Ancient Enemies

With all the weirdness going on, Icefire manages to go cold for two reasons. The biggest problem is that the beginning is seriously "meh" for the first 50 pages or so. Once you get past that, there's a lot going on, but it never really grabs you and makes you go "Wow!".


The Bottom Line

Chris D'Lacey's Icefire is almost cool! It has lots of interesting stuff happening, but it takes too long to get started and never manages to be really exciting. If you're a hardcore dragon fan, you'll probably enjoy it, but go read Eldest first.

Cutest Creature - Dragons or Bears?

  • Dragons are way cuter.
  • Bears are totally cute.
  • They're both awful!
  • Nothing's cuter than me!

Although I think a tree stump has more brains than the two of them combined, I would rather have Trump in office. I really dislike the guy, but his ideas are more my taste than Clinton's. He also seems sturdier than she is, mentally I mean (and physically too ofc but that doesn't matter).  I also gained more respect for Donald Trump over the past week or two.  I don't know how many of you are aware, but Louisiana was recently affected by a very bad flood. As natural disasters do, it destroyed housings and people's personal belongings and took lives. The damage to them was nowhere near as bad as that, but some of my family was affected by this flood, which I guess could give me a bit of a bias.    Donald Trump personally went down to Baton Rouge and handed out toys for children, food, and clothes, among other things. He also made a contribution fund to the state's flood relief charity. What did Hillary Clinton do? Go on Jimmy Kimmel and make fun of Trump quotes. Even if it was only to give himself a better name, the fact that he was so generous enough to provide for these poor people when Clinton, and even Obama, did not would definitely earn my vote if I were legal enough to participate in elections (which I hate to say because I don't care for both Trump and politics in general).       Though, I'd rather my cat be president.
