Discover the mystery of the dragons and polar bears in our review of Chris DLaceys 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!

Angry because some turd threatened the Bomb outcast council saying that it's just the role player's council rip-off. I feel like I'm disrespected.
