A very colorful description of this fantasy world, which reminds me of the movie, "Dark Crystal".

Child of Fire is a telling story of a coming-of-age child hero. The turmoils thrown her way while facing her destiny of being a dragon are realistic and invigorating. I personally love stories like this that make us think outside the box and breach to new worlds of ideas and magic.

Lara is clearly obsessed with magic. She has a difficult time dealing with students in her new surrounding. would recommend the book to lovers of thrillers.

Absolutely love it. I take real delight in fantasy books and this one! She's a dragon shifter... How cool is that!? The cover doesn't really tell much but I love it anyway. It's been my childhood dream to be a firebender. Lol

I like the way Lara hides her dragon nature to avoid being persecuted. It reminds me of a time I had secrets just to avoid being criticized by my friends. Cant wait for the third series.

A wonderful review of the fantasy book, set in a land with blue grass, lilac skies and green seas. It definitely piques at my interest, as I start to wonder how Lara, having just discovered that she is also a dragon, comes to term with this aspect of herself, and actually uses it to become the star of the story. It would be also interesting to know how she wards off the "bad guys" who suspect that she could be a dragon, ready to kill her off as other dragons were eliminated long ago. Definitely worth a read for those who enjoy other fiction books.
