I’ve read a couple of books from this Author and I can say that this one is surprising! I love books that rolls into each because it acts like a movie. I wish I was this teenager; finding out that I was a dragon. That’s amazing. The author’s words are always at its best.

Latest Review: Dragon Born by Ela Lourenco

A she-dragon trying to survive in the human world? It definitely peaks my interest, and I love the review. As for cliffhanger stories, they're always my go-to

Latest Review: The Attuned by Gary B. Haley

Thanks for the great review. More than the literal part of the story, I believe there is a "dragon" in each of us which we struggle to hide but it insists on being shown out. Our dragons can save humanity but can also destroy it if not kept on check.

Thank you for this lovely review - this book series sounds like it is right up my alley and I am going to add this to my want-to-read list for sure! I absolutely love fantasy books that are set in a different world that needs describing, and the way you've summarised it is already making video-game-style cut scenes appear in m mind's eye. It sounds like it's all very vividly described!

I'm less keen about the puppy love, but it's hard to find a book featuring teenagers that doesn't have some romance in it, so I guess I'll bear with it. And yes, it sounds a real shame that the training isn't gone into in detail - exercises and progress are always a fun and sometimes inspiring read. Usually, that's also where one can gain a deeper understanding of how exactly the magic / abilities in this particular world works, whether it be something to do with resolve or focus or imagination or just directing a "tingly" feeling to a particular body part.

Glad to hear it is beautifully edited, can't wait to give it a read soon!

Let me tell you what this review did to me. It made me want to go get the first book and spend the hours of reading it beside the sea. And it reminds me of my childhood fantasies. This' a must read! But the first book first!

After reading the review I am interested in this book for the mystical creatures and who does not love a little puppy love!

I am not usually too interested in fantasy, but this sounds like a fun read. I love a good coming-of-age story and it sounds like the character has pretty typical human traits, so the dragon/shape shifting aspect sounds like a fun twist!

This sounds like a series that is right up my alley. I'm loving the positive views of dragons, considering that most of the time they are seen as more evil.

This book sounds a bit like Eragon, which is a book I enjoyed immensely. It sound like a wonderful series that could turn into a great movie. Thank you for such an informative review

this is a very good book for the young adults, information flows very well and it's better connected. I liked it, no appropriate sex, no abuse of language

The child of fire
By Ela Laurenco


much interesting since it sparks out imaginations on reactions of these supernatural creatures again it employs a vantage view of the existing universe and other universe we hear of
