The book is about A little girl Lara who is so obsessed with magic. She has a difficult time dealing with magic whenever she's bullied at school.

As someone who loves dragons, magic, and female characters, this book review caught my attention right away. While a young child going to wizard school and eventually having to fight evil forces does sound like a quick Harry Potter summary, I am still interested in reading this book. It's good to know that the first book is mostly setting up the characters and world building, but still leaves the reader wanting more at the end. Thank you for the review, I look forward to reading more on this book!

Bullying is still a problem encountered in some school. Lara is bullied as a new student in magic school. The headteacher cones to her aid upon learning of her magical powers.

Not my cup of tea, but even so, I think there's a room for a girl-power version of Harry Potter. :happy-cheerleadersmileygirl:

The reviewer says, Dragon Born is similar to the incredibly famous Harry Potter in many ways. It will surely be a good read for children, young adults, and elders who like fantasies and magical stories. I wish this book to be as popular as Harry Potter.

It's really awesome to know that there is another interesting young adult fantasy novel just like Harry Potter. Hey! If it's similar to Harry Potter, then it has to be interesting like Harry Potter. Dragon born is gonna be a great novel and I look forward to reading it

Lets give a chance, the story is looks interesting and exciting. If the we compare in to Harry Potter its just a small dot. Harry Potter is a big Boom. The story like this should be read it made up with effort.

This sounds like a book I would love. I love everything about fantasy novels and magic. Even if it is similar to Harry Potter, I feel for me it would be great since I am a huge fan.

This sounds like a very fun adventure! Young readers are curious and this review gives all the hints of something to come. I am very interested in reading more about the world of Azmantium, Lara and head mistress Aelwen!

The intro is so inviting.
I liked #Harry portal and if Dragon born is similar to it,
Then I will sure enjoy reading it.
