    Slow start, but decent first installment

    Bryan Davis has made himself known writing primarily young adult fantasy. In fact, probably his most popular series is Dragons in our Midst, followed closely by its spin-off/sequel series, Oracles of Fire. In Starlighter, Davis returns to stories of dragons and slayers - but this time the dragons are evil. The first three chapters of this book were slow and somewhat predictable, in my opinion. However, the story begins to pick up near the end of chapter three and moves at a steady pace from there, even more after a major plot point early in the book. The book is never truly dull, but those who are looking for action from page one may be disappointed. The characters are strong and believable. A few have character flaws they need to work on, but they will mature throughout the series. And that does make it better. I will look forward to watching them grow. However, Koren reminds me far too much of Sapphira Adi from Oracles of Fire. I like Sapphira, but I would rather not read about her in Dragons of Starlight. As far as his theology goes, it is sound. This is especially important, because even fictional works should be God-honoring. But in Starlighter, no objectionable theology will be found. Some conversations between Koren and the Prince I thought were a little too forthright, but that could be due to being familiar with Mr. Davis' theology and coming to recognize it quickly. Do I think the book is his best? No, but it is not bad, either. If you are into fantasy and want to read about dragons and humans - and this time cheer for the slayers - then you will probably enjoy this book.
