    Excellent fantasy read

    It’s a delight to return to the unique fantasy world of the Dragon Dreamer series. Like the first in series book two, Dragon Lightning is so beautifully imagined that you immediately become immersed in an adventure involving dragons and octopuses. The author creates a breathtaking world with sounds and smells and colours of the sea, ice and fire. Besides the vividly imagined world, what I love about this series is the intriguing and imaginative science behind diverse fantasy such as dragon’s fire and healing. It makes the story so compelling and believable. The characters are also beautifully drawn. Scree, an heroic octopus, is philosophical, brave and decent and my favourite, with the tetchy ice-dragon, Drakor a close second. The blended community deals with a range of threats from aggressive giant squids to a life threatening volcanic eruption—intelligently and courageously. Dragon Lightning is a brilliant book and I haven’t read anything quite like it with its beauty, heart and creativity. I thoroughly recommend it.

    UNLIKELY ALLIES

    If you read Book One in this series, you probably already love the complex communities of dragons, octopi and squid that you have encountered. These beautifully described creatures introduce their readers to unique habitats in a fantasy world explained in real scientific terms. Readers become immersed in adventures, while learning about real scientific phenomena like volcanoes, lightning and glaciers. Book Two introduces us to Drakor who is experiencing the red lightning from a volcanic eruption. He lands on a thin piece of ice. Arak, Taron and Dorali are traveling up north on a wooden skiff. They come upon the injured Drakor and rescue the ice dragon. He is mystified by these golden dragons as well as the octopi traveling with them. Each species will teach and learn from each other. The dragon communities are aware that their communities may face extinction. Their octopi friends under the sea fear underwater destruction. Readers learn about the “might makes right” society of the ice dragons and the democratic, healing ways of the golden dragons. The peaceful octopi must use force to defend themselves against the squid. Principles of science are interwoven with fantasy and philosophy. Smooth flowing prose accompanied by simple but elegant illustrations mark this tale as a winner for fans of science, fantasy and adventure. Widespread appeal for pre teens, teens and adult audiences. What adventures await the dragons in Book Three?

    Best. Dragons. Ever.

    This is the second Dragon Dreamer book. If you haven't read the first one, you can still completely enjoy Dragon Lightning. If you have read the first one, you'll be happy to meet your favorite characters again when they return for a new adventure that introduces the legendary ice dragons. Drakor, an ice dragon, is the hero of this new story. Coming from a dragon culture where might makes right, he is burdened with foresight that a disaster awaits his island but no one will listen to him because he's not the strongest. Can he, with the help of his new friends and the new skills they share with him, help him to save his clan? This series has the most unique and fully-realized dragons. The world-building has scientific, instead of magical, underpinnings. The author creates complex cultures for her creatures in which all the details, from how dragon lightning is generated to how the intricate, beautiful dragon nests are created, are explained by physics, chemistry and biology. Also, the reader gets full immersion into the art, history, social norms and foods of several different cultures on a level that other books/series just don't match. How these cultures clash and come together in complicated ways is one of the author's favorite themes. But, the real question is if this is a good story? Yup. You'll be cheering for Drakor!
