    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was, so far, the weirdest in the series. I will admit that I hadn't read any of the previous books since Fire Star was released, so maybe I lost something that way. Plus this book begins 5 years after the last one ended, so there are a lot of events that happened since that need explaining. I don't think it was over all bad, but the end was just very weird. It seemed like the author was suddenly trying to come up with more plot lines that he could draw into another book or two or three. Like This was, so far, the weirdest in the series.

It seemed like the author was suddenly trying to come up with more plot lines that he could draw into another book or two or three. Like Liz suddenly and randomly becoming pregnant, a piece of obsidian with pure dark fire in it, and Tam knowing about dragons and stuff. And I'm not even sure what happened to David. What is he, exactly? Why the heck was he a polar bear? Why couldn't he come back before? There were so many unexplained things that it just wasn't enjoyable to read. Perhaps if I'd slowed down and read more carefully it would have made more sense, but I didn't have much interest in that. I'm not sure whether I'll be reading the rest of the series when it comes out.

    I've been waiting for the new book in this series, but I was already worried when I saw how thick it was. Then I read it, and it reminded me of last season of the X Files. There was no characterization left, even of the awesomely cute dragons who are brimming with personality; there was practically no plot left, if by plot you mean that the characters actually do things and don't just discover vague forebodings. If a character in this book ate toast, it would be Cosmic Toast With Vague Forebodin I've been waiting for the new book in this series, but I was already worried when I saw how thick it was.

I agree with the reviewer who said to stop at the first book in this series and treat it like a good stand-alone, which it really is. Somehow the story has just gotten lost (or too Cosmic) along the way.

    Okay, my question here is... WHAT THE *BLEEP*??? This book was terrible. Actually, it started going downhill with the last book. This one went all sci-fi and 'cosmic'. I mean, Ix:risor???

Firestar was getting close to the realms of sheer lunacy, and The Fire Eternal was absolutely ridiculous. Even worse than the 'so bad, it's good'. Chris d'Lacey, if you don't mind me saying so, you are an idiot.

    3 stars. This was a lot like a rollercoaster for me. It had parts that I can say I really enjoyed like the previous 3 books in this series, but for the first time, this book also had parts that I felt were hard to follow and therefore became confusing. Near the end I found myself skim reading about a chapter because I just wasn't interested. Though, saying all that, after reading the last page I am very interested to see what the next book in this series will bring. 3 stars. This was a lot like a rollercoaster for me.

    I believe in rounding up. In essence, this book would rank as 2.5 stars, 50%. I was confused for a good chunk of the book. A lot of the polar bear nonsense was confusing, boring, and seemed to contribute almost nothing to the actual story. While I do appreciate how Chris D'Lacey is trying to delve deeper into the whole concept of dragons and other folklore, this book seemed like it was just too much. I was lost for most of the book.

Then again, I haven't read the last book in literally years (grade eight or nine, I'm now in grade eleven). I've forgotten a lot of the lore and such, but I expected the characters to still be fresh and charismatic as they were in the previous books. They weren't. A lot of the dragons lost their personalities and the humans became insanely boring and predictable. And the end. What can I say about the end? For starters, I was still completely lost at that point. The author kept throwing in all these random events near the end and that made me wonder if there would be another book in the series. In my opinion, the series should have ended a long time ago. Maybe around the first or second book. But I have to say that I won't give up on the series. It holds a lot of sentimental value to me. The first book really inspired me to really have a more serious view about my writing. I was in about grade five or six when I read the first book. It was such a great book. Too bad the series went downhill. I would only recommend this book to those who are completely loyal to the series and wouldn't mind a whole load of bumps in the reading. Read it slowly, and maybe even reread it if you have to.

    "It looked very similar to the screwdriver used by the time travelling hero of the dragons' favourite television programme.' Although this is an incredibly childish seires, there are some real adult elements - death, betrayal, etc. It's been a few years since I read the first three books but this was definitely one of the best...though I would have liked to re-read the others just for clarification - the plot goes all over the place.

I found myself wanting to read more about the dragons at Wayward Crescent when the Artic scenes got too much. I like how Lucy is older, and that d'Lacey combines the fantasy element with modern life, for example, one of the dragon's special abilities is 'IT'. I wish that the book apparently written by David was real. Had a good old shocker at the end, serves as a great hook. A nice and relaxing book to take my mind off university.

    This book was amazing. It was shocking when I found out that David was alive, but as a polar bear. He transformed for a polar bear to a human. It was completely shocking and surpised me in all ways. When I found out that Gwillana turned into a bird was buried in an icecube, I wanted to scream. I don't like Gwillana that much because of what she has done. She was always so evil. The good part is that she helped David only because he forced her too.

When the giant bird appeared, I thought the nine polar bears that protected the artic was going to die. But they didn't. The ending of this book was amazing because David went back to Lucy, Zanna, Liz, and Gazooks. It made me so happy, but sad when he left them again. Davids new daughter Alexa was excited to see him that she ran and jumped into his arms.

    There were so many things about this book that just bugged me. First off, its so confusing! All the G names are driving me crazy! I can't keep track of who they are talking about! Gwedolen, Guinevere, Gwillana, Gadzooks... so annoying! And the fain? What? Commingling? What? So confusing. How exactly does that work? A lot of the time half the things he talks about make no sense and I feel like he's really just making stuff up without any thought of it making sense.

He dies in the fire star and is a story writer. He lives with a little girl named Lucy and her mother Liz Pennywinkle. Lucy believes that David is not dead and tries to find him. He has a dragon named Gadzooks who helps him right stories. David has to over come many problems and wishes it would all end. The setting of this book is the arctic all the Inuit people have died and polar bears are starving and dragons are rising. The conflict is that David is missing and his daughter has to stop the earth god Gaia from punishing people for these changes. The theme of this book is that even if someone is gone they can still help and that even someone young can have an impact on the problem at hand. One example is that David’s daughter has to stop Gaia from punishing humans for letting dragons rise and polar bears starve. Another is that David is gone and yet Lucy believes that he is not and tries to find him. Some extra characters are Gwilliwana who is a sibyl who is evil and wants to catch the fire tear of a dragon to bring them into the world. Gadzooks a writing dragon who helps David write stories. People who like suspense and a fantasy world would like this book because you feel like you are in a fantasy when reading it. I would compare this book to The Hunger Games because in this book you feel like you are in a fantasy world and in the hunger games people are thrown into an arena to fight to the death and to some people it does not seem real. "Fly ahead of us". "Seek out a path. You are our eyes, sibyl" IT shows the authors writing style of fantasy and suspense. Also it shows how the author can show emotion in the writing such as anger in this quote. Excellent book over all great character description and wonderful plot. Very suspenseful and really makes you want to keep reading till the end. I could not drop this book and really felt like I was right there with the characters. The only thing I did not like was the main character of the last book was more of a supporting role in this book. It affected me because it made me feel like everyone has a purpose and that if someone dies you should move on and except the fact that it is natural.

    I am not sure if the continuation of this series was always planned. It it has become increasingly difficult to follow and the cynic in me asks whether the extra books are the result of a compromise of some sort by the author. While I like the attempt to link global problems with interference from cosmic beings, there is much that didn't fit together well and didn't make sense to me. I like the exploration of the dragon myth but along with the few other animals employed (ravens and polar bears) I am not sure if the continuation of this series was always planned.

The appeal to modern new age mysticism and quantum science also seems to be shallow and failed to impress a sense of coherency onto me. Of course, these books are written for children, so the fact my 10 y.o. Daughter became fairly bored by the end, only wanting to read the bits with certain characters would be my strongest argument for withholding stars!

    Is it just me or was the author trying too hard to create a perfect mash-up of fantasy and realism? The plot's gotten very immense and the more I delved into it, the more confusing it had become.

Although I didn't like this as MUCH as I liked the second and third installments of the series, I occasionally find myself enjoying a couple of good moments in it. But the book however, was just all over the place and I'm afraid the characters have somehow lost their essence. Still, the dragons were adorable; they're just the best parts of the series. The mysticism was still fascinating but rather confusing. Despite d'Lacey's disorderly writing-style, I'm still down with the series. All the way to the end.

    Okay, I didn't even finish this book so maybe I'm biased, but seriously, it was too hard to pick back up. There was just this whole looming Arctic souls and mother earth thing, but the original reason I picked up the books was because of the dragon, and now as they are as sparse as the twists and turns, I decided to drop it. A thumbs up to the reference to global warming though. I'm a huge supporter of the against the human activities that are destroying our earth.

Lucy reads the letter that Zanna writes to David every year on Valentine's Day and decides to call Tam Farell to prove to the world David is not dead. So personally though, I really started to fell like Lucy was becoming so argumentative and bossy. I started to hate her and then not to mention she reads one of Zanna's private letters? I was like why would you do that? Why! From there the book gets very interesting and we learn many mysterious things about David that literally blew my mind. Not to mention that things among the bears are starting to heat up and we learn more and more about their roles as well. The ending of course I by far one of the most fast paced part and it left me with tears of happiness.

Among the drama of the Pennykettle household we are taken to the arctic where Polar bears are coming together and with the help of an old enemy in raven form this part of the novel is what truly kept me gripped. I loved this series because its difference, this book however is a little heavy reading its all about environmental awareness and global warming affecting the ice caps and its inhabitants. Somewhere in the 200 pages this book turns from a young teen cute dragon fantasy book to a sci-fi war novel, which is quite sad as the dragons made the novels wonderful. The introduction of the Ix and Pre:men is the downfall to this series and the next two books are even heavier going considering their marketing group. I being in my 20's struggle to keep interest when reading of the fain and their enemy the use of the : in certain words becomes really off putting and does eventually drive me crazy. This book overall was a good read, Gwillana makes the best good/bad guy in the series and with the addition of the polar bears perspective the read is just worth every bit of my time.

So what became of her I can't tell. The dragons in this book are cool and some are not, but I'm sure that wont stop you from reading this book. Lucy and david were teh wons that discovered the clay dragons. They both thuoght it was cool that then dragons could come to life. I don't care to much for dragons but when your reading you got to get a book or series that you would like or enjoy and something you can compare to if you like.

    I really loved the polar bear part of the story. All the mysticism behind it kept me into it. However, although most of the series is written from different perspectives, this time the multiple perspectives didn't really come together well until the end. Sometimes it was a bit frustrating to figure out where the setting was, whether it was at the Pennykettles' house, in the Artic, in Zanna's shop, and so on. I was highly disappointed at first with the way Zanna reacted to that reporter guy. In f I really loved the polar bear part of the story. All the mysticism behind it kept me into it.

I understand that teenagers are known for being difficult, but I felt like the author completely made Lucy a stereotypical character when he added in all the teenage drama. That's the number one thing I disliked about the book. Overall, I think the relationships between the characters and a few of the characters could some work, but the mysticism of the book is interesting.

    This book was an excellent add to the series especially from where the story was left off from the previous book of Davids unfortunate death and left a happy and addicting place to come back to from the previous book. This book added much more character to all of the dragons which was an absolute amazing thing to bring into the series I love it when they show more character to the dragons. They also brought in more character to Davids daughter which showed time while his daughter grew up adding This book was an excellent add to the series especially from where the story was left off from the previous book of Davids unfortunate death and left a happy and addicting place to come back to from the previous book.

They also brought in more character to Davids daughter which showed time while his daughter grew up adding more personality. I did not enjoy how they would flip between chapters to the Polar bears that seemed boring but found some light in the darkness within that and did enjoy the mythology they brought from that adding to the overall series. This series has a strong myth base and how they added more and did not tumble too much along with David death was a happy idea from the author.

    I didn't enjoy it as much as the last book, but still a solid read. Like last time, I had chunks of texts where my eyes just glazed over and I ended up skim-reading, and as I said in my updates, I found the polar bear chapters really boring. The Fain and the Ix were very interesting and I like how we got more of them. The most intriguing part for me was probably the theme of David's mysterious past, which is something that has been hinted at from the beginning but is now becoming quite important I didn't enjoy it as much as the last book, but still a solid read.

With David MIA it was nice to see the story led by three women, I much prefer this older version of Lucy, and seeing Zanna as a mother has been really interesting, she's probably my favourite character. I'm taking a bit of a break from this series now, but I'll get back to it in a few weeks.

    Personal Response: This book was really good. The author is very good at describing the characters emotions. This author writes a lot of teen books that are very good. Plot Summary: The Pennykettles went 5 years without David. Zanna opened a shop, and it is called the Healing Touch. Zanna branded Tam with the mark of Oomara, and erased his memory, so he left Zanna alone. Lucy wanted to find out where David lived, so she teamed up with Tam to figure that out.

Lucy ran after a squirrel, while looking for David's old house, and went right into a portal. Lucy is stuck on Farlowe Island and is forced to make a Darkling. Everyone ends up home and Zanna goes to the gardens with Alexa. Alexa runs to a man, and that man is David. Characterization: Zanna feels lost without David and also feels alone. She has a daughter, but her boyfriend is gone. Throughout the books she goes through changes and eventually finds what she's looking for. When she does, David comes back. Recommendation: I really would recommend this book to people that like fiction. People above the age of 13, because of comprehension. The author did so well wit this book, so I give it a 4 out of 5 stars

I will spoil it for those who want to read but won't get the chance. So the main character is David rain who can take the form of whatever he chooses. In this book it becomes a polar bear. That's all I will spoil. I think the fire eternal was a great book and I am not going to spoil it for those who want to read it. Well...

    I have huge respect for the people reviewing this book who have managed to summarize the plot into a few paragraphs in their review because, honestly, I’m not entirely sure what I read here. I’m really not. I was originally recommended this series on the basis that it’s about a cute family, dragons, and the occasional squirrel friend. That’s exactly what the first book gave me, so I was eager to keep reading. The second book was a bit stranger than I had anticipated. The third one was even more I have huge respect for the people reviewing this book who have managed to summarize the plot into a few paragraphs in their review because, honestly, I’m not entirely sure what I read here. I’m really not. I was originally recommended this series on the basis that it’s about a cute family, dragons, and the occasional squirrel friend. That’s exactly what the first book gave me, so I was eager to keep reading. The second book was a bit stranger than I had anticipated. The third one was even more confusing. But this one? I’m the kind of person who can almost always find something to say, so the fact that this book left me stunned in confusion is… actually pretty impressive. I don’t know how Chris d’Lacey managed to write this. I barely managed to read it. Here’s the thing: I love dragons. Everyone who knows me knows that I love dragons and was probably a dragon in a past life. I expected this series to be a bunch of cute dragon stories for the younger crowd, and even though I don’t exactly fit into that crowd anymore, I can still appreciate a good elementary to middle-grade book once in a while. The series was going fine until it changed from being about cute dragon stories and squirrel friends to being about the Arctic, polar bears, and some weird things called the Fain. That all being said and confusion pushed aside, there were a few things I enjoyed. I found that the three bears added into the story provided an interesting perspective that I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. I also love little Bonnington, since I’m such a sucker for cute animal companions. And even though I’m not a huge fan of children, little Alexa was adorable and I’m glad that she was a likable child instead of, well, an annoying one. You know the ones I’m talking about. Unfortunately, it all wraps back around to confusion. I had almost decided to DNF this book before I even made it to the halfway mark, but me, being the stubborn fool that I am, decided to power through it and finish the book since I don’t like leaving things unfinished. Look where that got me. It got me very, very confused. The plot was a mess. The whole book was all over the place and it was absolutely nothing like the first book that made me want to read the rest of the series. Honestly? I’m not sure I can ever finish this series after this book. It was just… nope. I signed up for dragons, man, not polar bears and inter-dimensional travel. Yep, you read that right. Inter-dimensional travel. Have fun explaining that one to your kids. Honestly, you’re best off reading the first book of the series and never continuing since this mess is what you have to look forward to.

    The Last Dragon Chronicles: The Fire Eternal By: Chris D’Lacey The Fire Eternal takes place in modern times, five years after the events of the third book in the series, Fire Star. Five years since the main character, David Rain, disappeared in the Arctic. Presently, David’s partner, Zanna, and their five-year old daughter, Alexa, are still living with Liz and Lucy Pennykettle in Scrubbley, Massachusetts. Their cat, Bonnington, is still being occupied by a creature only present in someone’s thou The Last Dragon Chronicles: The Fire Eternal By: Chris D’Lacey The Fire Eternal takes place in modern times, five years after the events of the third book in the series, Fire Star. Five years since the main character, David Rain, disappeared in the Arctic. Presently, David’s partner, Zanna, and their five-year old daughter, Alexa, are still living with Liz and Lucy Pennykettle in Scrubbley, Massachusetts. Their cat, Bonnington, is still being occupied by a creature only present in someone’s thoughts called The Fain. The Fain and an even more evil division of their kind, called the Ix, will prove to be an important piece to the plot’s puzzle. One day, when Zanna was in her shop, a journalist named Tam Farrell walks in and acts charming yet odd in a way. Little did Zanna know that this man was sent by Lucy to get information out of Zanna about David and his mysterious disappearance. Behind the scenes, Lucy is heartbroken about David’s death and actually believes that he never died. She is trying in every way she can to alert more people about David’s causes for the environment and to find more information about his past. Lucy’s investigations bring her far away from home and into a land that is only in her mind; or is it? All the while, a mystifying event in the Arctic is occurring that will change the world. Chris D’Lacey will leave you on the edge of your seat as you unravel the interesting plot involving polar bears, The Fain, dragons, the spirit Gaia, and, of course, The Fire Eternal. I did enjoy the “Gordian’s Knot” that Chris D’Lacey set up for me to untangle as I read this interesting book 4. With about four plots running almost parallel until cumulating at the very end, the average teenage reader and some adults will enjoy the shocking twists and turns in every chapter. The book does have literary merit and exhibits readability as you will have no trouble grasping the story. The book also does a very nice job of picking up right where it left off by summarizing the events of the last book in creative ways. As you read further into the book, you will have moments where everything seems to connect and then realize that yet another twist keeps you wondering. Major themes in the book, and the series, is lore, mythology, and environmentalism. The moral message in the book ties into these themes. Lastly, I enjoyed reading this book as much as I enjoyed the rest of the series and I am looking forward to reading Dark Fire.

    When I first picked up this book, I was a bit weary. The first three books of the series by Chris D'Lacey were an interesting group of books, and were incredibly enticing. This book brings to life clay figures in a way that no author can match, and he does it well. I also appreciate that his whole book theme is original. I have read many books that I can match to another book in similarity, but this one is its own category. Now to pick apart the actual book.

I have read many books that I can match to another book in similarity, but this one is its own category. Now to pick apart the actual book. I thought it was good, but it definitely was nothing close to the first two in comparison. *Spoiler Alert* Seeing that the main character of the series is already dead by this book, I found it hard to be as interested. What the author gave in this final book was the "left over" characters from previous books he wrote and a few new ones. A lot of the time, I caught myself wondering what was going on, and why certain things were happening. While clay dragons coming to life is fictional, the rest of the previous books were quite realistic... until I got to this book. D'Lacey must have gotten a little too carried away with his imagination. I found that after I finished, I felt empty because the Fire Eternal flipped the whole series and completely changed everything. I wish I could or could have enjoyed reading this book as much as I would have when I was younger. Oh well, at least I can say I've read it.
