Publisher's Summary

The kids at school call Billy "Dragon Breath" for good reason. His breath is bad! It isn't the normal, morning-mouth bad; it's the hot-as-fire, "don't-you-dare-get-near-me" bad. And hearing "Dragon Breath" ringing in his ears, he constantly tries to cool his oral volcano. Trouble erupts when his hot breath sets off the fire sprinklers in the boys' restroom at school, and his parents learn that they've kept their secret for too long. Billy finally discovers the secret. His father was once a dragon!

Now that's a piece of news a guy doesn't deal with every day! Billy feels betrayed, alien, lost. When his father reverts to his dragon form, and they're both chased by dragon slayers, he learns to trust his father again, battling the slayers with weapons of steel and spirit. Bonnie, an orphan, tries to find a home, someone to love her, even though she feels like a freak because of a body feature that she calls a deformity, her dragon wings, inherited from her now dead dragon mother. She discovers that her love for others and her faith in a Creator hold the answers she is looking for.

Not great, but not bad

Plot works pretty well, though the ending suffers from "sequelitis." Lots of Christian allusions/symbolism, not very well-elucidated but not obnoxious. We listened during a family driving trip; my eight-year-old was enthralled and the adults reasonably entertained.

very predictable

What disappointed you about Raising Dragons?

the reader... no depth in charters emotions

Would you ever listen to anything by Bryan Davis again?

no... i like kids stories but his story was very predictable... the excitement just wasn't there...

What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?

the pace he reads at...

Any additional comments?

for me the reader inability to add depth to the characters what did it in for me...

Good Story

missing little bits and pieces from the book... just a few words, but when you are reading along, it throws you off...

Revisiting one of my favorite books

A few bugs in the audiobook, but overall still a great story. Wish Davis stuck with multicast, though.

Wonderul

I love this series of books. I read this and the "Oracle's of Fire" series several years ago, but am enjoying the audio versions now.
