Review

So, this is book 2 in the They Found Dragons series and it is interesting but also still kind-of dark… There is some violence, weird magic, and overall the book is kind-of dark…

In this book Jack has now landed on the toxic earth full of dragons with his team. Sent to kill the dragon queens, but much to their surprise, their are people living on earth already… and they worship the dragons… Now Jack has to find out what is really going on and if the dragons are really bad at all…

So… the book was interesting and had a lot of cool plot twists. But there is violence, and parts of the book are kind-of dark. The dragons give their queen’s milk to people so they can breathe the toxic air, but they have to serve the dragons instead. Which is kind-of gross…

There is also a lot of violence in these books… People and kids get poisoned, hurt, fall and die and more… There is mention of bodies and dead stuff, but nothing is grossly described but if you get a little uncomfortable about that this book is not for you…

Over all, the book is clean and interesting but it isn’t exactly a happy book… So you have been warned… Adios! -The Young Llama Reader.

Pros

  • Adventurous.
  • Christian-friendly.

Cons

  • Violence, dark and slightly weird…

It is said a child will lead them. But lead them where?

Jack is just 12, born on an Ark orbiting Earth among 169 survivors of a global apocalypse who eagerly await the planet’s restoration so they can return to the surface. With supplies dangerously low, the time for waiting is over. Humanity must return now or die among the stars.

Unfortunately there is a problem. A big one. Dragons have inexplicably risen from Earth’s ashes. Worse, they emit a global toxin deadly to all over the age of puberty. After much debate, the Ark’s leaders realize that humanity’s only hope is to send teams of specially trained children to hunt and eliminate the dragon queen.

But Jack is frail and deemed unworthy for the dangerous mission.

So begins a tale leads readers, young and old alike, on a journey with Jack, the child who will lead them all in the most unlikely of ways. A journey to an Earth they could not have imagined. An Earth where humanity’s fear takes physical form as dragons that can only be defeated through a love that casts out all fear.
