Review

This is the 3rd and final book in the And They Found Dragons series and it is a pretty good end to a good series… But boy is it suspenseful and action-driven!

Jack has now found the truth of the dragons and hopes to bring it to the rest of the humans left on the poisoned earth. But the red dragons are controlling them through their queen and Jack’s only hope of saving them might be joining them… But will he make it out alive knowing the truth in time to save the rest of the human race? Or will he fall to the same fate as them…

Ok, these books are clean and interesting, good for kids I guess? But boy are they kind-of dark! Yes there is an uplifting message but it seems to be wrapped in a whole lot of violence, death, and evil dragons!!!!!!

Look, I am a happy person, a ray of sunshine with a little bit of hurricane. I don’t like darker books! I want romance, adventure, some action, happy humor and a happy ending. Yes this book has adventure and a good ending but it does not make you smile. I didn’t laugh, I wasn’t happy, it was like I was more in suspense the entire time. Which is fine, but for a kids book? Eh.

Over all, I don’t mind the series but I wouldn’t be giving it to any kids I know just because it’s not a happy kind-of book. I do suggest it, but you have been warned. Happy Readings! -The Young Llama Reader.

Pros

  • Christian-friendly.
  • Great for boys.
  • Very clean.

Cons

  • Lots of violence and fighting…

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.
