Description from the amazon:
Dragons are enslaving humankind and a black egg signals the end of the world.

Jason Masters must journey to another realm and join forces with a slave girl named Koren to rescue the captives and save two worlds from destruction.

What if the Legends Are True?

Jason Masters doubted the myths: people taken through a portal to another realm and enslaved by dragons. But when his brother is taken, he must uncover the truth and find the portal before it's too late.

Once he's through the portal, he meets Koren, a slave in the dragons' realm, who struggles to destroy a black egg prophesied to doom all mankind. Jason and Koren must work together to save their two worlds before the dragons learn that their secrets have been discovered.

In Starlighter, bestselling author Bryan Davis masterfully weaves fantasy and inspiration into a captivating novel for young adults.

Amusing quote:
A dragon can't huggle.
A dragon can't snuggle.
A dragon's scales are hard and cold.
The dragons make us struggle.

Zombie sighting:
Would she transform into a mindless zombie who believed love was hatched from bondage, that the Code was useless and impossible to obey, that her sacrifice for friends caused the hearts of ment to fail?
- location 361, chapter 20

Series: Dragons of Starlight
Warrior - just released Jan 2011

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): litmus finger
The dragons in here are mostly baaaaad. Save for one who you met during the dragons event here.

You are in for some action (swords and photon guns) and adventure (journey to an otherworld) in this engrossing dragon tale (with a cliffhanger ending). But, the story still is good as a stand-alone.

  1. Lol, I truly love that quote, can't snuggle hihi

  2. Liked the review.
    And the idea of so many elements mixing.
    Dragons and photon guns? Let me have one of both!

  3. Nice! I like that quote :) Great post!
    (not an entry)

  4. Great quote. I'm loving all the dragons.

  5. Didn't even know about Warrior. Going to add to my wish list for sure, thanks!
    You and I both gave the same rating for Starlighter though.

  6. The cover of STARLIGHTER is great. The one in WARRIOR does not appeal to me that much.
