  1. I don t know why people are giving this such good reviews The only books in the series I liked were the first few Then it seemed like d Lacey was just throwing in twists and changing the timeline or whatever just for the heck of it.The ending was just stupid Turns out the whole thing was just written by David who wrote it organically because d Lacey wanted to give a excuse to why the story is all over the place for science.And you know the author didn t care when he made the book within the book [...]

  2. Review originally posted on ThirstforFictionBefore the secrets of the tapestry of the battle of Isenfier can be discovered, first, we must tell of the legendary Agawin, a young boy in the prehistory of time, when dragons still roamed this earth in all their magnificence He shall tell of the quest for the last dragon, Galen, and his guard high up the mountain peaks of Kasgerden, ready to shed his fire tear and return his auma to the eternal fire of Gaia But before even that comes his battle with [...]

  3. Words cannot even comprehend the beauty and enchantment that lies within this book The Last Dragon Chronicles has been my favourite series for many years, and I suspect it will remain that way for a long time This novel is gripping, venturing into history and the true past that has inspired almost every event up until now Whilst heartbreaking at times, it leaves you satisfied with the knowledge you have A brilliant conclusion to a magical series I will never forget the way these books changed my [...]

  4. The end is finally here, its been a bit of a roller coaster and sometimes aggravatingly confusing but what an ending Considering the last penultimate book was set in an alternate world, you easily slip back into a the original characters and some new ones I wont lie, I got confused, I got angry and I cried than once I started these books when I was eight and soon it would be over It was only after that I realised that you read the first one when you re fairly young and as you get older, so the [...]

  5. I have been reading this series for the past five years, since fourth grade, when I got the first few books, to now, with a week until my last day of eighth grade It will be hard to leave the series behind.I loved everything about this book EVERYTHING The only thing that I didn t like was the fact that it s the last book in the series I will never forget them Hrrrrrrr

  6. I think I need to read them again, but remembering from when I last read them, I could make no sense out of the last two in the series at all.

  7. What an end to an amazing series I think the first one will always be my favourite when with David we meet the Pennykettles and their clay dragons, David s confusion as he tries to come to terms with the fact that they are alive Onwards through fire tears, ice caps, polar bears and environmental messages, to darklings, physics and alternative timelines and paradoxes.This series takes you on a bit of a rollercoaster and as David and Chris d Lacey both explain, it has been an organic evolution of [...]

  8. Imagine if the world you live in was the exact same as it is now Simple right Now imagine that same reality, but with a hidden world of dragons Dragons that can walk, talk, fix objects, make potions, see all, hear all, read, write, and of course fly and breathe fire That is the world David Rain, Zanna Martindale, Tam Ferrell Elizabeth, Arthur, and Lucy Pennykettle all live in The dragons are starting to repopulate our home and with them the Ix, evil being who wish to rule the earth David, Zanna, [...]

  9. The last book in the Last Dragon Chronicles series and I just can t handle this too many feels I started reading this series when I was ten years old and I ve kept reading as the books were released My love of dragons didn t begin with these books but it certainly helped it grow These books made me look at writing and creativity differently as David Rain wrote and changed reality or Liz crafted dragons out of clay I love these stories how I love Harry Potter because the stories grew with me, bec [...]

  10. I can honestly say I ve grown up with these books since I picked up The Fire Within at a Barnes Noble in eighth grade I just got done with my junior year of college I know for me personally, I feel like these books have grown with me, starting out pretty innocently and becoming serious as they went on This was a great conclusion to an awesome series At first I was confused that the focus was on backstory, but I came to enjoy the perspective and it really helped you understand the lives and moti [...]

  11. This whole series is absolutely incredible, and I will probably re read it time and time again The Fire Ascending was probably my favorite book in the series because of the way Chris d Lacey incorporated a completely different story line and brought it to a fulfilling and conclusive end.

  12. I hope that this one is about the real David and Zanna, not David and Rosa And why did he have that happen was it the world that came when they were all vaporized Was it a probable reality of slightly different versions of David and Zanna and Arthur and Liz and the rest

  13. The ending to my favorite book series ever Everything about it was beautifully crafted The only thing I don t like is that there won t be any pennykettle dragons after this Hrrrrr.

  14. I started this series long ago Sadly it is only now that I have gotten around to finishing it From those first books I read it seemed pretty straight forward Little did I know how quickly the series would change The conclusion to this series was one of the most unique ones I have ever read Indeed, if that was how I rated books, this would easily be a five I was surprised at the end how all of the magic no longer existed It is hard to tell if when the earth was reset if it was just no longer an i [...]

  15. 6 The Fire Ascending is the last of the series It is really confusing because it starts as what you think is the book of Agawain It is technically a journey of Agawain s life It starts out with him going to find the dragon Galen because he is dieing If they get to the dragon when it has recently shed its tear, you get special blessings As he is hiking he meets Voss a tainted man with a bad unicorn, he warns them not to go to Galen or he will kill them He is also aided by a sybil Voss s plan is t [...]

  16. The Fire AscendingBy Chris d LaceyThis book is the last book in The Dragon Chronicles A seven book series that sends chills down your spine It really grasps your attention so you cannot put it down Of course I m talking about The Fire Ascending It s a magical fantasy world that takes place on Earth Two travelers from Coop ern ica emerge in the timeline of Gwendolen, a human who caught Gawain s A giant, scary dragon fire tear, his source of life She rides into the ocean on the back of a brown bea [...]

  17. Weird, weird, weird, in all the ways I like This book is the conclusion of a seven book long metaphor for the creative process The first half provides the background and context we have been missing for several of the events of the past three books, with some interesting suggestions relating to the events of the first three Much of the second half is an extended denouement for the series as a whole, with the last little bit being something of a commentary about the series s convoluted developmen [...]

  18. Review to follow The story line for The Last Dragon Chronicles is fairly good, especially the first three installments The Fire Within, Icefire and Fire Star But as the series goes on, it loses its whimsy and becomes way metaphysical I kept finding myself wishing for the silly mayhem and the little clay dragons that may or may not come alive that we saw in the first few books.As for The Fire Ascending itself, it was my least favorite in the series It started out interestingly enough but by the [...]

  19. Wow This is a stunning book It s absolutely not my usual genre but I let my 1st Grade students choose books for me but I loved every minute of it It s beautifully written with incredible imagination, painting glorious technicolor pictures in the reader s head I stayed up all night to get it finished, but had to force myself to slow down to really appreciate the depth of the writing It s amazing, and I loved it.

  20. This is a great book to end the series because it shows all parts of the story coming together to fight one evil and make everything back to normal and the ending moment which show David the character talk about the books in the series as if he made them was very interesting

  21. These books have so many sudden turns that I could tell while reading this series that it was written organically It got annoying at times but I do appreciate the artistic courage it takes to write books using this kind of methodology.This last book is no exception It took some weird turns but over all it was a decent ending to a very entertaining fantasy series.

  22. Although the series gradually became confusing, the last book was amazing I was crying in the middle of language arts class because of it.

  23. There is no structure to this series I cannot understand why I enjoyed it enough to keep buying them when I was younger.

  24. Nearly didn t read it but I m really glad I did Lost hope with the middle books in the series ut this was back to D lacey s best.Ties all the books together

  25. This last book in the series was meant to tie everything together I guess it kind of did Honestly I m glad to be done with this series.

  26. This book starts out with a boy named agawin who is a seers apprentice this was long ago times when dragons where alive agawin goes through tons of adventures including gwilanna, time traveling, David and rosa, the Arctic and agawin dying and living again the person he will be is a she alexa.I thought this book was amazing, adventurous, exiting, and a good story to wrap up The Last Dragon Chronicles.

  27. updated version A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end You live several lives while reading William Styron, Conversations with William Styron This is typically one of the most perfect quotes to go with this series for me I mean every time I picked up one of these bad boys and started reading it was like I was living another persons life, and when I finally put down this last book inThe Last Dragon ChroniclesI sat there and just thought to myself Ho [...]

  28. To be fair I didn t read much of the book at all I stopped just after Agawin met David and Rosa, but by that point I pretty much dropped the book out of boredom But don t get me wrong the fact that it s boring isn t the only thing wrong with this book This is going to be a long review, but the reason behind that is that I loved the series and then the author just killed it d Lacey pretty much takes everything that the series initially evoked the adorable and intriguing dragons, the romance betwe [...]

  29. The Fire AscendingBy Chris D LaceyMay 2012Fantasy The book is split into 10 parts with each telling a different part of the story The first few are about the origins of one of the main characters that has been a mystery in the previous books The next few are about an alternate timeline caused by the bad guys winning a battle in the future and then travel to the past and change everything The main characters then have to fix this and they all are either taken to the past by the bad guys or were t [...]

  30. I really don t know what to say For one thing, having finished this series when I started it about 10 years ago is something to be remarked on That I vaguely plan to read it all in a row someday is noteworthy still, as I rarely reread things and doing so with The Last Dragon Chronicles will place it among the ranks of Narnia, Harry Potter, and the Truth series by Dawn Cook As for the individual book, I don t really know what to say Though not as different from the rest of the series as Fire Wor [...]
